  Figure Legend. Phylogenetic trees of Auriculibuller fuscus, Bullera japonica and related taxa of the Tremellales (names in boldface correspond to the organisms discussed in the comparison of basidial types and/or to new taxa). A. Bayesian Markov chain Monte Carlo analysis of an alignment of the D1/D2 region of the 26S rDNA. Numbers on branches are estimates for a posteriori probabilities, i.e., probabilities that the respective groups are monophyletic given the alignment. The topology was rooted with Filobasidium floriforme, F. uniguttulatum and F. capsuligenum. Schematic illustrations of basidial types are inserted for Auriculibuller, Bulleromyces, Papiliotrema [redrawn from Sampaio et al. (2002)] and selected Tremella species [redrawn from Chen (1998); the basidial types of T. moriformis and T. indecorata are basically similar to T. nivalis and are not show]. B. Unrooted maximum parsimony ITS tree (single most parsimonious tree).
