Minutisphaerales Raja, Oberlies, Shearer & A.N. Mill.
MycoBank number: MB 811951; Index Fungorum number: IF 811951; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08064.
Minutisphaerales was established by Raja et al. (2015) to accommodate Minutisphaeraceae, members of which are found on submerged wood in freshwater streams. Jayasiri et al. (2018) included Acrogenosporaceae in this order based on the morphological similarities and phylogenetic analyses. The same result is shown in Fig. 46. The divergence time for Minutisphaerales is estimated as 224 MYA (stem age, Hongsanan et al. 2020).
Accepted families: Acrogenosporaceae, Minutisphaeraceae.
Fig. 46 Phylogram generated from maximum likelihood analysis (RAxML) of Minuti- sphaerales based on ITS, LSU, SSU and tef1 sequence data. Maximum likelihood bootstrap values equal or above 70%, Bayesian posterior probabilities equal or above 0.90 (MLBS/ PP) are given at the nodes. An original isolate number is noted after the species name. The tree is rooted to Capnodium coartatum (MFLUCC 10-0069) and Leptoxyphium kurandae (CBS 129530). The ex-type strains are indicated in bold. Hyphen (-) represents support values below 70% MLBS and 0.90 PP
