Original Paper


The phylogenetic positions of the families Campynemataceae and Corsiaceae within the order Liliales remains unclear. To date, molecular data from the plastid genome of Corsiaceae has been obtained exclusively from Arachnitis, for which alignment and phylogenetic inference has proved difficult. The extent of gene conservation among mycoheterotrophic species within Corsiaceae remains unknown. To clarify the phylogenetic position of Campynemataceae and Corsiaceae within Liliales, functional plastid-coding genes of species representing both families have been analyzed. Examination of two phylogenetic data sets of plastid genes employing parsimony, maximum-likelihood, and Bayesian inference methods strongly supported both families forming a basal clade to the remaining taxa of Liliales. The first data set consists of five functional plastid-encoded genes (matK, rps7, rps2, rps19, and rpl2) sequenced from Corsia dispar (Corsiaceae). The data set included 31 species representing all families within Liliales, as well as selected orders that are related closely to Liliales (10 outgroup species from Asparagales, Dioscoreales, and Pandanales). The second phylogenetic analysis was based on 75 plastid genes. This data set included 18 species from Liliales, representing major clades within the order, and 10 outgroup species from Asparagales, Dioscoreales, and Pandanales. In this latter data set, Campynemataceae was represented by 60 plastid-encoded genes sequenced from herbarium material of Campynema lineare. A large proportion of the plastid genome of C. dispar was also sequenced and compared to the plastid genomes of photosynthetic plants within Liliales and mycoheterotrophic plants within Asparagales to explore plastid genome reduction. The plastid genome of C. dispar is in the advanced stages of reduction, which signifies its high dependency on mycorrhizal fungi and is suggestive of a loss in photosynthetic ability. Functional plastid genes found in C. dispar may be applicable to other species in Corsiaceae, which will provide a basis for in-depth molecular analyses of interspecies relationships within the family, once molecular data from other members become available.
