ABSTRACTWe used an ITS2 primary and secondary structure and Compensatory Base Changes(CBCs) analyses on new French and Spanish
 Dunallela salina
strains to investigatetheir phylogenetic position and taxonomic status within the genus
. Ouranalyses show a great diversity within
 D. salina
(with only some clades not statisticallysupported) and reveal considerable genetic diversity and structure within
,although the CBC analysis did not bolster the existence of different biological groupswithin this taxon. The ITS2 sequences of the new Spanish and French
 D. salina
strainswere very similar except for two of them: ITC5105 “Janubio” from Spain and ITC5119from France. Although the Spanish one had a unique ITS2 sequence profile and thephylogenetic tree indicates that this strain can represent a new species, this hypothesiswas not confirmed by CBCs, and clarification of its taxonomic status requires furtherinvestigation with new data. Overall, the use of CBCs to define species boundarieswithin
was not conclusive in some cases, and the ITS2 region does notcontain a geographical signal overall.KEY INDEX WORDSCanary Islands, Compensatory Base Changes,
