|monophyletic American Carychium||0.00||0.00||0.00|
|monophyletic Asian Carychium||−14.07||17.24||17.66|
|monophyletic Alpine Zospeum||−157.41||85.25||85.81|
|monophyletic Dinaric Zospeum||−345.81||191.58||190.53|
Results of the model selection approach to test the monophyly of geographically closely distributed taxa. Hypotheses are ranked according to model fit. AICM = modified Akaike Information Criterion; BFPS = Bayes Factor based on path simulation sampling; BFSS = Bayes Factor based on stepping stone sampling. A ΔAICM >7 and a ln BF > 2.3 are seen as strong model support.
