Fumigatus interstrain variation above mentioned, in a study based on DNA sequence data of five loci Pringle et al.  delineated two phylogenetic species in a set of isolates of A. fumigatus representing different continents. Both genetically isolated groups showed a global distribution with no evidence of a correlation between genotype and geographic location. But these new phylogenetic species are not an exception in the section Fumigati since recent molecular studies have demonstrated the existence of numerous well supported genetic clades, being some of them proposed as new species.
