HURRICANE WARNING! How new nomenclatural rules affect fungal entomopathogens
Phylogenetic reclassification raises new respect--and a new phylum!--for Entomophthorales
Batko, A. 1975. Filogeneza a struktury taksonomiczne Entomophthoraceae. In Ewolucja biologiczna, C. Nowinski (ed.), pp. 209-304. Polska Akad. Nauk, Inst. Filoz. Socjol. Wroclaw. [ENGLISH TRANSLATION]
An extended commentary and justification on Batko's classification of the Entomophthorales. The challenging perspectives about the biology of these fungi presented here deserve consideration despite the flaws in this classification.
A handout for a 1998 workshop (updated in 2005, but more recent taxonomies for many entomopathogenic fungi are not included here). This document includes the key to fungal genera from the 1977 Manual of Techniques in Insect Pathology and keys to major species presenting major characters in the order they should be considered.
