Variability and properties of the markers used in Cyrtandra
psbA-trnH Cyrt2 Cyrt4
Length, excluding primers 388-403 314 291
Number of variable sites (number of indels) 5 (2) 19 21
Percent of variable sites, excluding indels 1.29 6.05 7.21
Percent of “ghost” haplotypes 11.1 0 10
Ramification index 0.5 0.66 0.61

“Ghost” alleles are intermediate alleles that were not recovered in any of the accessions sampled. The ramification index (I) was calculated as follows: I = 1 – (longest distance between two haplotypes/total length of the network).
