Diaporthe species have a worldwide distribution and are associated with economically important hosts as pathogens, endophytes, and saprobes. Taxonomic identification of Diaporthe species is challenging due to overlapping morphological traits and host associations. Herein, we have assembled a comprehensive dataset and inferred a phylogenetic tree of...

Over the years, there have been continuous updates in the taxonomy of coelomycetes. In particular, traditional classification has been revised and updated based on extensive collections supplemented with morphological examinations and phylogenetic analyses. Most of the data available are scattered in the literature. In an attempt to ease the work o...

Mangroves grow adjacent to estuarine regions of the tropics and subtropics. Fungi cause diseases in mangroves; however, it is not clear if the diseases are unique to mangrove species or ubiquitous. In this study, we identified a species of Alternaria, a genus comprising with saprobic and pathogenic species of a large number of plants. The genus is...

Full-text available
During an ongoing research survey of saprobic fungi in Thailand, four coelomycetous strains were isolated from decaying leaves in Chiang Mai and Phitsanulok Provinces. Morphological characteristics demonstrated that these taxa are typical of Cytospora in forming multi-loculate, entostromatic conidiomata, branched or unbranched conidiophores, with e...

Phyllosticta species have worldwide distribution and are pathogens, endophytes, and saprobes. Taxa have also been isolated from leaf spots and black spots of fruits. Taxonomic identification of Phyllosticta species is challenging due to overlapping morphological traits and host associations. Herein, we have assembled a comprehensive dataset and rec...
Article
The recent realistic estimate of fungal numbers which used various algorithms was between 2.2 and 3.8 million. There are nearly 100,000 accepted species of Fungi and fungus-like taxa, which is between 2.6 and 4.5% of the estimated species. Several forums such as Botanica Marina series, Fungal Diversity notes, Fungal Biodiversity Profiles, Fungal Sy...
Article
A new fungus, Muyocopron thailandica, collected from a dead plant sample in northern Thailand, is described and compared with other described species of Muyocopron. Multi-gene phylogenetic analyses based on LSU and ITS sequence data indicated that M. thailandica forms a distinct lineage within the genus Muyocopron, and is closely related to M. cast...

Article
Cytospora species are important pathogens, which have a worldwide distribution, broad host range and are commonly associated with tree dieback and canker disease. Lack of ex-type cultures or inability to link multi-gene DNA sequence data in GenBank to phylogenetic analyses makes it difficult to classify Cytospora taxa to species level. In this stud...

Maintaining and updating databases and checklists of genera of fungi is an essential task for most fungal research. Advances in molecular techniques in the last 20 years have greatly influenced the fungal taxonomy and classification. Consequently, it is important to have access to all existing data and for these data to be continuously updated with...
Article
Correct taxonomic identification of phytopathogens is essential as there is a need to gather precise stored information on different genera. It is important to scientifically document and records the diversity of fungal pathogens in order to collate information, as well as for utilizing the data efficiently. Fungal databases need to play an essenti...

Fungi have been often neglected, despite the fact that they provided penicillin, lovastatin and many other important medicines. They are an understudied, but essential, fascinating and biotechnologically useful group of organisms. The study of fungi in northern Thailand has been carried out by us since 2005. These studies have been diverse, ranging...
