A phylogenetic analysis based on internal transcribed spacer regions of the nuclear ribosomal RNA region (ITS) sequences has been undertaken for species in the genus Schizopora. Four known species were studied, viz. S. radula, S. paradoxa, S. flavipora, S. nothofagi, and a hitherto undescribed species from Taiwan. Allopatric differentiation was apparent in S. radula, for which several geographically representive samples were available. Among these, ITS sequence data obtained from S. radula isolates from British Columbia and Australasia were identical. All previously recognised Schizopora species were well separated from each other with respect to their ITS sequences. Mating compatibility tests also showed complete reproductive separation between species, but intercompatibility between cultures from the same species, irrespective of geographical origin. Overall, the morphology of basidiomes of S. radula from New Zealand differs only in minor respects from those of European and Argentinean origin, but shows a higher degree of variability than described for European specimens.
