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

Figure 2

Agreement and taxonomic accuracy of molecular clusters estimated with different thresholds of DNA sequence divergence and the GMYC algorithm.

Blue lines, agreement derived from clustering (percentage of clusters relative to number of morphological species used in the particular dataset), and orange lines, taxonomic accuracy of clusters (number of clusters containing all sequences of a named species and only those). (A) Full dataset and two modifications thereof (315 species: dashed lines; 260 species: dotted; 242 species: solid lines); (B) all Hydroporini; (C) Hydroporini: Sternopriscus; (D) Hydroporini: Tiporus; (E) Hydroporini: Megaporus; (F) Copelatinae: Exocelina, purple and green – agreement and taxonomic accuracy for the raw dataset, blue and orange – taxonomically revised dataset. Circles - agreement for GMYC entities, triangles – taxonomic accuracy of GMYC entities (in F, purple and green GMYC for taxonomically raw Exocelina dataset).
