Phylogenetic relationships of amniotes as inferred from analyses of the 248-gene dataset. (a) Bayesian consensus topology obtained from analyses of the amino-acid dataset (62,342 sites) under the CAT-GTR + G4 mixture model. (b) Bayesian consensus topology obtained from analyses of the complete nucleotide dataset (187,026 sites) under the CAT-GTR + G4 mixture model. The nodal values indicate the clade Bayesian posterior probability (PP). Statistical support values obtained with different methods, models and data partitions detailed in Table 1 are reported in boxes for turtles plus archosaurs. Note the relative incongruence between the two trees concerning the position of Python. All pictures are from Wikimedia Commons, except for Chelonoidis from Y. Chiari. Please note also that the taxonomy of Galapagos turtles being currently revised, the appropriate species name for the Chelonoidis specimen included here might be Chelonoidis sp.
