The major publication of my postdoc is now out — all 65 pages of it — in Studies in Mycology. In this publication we review the taxonomy of the fungus commonly known as Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, and reveal that is a complex (or species aggregate) of 22 different species. We also recognise one subspecies, and informally recognise another “species” at the f. sp. level (pending further research).
The ITS gene region has been selected as the official gene for fungal barcoding in a recent publication of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Myself and two colleagues from Landcare Research are co-authors of the paper (as members of the Fungal Barcoding Consortium).
