Appendix 6. List of taxa used in this study with their Genbank accession numbers. An asterix after the name indicates that wingless for that species was sequenced from a different individual of the same species. A double asterisk indicates that the taxon was an outgroup. Collection localities are mentioned for all samples collected for the purpose of this study.
