Maximum likelihood (ML) trees varied depending on the substitution model used for the concatenate analysis, whereas the separate model analyses consistently supported tree 1. The log-likelihood of the ML tree is given in angled brackets, and the differences in the log-likelihoods of alternative trees from that of the ML tree ± 1 standard error were estimated using the formula of Kishino and Hasegawa [28]. Numbering of the trees corresponds to that shown in Figure 1. KH and wSH denote P values derived using by the test of Kishino and Hasegawa [28] and the weighted test of Shimodaira and Hasegawa [27], respectively, calculated by the CONSEL program [47]. AIC, the Akaike Information Criterion [29]; #p, number of parameters of the model.
