Odontotremataceae is polyphyletic and constitutes two distantly related clades, the true Odontotremataceae and a segregate group within Stictidaceae including “Odontotrema” cassiopes, “O.” diffindens, lichenicolous “Odontotrema” species and “Bryodiscus” arctoalpinus. Sphaeropezia here is accepted as the name for this latter group. An updated phylogeny of the Stictidaceae based on mtSSU, nuLSU and the protein coding gene RPB2 is presented together with a taxonomic revision of Swedish taxa of… 

Phylogenetic placement within Lecanoromycetes of lichenicolous fungi associated with Cladonia and some other genera

The phylogenetic analyses revealed that the studied lichenicolous fungi are widespread across the phylogeny of Lecanoromycetes.

Thelopsis challenges the generic circumscription in the Gyalectaceae and brings new insights to the taxonomy of Ramonia

Phylogenetic analyses using nuLSU, RPB2 and mtSSU sequences reveal that members of Thelopsis form a monophyletic group within the genus Gyalecta as currently accepted, and the taxonomic significance of morphological characters inGyalectaceae is discussed.

The Evolution of Life Modes in Stictidaceae, with Three Novel Taxa

Maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference analyses of mitochondrial small subunit spacers, large subunit nuclear rDNA, and internal transcribed spacers sequence data, together with phenotypic data documented by detailed morphological and anatomical analyses, support the taxonomic affinity of the new taxa in Stictidaceae.

Aabaarnia and Normanogalla, two new lichenicolous genera of Ostropales, Ascomycota

The new genus and species Aabaarnia siphulicola is described for a lichenicolous, gall-inducing ascomycete growing on Siphula decumbens in Australia (Tasmania) and New Zealand (Auckland Islands). The

Cryptodiscus muriformis and Schizoxylon gilenstamii, two new species of Stictidaceae (Ascomycota)

Two new species of Stictidaceae and Schizoxylon gilenstamii are described as new to science from collections made in Europe and North America, based on phylogenetic analyses of three loci.

Fungal Systematics and Evolution

A new family, Wynneaceae, is erected for Geodina and Wynnea, which shares morphological traits of cyanophobic spore markings, dark angular outer excipular cells that give rise to hairs and the origin of several apothecia from a common basal stalk in these genera.

The phylogeny of Porinaceae (Ostropomycetidae) suggests a neotenic origin of perithecia in Lecanoromycetes.

The phylogenetic position of this family in the system of ascomycetes has been uncertain and is investigated using mtSSU rDNA sequences, and the subclass Ostropomycetidae is here suggested to include the families Gomphillaceae, Gyalectaceae, Graphidaceae, Porinaceae, and Stictidaceae.

Expansion of the Stictidaceae by the addition of the saxicolous lichen-forming genus Ingvariella

It is reported that Ingvariella is a member of the Stictidaceae, sister to the mainly saprotrophic genus Cryptodiscus, and the inclusion of the first saxicolous lichen-forming fungus within this family expands the broad ecological diversity of this family.

Generic delimitations in the family Stictidaceae (Ostropales, Ascomycota): the Stictis–Conotrema problem

It is concluded that lichenization in the Stictidaceae does not characterize natural groups, and that Conotrema should be considered a synonym to Stictis, as predicted by anatomical characteristics.

The lichenicolous species of Odontotrema (Syn. Lethariicola) (Ascomycota, Ostropales)

The genus Lethariicola is shown to be a synonym of Odontotrema, and the name is lectotypified on the species growing on Parmeliopsis, and a key is given to all lichenicolous species of OdentotreMA and Paralethariicol.

Major clades and phylogenetic relationships between lichenized and non-lichenized lineages in Ostropales (Ascomycota: Lecanoromycetes)

A phylogeny of Ostropales species suggests that there is more plasticity in the evolution of life-styles in these fungi than was previously assumed and selected character states mapped onto a phylogenetic tree.

Are there Lichenized Ostropales?

The 18S rRNA gene from some key taxa is sequenced to answer the questions as to whether one or two orders should be recognized and whether Conotrema should be kept in Ostropales if Graphidales is recognized.

Phylogenetic relationships of Lecanoromycetes (Ascomycota) as revealed by analyses of mtSSU and nLSU rDNA sequence data.

The phylogeny of Lecanoromycetes (Ascomycota, Fungi) is investigated utilizing parsimony and Bayesian Markov Chain Monte Carlo analyses, and it is suggested that Acarosporaceae, Candelariaceae, Phlyctis and Pycnora are not members of the monophyletic LECanorales, and that Timdalia and Pleopsidium are members of a monophyletsporaceae.

A five-gene phylogeny of Pezizomycotina.

Pezizomycotina is the largest subphylum of Ascomycota and includes the vast majority of filamentous, ascoma-producing species, and the seven remaining classes formed a monophyletic group that corresponds to Leotiomyceta.
