Molecular phylogenetic analysis reveals six new species of Diaporthe from Australia

Tan, Y. P. and Edwards, J. and Grice, K. R E and Shivas, R. G. (2013) Molecular phylogenetic analysis reveals six new species of Diaporthe from Australia. Fungal Diversity, 61 (1). pp. 251-260. ISSN 1560-2745

Abstract

Six new species of Diaporthe, D. beilharziae on Indigofera australis, D. fraxini-angustifoliae on Fraxinus angustifolia subsp. oxycarpa, D. litchicola on Litchi chinensis, D. nothofagi on Nothofagus cunninghamii, D. pascoei on Persea americana and D. salicicola on Salix purpurea from Australia are described and illustrated based on morphological characteristics and molecular analyses. Three of the new species no longer produced sporulating structures in culture and two of these were morphologically described from voucher specimens. Phylogenetic relationships of the new species with other Diaporthe species are revealed by DNA sequence analyses based on the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region, and partial regions of the β-tubulin (BT) and translation elongation factor 1-alpha (TEF).
