Figure 2

Maximum parsimony ancestral character state reconstruction of sexual systems in Notostraca. Sexual system is mapped onto the best scoring ML tree, and indicated by the colour of the square that precedes the taxon names. Blue = gonochoric, Orange = Androdioecy. STUs without squares preceding the taxon name do not have sexual system information or sexual system is equivocal. Bi-coloured squares indicate that both sexual systems are found. Branches are coloured according to MP reconstruction of ancestral sexual systems based on an unordered model with grey branches denoting an equivocal ancestral state assignment. The Leptestheria outgroup was removed after rooting and left uncoded for sexual system.
