Huang, Bo, Chunru Li, Richard A. Humber, Kathie T. Hodge, Meizhen Fan & Zengzhi Li. Molecular evidence for the taxonomic status of Metarhizium taii and its teleomorph, Cordyceps taii (Hypocreales, Clavicipitaceae). Mycotaxon 94: 137-147. 2005.

ABSTRACT: ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 rDNA was amplified, cloned and sequenced from the stroma of Cordyceps taii, mycelium of Metarhizium taii and cultures of M. anisopliae var. anisopliae from China. Analysis of integrated data of different strains and varieties of M. anisopliae and M. flavoviride from GenBank showed that Metarhizium taii should be treated as a synonym of M. anisopliae var. anisopliae. The ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 rDNA sequences of C. taii and M. taii are identical, indicating that the teleomorph of M. anisopliae var. anisopliae is Cordyceps taii.

KEYWORDS: molecular systematics, anamorph-teleomorph connection, synonymy Cordyceps brittlebankisoides
