Abstract:Two new species of Amniculicola, A. immersa sp. nov. and A. parva sp. nov. from submerged wood in a freshwater environment in Denmark and France are respectively described and illustrated. In addition, partial 28S rDNA sequence data is analysed to investigate their phylogenetic relationships with other pleosporalean taxa. All presently known Amniculicola species, A. immersa, A. lignicola and A. parva, form a robust clade together with the anamorphic species Anguillospora longissima, Spirosphaera cupreorufescens and Repetophragma ontariense. These six species, which are all from freshwater and mostly from Europe, constitute a well-supported group containing Pleospora rubicunda and Massariosphaeria typhicola. This putative monophyletic assemblage may represent an aquatic group in the Pleosporales. It is also pertinent that all five ascomycete taxa in this group stain their host substrates purple.

- Persoonia aims to publish papers dealing with molecular phylogeny and evolution of fungi. A further aim is to promote fungal taxonomy by employing a polythetic approach to clarify the true phylogeny and relationships within the kingdom Fungi. The journal publishes high-quality papers elucidating known and novel fungal taxa at the DNA level, and also strives to present novel insights into evolutionary processes and relationships. Papers to be considered include research articles, topical and book reviews.
Papers are published using a Fast Track system. This implies that the papers are immediately published online and freely available through the internet via this website. For effective publication under the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature the online published papers will be distributed in printed form to several libraries at the same time.
Hard copy volumes: Twice a year (June and December) the online published papers will be bound. These volumes new style will be in A4 format and full colour and will be available through the Publications Department of the National Herbarium of the Netherlands.
Persoonia is a journal published jointly by the Nationaal Herbarium Nederland and the Centraalbureau voor Schimmelcultures.
