A comprehensive classification of the filamentous marine fungi is outlined, with reference to recent molecular phylogenetic analyses. The classification includes 530 species (in 321 genera) to order level: Ascomycota 424 species (in 251 genera), anamorphic fungi 94 species (in 61 genera) and Basidiomycota 12 species (in 9 genera). The Halosphaeriales is the largest order of marine fungi with 126 species in 53 genera, of which 35 are monotypic. Several taxi are of uncertain position and cannot be assigned to any higher taxonomic ranks. The decadel index shows that most marine fungi were described in the period 1980-1989 (135) and 1990-1999 (156), with 43 new species and 25 new genera front the past eight years. Keys are provided to the major taxa, genera and species. One new species is described in this paper.
