Noturus: Phylogram recovered from the maximum parsimony analysis of cytochrome b sequences.
Hardman, M. 2004. The phylogenetic relationships among Noturus catfishes (Siluriformes: Ictaluridae) as inferred from mitochondrial gene cytochrome b and nuclear recombination activating gene 2. Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution, 30: 395-408.



Left. Strict consensus of 96 trees resulting from maximum parsimony analysis of the ictalurid cytochrome b alignment. Noturus stanauli and N. crypticus are highlighted with a box. The most recent common ancestor of the Noturus hildebrandi species clade is marked with a black dot. Only relationships among Noturus species are shown. Numbers at nodes report percent recovery in bootstrap pseudoreplicate analysis.
Right. Fifty percent majority rule consensus phylogram resulting from Bayesian analysis of the ictalurid cytochrome b alignment. Only relationships among Noturus species are shown. Noturus stanauli and N. crypticus are highlighted with a box. The most recent common ancestor of the Noturus hildebrandi species clade is marked with a black dot. Asterisks at nodes indicate a 95% or greater Bayesian posterior probability.
