[…] al transcribed spacer region (ITS) sequences from Xanthoparmelia (n = 198), Melanohalea (489), Melanelixia (264), and their close relatives, Montanelia (60) and Emodomelanelia (2), were obtained from TreeBase (S11457 & S18577). A previous species delimitation and taxonomic study of Melanelixia and Melanohalea was based on sampling of worldwide populations, and approximately 20% of species in these […]
