Fig. 2

Phylogram generated from the analysis of six gene regions (28S, EF1α, RPB2, TUB, gpd and actin-1) from 58 taxa. Guyanagaster is the earliest diverging lineage and is sister to the mushroom-forming armillarioid species. The exannulate armillarioid species are the next to diverge, and compose Desarmillaria. The annulate armillarioid species form a monophyletic lineage and compose Armillaria sensu stricto. The major lineages within Armillaria are indicated in bold text at the corresponding node. The exannulate armillarioid species are sister to the annulate armillarioid species. Strobilurus esculentus and Oudemansiella mucida were selected as outgroup taxa. Black circles represent support of 90% (maximum likelihood bootstrap values, shown as percentages) and 0.95 BPP (Bayesian posterior probabilities) or greater, grey circles represent support of 0.95 BPP or greater and white circles represent support of 75% or greater.
