Fig. 2

The phylogenetic position of Fusicladium effusum in comparison with other related fungal species. The tree was developed based on the 18S rRNA gene of the sequenced isolate of F. effusum, an accession of the 18S rRNA gene of another F. effusum isolate, and accessions of other members of the family Venturiaceae (genera Fusicladium and Venturia) and an outgroup with representatives from other Ascomycota from the class Dothidiomyectes (Phyllosticta harai, Staniwardia suttonii, Mycosphaerella graminicola and M. verrucosiafricana). The sequence data were subjected to phylogenetic analysis using CLUSTALX2 [25] and MEGA5 [38] to construct a nearest neighbor joining tree (numbers adjacent to branches are support values from 1000 bootstraps). The tree is drawn to scale in TreeView [26], with branch lengths measured in the number of substitutions per site - 0.1 on the scale bar represents 4 substitutions in 100 bp. The evolutionary history was inferred from 224 aligned characters. The GenBank accession numbers for each stain are shown in parenthesis
