Phylogeny of the circumglobal seahorse lineage. The phylogenetic tree with the highest likelihood score reconstructed by means of likelihood ratcheting. The data matrix comprised five partitions: mitochondrial control region, cytochrome b and 16S rRNA, and nuclear S7 intron and Aldolase. Associations of lineages with biogeographic regions are indicated. Nodal support is indicated by three numbers; these represent bootstrap values from maximum likelihood searches, jackknife support from parsimony searches, and posterior probabilities from Bayesian Inference. Hyphens indicate clades that were not recovered using parsimony. White circles indicate divergence events that may have resulted from vicariance events. Letters within these correspond to those in Table 2.
