The results showed that Zygomycota were represented by two species (about 9.09% of total species number), teleomorphic Ascomycota (by 4 species, 18.18%) and the anamorphic Ascomycota (represented by 16 species, 72.72%).
According to the results, the representative sequences and reference sequences obtained from GenBank were aligned by using the Clustal X (Version 1.83), and Mortierella polycephala, the species of Zygomycota, which is a sister group to Glomeromycota [25], was used as the out-group.
