Species and varieties in the Rhizopus arrhizus-Rhizopus oryzae group as indicated by their DNA complementarity
Mycologia 77(2): 243-247
Results of DNA renaturation experiments indicated that the 11 strs. tested can be accommodated in 3 taxa: R. arrhizus var. arrhizus, R. a. var. rouxii and R. a. var. delemar. Two isolates referred to R. oryzae (including the presumed type) showed > 95% relatedness with R. arrhizus var. arrhizus. R. arrhizus is retained as it has date precedence over R. oryzae.
