  • a Number of variable sites (with percentage in parentheses).

  • b Number of silent (S) vs. replacement (R) sites is listed.

  • c Number of autoapomorphic sites.

  • d Number of potentially synapomorphic sites. The two numbers in parentheses are the number of synapomorphic changes that support the A. gambiae 2La/a-A. arabiensis and A. gambiae 2La/a-A. arabiensis-A. merus clades, respectively.
