Consensus phylogenetic tree for the 16S and 18S rRNA genes of Nosema/Vairimorpha. Maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference criteria produced identical consensus tree topologies. Support for each internal node is given as maximum likelihood bootstrap value/Bayesian posterior probability of partition. Branch lengths are drawn proportionally to the number of changes assigned to each branch. The notation following each species name indicates host (Hy = Hymenoptera, L = Lepidoptera, C = Crustacea, He = Hemiptera), life cycle (A = asexual, S = sexual) and rRNA gene order.
