A generic key is presented to delimit Torula from seven hyphomycete genera whose type species were at one time included in the genus or whose conidium ontogeny and conidium development appear similar or superficially similar to that of Torula herbarum, the type of the genus. In Bahusaganda, two new species are described (B. elliseverhartii and B. simmonsii spp. nov.) and three new combinations made (B. ambrosiae, B. elaeodes, and B. heteromorpha combs. nov.). In Bahusandhika, one new species (B… 
Lentimurisporaceae, a New Pleosporalean Family with Divergence Times Estimates
A new hyphomycetous genus Lentimurispora is introduced, characterized by micronematous conidiophores, monoblastic conidiogenous cells, and muriform, lenticular conidia with dark brown central cells and paler peripheral cells and the results showed that the new family was diverged approximately 78 (49–118) MYA.
Molecular taxonomy and morphological characterization reveal new species and new host records of Torula species (Torulaceae, Pleosporales)
Four new species and two new host records of Torula (Torulaceae, Pleosporales) are described and illustrated from herbaceous litter collected in Italy and Thailand to infer phylogenetic relationships and discuss phylogenetic affinities with morphologically similar species.
New host and geographic records of five pleosporalean hyphomycetes associated with Musa spp. (Banana)
Phylogenetic analyses of a combined SSU, LSU, ITS, RPB2 and TEF DNA sequence dataset further justified the taxonomic placements of these five taxa in the Periconiaceae and Torulaceae.
Multigene phylogeny and taxonomy of Dendryphion hydei and Torula hydei spp. nov. from herbaceous litter in northern Thailand
Multigene phylogenetic analyses of a combined LSU, SSU, TEF1-α, RPB2 and ITS DNA sequence dataset generated from maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference analyses indicate that T. hydei forms a distinct lineage and basal to D. fici within Torulaceae.
Morphology and multigene phylogeny reveal new genus and species of Torulaceae from freshwater habitats in northwestern Yunnan, China
21 fresh collections of Torulaceae from submerged wood in freshwater are characterized based on morphological characters and phylogenetic analyses of combined ITS, LSU, RPB2 and TEF1α sequence data, and multigene phylogeny supports the family Torul Families as a strongly supported monophyletic lineage with clear intergeneric boundaries basal to Roussoellaceae.
Refined families of Sordariomycetes
This treatment of the class Sordariomycetes provides up-to-date DNA based phylogenies for 45 orders and 163 families and provides general descriptions and illustrate the type genus or another genus, where the placement has generally been confirmed with molecular data.
A new genus and species for the globally important, multihost root pathogen Thielaviopsis basicola
It is shown that isolates of T. basicola grouped in a well-supported lineage distinct from other genera in the Ceratocystidaceae, here described as Berkeleyomyces gen. nov, and a new combination as B. rouxiae sp.nov is introduced.
Torula goaensis, a new asexual ascomycetous fungus in Torulaceae
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of internal transcribed spacers and large subunit regions shows the placement of Torula goaensis in the genus Torula, which is placed in the family Torulaceae in Pleosporales.
Fungal diversity notes 1036–1150: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions on genera and species of fungal taxa
The present study describes one new family (Pseudoberkleasmiaceae in Dothideomycetes), five new genera (Caatingomyces, Cryptoschizotrema, Neoacladium, Paramassaria and Trochilispora), 71 new species and twelve new combinations.
Towards incorporating asexual fungi in a natural classification: checklist and notes 2012–2016
This paper updates the existing outline of a sexual genera and provides taxonomic notes for asexual genera which have been introduced since 2012 and nearly 320 genera have been reported or linked with a sexual morph, but most genera lack sexual morphs.


Some notes on Torula
All CBS strains maintained under the name Torula are discussed and new combinations are proposed in Polypaecilum Smith and Moniliella Stolk & Dakin, and a new species of Scytalidium Pesante is described.
Revision of Torula species. Rutola, a new genus for Torula graminis
Torula graminis differs from T. herbarum in lacking the diagnostic coronate conidiogenous cell that is characteristic of the genus Torula and is, therefore, placed in the new Hyphomycete genus Rutola, as Rutola graminis n.comb.
The Genera of Fungi - fixing the application of the type species of generic names – G 2: Allantophomopsis, Latorua, Macrodiplodiopsis, Macrohilum, Milospium, Protostegia, Pyricularia, Robillarda, Rotula, Septoriella, Torula, and Wojnowicia
This paper focuses on 12 genera of microfungi, 11 of which the type species are neo- or epitypified here: Latorua gen. nov, and three new families: Macrodiplodiopsisceae, Macrohilaceae, and Robillardaceae.
Nueva especie de Dwayabeeja (Fungi Imperfecti) de Cuba
A new species of the fungus genus Owsyabeeja, prevtously monotyplc, genus for the Western Hemlsphere, is described from material collected in Sierra del Rosario, Cuba.
Additional Hyphomycetes from freshwater swamps and hammocks
Collections of submerged, decayed plant material from freshwater swamps in Illinois and hammocks in Florida have yielded two new species, Intercalarispora nigra gen. et sp. nov. and Monodictys
The need for further studies on the precise method of conidium development is stressed because this promises to provide the most stable character for the classification of Fungi Imperfecti as a whole.
