The study also supported the monophylogeny of Nimbya from Alternanthera, the species concepts of N. gomphrenae and N. celosiae, and the polyphylogeny of Nimbya. Moderate support was demonstrated for a trend towards speciation among isolates from Alternanthera separated by climate and/or geography.This study revealed the prospective mycoherbicide of alligator weed candidate to be polymorphic and belong to a new taxon different from Nimbya and closer to Alternaria. Significant knowledge has been added to the study of relationships among close relatives of Alternaria and a firm taxonomic base has now been laid for the evaluation as a mycoherbicide of the many polymorphic isolates of Nimbya on alligator weed.
