  pages={431 - 440}
Myrmaeciella caraganae was recollected in and around Vienna, Austria and found to be morphologically different generically from the type species of Myrmaeciella, M. endoleuca. We redescribe M. caraganae in the new genus Stromatonectria. Phylogenetic analyses of LSU sequences place the genus in the Bionectriaceae, Hypocreales. S. caraganae occurs on branches of Caragana spp., Colutea arborescens and Laburnum anagyroides of the Fabaceae. It is characterized by spheroid perithecia partly or… 
Reassessment of Allantonectria, phylogenetic position of Thyronectroidea, and Thyronectria caraganae sp. nov
Thyronectria caraganae is described as a new species from herbarium specimens of Caragana arborescens collected in the Ukraine, characterised by morphology of the sexual morph and by DNA sequence data, which place it within the T. austroamericana - T. rhodochlora clade with high support.
Stilbocrea walteri sp. nov., an unusual species of Bionectriaceae
The new species Stilbocrea walteri is described and illustrated from Quercus ilex collected in Portugal and differs from S. macrostoma in dark olive green to blackish ascomata basally immersed in a stroma, KOH+ and LA+ ascomATA and the lack of a stilbella-like asexual morph on natural substrate and pure culture.
Ijuhya vitellina sp. nov., a novel source for chaetoglobosin A, is a destructive parasite of the cereal cyst nematode Heterodera filipjevi
Ijuhya vitellina (Ascomycota, Hypocreales, Bionectriaceae), encountered in wheat fields in Turkey, is newly described on the basis of phylogenetic analyses, morphological characters and life-style related inferences and is the only species of the genus known to parasitise nematodes and produce microsclerotia.
Notes for genera: Ascomycota
This work is intended to provide the foundation for updating the ascomycete component of the “Without prejudice list of generic names of Fungi” published in 2013, which will be developed into a list of protected generic names.
Towards a natural classification and backbone tree for Sordariomycetes
An updated outline of the Sordariomycetes and a backbone tree incorporating asexual and sexual genera in the class are provided and new links between sexual and asexual genera and thus synonymies are provided.


Nectria eustromatica sp. nov., an exceptional species with a hypocreaceous stroma
A new species with remarkable morphology, Nectria eustromatica, is described, based on morphology of the teleomorph and anamorph, ecology and molecular phylogenetic analyses. Nectria eustromatica is
Hypocrea voglmayrii sp. nov. from the Austrian Alps represents a new phylogenetic clade in Hypocrea/Trichoderma.
The holomorph of the new species Hypocrea voglmayrii (Hypocreales, Ascomycota, Fungi) is described by a combined approach, using morphology of the teleomorph, morphology of the anamorph, culture
Prosthecium species with Stegonsporium anamorphs on Acer.
European species of Hypocrea Part I. The green-spored species
This work is a preliminary account of Hypocrea and their Trichoderma anamorphs in Europe, based on the ITS identification routine using fresh material, on species described earlier without molecular data and on species recently described but not collected during this project.
Phylogenetic relationships of the downy mildews (Peronosporales) and related groups based on nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences
The results confirm the major division between the Pythiales and Peronosporales on the one hand and the Saprolegniales, Leptomitales, and Rhipidiales on the other and show the Sclerosporale was shown to be polyphyletic.
Two divergent intragenomic rDNA ITS2 types within a monophyletic lineage of the fungus Fusarium are nonorthologous.
The results suggest that the ancestral ITS2 types may have arisen following an ancient interspecific hybridization or gene duplication which occurred prior to the evolutionary radiation of the Gibberella fujikuroi complex and related species of Fusarium.
Phylogenetic relationships among ascomycetes: evidence from an RNA polymerse II subunit.
Findings show that a slowly evolving protein-coding gene such as RPB2 is useful for diagnosing phylogenetic relationships among fungi, and suggests that fruiting body formation and forcible discharge of ascospores were characters gained early in the evolution of the Ascomycota.
The hypocrealean fungi (Ascomycetes, Hypocreales).
The taxonomic history of the order Hypocreales (Fungi, Ascomycetes) is reviewed and a modified characterization of theHypocreales with one family, Hypocreaceae, and the acce...
Molecular diagnostics of clinical strains of filamentous Basidiomycetes.
Six strains of filamentous Basidiomycetes were found to belong to the teleomorph genera Schizophyllum or Coprinus, whereas five could not be identified unequivocally.
