Relative frequencies of pairwise genetic distances among octocoral and hexacoral mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences. A comparison of the distributions of uncorrected pairwise distances of DNA alignments of 509 sequences of octocoral mtMutS, 169 sequences of octocoral COI, 410 sequences of hexacoral COI, 224 sequences of hexacoral 18S and 145 sequences of octocoral 18S. Widths of each row correspond to the relative frequency of each category of pairwise distance. The scale bar (inset) indicates a relative frequency of 10%.
