Hypocreomycetidae O.E. Erikss. & Winka, Myconet 1(1): 6 (1997), Index Fungorum Number: IF501501
Maharachchikumbura et al. (2016b) accepted Conioscyphales, Coronophorales, Falcocladiales, Glomerellales, Hypocreales, Melanosporales, Microascales, Pleurotheciales and Savoryellales in Hypocreomycetidae. Yang et al. (2016b) introduced Fuscosporellales to the subclass based on LSU, SSU and rpb2 sequence data. Hongsanan et al. (2017) placed Fuscosporellales and Pleurotheciales in the newly introduced subclass Savoryellomycetidae. The families Etheirophoraceae, Juncigenaceae and Torpedosporaceae have previously been treated in Torpedosporales by Jones et al. (2015), but Torpedosporales was maintained in Hypocreomycetidae, incertae sedis by Maharachchikumbura et al. (2015). Maharachchikumbura et al. (2016b) accepted Torpedosporales in Hypocreomycetidae and this was confirmed by Hongsanan et al. (2017) based on the divergent time estimates. Later, Parasympodiellales was added to the subclass by Hernández-Restrepo et al. (2017). Our phylogenetic analysis of a combined LSU, SSU, tef1, rpb2 sequence data (Figs. 1, 24) also supports the placement of Torpedosporales in Hypocreomycetidae. Currently, there are seven orders (Coronophorales, Falcocladiales, Glomerellales, Hypocreales, Microascales, Parasympodiellales and Torpedosporales) and 37 families in this subclass (Hyde et al. 2017a, this paper). The divergence time for Hypocreomycetidae has been estimated as 256.5 MYA.
