Fig. 2

Phylogeny of APC family transporters for sampled insects, representative aphids, and a nonherbivore outgroup. Taxa are color coded per the key, with pink branches denoting the slimfast gene expansion shared among aphidomorphs. Shaded regions indicate likely lineage-specific evolution for free-living aphids (gray boxes) and phylloxerids (yellow boxes). Asterisks indicate clades where paralogs occur in free-living aphidomorphs but are lacking in galling species
