[en] The primary structure of the small ribosomal subunit RNA (SSU rRNA) was determined for 13 species belonging to 10 ascomycete families and for the basidiomycetous anamorphic yeast Rhodotorula glutinis. The sequences were fitted into an alignment of all hitherto published complete or nearly complete eukaryotic small subunit rRNA sequences. The evolutionary relationships within the fungi were examined by construction of a tree from 87 SSU rRNA sequences, corresponding to 71 different species, by means of a distance matrix method and bootstrap analysis. It confirms the early divergence of the zygomycetes and the classical division of the higher fungi into basidiomycetes and ascomycetes. The basidiomycetes are divided into true basidiomycetes and ustomycetes. Within the ascomycetes, the major subdivisions hemiascomycetes and euascomycetes can be recognized. However, Schizosaccharomyces pombe does not belong to the cluster of the hemiascomycetes, to which it is assigned in classical taxonomic schemes, but forms a distinct lineage. Among the euascomycetes, the plectomycetes and the pyrenomycetes can be distinguished. Within the hemiascomycetes, the polyphyly of genera like Pichia or Candida and of families like the Dipodascaceae and the Saccharomycetaceae can be observed.
