The genus Wallemia comprises xerophilic species. Based on parenthesome ultrastructure it has been linked to the Filobasidiales (basidiomycetes). Species show a unique type of conidiogenesis, including basauxic development of fertile hyphae, segregation of conidial units more or less basipetally, and disarticulation of conidial units into mostly four arthrospore-like conidia. Wallemia is known from air, soil, dried food (causing spoilage), and salt. It can be isolated from hypersaline water of… 
Xerophilic fungal genus Wallemia - bioactive inhabitants of marine solar salterns and salty food.
TLDR
The article aims to present the taxonomy, ecology, physiology and so far described molecular mechanisms of adaptations to life at low water activity, as well as bioactive potential of the genus Wallemia, a phylogenetically ancient taxon and a taxonomic maverick within Basidiomycota.
Basidioascus and Geminibasidium: a new lineage of heat-resistant and xerotolerant basidiomycetes
TLDR
Based on morphological observations and molecular phylogeny of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS), two genera of heat-resistant and xerotolerant basidiomycetes were isolated from soil samples and are classified in a new order, Geminibasidiales, and are taxonomically assigned to the class WallemiomycETes.
Wallemia peruviensis sp. nov., a new xerophilic fungus from an agricultural setting in South America
TLDR
Isolates of the xerophilic genus Wallemia were obtained from the rooftop of a house made of red brick and cement in an agronomic field planted with common beans and maize in Pachacamac, Lima, Peru and were shown to represent a novel species, described as W. peruviensis sp.
Genome and transcriptome sequencing of the halophilic fungus Wallemia ichthyophaga: haloadaptations present and absent
TLDR
A de-novo genome sequence of the species type-strain Wallemiomycetes is obtained and its transcriptomic response to conditions close to the limits of its lower and upper salinity range is analysed, indicating a role of the cell wall of W. ichthyophaga in its response to salt.
Halophily reloaded: new insights into the extremophilic life-style of Wallemia with the description of Wallemia hederae sp. nov
TLDR
Tests of the activity of a wide range of extracellular enzymes in the presence of NaCl suggested that Wallemia is well-adapted to substrates with a reduced water activity, and in-vitro growth on media that contain the chaotropic salt MgCl2.
12 Tremellomycetes and Related Groups
TLDR
The state of knowledge of the morphology, ultrastructure, and ecology of Tremellomycetes are reviewed and their phylogenetic relationships are discussed, complemented by a comprehensive molecular phylogenetic analysis, including most of the species for which sequence data are available.
Xerochrysium gen. nov. and Bettsia, genera encompassing xerophilic species of Chrysosporium
TLDR
Using nrLSU genes, the majority of clades examined by Vidal et al. showed that currently accepted species in Chrysosporium phylogenetically belong in six clades in three orders, and surprisingly, the xerophilic species of Chrysospora occupy two clades, one in Leotiales, the other in Eurotiales.
Morphological Response of the Halophilic Fungal Genus Wallemia to High Salinity
ABSTRACT The basidiomycetous genus Wallemia is an active inhabitant of hypersaline environments, and it has recently been described as comprising three halophilic and xerophilic species: Wallemia
A Taxonomic Revision of the Wallemia sebi Species Complex
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses based species hypotheses from a companion study are confirmed and applied to guide phenotypic assessment of W. sebi sensu stricto and three new species described as W. mellicola, W. Canadensis, and W. tropicalis are confirmed.

Evolutionary relationships of membrers of the generaTaphrina, Protomyces, Schizosaccharomyces, and related taxa within the archiascomycetes: Integrated analysis of genotypic and phenotypic characters
TLDR
All the trees show that, within the archiascomycete lineage, 11 of the 14Taphrina species and the 2Protomyces species are monophyletic, and the evidence from molecular and phenotypic characters such as cell wall sugar composition, ubiquinone, cell wall ultrastructure, and mode of conidium ontogeny, strongly suggests that ‘T’.39 should be excluded from the archiacomyCete lineage.
Phylogenetic relationships of human-pathogenic Cladosporium (Xylohypha) species inferred from partial LS rRNA sequences.
TLDR
Human-pathogenic and saprophytic Cladosporium species were found to be phylogenetically distinct from each other and were considered to be anamorphs of Herpotrichiellaceae and Mycosphaerellaceae, respectively, and should be classified in different anamorph-genera.
Phylogenetic analysis of the ballistosporous anamorphic genera Udeniomyces and Bullera, and related basidiomycetous yeasts, based on 18S rDNA sequence.
TLDR
The molecular phylogeny deduced from the 18S rDNA sequence showed a possibility of heterogeneity among the species of Bullera at the generic level, and showed that the 44 species of basidiomycetes analysed were divided into three major lineages.
Evolution of Basidiomycetous Yeasts As Deduced From Small Ribosomal-subunit Rna Sequences
Complete small ribosomal subunit RNA sequences were used to infer the relationship between several basidiomycetous yeasts, and to resolve the evolutionary position of the basidiomycetes among the
Mixia osmundae: transfer from the Ascomycota to the Basidiomycota based on evidence from molecules and morphology
TLDR
Evidence from both molecular and morphological characters suggests that M. osmundae is not a member of the ascomycetes and is not related to either the Taphrinales or Protomycetales.
Phylogenetic placements of ustilaginomycetous anamorphs as deduced from nuclear LSU rDNA sequences
TLDR
Maximum parsimony and neighbour joining confirm the new suprageneric system of Ustilaginomycetes and indicate that the species of Pseudozyma represent anamorphs of UStilaginales parasitizing grasses.
Phylogeny among the basidiomycetous yeasts inferred from small subunit ribosomal DNA sequence.
TLDR
The molecular data support the principal chemotaxonomic and ultrastructural evidence, which indicates a very close affinity between C. capitatum and L. lari-marini, and divide the eight basidiomycetous yeasts into two groups which correlated well with both septal ultrastructure and cellular xylose.
Phylogenetic placement of the basidiomycetous yeastsKondoa malvinella andRhodosporidium dacryoidum, and the anamorphic yeastSympodiomycopsis paphiopedili by means of 18S rRNA gene sequence analysis
TLDR
The 18S ribosomal RNA gene sequences of the basidiomycetous yeasts Kondoa malvinella and Rhodosporidium dacryoidum, and an anamorphic yeastSympodiomycopsis paphiopedili were determined and revealed the presence of an intron-like region with a length of 404 nucleotides, which is presumably assigned to a group I intron.
A phylogenetic study of the genus Tilletiopsis, Tilletiaria anomala and related taxa based on the small subunit ribosomal DNA sequences
TLDR
This result clearly showed the phylogenetic divergence between the genera Tilletiopsis and Sporobolomyces; whereas the generas Tillet iopsis andSporoblomyces have common chemotaxonomic characteristics, i.e., the lack of xylose in the cells and the possession of Q-10 as the major ubiquinone.

The sequence of the small subunit ribosomal coding gene (SSU rDNA) was determined for the type strains of seven species of the genus Bullera and two species which are now regarded as synonyms of
