With the change to one scientific name for fungal species, numerous papers have been
published with recommendations for use or protection of competing generic names in major groups
of ascomycetes. Although genera in each group of fungi were carefully considered, some competing
generic names were overlooked. This paper makes recommendations for additional competing genera
not considered in previous papers. Chairs of relevant Working Groups of the ICTF were consulted in
the development of these recommendations. A number of generic names need protection, specifically
Amarenographium over Amarenomyces, Amniculicola over Anguillospora, Balansia over Ephelis,
Claviceps over Sphacelia, Drepanopeziza over Gloeosporidiella and Gloeosporium, Golovinomyces
over Euoidium, Holwaya over Crinium, Hypocrella over Aschersonia, Labridella over Griphosphaerioma,
Metacapnodium over Antennularia, and Neonectria over Cylindrocarpon and Heliscus. The following
new combinations are made: Amniculicola longissima, Atichia maunauluana, Diaporthe columnaris, D.
liquidambaris, D. longiparaphysata, D. palmicola, D. tersa, Elsinoë bucidae, E.caricae, E. choisyae,
E. paeoniae, E. psidii, E. zorniae, Eupelte shoemakeri, Godronia myrtilli, G. raduloides, Sarcinella
mirabilis, S. pulchra, Schizothyrium jamaicense, and Trichothallus niger. Finally, one new species name,
Diaporthe azadirachte, is introduced to validate an earlier name, and the conservation of Discula with a
new type, D. destructiva, is recommended.
