The genus Durotheca is introduced with D. depressa sp. nov., as type. Hypoxylon comedens is transferred to Durotheca, based on its morphology with further evidence from molecular phylogenetic studies; a combined β-tubulin and α-actin gene dataset. Theissenia cinerea is synonymized with D. comedens, and the type of Theissenia, T. pyrenocrata, is shown to occupy a basal, rather distant position in a monotypic clade in relation to sequenced taxa of Durotheca. This clade has an unresolved position…

Contributions to species of Xylariales in China-1. Durotheca species
TLDR
Both morphological and molecular evidence confirmed that two Durotheca-like taxa collected from Guizhou Province, China are new species, Duro theca crateriformis and D Kurotheca guizhouensis, while DuroTheca eurima (≡ Theissenia Eurima) is a new record for China.
Resurrection and emendation of the Hypoxylaceae, recognised from a multigene phylogeny of the Xylariales
TLDR
A comprehensive phylogenetic analysis revealed a clear-cut segregation of the Xylariaceae into several major clades, which was well in accordance with previously established morphological and chemotaxonomic concepts.
The genus Biscogniauxia (Xylariaceae) in Guadeloupe and Martinique (French West Indies)
This survey deals with the Biscogniauxia taxa collected in the French West Indies in the course of an ongoing inventorial work on the mycobiota of these islands initiated in 2003. Based on the
New Hypoxylon species from Martinique and new evidence on the molecular phylogeny of Hypoxylon based on ITS rDNA and β-tubulin data
TLDR
It is concluded that the right gene (or multi-gene genealogies) to reflect the phylogeny and evolution of Hypoxylon still remains to be found, and it is recommended that the application of polyphasic taxonomic concepts should be continued in taxonomic studies ofHypoxylon.
Taxonomic and phylogenetic re-evaluation of Microdochium, Monographella and Idriella
TLDR
Based on morphology andDNA sequence data the taxonomic relationships of Microdochium, Monographella and Idriella were reassessed, and several well-known species are redefined based on their morphology and DNA sequence data.
Two new species of Microdochium from Indocalamus longiauritus in south-western China
TLDR
Two new Microdochium species isolated from the leaf spot of Indocalamus longiauritus in Yunnan Province, China are described and illustrated, and DNA sequence data indicate that six strains represent three independent groups from related and similar species in Micro dochium.
Notes for genera: Ascomycota
TLDR
This work is intended to provide the foundation for updating the ascomycete component of the “Without prejudice list of generic names of Fungi” published in 2013, which will be developed into a list of protected generic names.
Multigene Phylogeny Reveals Haploanthostomella elaeidis gen. et sp. nov. and Familial Replacement of Endocalyx (Xylariales, Sordariomycetes, Ascomycota)
TLDR
A new genus Haploanthostomella within Xylariales, and a new species Endocalyx metroxyli are introduced, and the genus EndocalyX is transferred to the family Cainiaceae based on its brown conidia and molecular phylogenetic evidence.
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.

The phylogenetic position of Rhopalostroma as inferred from a polythetic approach
TLDR
The results showed that R. angolense is closely related to the daldinoid Xylariaceae, and in particular to the predominantly neotropical genera Phylacia and Thamnomyces.

Molecular phylogenetic studies within the Xylariaceae based on ribosomal DNA sequences
TLDR
The phylogenetic reconstructions showed a reasonable degree of correlation between the sequence data and the proposed morphological classification schemes only for some genera within the family, suggesting the need for further revision of the generic concepts and diagnostic characters within the Xylariaceae.
Chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic studies of Thamnomyces (Xylariaceae)
TLDR
It is concluded that Thamnomyces, Daldinia, and Phylacia are derived from the same evolutionary lineage, despite these genera differing drastically in their stromatal morphology and anatomy.
Two divergent intragenomic rDNA ITS2 types within a monophyletic lineage of the fungus Fusarium are nonorthologous.
TLDR
The results suggest that the ancestral ITS2 types may have arisen following an ancient interspecific hybridization or gene duplication which occurred prior to the evolutionary radiation of the Gibberella fujikuroi complex and related species of Fusarium.
Molecular chemotaxonomy of Daldinia and other Xylariaceae
TLDR
A combination of both PCR based techniques and ARDRA provided a fair resolution of genetic subtypes, reflecting the intrageneric variance in Daldinia as established from morphological data and secondary metabolite profiles.
Theissenia rogersii sp. nov. and phylogenetic position of Theissenia.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses based on DNA sequences of beta-tubulin and alpha-actin genes placed Theissenia in the subfamily Hypoxyloideae among the genera that are characterized by having bipartite stromata (i.e. with theStromata differentiated into an outer dehiscing layer and an inner perithecium-bearing layer).
