Objectives
To verify whether Luttrell's hypothesis that loculoascomycetes are phylogentically distinct from unitunicate ascomycetes based on several genes; to assess the usefulness of different genes used in fungal molecular phylogenetics; to test the hypothesis that certain named anamorphic fungi are part of the life cycle of their associated telemorphs; to validate (or refute) the various current terms for morphological structures of fruiting bodies and interascal filaments,
