A) Consensus maximum-parsimony tree of 8 concatenated gene fragments of Geomyces destructans. Data were derived from 13 G. destructans test isolates. G. destructans M1379 and G. pannorum M1378 were used as controls in this study; they were described in an earlier report (3). The number 515 on the branch indicates the total number of variable nucleotide positions (of 4,722 nt) separating G. pannorum M1372 from the clonal genotype of G. destructans. Isolation dates are shown in parentheses (YYYY M

Isolation dates are shown in parentheses (YYYY MMM DD). Scale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site. B) States color-matched to panel A to show where G. destructans isolates were found; dots indicate locations of positive test results.
