This special issue of Studies in Mycology has been dedicated to Joan M. Dingley on the occasion of her 90th birthday. Joan Dingley received international status as mycologist for her excellent monographic work dealing with the Hypocreales of New Zealand. This special issue consists of four papers focusing on Trichoderma and their Hypocrea teleomorphs (Jaklitsch et al. 2006, Overton et al. 2006a, b, Samuels et al. 2006). Overton et al. (2006a, b) dealt with some conspicuous, mainly fungicolous Hypocreaspecies which have inconspicuous anamorphs. Samuels et al. (2006) (T. koningii clade) and Jaklitsch et al. 2006 (T. viride clade) dealt with some of the commonest, but very complex species, in which the Trichoderma anamorph outweighs the teleomorph in ecological success and differentiation. These groups include some important biocontrol agents. 

This volume describes the new taxonomic developments in Hypocrea and its economically important Trichoderma anamorphs. It contains four contributions dealing with (1) Hypocrea citrina and related species; (2) Trichoderma anamorphs of the section Hypocreanum of nine species of Hypocrea; (3) the Trichoderma koningii aggregate with the (re)description of T. koningiiT. ovalisporum and the new species T. caribbaeum var. caribbaeumT. caribbaeum var. aequatorialeT. dorotheaeT. dingleyaeT. intricatumT. koningiopsisT. peterseniT. taiwanenseT. rogersonii and T. austrokoningii, and the new anamorph T. stilbohypoxyli (4). A reassessment of the complex of Hypocrea rufa and Trichoderma viride with the description of five taxa.
