Recent higher order placements of marine fungi

Three recent papers on the higher order ranking of fungi are of interest to marine mycology, although the recommendations are not that clear!

Hyde KD, S. N. Maharachchikumbura, Sinang Hongsanan, Samarakoon MC, Lucking R, Pem D., Harishchandra D, Jeewon R, Zhao RL, Xu JC, Kiu JK, Al-Sadi AM, Bahkali AH, Elgorban AM (2017) The ranking of fungi: a tribute to David L Hawksworth on this 70th birthday. Fungal Diversity 84(3): 1-24.

Sinang Hongsanan, Sajeewa S. N. Maharachchikumbura, Kevin D. Hyde et al. (2017) An updated phylogeny of Sordariomycetes based on phylogenetic and molecular clock evidence. Fungal Diversity 84 (3): 25-41.  

Jian-Kui Liu, Kevin D. Hyde, Rajesh Jeewon, Alan J. L. Phillips et al. (2017) Ranking higher taxa using divergence times: a case study in Dothideomycetes. Fungal Diversity 84 (3): 75-99.

 

Accepted taxa:

Sordariomycetes

Tirisporellaceae, Tirisporallales, divergence time 112 MYA and share a common ancestor with Sydowiellaceae and Pseudevalsariaceae, but in the phylogenetic tree it is more closely related to Pseudevalsariaceae. The placement of Tirisporellales is not well supported in both MCC and phylogenetic trees and falls within the Diaporthales. However, because it is a marine family and has a hyphomycetous asexual morph. (which is not found in the Diaporthales) it is not synonymised with Diaporthales, until more data are available.

Halosphaeriaceae, Microascales. No changes suggested.

Torpedosporales no changes suggested in Hongsana et al.

Oxydothidaceae, Xylariales, Xylariomycetidae new family for Oxydothis species, many of which are marine and on palm leaves.

Savoryellaceae, Savoryellales New sub class: Savoryeliomycetidae is introduced with three orders: Conioscyphales, Pleurtheciales and Savoryllales.

Lulworthiaceae, Lulworthiales. No changes suggested.

 

Dothideomycetes

All the following families/orders seem to be supported

Morophaeriaceae

Halojulellaceae (weak support)

Halotthiaceae

Testudinaceae

Lophiostomataceae

Salsuginaceae (weak support)

Aigialaceae

Caryosporaceae (to include Acrocordiopsis)

Trematosphaeriaceae

Acrocylindricaceae

Pseudorobillardaceae

Jahnulales

Dyfromycetales

Wiesneriomycetaceae, Wieseriomycetales

In Hyde et al. (2017), the new order Etheirophorales was proposed for the families Etheirophoraceae and Juncigenaceae, but that should be made if only if the evolution tree is followed. The data is rationalised in the Hongsanan et al. (2017) paper to included phylogenetic and morphological evidence and thus only the changes in Hongsanan et al. should be followed, not the ones in Hyde et al.!
