FI G U R E 2  Phylogenetic tree inferred from concatenated Bayesian inference analysis (ITS, LSU, TEF-1α, and RPB1 sequences) of 35 members of the Magnaporthaceae family. Bootstrap values above 70% and Bayesian posterior probabilities above 0.70 are indicated above the nodes. The tree was rooted with Pyricularia grisea Br0029. The bar represents the number of changes in the nucleotide sequence of each 100 bp. The isolates obtained in this study are highlighted in bold
