Bayesian tree of Pristionchus species based on ribosomal protein genes. The phylogenetic relationships were reconstructed from concatenated ribosomal protein CDS by Bayesian inference using the MrBayes 3.2.1 software . The evolutionary model was set to GTR+I+G. The analysis was run for 150,000 generations, burn-in time was for 37,500 generations, sampling frequency was 1 in 100 generations. Koerneria sp. was included as the closest related genus to Pristionchus. The tree was rooted at midpoint. Numbers at nodes indicate posterior probabilities. Hermaphroditic and gonochoristic (male/female) species are marked. The geographic origins of the species are indicated.
