Sequence comparisons of selected regions from small (18S) and large (25S) subunit rRNAs were used to examine species relationships in the anamorphic yeast genera , and . On the basis of sequence similarity, the genus is comprised of and , while the genus contains three recognized species, , and and are well separated from the other species which we examined. Comparisons with selected teleomorphs indicated that the genus is closely related to the genus , whereas the genus exhibited somewhat closer relatedness with the genus . Impacting on our estimates of relatedness was the finding that nucleotide substitution in the rRNA regions which we examined seems relatively constant only among closely related species.
