Interpretive Summary: This paper provides a compilation and interpretation of recently described ascomycete fungi. Also included is an analysis of 18S ribosomal RNA genes with a sequence correlation between the different groups. This work will be of interest to biologists and biotechnologists who wish to use gene sequence for the detection of specific groups of fungi.
Technical Abstract: The present paper presents 44 notes on the taxonomy and nomenclature of ascomycetes (Ascomycota) at the generic and higher levels. The new order Orbiliales and new class Orbiliomycetes are described. A signature sequence in SSU rDNA from members of Ascomycota is discussed.
