Additional file 1:

ML trees with the consensus topology for the orthologous segments 1p to 5d. The probability of the state of the rDNA cluster is shown as a pie at each node. The absence of a cluster is indicated in yellow, the presence in a pericentromeric region in black and the presence in a distal region in red.
