Typification of the Species of Aspergillus and Associated Teleomorphs

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 102)


The typification of 190 taxa of Aspergillus and associated teleomorphs is investigated and adjusted to meet the rules of the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature. When no dried type specimen was indicated by the original author(s), a lectotype is designated. In 24 cases where the original names apply to the teleomorph (in combination with Aspergillus or other generic names) and no other names are available for the anamorph, new names are proposed for the anamorph.
