Phylogenetic relationships for all species of European Hydromantes. Relationships based on a molecular phylogeny found from combined mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequence data, with branch lengths proportional to nucleotide differences [28]. Observed patterns of foot allometry (Figure 2B) are denoted on the phylogeny, along with hypothesized evolutionary transitions found from maximum likelihood ancestral state reconstruction.
