*LG, linkage group; Chr, probable chromosome based on fluorescent in situ hybridization data. Physical chromosome size was based on the relative size of chromosomes [48] and an estimated 300 Mb genome size. Total number of markers in each linkage group. §When two or more markers had 0% recombination, we selected a single marker to generate the maps. Calculated as the unadjusted map length divided by the number of intervals (mapped markers minus 1). The interval spacing reported under the total is 1,134.84 cM divided by 202 intervals.
