Does MATK, TRNH-PSBA, TRNL-F And Its1 Identification Mirror Morphological Identification in Hibisceae?
DNA barcoding applied to conservation, and food authentication contributes to attaining the United Nations goals for sustainability. However, congruence between morphological and molecular data in plant species identification needs further study in specific taxons sampled in particular areas. Malaysian samples were used to test congruence between morphologically identified Hibisceae species with their identification based on

Species within the tribe Hibisceae such as Hibiscus sabdariffa L., Hibiscus rosa-sinensis and Malvaviscus arboreus (formerly known as Hibiscus arboreus) are valuable as sources of medicine or food in society (Chen et al., 2010). Correct identification of these species ensures the safety and efficacy of their products.
Morphology based identification, while the gold standard for species identification (Chan et al., 2014), is not straightforward. H. rosa-sinensis has many forms (Bates,1965; Singh & Khoshoo, 1989), perhaps due to the mixed ancestry of H. rosa-sinensis, which involved mating’s of many species including H. kokio, and H. arnottianus (Palmer & Palmer, 1954; Wilcox & Holt, 1913). In the case of M. arboreus, the Malvaviscus penduliflorus is very similar and sometimes regarded as a variety of that species (M. arboreus var. penduliflorus; Schery, 1942). Species delimitation within the Furcaria section to which H. sabdariffa belongs is also difficult due to overlapping morphologies (Sivarajan & Pradeep 1996).
The difficulties and arising errors in morphological identification and taxonomy may be overcome by combining it with molecular identification (Batovska et al., 2016). While molecular based studies (RAPD-PCR, ISSR-PCR or AFLP) have been used in identifying Hibiscus species (Kadve et al., 2012; Khafaga, 2013; Omalsaad et al., 2014; Tang et al., 2003), DNA barcoding has not been widely used. Loci such as atpB, rbcL, and ndhF, have focused on phylogeny at higher taxonomic levels (Pfeil et al., 2002; Pfeil & Crisp, 2005; Tate & Simpson, 2003). Only two studies specifically on Hibisceae and DNA barcoding were found in November of 2019, that is, the studies of Poovitha et al., (2016) and Liu et al. (2014).
DNA barcoding is an easy method (Kress & Erickson, 2008) which uses one or a few short, standardised DNA region(s) and checks this query against a database (Hebert et al., 2003). As such, DNA barcoding is widely used (Kress, 2017), and could help overcome the problems with identification of Hibisceae using morphology.
Among the barcoding loci recommended for species-level identification are the maturase K gene (matK) (Hollingsworth et al., 2011), intergenic spacer trnH-psbA (Kress et al., 2005), internal transcribed spacer, ITS1 (Wang et al., 2015) and intergenic spacer trnL-F (Hao et al., 2009). These loci, however, do not perform well across all plants (Dong et al., 2015). The matK locus exhibits low amplification and sequencing rates due to lack of universality of primers and the presence of mononucleotide repeats (Yu et al., 2011). The trnH-psbA marker often poses a problem in sequencing due to homopolymer tails resulting in stutter peaks (Shinde et al., 2003). The ITS locus is a multicopy marker, where homogenisation may be incomplete (Harpke & Peterson, 2006), leading to poor sequence quality. The trnL-F locus, in turn, poses a problem because it may have mononucleotide repeats, duplicated copies of the trnF gene as in Brassicaceae, or lost the intergenic spacer as in some taxa (Hollingsworth et al., 2011).
Correct species identification is essential in all fields of biology (Tosh et al., 2016). As expertise for species identification is often unavailable (Coissac et al., 2012), molecular identification has been proposed (Hebert et al., 2003). However, molecular identification too has its problems (Hollingsworth et al., 2011) and optimising these molecular tools has the potential to make species identification more accessible and accurate. The success of species identification using DNA barcoding depends very much on the taxa in question, as much as the utilised marker (Amandita et al., 2019). For example, in Hibiscus, including
The question is, whether there is congruence between DNA based identification using ITS1,
Purpose of the Study
This study aims to:
1) identify three Hibisceae species in Malaysia, using morphology, and
2) test if the loci (ITS1,
Morphological identification, followed by molecular identification, are described below.
