The Classification of the Hyphomycetes

  title={The Classification of the Hyphomycetes},
  author={C. V. Subramanian},
The classification of the Hyphomycetes is discussed with special reference to spore types conidiophore behaviour and initiation and development of spores. Eight basic morphological spore types are recognized : the blastospore, the gangliospore, the phialospore, the porospore, the arthrospore, the meristem-arthrospore, the spiculospore and the chlamydospore. No taxonomic significance is attached to the chlamydospore. It is pointed out that the forms now placed in the Mucedinaceae the Dematiaceae… Expand
Conidiospore types in Cochliobolus sativus
In four mono-ascospore isolates of Cochliobolus sativus, non-furcate porospores were typical of the species and the consistent production of gangliospore by all isolates and of blastospores by two of them was noteworthy. Expand
Mycosphaerellaceae – Chaos or clarity?
A phylogenetic framework for future taxonomic work within the Mycosphaerellaceae is provided and many well-known genera are shown to be paraphyletic, with several synapomorphic characters that have evolved more than once within the family. Expand
Four new coprophilous hyphomycetes
Four new and interesting coprophilous Hyphomycetes are described from India and the forms are compared with related genera. Expand
Studies on some didymosporous genera of nematode-trapping hyphomycetes
The taxonomic position of Trichothecium is discussed and a more precise generic delimitation is proposed and it is suggested that T. inaequale may be best included in Genicularia. Expand
Panchanania andPhragmospathula, two new genera of the Hyphomycetes
Two new Hyphomycetes collected from Jaipur, Rajasthan, India are described and both fungi are placed in the Torulaceae Corda emend. Expand
The Theoretical Bases for Classification of the Fungi Imperfecti
  • E. G. Simmons
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Quarterly Review of Biology

A discussion of the requirements of a new, information-rich classification is used to introduce a review of recent systematic revisions based on methods of asexual spore production observed among these fungi. Expand
The fine structure of conidial development in the genus Torula. I. T. herbarum (Pers.) Link ex S. F. Gray and T. herbarum f. quaternella Sacc.
The relative distinctions between holoblastic and enteroblastic development are discussed and it is concluded that the conidia of Torula herbarum and T. quaternella should be referred to as blastoconidia. Expand
Impact of DNA sequence-data on the taxonomy of anamorphic fungi
The historical establishment and limitations of the dual system of classification is reviewed, the possible utilities of DNA sequence-data in developing a system of Classification based on evolutionary relationships are narrated, and emerging phylogenetic and nomenclatural scenarios in the Botryosphaeriales, Chaetospha aeriales, Fusarium graminearum, pestalotiopsis-like anamorphs, and the Mycosphaerella complex are illustrated.

Recherches sur la rhizosphère de Loudetia simplex C. E. Hubbard, graminée typique de la savane en Côte d'Ivoire: Rapport final
Investigations on the rhizosphere microflora of Loudetia simplex, spontaneous grass in Lamto savannah of Ivory Coast, found that the occurrence of Rhinocladiella indica, Chaetomium fusisporale and Gongronella butleri is taxonomically and ecologically remarkable. Expand
Hyphomycetes-Beltrania and Allied Species from Taiwan
Six hyphomycetous fungi were newly recorded from several localities of Taiwan using single or mass spore isolation technique, and their distinguished characters for identification and comparison with conspecies from varied geographic regions were discussed. Expand
