Maximum likelihood phylogeny of LipS: Instances of stwintron loss in Leotiomycetes. A subtree of the phylogenetic analysis depicted in Fig. 3, is shown in detail to highlight the loss of the stwintron from taxa of Leotiomycetes. Class-specific color coding is the same as in Fig. 3. Species that have lost the stwintron from their lipS gene have their name printed in red lettering. Independent events of stwintron loss are also indicated by red triangles on the directly preceding branches (NB. The position of the triangles does not correspond with the exact time point at which stwintron loss has taken place)
