Figure S1. Population-lineages diagnosed within the four described species using the generalized mixed Yule-coalescent algorithm. Connected red branches indicate haplotypes contained within a single diagnosed population. Results varied considerably depending on the particular tree used (e.g., all sequences, haplotypes only, A. strepitans-N. sericea only) but multiple lineages were always detected within the four described species.
