Mitochondrial Cox1 Sequence Data Reliably Uncover Patterns of Insect Diversity But Suffer from High Lineage-Idiosyncratic Error Rates

Figure 1

Chronogram of cox1 sequences for the Australian diving beetle fauna based on ML branch lengths which were made ultrametric with a relaxed molecular clock.

Focal clades are Hydroporini (blue, polyphyletic); Neobidessodes (green) and Exocelina (orange). Three pink clades contain paraphyletic species. Dots denote speciation events as inferred from morphospecies identification or combined genetic and morphological data. Note: Multiple dots within the pink clades omitted for clarity.
