Species Diversity of Shallow Water Zoanthids (Cnidaria: Anthozoa: Hexacorallia) in Florida
Maximum likelihood trees of (a) mitochondrial 16S ribosomal DNA sequences, (b) “long” alignment of mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI), (c) “short” alignment of COI, and (d) internal transcribed spacer of ribosomal DNA (ITS-rDNA) sequences. Novel sequences from specimens in this study represented in bold. Sequences/species names from previous studies are in regular font with species name, location, and GenBank accession numbers. Values at branches represent maximum likelihood (ML) and neighbor-joining (NJ) bootstrap probabilities, respectively. Atlantic/Pacific sister species groups are represented by dark dashed lines, groups for which resolution in the phylogenetic tree are weak by gray dashed lines. For specimen information see Table 1.
