New species and emendations of Orphella: taxonomic and phylogenetic reassessment of the genus to establish the Orphellales, for stonefly gut fungi with a twist

A molecular phylogeny based on nuc rDNA 18S and 28S is presented, which supports Orphella as a lineage distinct from Harpellales, and a new order, Orphellales, is established for it.

Genome-Wide Survey of Gut Fungi (Harpellales) Reveals the First Horizontally Transferred Ubiquitin Gene from a Mosquito Host

This is the first record of a horizontally transferred ubiquitin gene from disease-bearing insects to the gut-dwelling fungal endobiont and should invite further exploration in an evolutionary context.

Title Comparative Genomics Reveals the Core Gene Toolbox for the Fungus-Insect Symbiosis Permalink

A universal core gene toolbox that is unique and thus potentially important for the insect-fungus symbiosis is found by producing and annotating whole-genome sequences of nine gut commensal fungi from disease-bearing insects and conducting the first comparative analyses to infer the genomic diversity within the members of the Harpellales.

Bringing Laboulbeniales into the 21st century: enhanced techniques for extraction and PCR amplification of DNA from minute ectoparasitic fungi

Details of isolation techniques and the application of commercially available kits that enable efficient and reliable genetic analyses ofLaboulbeniales molecular systematics could be substantially enhanced through improved methods by allowing more complete sampling of both taxa and gene regions.

Comparative Genomics Reveals the Core Gene Toolbox for the Fungus-Insect Symbiosis

Comparisons with insect-pathogenic fungi and free-living fungi helped to identify a gene toolbox that is essential to the fungus-insect symbiosis and uncovered different host invasion strategies employed by insect pathogens and commensals, as well as a model system to study ancient fungal genome duplication within the gut of insects.

Details of isolation techniques and the application of commercially available kits that enable effective and reliable genetic analyses of Laboulbeniales molecular systematics are provided.

Fungal Diversity Revisited: 2.2 to 3.8 Million Species.

New evidence is examined from various sources to derive an updated estimate of global fungal diversity, concluding that the commonly cited estimate of 1.5 million species is conservative and that the actual range is properly estimated at 2.2 to 3.8 million.

Trichomycetes from freshwater and salt marsh mosquito larvae with a new species in the monotypic genus Legerioides

A new species, Legerioides culicicola, is described from mosquito larvae from freshwater sources in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, Canada, and Smittium gronthidium Strongman & M.M. White is reported for the first time in this host.

Overview of 75 years of Smittium research, establishing a new genus for Smittium culisetae, and prospects for future revisions of the ‘Smittium’ clade1

The first two-gene phylogenetic analysis, using combined 18S and 28S rRNA gene sequence data to show a cluster of Zancudomyces culisetae separate from Smittium, serves a molecular systematic update toward revisionary syntheses of this and other Harpellales taxa.

Eccrinales (Trichomycetes) are not fungi, but a clade of protists at the early divergence of animals and fungi.

USING RPB 1 SEQUENCES TO IMPROVE PHYLOGENETIC INFERENCE AMONG MUSHROOMS ( I NOCYBE , AGARICALES )

This multigene study indicates that Inocy be is a monophyletic group composed of at least four distinct lineages—subgenus Mallocybe, section Cervicolores, section Rimosae, and subgenus Inocybe sensu Kühner, Kuyper, non Singer.

Phylogeny of the Zygomycota based on nuclear ribosomal sequence data.

A molecular-based phylogeny including recognized representatives of the Zygomycetes and TrichomycETes with a combined dataset for nuclear rRNA 18S (SSU), 5.8S and 28S (LSU) genes is presented.

Loss of the flagellum happened only once in the fungal lineage: phylogenetic structure of Kingdom Fungi inferred from RNA polymerase II subunit genes

The results suggest that loss of the flagellum happened only once during early stages of fungal evolution; consequently, the majority of fungi, unlike plants and animals, are nonflagellated.

Phylogenetic relationships among ascomycetes: evidence from an RNA polymerse II subunit.

Findings show that a slowly evolving protein-coding gene such as RPB2 is useful for diagnosing phylogenetic relationships among fungi, and suggests that fruiting body formation and forcible discharge of ascospores were characters gained early in the evolution of the Ascomycota.
