From the annual meeting of the Mycolgical Society of America and British Mycological Society, Asilomar 2003:

The family Aliquandostipitaceae was erected for the genus, Aliquandostipite, which contained two species of tropical ascomycetes. In a later study, molecular phylogeny indicated that one of these species, A. sunyatsenii, was more closely related to Jahnula and was thus transferred. At the same time a new species of Jahnula , J. siamensiae was described, although molecular analyses indicated this species had closer affinities to Aliquandostipite. A new genus, Patescospora was erected for a species that also had phylogenetic affinities with Aliquandostipite. To better understand the relationships of species within Aliquandostipitaceae, molecular phylogenetic analyses were performed using 18S rDNA sequences on six species of Jahnula, two undescribed species of Jahnula, one species of Aliquandostipite, two undescribed species of Aliquandostipite and one species of Patescospora. Jahnula sunyatsenii, is placed on a monophyletic clade with four species of Jahnula and the two undescribed species of Jahnula, indicating that it was correctly moved into Jahnula. The type species of Aliquandostipite, A. khaoyaiensis, is placed on a monophyletic clade with Patescospora separans, Jahnula siamensiae and two undescribed species of Aliquandostipite. Based upon these molecular results, and confirmed with morphological comparisons, generic transfers are proposed and new species are described. Poster

Current taxonomy is taken from Fungorum, but it probably needs revising, since Fungorum themselves places Genus Jahnula in incertae sedis and no longer in the order Jahnulales. Kempm 10:19, 1 September 2006 (UTC)[reply]
