Outcome of the taxonomic reassessment for all 30 Muscidae taxa with monophyly issues and/or anomalous divergence values in the pre-assessment data set. Maximum pairwise intraspecific (max intra) and minimum pairwise interspecific (min inter) distances shown for pre-assessment (Pre) and post-reassessment (Post) data sets. Missing intraspecific distances in taxa represented by a single sequence denoted by ---, missing distance values caused by the absence of a taxon in the post-reassessment data set denoted by X.
