Portada-MycologiaApril 1, 2015: Ronikier and Lado’s new article on nivicolous Stemonitales has just come out in Mycologia. This fine-scale analysis demonstrates the existence of a high intraspecific morphological variability, possibly related to isolation and independent evolutionary processes among remote populations, in most of the studied species. However, a few of them show a uniform morphology that indicates that long-distance dispersal is an effective mechanism, although not as universal as usually assumed.
