Genus Thomomys cladogram. Cladogram of taxa in the Northern California study region (adapted from [20, 21]). Note that T. (M.) bottae canus, despite its species name, is more closely related to T. (M.) townsendii in the T. M. Townsendii clade than to the T. M. Bottae clade taxa. Note that the T. M. Bottae clade is presented as a soft polytomy, and support for internal nodes in the subgenus Thomomys is very low [20]
