Phylogenetic relationships of Meliola and Meliolina inferred from nuclear small subunit rRNA sequences

  • GREGORY S. SAENZ (a1) and JOHN W. TAYLOR (a1)

Abstract

The phylogenetic relationships of two Meliola spp., one Meliolina sp., and 36 other ascomycetes were inferred from sequences of the nuclear small subunit ribosomal RNA gene. Phylogenetic analyses revealed that the Meliolaceae are members of the unitunicate Pyrenomycetes, and are not closely related to the bitunicate ascomycetes. The Meliolaceae have been hypothesised to be closely related to the Erysiphaceae, but the cladistic analyses showed that the two families are not closely related. The phylogenetic position of Meliolina is found amongst the bitunicate ascomycetes making it distantly related to the Meliolaceae.
