Abstract

The current status of the taxonomy of the plant-infecting Clavicipitaceae is evaluated. Particular emphasis is placed on current problems in classification, including the paraphyletic relationship of the Clavicipitales with the Hypocreales and the definition of the genera Balansia, Claviceps, Epichloë, Neotyphodium, Parepichloë, and Ustilaginoidea. The use of a phylogenetic approach is advocated to assist in the definition of genera. The morphological and ecological criteria employed to define species among the plant-infecting Clavicipitaceae are also discussed.
