Molecular sequence data are used to explore the phylogenetic distribution of secondary metabolites and metabolite classes among species of Lepraria. All substance classes examined were phylogenetically widespread, except for � -orcinol meta-depsides and anthraquinones, which appeared rare and restricted to a single major clade. Benzyl esters were also found to be rare. Taxa producing each substance class examined were not monophyletic. The ability to regularly produce orcinol para- depsides… Expand
