In this paper, partial DNA barcode of R.mira syn. R.magnifica a critically endangered holoparasitic plant from Maragusan Compostela Valley Province was provided using mitochondrial gene sequence matR. Partial matR sequences generated from 3 replicates of R.mira (syn.R.magnifica) showed very close genetic variability between Philippine endemic species R. speciosa and R. manillana as shown in phylogenetic tree using neighborjoining with bootstrap support and confirmed by pair-wise distance analysis.
