Phylogenetic affinity of Korean Anemone (Ranunculaceae) based on morphology and molecular data.

The genus Anemone L. consists of about 150 species mainly in the northern temperate zones. The most recent treatment recognized fourteen native species in Korea. Among them Anemone raddeana and A. reflexa are the most common species, and A. koraiense and A. pendulisepala are endemic to Korea. A. koraiense is distinguished from the other taxa by solitary flower and presence of hairs on peduncles and ovaries. A. pendulisepala, recently described as a new species, is distributed in sympatry with A. reflexa, A. amurensis, and A. raddeana at Mt. Taebaek and Mt. Baekdu. A. pendulisepala was previously proposed to be the hybrid species between A. reflexa and A. amurensis because it displays overlapping feature variations with them in involucre shape, petiole length, sepal apex and xylem shape. The evolutionary relationships among these taxa and the characters best to distinguish them are unclear. We present the results of the phylogenetic analyses of morphological characters and nrDNA ITS sequences. The chloroplast DNA sequences from the psbA-trnH, rps16 and trnLF regions are currently being obtained.