Sample Collection and Morphological Identification
Three individuals from each of the three morphologically distinct taxons within the Tribe Hibisceae were obtained and characterised using the morphology of flowers and leaves. Ten replicates were observed or measured for each species.
Molecular identification involved obtaining sequences, checking for noise and evaluating these sequences using two sequence analysis methods for better reliability.
DNA Extraction, Amplification, and Sequencing
A modified CTAB protocol (Doyle & Doyle, 1987) was used to extract DNA. The modification involved the addition of 0.04g polyvinylpyrrolidone and 5.0µl -mercaptoethanol per ml of buffer. Polymerase Chain Reactions (PCR) using My Taq™ Mix (Bioline, USA) were performed according to the manufacturer’s protocol using primers and conditions listed in Table
DNA Sequence Assembler v4 software (2013) was used to obtain the quality of sequences, generate consensus sequences, remove low-quality sequence ends and trim out primer sequences. Further analysis, used consensus sequences or if not produced, used single reads, having a Phred score > 30, which indicated moderate to high quality (Ratnasingham & Hebert, 2007).
The assignment to a species used the final (query) sequence to compare against the NCBI database using BLAST (Altschul et al., 1990) for the best match. The lower E-value, higher score, and percentage identity indicated the most probable species (Fassler & Cooper, 2011). Additionally, a phylogenetic tree to determine discrimination between the taxons was drawn using sequences from this study and sequences retrieved from GenBank from the same and closely related species. Sequences were aligned with T-coffee (Di Tommaso et al., 2011). Then the maximum likelihood phylogenetic tree was generated using the best-fitting model of nucleotide substitution for each locus data as indicated by the Akaike Information Criterion (AIC). Mega X software was used to calculate AIC and generate the tree (Kumar et al., 2018). One thousand bootstrap replicates maintained adequate sampling (Pattengale et al., 2009), and bootstrap support was categorised as weak (50 - 70%), moderate (70 - 85%) and strong (>85%), according to Kress et al. (2002). Loci were analysed independently, to accommodate the potentially different histories and rates of change among loci (Maddison, 1997; Kubatko & Degnan, 2007). Monophyly was used to infer species discrimination and true identity.
Detecting Possible Noise
Fragment length and GC content determined using MEGA X (Kumar et al., 2018), when similar to previously reported values indicated the authenticity of DNA loci amplified (Buckler & Holtsford, 1996). Authenticity in the coding locus
Morphological and molecular characterisation are presented individually, followed by the comparison of species identification by the two methods.
Gross morphology differentiated the three species and identified them as members of the tribe Hibisceae. The three species were identified as Hibiscus rosa-sinensis (HRS-W), Hibiscus sabdariffa (HS) and Malvaviscus arboreus (MA).
H. sabdariffa was identified mainly by the thickened midribs and marginal ribs of the calyx (Figure 01B) as reported by Ross (2003). Additional characters supported this identification such as the bell-shaped corolla of pale pink colour with dark red centre (Figure 01A), the five obovate petals, 0.9 ± 1 cm long staminal column, and bell-shaped calyx (Figure 01B, C), with five triangular lobes of 2.0 ± 0.1 cm length, all of which approximate the values and descriptions reported for H. sabdariffa (Monaco Nature Encyclopaedia, n.d.). The size of the flower (3.4 ± 0.4 cm in width), number of bracts (8–10) and presence of alternate, lobed leaves with toothed margins, 9 ± 1.2 cm long also tally with the characteristics of this species described by Morton (1987). Additional characteristics recorded in this study that is petal length, and width, with means of 2.8 ± 0.4 cm, and 2.1 ± 0.1 cm respectively, as well as peduncle length of mean 0.7 ± 0.3 cm, are smaller than reported in the Monaco Nature Encyclopaedia, (n. d.) but could be due to the different varieties of H. sabdariffa with different characteristics (Torres-Morán, et al., 2011).
