[45], [46], **species misidentified in [47], ***re-analysed sample from [42].

The type of SWS1 single cones (VS or UVS) is interpreted from opsin amino acid (aa) identities. The paleognathous Struthioniformes and Casuariformes are assumed to be VS based on MSP data from ostrich Strutio camelus[48] and aa sequence similarity. Bold letters mark spectral tuning amino acid positions 86, 90 and 93. Number of birds sequenced is indicated after species names.
