Phylogenetic relationships of ITS ribotypes (H1–H33) of Platycrater arguta . Individuals of Hydrangea anomala, H. chinensis and Schizophragma hydrangeoides were used as outgroup taxa. Phylogenetic analyses using maximum parsimony (MP) and maximum likelihood (ML) produced trees with the same topology regarding major lineages. Only the MP strict consensus tree is presented. Numbers above and below the branches indicate, respectively, MP and ML bootstrap values (> 50%).
