Bayesian 50% majority-rule consensus tree of the Microbotryum strains analyzed in this study based on the concatenation of β-tub, γ-tub and EF1α sequences, and delimitation of the corresponding species. Statistical supports indicate Bayesian Posterior Probabilities (BPP)/Maximum Parsimony Bootstraps/Neighbor-Joining Bootstraps. Only nodes supported by more than two methods are indicated, the significant statistical supports being considered as higher than respectively 0.9/70/70. High support in individual gene trees was indicated: + for the γ-tub tree, × for the Ef1α tree, # for the β-tub tree. The tree is rooted based on previous studies (see text). Taxa labels correspond to the host plant on which fungal strains were collected. Brackets indicate clades and evolutionary units, i.e. cryptic fungal species, identified in the study using the three individual gene phylogenies (see text).
