Abstract

The phylogenetic position of the has been re-examined by using phosphoglycerate kinase (Pgk) amino acid sequences. Hitherto unpublished sequences from subsp. , and were included in the analysis. Phylogenetic trees based on Pgk data indicated a monophyletic origin for the within the , whereas () and () appeared to be paraphyletic. With two exceptions, i.e. () and (), which clustered within the , comparative analyses show that at a low taxonomic level, the resolved phylogenetic relationships that were inferred from both the Pgk protein and 16S rRNA gene sequence data are congruent.
