S refers to the number of observed segregating sites.

aAverage diversity is calculated from concatenated haplotypes from all loci in each category.

bNumbers in parentheses indicates the number of synonymous and noncoding positions.

cData previously reported in a survey of standard ZAL2, inverted ZAL2m and a region outside of the inversion polymorphism.
