Letharia, a genus of lichenized fungi de- scribed as a pair of sympatric species, one making abundant sexual structures and the other making few, was investigated as a model system in which to recognize species boundaries. Gene genealogies of 6 and 12 loci were used to estimate the evolutionary history of Letharia, based on the principles of lineage sorting of alleles in divergent lineages after genetic isolation. Instead of a species pair consisting of a pu- tative clonal species derived from… CONTINUE READING
