Families and Genera of Uncertain Position

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 269)


In this section we focus on the 28 accepted ascomycete families which could not be assigned to an order in the Outline for 1990, and also 203 accepted genera which were not placed in any family. The number of unplaced, but yet accepted, taxa in these categories is a salutary reminder of how much work is required before a fully synthetic system for even the already described ascomycetes on Earth can be produced.
