Abstract

The phylogeny of the lichen genera Anaptychia (Physciaceae, Euascomycetes) and Physconia was studied using nucleotide sequences of the mitochondrial ribosomal small subunit (mtSSU rDNA) and the internal transcribed spacers of the nuclear ribosomal repeat (ITS). Phylogenetic analyses of the combined data set demonstrated that all included eight Anaptychia species formed a monophyletic group, as did the species of Physconia. The two gene regions revealed qualitatively similar relationships within the genus.
