Taxonomic revision of Ustilago, Sporisorium and Macalpinomyces

McTaggart, A. R. and Shivas, R. G. ORCID: and Geering, A. D. W. and Vanky, K. and Scharaschkin, T. (2012) Taxonomic revision of Ustilago, Sporisorium and Macalpinomyces. Persoonia: Molecular Phylogeny and Evolution of Fungi, 29. pp. 116-132. ISSN 0031-5850


Morphological characters within the Ustilago-Sporisorium-Macalpinomyces complex are defined explicitly. The genera Sporisorium and Anthracocystis are emended to reflect morphological synapomorphies. Three new genera, Langdonia, Stollia and Triodiomyces are described based on soral synapomorphies and host classification. The new classification of the Ustilago-Sporisorium-Macalpinomyces complex incorporates 142 new taxonomic combinations.
