Evolution of miniaturization in the rasborine clade A. Tracing the evolution of miniaturization on the ML topology (one of three ML topologies; choice of topology does not alter conclusions) of the rasborine data set (clade A). The state 'miniature' is given in red colour, whereas the state 'non-miniature' is given in black. Results from both, unweighted parsimony and ML (selected nodes only), are shown. Significant ML reconstructions are indicated with an asterisk. Photographs of selected miniature rasborines mentioned in the text are given behind taxon names: Rasbora kalbarensis, Horadandia atukorali, Boraras brigittae, Danionella sp 'Myanmar', Microrasbora kubotai, Chela dadiburjori, 'Danio' erythromicron, Paedocypris progenetica, Sundadanio axelrodi.
