[…] Mitochondrial COI and control region sequences were initially aligned in Sequencher (Gene Codes) and then realigned by eye, with minimal gap insertion. Phylogenetic trees were constructed in MEGA 5.05 using Maximum Likelihood parameters and the Tamura-Nei model of nucleotide substitution . Sequence divergences between COI sequences were calculated in MEGA 5.05, using Kimura 2 parameter distance criteria; the standard criteria used for distance estimation for COI sequences . […]
