  • Several cases of speciation by hybridization have been reported in fungi, mostly involving recent hybridization between closely related species. In the basidiomycete genus Microbotryum by contrast some species were suspected to have arisen by hybridization between moderately distant species. In particular two species, M. lagerheimii and M. silenes-acaulis, had different placements in phylogenetic trees depending on the genes considered. Microbotryum species exhibit bipolar heterothallism, and… CONTINUE READING
