patens, namely, Timmia austriaca (class Bryopsida, subclass Timmiidae), Tetraphis pellucida (class Tetraphidopsida), Bartramiopsis lescurii (class Polytrichopsida), Polytrichum commune (class Polytrichopsida), Andreaea rupistris (class Andreaeopsida), Oedipodium griffithianum (class Oedipodiopsida), and Sphagnum squarrosum (class Sphagnopsida).
Particularly, we tested moss species from Timmia austriaca (class Bryopsida, subclass Timmiidae), Tetraphis pellucida (Tetraphidopsida), Polytrichum commune (Polytrichopsida), and Andreaea rupestris (Andreaeopsida).
This dendrogram also showed that TAS3 sequences from representatives of Tetraphidopsida, Polytrichopsida, and Andreaeopsida positioned mostly as basal molecular species in two main moss TAS3 clusters (Figure 5).
