Voucher and Genbank information for Viburnum species include in the study, arranged according to major clades (Winkworth and Donoghue, 2005; Clement and Donoghue, 2011). Voucher specimen information includes collector, collector number (No.), and herbarium. Genbank numbers are reported for each gene region; missing data are indicated by a “-.” Herbaria acronyms are as follows: Missouri Botanical Garden (MO), Arnold Arboretum (A), Yale University (YU), New York Botanical Garden (MY), Field Museum (F), University of Washington (WTU), and Kew Royal Botanic Gardens (K). Accessions used in interspecies comparisons are indicated in bold, accesions marked by an asterisk indicate data used in Clement and Donoghue 2011, and accesions marked by a “†” are new to the study of Viburnum phylogeny.

Summary of interspecific comparisons for four Viburnum clades. The name of each clade is followed by the total number of species described in the group. For each clade, the number of species analyzed, the aligned sequence length, the number of variable characters, the number of unique sequences, and the maximum number of species that can be identified by the data (Max ID rate =Identical sequences/total number of species) are reported. Summary statistics of genetic distances using a Kimura 2-parameter (K2P) model include: minimum genetic distance (Min), maximum genetic distance (Max), mean interspecific distance (Mean) with standard deviation (SD), and the proportion of comparisons of genetic distances greater than 1% (>1%) and greater than 2% (>2%).
