The family Pleosporaceae includes numerous saprobic, opportunistic human, and plant pathogenic taxa. The classification of genera and species Pleosporaceae has been a major challenge due to the lack of a clear understanding of the importance of the morphological characters used to distinguish taxa as well as the lack of reference strains. Recent treatments concluded that Pleospora and some other genera in Pleosporaceae are likely polyphyletic. In order to establish the evolutionary… 
Revision and phylogeny of Leptosphaeriaceae
TLDR
Multi-locus phylogenies together with morphology robustly support the monophyletic nature of Leptosphaeriaceae among the other families in Pleosporales, and the inclusion of the genera Alternariaster, Heterospora, LePTosphaeria, Paraleptoshaeria, Sphaerellopsis, Subplenodomus, Plenidomus and three novel genera are established.
Taxonomic novelties of saprobic Pleosporales from selected dicotyledons and grasses
TLDR
14 new species are described here include 14 new species, a new geographical record and three new host records of known species from dicotyledons and grasses in China, Italy, Russia and Thailand.
Species diversity of Pleosporalean taxa associated with Camellia sinensis (L.) Kuntze in Taiwan
TLDR
Thirty pleosporalean strains isolated from the leaves of Camellia sinensis plants with symptoms of leaf spot disease revealed the affiliation of these strains with the various families in Pleosporales and revealed the presence of one new genus (Neoshiraia) and eight new species.
The families Distoseptisporaceae fam. nov., Kirschsteiniotheliaceae, Sporormiaceae and Torulaceae, with new species from freshwater in Yunnan Province, China
TLDR
The polyphyletic nature of Dendryphion, Sporidesmium and Torula-like species are partially resolved, but further sampling with fresh collections and molecular data of species are needed to obtain a natural classification.
Microfungi associated with Clematis (Ranunculaceae) with an integrated approach to delimiting species boundaries
TLDR
The study revealed two new families, 12 new genera, 50 new species, 26 new host records with one dimorphic character report, and ten species are transferred to other genera on Clematis.
Phylogenetic revision of Camarosporium (Pleosporineae, Dothideomycetes) and allied genera
Taxonomy and phylogeny of dematiaceous coelomycetes
TLDR
This paper illustrates, describes, and provides taxonomic notes for 235 dematiaceous coelomycetous genera, including five new genera viz.
Additions to Sporormiaceae: Introducing Two Novel Genera, Sparticola and Forliomyces, from Spartium
TLDR
This paper introduces Sparticola and Forliomyces gen. nov. with three new species in the family Sporormiaceae based on multi-locus phylogeny together with morphology, and Illustrated accounts are provided for the new taxa, which are compared with morphologically related taxa.
Biodiversity and taxonomy of the pleomorphic genus Alternaria
The genus Alternaria, alternarioid hyphomycetes, comprise a biologically, ecologically, and morphologically rich group of fungi that has suffered from taxonomic flux for many years. The taxonomy of
Are pathogenic isolates of Stemphylium host specific and cosmopolitan
TLDR
This paper briefly discusses the occurrence of pathogenic isolates of Stemphylium on different host species, pathogenicity, disease severity, distribution and molecular phylogenetic affinities of pathogens isolates from StemPHylium.

Alternaria redefined
TLDR
The aim of this study was to delineate phylogenetic lineages within Alternaria and allied genera based on nucleotide sequence data of parts of the 18S nrDNA, 28S nRDNA, ITS, GAPDH, RPB2 and TEF1-alpha gene regions, and reveal a Pleospora/Stemphylium clade sister to Embellisia annulata, and a well-supported Alternaria clade.
The family Pleosporaceae: intergeneric relationships and phylogenetic perspectives based on sequence analyses of partial 28S rDNA.
TLDR
Phylogenies indicate that Wettsteinina should be excluded from the Pleosporaceae, which is probably polyphyletic and anamorphic characters appear to be significant (especially in Cochliobolus), while ascospore morphologies are poor indicators of phylogenetic relationships among these loculoascomycetes.
Phylogenetic studies of the Leptosphaeriaceae, Pleosporaceae and some other Loculoascomycetes based on nuclear ribosomal DNA sequences
TLDR
The reconstructed phylogenetic trees supported the separation of two monophyletic groups, containing the type genera of the Leptosphaeriaceae and the Pleosporaceae, respectively, and the taxonomic disposition of Lewia, Pyrenophora, and Comoclathris based on the phylogenetic analyses are discussed.
Multi-locus phylogeny of Pleosporales: a taxonomic, ecological and evolutionary re-evaluation
TLDR
Both ecological and morphological characters show varying degrees of phylogenetic significance in Pleosporalean taxa.
Redisposition of phoma-like anamorphs in Pleosporales
TLDR
The anamorphic genus Phoma was subdivided into nine sections based on morphological characters, and included teleomorphs in Didymella, Leptosphaeria, Pleospora and Mycosphaerella, but recent molecular, phylogenetic studies led to the conclusion that Phoma should be restricted to Didymellaceae.
Decorospora, a new genus for the marine ascomycete Pleospora gaudefroyi
TLDR
P. gaudefroyi was excluded from Pleospora, and transferred to the new genus Decorospora placed in the Pleosporaceae, using partial SSU and ITS ribosomal DNA sequences.
Molecular systematics of the marine Dothideomycetes
TLDR
Specific attention is given to the adaptation of the Dothideomycetes to the marine milieu, new lineages of marine fungi and their host specificity.
Applanodictyosporous Pleosporales: Clathrospora, Comoclathris, GraphyIlium, Macrospora, and Platysporoides
Six genera of the order Pleosporales are revised taxonomically. Although five genera have unusual applanate ascospores, they are members of three different families. Clathrospora (10 species, 2 new),
Halojulellaceae a new family of the order Pleosporales
TLDR
Morphological characters and molecular data show that H. avicenniae belongs in the Pleosporales, outside any of the known families, and thus a new family is introduced to accommodate it and Halojulellaceae fam.
Towards a natural classification of Dothideomycetes 7: The genera Allosoma , Austropleospora , Dangeardiella , Griggsia and Karschia (Dothideomycetes incertae sedis )
TLDR
In this paper the type specimens of Allosoma, Austropleospora, Dangeardiella, Griggsia and Karschia were re-examined and are illustrated and an overview of the history and descriptions and illustrations of these genera are provided.
