Falcocladiales was introduced to accommodate Falcocladiaceae by Maharachchikumbura et al. (2015). Falcocladiaceae comprises a single genus Falcocladium (Jones et al. 2014). Falcocladiales grouped sister to Coronophorales and Parasympodiellales with low statistical support (63% ML) in our phylogenetic analysis (Fig. 1). The divergence time for Falcocladiales has been estimated as 192 MYA. Currently there is one family with one genus in this order (this paper).
Figure 1 – Maximum likelihood (ML) majority rule combined LSU, SSU, tef1 and rpb2 consensus tree for the analyzed Sordariomycetes isolates. Families are indicated in yellow and green coloured blocks and orders are indicated in dark and light grey coloured blocks. RAxML bootstrap support values (MLB above 50 %) are given at the nodes. The scale bar represents the expected number of changes per site. The tree is rooted with Botryotinia fuckeliana (AFTOL ID-59), Dothidea sambuci (DAOM 231303), and Pyxidiophora arvernensis (AFTOL-ID 2197).
