1mtDNA haplotype inferred from the median-joining network in Figure 2.

2Estimated sampling location origin of sample using the SAM.

3Estimated regional location using the SAM. Here, samples were grouped by region into locations that are either north and west of the Sanaga (locations shaded purple in Figure 1b) or south of the Sanaga River (locations shaded orange in Figure 1b).

4Point estimates of origins using the CAM. Point estimates are listed in decimal coordinates.

5Point coordinate estimates were grouped by region: 1) north and west of the Sanaga (North), 2) south of the Sanaga River in southern Cameroon (South) or 3) the transition zone near the confluence of the Sanaga and Mbam Rivers (Transition).

6Our estimate of subspecies designation based on CAM estimated origins and mtDNA haplotype.
