Lineage through time plots (LTT-plot). The diversification of lineages (y-axis; cumulative number of lineages) through time (x-axis; relative time estimates) is plotted in five different ways according to the delimitation of evolutionary lineages: A: 3.2% threshold value partition. B: Automatic Barcoding Gap Detection (ABGD) partition. C: Statistical Parsimony (SP) partition. D: General Mixed Yule-Coalescent single (GMYCs) partition. E: General Mixed Yule-Coalescent multiple (GMYCm) partition.
