Teichospora and the Teichosporaceae

  title={Teichospora and the Teichosporaceae},
  author={Walter M Jaklitsch and Ibai Olariaga and Hermann Voglmayr},
  journal={Mycological Progress},
A multigene analysis of a combined ITS, LSU, SSU, rpb2 and tef1 sequence data matrix was applied to infer the phylogenetic position of the genus Teichospora in the Pleosporales, based on isolates from freshly collected material of the generic type T. trabicola and several additional species. Phylogenetic analyses revealed that Misturatosphaeria and Floricola are synonyms of Teichospora. All species of these genera and several species recently described in the genus Curreya belong to Teichospora… 

A preliminary account of the Cucurbitariaceae

Two novel species of Neoaquastroma (Parabambusicolaceae, Pleosporales) with their phoma-like asexual morphs

Two novel species, N. bauhiniae and N. krabiense, are introduced in the monotypic genus Neoaquastroma, which was introduced for a microfungus isolated from a collection of dried stems of a dicotyledonous plant in Thailand.

Fenestelloid clades of the Cucurbitariaceae

The phylogenetic structure of the fenestelloid clades is complex and can only be resolved at the species level by protein-coding genes, such as rpb2, tef1 and tub2.

Taxonomy and Phylogenetic Appraisal of Dothideomycetous Fungi Associated with Magnolia, Lilium longiflorum and Hedychium coronarium

The taxonomy of some interesting saprobic microfungi associated with dead plant materials of Hedychium coronarium, Lilium longiflorum, and Magnolia species are highlighted and newly described taxa are compared with other similar species.

Three former taxa of Cucurbitaria and considerations on Petrakia in the Melanommataceae.

Based on phylogenetic analyses of an ITS-LSU-SSU-rpb2-tef1 sequence data matrix three taxa once classified in Cucurbitaria are referred to the Melanommataceae. Cucurbitaria rhododendri, also known as

Crassiperidium (Pleosporales, Dothideomycetes), a new ascomycetous genus parasitic on Fagus crenata in Japan

Phylogenetic analyses of Crassiperidium species based on the sequences of ITS, TEF1, RPB2, and a combined dataset of these three loci support the validity of these two species.

Hidden diversity in Thyridaria and a new circumscription of the Thyridariaceae



Resolving the Phoma enigma

Valsaria and the Valsariales

Multigene phylogeny based on SSU, LSU, ITS, rpb2 and tef1 sequences revealed a monophyletic group of ten species within the Dothideomycetes, belonging to three morphologically similar genera that could not be accommodated in any known family and are classified in the new family Valsariaceae and the new order Valsariales.

Molecular data reveal high host specificity in the phylogenetically isolated genus Massaria (Ascomycota, Massariaceae)

Biodiversity of Massaria was found to be centred on the genus Acer (seven species), where up to four species can occur on the same host species, and on Rosaceae (four species), and Geographic distribution of species is reconsidered, concluding that Europe may be the centre ofmassaria biodiversity.

Families of Dothideomycetes

Dothideomycetes comprise a highly diverse range of fungi characterized mainly by asci with two wall layers (bitunicate asci) and often with fissitunicate dehiscence, and it is hoped that by illustrating types they provide stimulation and interest so that more work is carried out in this remarkable group of fungi.

Prosthecium species with Stegonsporium anamorphs on Acer.

The families of bitunicate ascomycetes

In a transitional classification of the Ascomycetes, 109 monophyletic entities (clades) are recognized and the name Lecanidiaceae is proposed to replace Patellariaceae Corda, and Cyanoder–mella to replace Cyanoderma Hohn.

Molecular phylogenetics of Pleosporales: Melanommataceae and Lophiostomataceae re-circumscribed (Pleosporomycetidae, Dothideomycetes, Ascomycota)

Two nuclear DNA gene markers, nuclear ribosomal large subunit DNA and translation elongation factor 1-alpha are employed in order to examine the molecular phylogenetics of Pleosporales with strong emphasis on the families Melanommataceae and Lophiostomataceae.

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.

Resolution of morphology-based taxonomic delusions: Acrocordiella, Basiseptospora, Blogiascospora, Clypeosphaeria, Hymenopleella, Lepteutypa, Pseudapiospora, Requienella, Seiridium and Strickeria

Fresh material, type studies and molecular phylogeny were used to clarify phylogenetic relationships of the nine genera Acrocordiella, Blogiascospora, Clypeosphaeria, Hymenopleella, Lepteutypa, Pseudapiospora, Requienella, Seiridium and Strickeria, and all were found to belong to the Xylariales.

Blue pigment in Hypocrea caerulescens sp. nov. and two additional new species in sect. Trichoderma

Analyses involving tef1 did not unequivocally resolve the sister clade relationship of Hypocrea caerulescens relative to the Koningii and Viride clades, while analyses based on rpb2 clearly suggest a close relationship with the former, although the phenotype of H. caerULescens is similar to H. viridescens.
