Appendix Figure 2. Phylogenetic tree constructed on the partial sequence of intergenic spacer region 1 (IGS)1-5.8S-IGSII region. The tree was computed with PAUP*4 (24) (heuristic search, stepwise addition, random addition sequence, nearest neighbor interchange, 100 maximum trees). Numbers represent bootstrap values of 500 replicates. Sequence data contained a total of 770 characters (747 constant characters; 4 uninformative characters; 19 parsimony informative characters). Gaps were represented as missing data. Each character was treated as an independent, unordered, multiple character of equal weight.
