Figure 2

BI tree of the genus Stenodactylus inferred using 12S, 16S mtDNA and c- mos , RAG -2 nuclear gene fragments. Black circles on the nodes indicate posterior probability values above 0.95 in the Bayesian Inference analysis. Numbers next to the nodes indicate bootstrap support of the Maximum Likelihood analysis (only values above 70 are shown). Ages of the nodes estimated with BEAST are indicated with an arrow, with the corresponding age range in brackets. The tree was rooted using Hemidactylus frenatus. Numbers in square brackets next to specimens code refer to localities in Figure 1. Information on the samples included is shown in Additional file 1: Table S1. Species' pictures were not submitted to precise relative scaling.
