  • a Average distances based on uncorrected P values with associated standard deviations.

  • b D values within individuals homozygous for the 2La (within a/a, excluding A. merus) and the 2L+ (within +/+) inversion.

  • c D values within individuals homozygous for the 2La (within a/a, excluding A. merus) and the 2L+ (within +/+) inversion.

  • d D values between 2La/a and 2L+/+ individuals.

  • e D values of A. merus from 2La/a carriers (A. gambiae 2La/a and A. arabiensis).

  • f D values of A. merus from all 2L+/+ carriers.

  • g D values of A. merus from A. gambiae 2L+/+.
