Figure 2

A partial view of the most-parsimonious tree based on the analysis of the complete data set and the results of the sensitivity analysis showing the relationships of the outgroups, and the genera Pulvinites , Malleus , and Pteria. The single most-parsimonious topology (L = 6027, CI = 0.56, RI = 0.86) of the complete data set resulting from the combined analysis of the 18S, 28S, 16S, and H3 data under uniform weighting. Numbers at the nodes denoted node numbers; numbers above the branches indicate jackknife/Bremer support values. The results of the sensitivity analysis are summarized below the branches as binary plots with filled shapes denoting clade presence and open shapes denoting clade absence. Circles and squares indicate whether the analyses were performed with or without taking the affine gap costs into account respectively. The tables below describe specific parameter combination used for each analysis listing the costs in the following order: "indel/transversion/transition" or "gap opening/(gap extension)/transition/transversion." Shell icons denote type species.
