Botrytis and Botrytis-like genera.

Abstract

Critical revision of Botrytis-like genera leads to recognition of B., Chromelosporium, Glischroderma and Ostracoderma. Phymatotrichum is synonymized with B. and previously assigned spp. are reconsidered. The following new genera are recognized: Pulchromyces (for Phymatotrichum fimicola); Phymatotrichopsis (for Phymatotrichum omnivorum); Streptobotrys, Amphobotrys and Verrucobotrys (for conidial states of the Sclerotiniaceae); and Dichobotrys (for the conidial state of operculate Discomycetes of the genus Trichophaea).
