Figure 5

Phylogenetic position of vetulicolians within Deuterostomia. Maximum parsimony analysis strict consensus of 65 cladograms (vetulicolians collapsed into a single terminal), based on character matrix in Additional file 3. Blue box encapsulates phylum Chordata; daggers and red branches represent extinct taxa known only from fossils. Parsimony-bootstrap values (above branches) and Bremer support (below) are shown for analyses including/excluding the non-vetulicolian fossil taxa.
