Grant-Downton Nucleic Acid Sequence as a Phylogenetic Analysis Tool in Botrytis Staats et al. (2005) performed the first molecular phylogenetic analysis using isolates of all the recognized species at the time. Although nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequence had been previously used by Holst-Jensen et al. (1998), its utility was restricted to demonstrating that the genus Botrytis was monophyletic and it could not resolve the relationships between species due to limited phylogenetically informative sequence characters.

2010; Zhou et al. 2010). The full extent of Botrytis diversity as endophytic fungi remains unknown. Indeed, the recently identified B. deweyae (Grant-Downton et al. 2014), which causes a disease of emerging spring foliage of cultivated Hemerocallis (daylily), is suspected to have endophytic origins. Its sudden emergence as a pathogen may be in part due to physiological changes in the host as a result of their recent intense selection and in-breeding in cultivation. 5 Dispersal The common method of dispersal of nearly all species of Botrytis is by transmission of conidia in air currents.
