Abstract The genus Togninia ( Diaporthales, Togniniaceae ) is here monographed along with its Phaeoacremonium ( Pm. ) anamorphs. [] Key Result austroafricanum ), T. krajdenii, T. parasitica, T. rubrigena and T. viticola. New species of Phaeoacremonium include Pm. novae-zealandiae (teleomorph T. novae-zealandiae ), Pm. iranianum, Pm. sphinctrophorum and Pm. theobromatis. Species can be identified based on their cultural and morphological characters, supported by DNA data derived from partial sequences of the…
Phylogenetic and morphotaxonomic revision of Ramichloridium and allied genera
TLDR
The phylogeny of the genera Periconiella, Ramichloridium, Rhinocladiella and Veronaea was explored by means of partial sequences of the 28S (LSU) rRNA gene and the ITS region and a new genus, Radulidium, is erected.
Coniochaeta (Lecythophora), Collophora gen. nov. and Phaeomoniella species associated with wood necroses of Prunus trees
TLDR
In a preliminary inoculation study, pathogenicity was confirmed for some of the new species on apricot, peach or plum wood and the new genus Collophora is proposed, comprising five species that frequently occur in necrotic peach and nectarine wood.
New acremonium-like species in the Bionectriaceae and Plectosphaerellaceae
TLDR
Based on phenotypic characters and molecular phylogenetic analyses, two new Acremonium species, A. moniliforme and A. dimorphosporum, are described and a new genus Brunneomyces is proposed based on three species, including B. brunnescens, B. europaeus and B. hominis.
A fissitunicate ascus mechanism in the Calosphaeriaceae, and novel species of Jattaea and Calosphaeria on Prunus wood
TLDR
Findings suggest that some species of Jattaea are true members of the Calosphaeriaceae, though the phylogenetic relation of the type, J. algeriensis, remains unknown.
Three new Phaeoacremonium species on grapevines in New Zealand
TLDR
The three new species of Phaeoacremonium found in discoloured wood of grapevine are described and show subtle morphological differences in the structure and size of the phialides and conidia, and no conclusion can be made about whether they were imported in the recent past on infected plants, or if they are indigenous to New Zealand.
Phaeoacremonium species associated with Eutypa dieback and esca of grapevines in Algeria.
TLDR
Phaeoacremonium species were more frequently associated with Eutypa dieback than esca symptoms, which correlates with their frequent association with sectorial brown necrosis (V-shaped necrosis).
A review of the phylogeny and biology of the Diaporthales
TLDR
The ascomycete order Diaporthales is reviewed based on recent phylogenetic data that outline the families and integrate related asexual fungi and Pseudovalsaceae is recognized in a restricted sense, and Sydowiellaceae is circumscribed more broadly than originally conceived.
Towards a natural classification and backbone tree for Sordariomycetes
TLDR
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.

Togninia (Calosphaeriales) is confirmed as teleomorph of Phaeoacremonium by means of morphology, sexual compatibility and DNA phylogeny.
TLDR
It is concluded that T. minima is the teleomorph of Pm.
New genera in the Calosphaeriales: Togniniella and its anamorph Phaeocrella, and Calosphaeriophora as anamorph of Calosphaeria
TLDR
During a survey of perithecial ascomycetes in New Zealand, two collections of a Togninia-like fungus were made on decayed wood and a Phaeoacremonium-like anamorph was found, confirming that the New Zealand fungus represents a new genus very close to Calosphaeria.
First Report of Perithecia of Phaeoacremonium viticola on Grapevine (Vitis vinifera) and Ash Tree (Fraxinus latifolia) in California.
TLDR
Perithecia found in naturally infected vineyards with symptoms of esca disease were the first time that P. viticola has been linked to a sexual state and Morphologically these perithecia resemble those of Togninia spp.
Molecular systematics of the Sordariales: the order and the family Lasiosphaeriaceae redefined
TLDR
Two new orders, Coniochaetales and Chaetosphaeriales, are recognized and the Boliniaceae is accepted in the Boliniales, and the Nitschkiaceae is acceptance in the Coronophorales.
Phylogenetic analysis places the Phialophora-like anamorph genus Cadophora in the Helotiales
Using ITS and 28S (LSU) rDNA sequences, members of the genus Cadophora are shown to be anamorphs of the Helotiales (discomycetes) and distinct from the morphologically similar anamorph genus
Pleurostomophora, an anamorph of Pleurostoma (Calosphaeriales), a new anamorph genus morphologically similar to Phialophora
TLDR
The formation of perithecia from single-ascospore isolates of Pleurostoma (Pl.) ootheca showed it to have a homothallic mating system and a new anamorph genus, PleuroStomophora (P.), was proposed to accommodate these species.
Convergent Origins of Ambrosia Fungi
TLDR
The genus Ambrosiella appears to be non- monophyletic based on evidence from cladistic anal- ysis of characters derived from nuclear encoded small subunit (18S) rDNA sequences, and the role of strong selection pressure for insect dispersal features, not only for sexual states, but for conidial and yeast forms as well.
PHIALEMONIUM, A NEW ANAMORPH GENUS INTERMEDIATE BETWEEN PHIALOPHORA AND ACREMONIUM
TLDR
To establish a practical system of classification for these anamorph genera, they should not be split further, though more natural groups that correlate with their appropriate teleomorph genera can sometimes be distinguished at the subgeneric level (Morgan-Jones and Gams, 1982).
Species of Phaeoacremonium Associated with Infections in Humans and Environmental Reservoirs in Infected Woody Plants
TLDR
Nine new Phaeoacremonium species, of which six were obtained as etiologic agents of human opportunistic infection, are reported and can be identified based on their cultural and morphological characters and strongly supported in phylogenetic analyses of partial sequences of the actin, β-tubulin, and calmodulin genes.
ITS and β-tubulin phylogeny of Phaeoacremonium and Phaeomoniella species
Based on ITS and β-tubulin sequence data of 33 isolates, the newly introduced genus, Phaeomoniella was confirmed as being distinct from Phaeoacremonium (Pm.). Phylogeny inferred from DNA sequences
