Hi CE,

You're right, the Taxonomy Browser doesn't give any detail about
relationships within the Aspergilli.

Here's another possibility:

Wang L, Yokoyama K, Miyaji M, Nishimura K. The identification and
phylogenetic relationship of pathogenic species of Aspergillus based on the
mitochondrial cytochrome b gene. Med Mycol. 1998 Jun;36(3):153-64. PMID:
9776828; UI: 99065785

I haven't seen the paper, but from the abstract it sounds like it might
contain what you're looking for.
