Data from: A new perspective on Melanophloea, Thelocarpella and Trimmatothelopsis: species previously placed in multiple families are united within a single genus in the Acarosporaceae

Kerry Knudsen & James C. Lendemer
Recent molecular phylogenetic studies of the lichen family Acarosporaceae have shown that genera in this group, as traditionally defined, are not monophyletic and that changes are required to accommodate the discovery that taxa with disparate thallus morphologies are often closely related. Here we use phylogenetic inferences of mtSSU sequence data to show that seven species (Acarospora dispersa, A. rhizobola, A. terricola, Melanophloea americana, M. coreana, M. montana and Thelocarpella gordensis), currently placed in four genera...
