Figure 7

A strict consensus of the 11 most parsimonious tree derived from maximum parsimony (MP) analysis of 53 morphological characters. These morphological characters are applicable to the metamorphosed females only (71 characters used in Pietsch and Orr [33] minus 18 characters that are supposedly show reductive or simplified states; for details see text). The 11 MP trees had a total length of 100, a consistency index of 0.610, and a retention index of 0.835.
