Abstract

Endoraecium (Raveneliaceae, Pucciniales) is a genus of rust that infects several species of Acacia (Fabaceae) in Australia, south-east Asia and Hawaii. Thirteen species of Endoraecium have been described, including seven species that are endemic to Australia, one species to south-east Asia and five to Hawaii. This study investigated the systematics of Endoraecium from 50 specimens in Australia and south-east Asia with a combined morphological and molecular approach. Phylogenetic analyses were conducted on combined datasets of the SSU, ITS and LSU regions of rDNA. The recovered phylogeny (i) supported a recent division of Endoraecium digitatum into five separate species based on morphology and host specificity and (ii) found lineages that did not correspond with known species.
