Figure S2 Split networks for each of the individual genes used in the study. A test of tree-likeness was carried out on each of the individual gene and only the 95% confidence network is shown, indicating only the statistically significant splits. Branch lengths are indicated by the scale bar of substitutions per site at the bottom left of each gene tree.
