Distributional maps showing the occurrence points (colored dots) and cumulative environmental suitability for platyfishes (a), northern swordtails (b), and southern swordtails (c). Cumulative suitabilities were obtained by using the raster calculator tool in ArcMap 10.2.2 using the logistic outputs of the niche model for each species as produced according to procedures described in the methods. The resulting maps demonstrate where the environmental is not suitable for any species (black) to where the environmental is suitable for the greatest number of species of the clade (species-specific colors in panels a-c)
