ABSTRACT
, a species described previously on the basis of cultured material, was found forming distinctive sporodochia on the bark of balsam poplar. Phylogenetic analyses of this fungus and some allied species indicated that ( i) it forms a monophyletic group with (type species of ) and with , and and ( ii) and are conspecific. These and species also shared major morphological characteristics with Knufia in culture and were morphologically and phylogenetically distant from the type species of their respective genera. The following new combinations are proposed: (Sterflinger) Tsuneda, Hambleton & Currah; (D.M. Li, de Hoog, Saunte & X.R. Chen) Tsuneda, Hambleton & Currah; and (Bogom. & Minter) Tsuneda, Hambleton & Currah. and (type species of Phaeococcomyces) were morphologically similar but phylogenetically distant from each other and from Knufia.
