Four-gene phylogeny of the new alkalitolerant isolates within the Emericellopsis-clade based on partial sequences for ITS (including 5.8S rDNA), β-tub, RPB2 and TEF1-α genes. All strains studied are in bold. Bayesian topology is displayed with the ML/PP support values over each node. Thickened branches indicate strong combined support (ML>90, PP>0.94). T — type/ex-type strains. Representative strains from each delineated clade are shown on AA medium plates (11-d-old).
