Sequences were aligned by means of the CLUSTAL V (DNASTAR) program; phylogenetic trees were constructed with the Phylogeny Inference Package (PHYLIP), showing that YLSTo belong to the fungi class Pyrenomycetes, phylum Ascomycota.
The position of YLSTo within the phylum Ascomycota was determined after aligning the complete sequence of the NS1-6 (1438 nt) clone with that of eleven ascomycete fungi: Arcoesphaera apis, Aspergyillus fumigatus, Coccidioides immitis (Class Plectomycetes); Hypomyces chrysospermus, Ophiostoma ulmi, Podospora anserina (Class Pyrenomycetes); Lecanora dispersa, Spathularia flavida, Spaenophorus globosus (Class Discomycetes); Candida albicans, Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Order Saccharomycetales) and Ustilago maydis (Class Basidiomycetes) as an outgroup (Fig.
The symbiotes of the beetle Lasioderma serricorne (YLSLse) were placed outside the class Pyrenomycetes and grouped with S.
