Tabulations done with DnaSP 5.1. Abbreviations: n, total number of alleles sequenced; subset, classes of sites within cDNA; bp, base pairs (per subset); Σ, all substitution sites; ss, synonymous sites; nss, nonsynonymous sites; S, number of segregating sites; #var, number of variants; π, nucleotide diversity per bp; k, average difference of nucleotides, pairwise among sequences (per whole gene); θ, 4Neμ, estimated from S, where Ne is effective population size and μ is mutation rate; min recs, minimum recombinations among sequences, estimated by the four-gamete test [25]; cyto, cytosol; mito, mitochondrial. Mean numbers of pairwise nucleotide differences between species for whole mito form: all sites 52.50, ss sites 47.49, nss sites 5.02. No sites are fixed for different substitutions between the two species.
