Phylogenetic placement of L. albipes. Four-fold degenerate sites were used to reconstruct the phylogeny of eight sequenced insect genomes. Numbers at the nodes represent divergence times estimated with the ‘mcmc’ package in PAML . L. albipes and A. mellifera diverged approximately 70 million years ago.