M. arboreus was identified to the genus Malvaviscus by it leaf shape (Figure 01H) and floral architecture (Figure 01E) of never opening fully but remaining as a contorted tube, each auriculate petal overlapping the next as reported in Turner and Mendenhall (1993). Naskar and Mandal (2014) recorded ten style branches, with a staminal tube approximately 2 cm long (Figure 01F, G), which tally with the results of this study and differentiate this Malvaviscus species from the other two Hibiscus species used in this study. M. arboreus was distinguished from Malvaviscus pendiliflorus, by the size of its corollas and calyces which have mean lengths of 2.5 ± 0.3 cm and 1.1 ± 0.1cm respectively. These lengths are in the range exhibited by M. arboreus and not M. pendiliflorus (Turner & Mendenhall,1993).
Samples identified as H. rosa-sinensis had characters comparable to that reported for this species by El Sayed, Ateya, and Fekry (2012) as well as other researchers. For example, the leaf was simple, ovate to oblong-lanceolate in shape having an acuminate apex, entire margin in the lower half part and dentate margin in the upper half as in Figure 01K (El Sayed et al., 2012; Salamah, Prihatiningsih, Rostina, & Dwiranti, 2018). El Sayed et al. (2012) also described the epicalyx (Figure 01J) as consisting of green bracts forming a whorl outside the calyx, 6–8 in number, linear-lanceolate shaped, and measuring 0.8–1.2 cm in length, similar to our results. The H. rosa-sinensis bracteoles are also free, unlike in H. sabdariffa (Ayanbamiji, Ogundipe, & Olowokudejo, 2012). The structure of the calyx (Figure 01J) also conformed to that expected in H. rosa-sinensis, that is united near to its half-length, oblong-lanceolate in shape, green in colour and 2.1 ± 0.2 cm in length. Each flower is 5 to7 cm in length and has five free petals as reported by El Sayed et al. (2012). And the number of stigmas is five, as reported by Salamah et al. (2018), as well as Naskar and Mandal (2014) (see Figure

Limitations of Barcoding and Revisiting Morphology
The difficulty in identifying M. arboreus lies mainly in the lack of sequences of this species in the database. However, also contributing to the challenge is the lack of agreement on whether they are separate species or sub-species, the name M. arboreus variety penduliflorus is also being used (Turner & Mendenhall, 1993). Besides, occasional hybridisation between M. arboreus and M. penduliflorus is likely (Turner & Mendenhall, 1993), exacerbating the confusion between the two species. The clustering of H. sabdariffa with H. mechowii in three of the loci could be because there is a possibility that H. mechowii is the primitive form of H. sabdariffa (Edmonds, 1991). The ambiguous identification of H. rosa-sinesis, prompted us to make further morphological comparisons. The H. rosa-sinensis leaf morphology (Figure 01K), did not correspond to the leaf morphology of the white-flowered H. arnottianus which was described by Bhat (1995) to be elliptic, with an apex and base which is obtuse and an entire margin. The white petal colour found in our samples is not the reported colour of flowers of H. clayi nor H. kokio (Native Plants of Hawaii, n.d.). Unlike the leaves of the H. rosa-sinensis samples, leaves of H. clayi are smooth, or occasionally toothed near the tip (Native Plants of Haiwaii, n.d.). However, with its hybrid origins, H. rosa-sinensis may be a composite of characters from different ancestors, making it challenging to identify with certainty.
DNA based species identification in this study was not consistent or clear-cut. BLAST analysis of trnH-psbA and morphology-based identification was consistent; however, the tree topology showed ambiguities. ITS1 and matK identified all three species correctly to genus level, though trnL-F could not identify the M. arboreus even to genus level. In H. rosa-sinensis and H. sabdariffa the inconsistencies in identification may be due to their hybrid or evolutionary origins. A different problem exists in identifying the M. arboreus, that is, an incomplete database, combined with different taxonomist having different preferences in the naming of the species. While problems exist, DNA barcoding still has a role in identification. It directed us to review carefully related species and look for morphological characters which could negate or confirm the identification. It highlighted taxons that may be hybrids. And it also directed attention to species whose naming needs to be reviewed by taxonomist. In earth populated by some 391,000 species of vascular plants, this is no small contribution. Additionally, it is useful in cases which do not require species-level resolution, for example, knowing that food or drink contain something other than what is on the label is sufficient warning of danger. The importance of increased sampling within and across all species as well as geographical regions cannot be overstated. Sequence data analysis methods should also be explored to obtain ways which are not impacted by say non-homogeneity of sequences.
