Table S1. Haplotype frequencies of the COI mtDNA gene in nine populations of M. arion from Italy and eleven populations from Poland. S2. Haplotype frequencies of the EF-1α nuclear gene in nine populations of M. arion from Italy and eleven populations from Poland. S3. Genetic differentiation (pairwise FST main text and supplementary table s3) at the COI gene (listed above the diagonal) and for EF-1α (listed below the diagonal) among nine populations of M. arion in Italy and eleven populations of M. arion in Poland (for full names of the locations see Tab. 1). Any significant FST main text and supplementary table s3 values are given in bold.
