Abstract

Two putative group I introns in the nuclear ribosomal RNA genes of Hymenoscyphus ericae are described. One is in the small subunit gene about 30 nucleotides upstream of the 3′ end of the gene at a site common to several other group I introns. The other is in the large subunit gene approx. 930 bp downstream of the 5′ end of the gene. This is the only report of an intron at this location.
