The Pyrenomycete Centrum— Loculoascomycetes

Part of the Springer Series in Microbiology book series (SSMIC)


Ascoloculares (Nannfeldt, 1932) and loculoascomycetes (Luttrell, 1955) are different names for the same taxon. They refer to essentially the same series of ascomycetes, delimited in essentially the same way. “Loculoascomycetes” was proposed as a variant of Ascoloculares, primarily to make the ending conform to that for fungus taxa, -mycetes. Syllables, wisely or not, were transposed—from ascoloculo to loculoasco—to follow the pattern set by euascomycetes and hem-iascomycetes. This may strain the definition of orthographic variant, but the intent was clearly stated. If the rank of subclass is maintained, the name must be modified to Loculoascomycetidae.
