Figure 1. Neighbor-joining tree based on β-tubulin sequence data of the Emericella isolates examined. Clinical isolates are set in boldface. Numbers above branches are bootstrap values. Only values >70% are indicated. T indicates the type strain; * indicates the isolates that had been misidentified by morphologic identification as E. nidulans. Scale bar represents genetic distance calculated by the Kimura 2-parameter model (18).
