'LEA' = Combined morphological and molecular supertree of Liu et al. ([29]; their Figure 1); 'LEA+P 1:1' = 1:1 equally weighted supertree following application of protocol to the LEA references (50% majority rule consensus; not shown); 'LEA+P 4:1' = 4: 1 upweighted supertree following application of protocol to the LEA references (50% majority rule consensus; Figure 2); 'Full ST' = extended analysis supertree, based on an updated set of references (50% majority rule consensus; Figure 1); 'MEA' = molecular topology of Murphy et al. ([17] their Figure 1); 'GEA' = morphological and molecular topology of Gatesy et al. ([11]; their Figure 4).
