Cluster dendrogram illustrating patterns of co-occurrence between faunal taxa. Taxa closer together in the tree (a short distance from the nodes to their splitting point) were found together more often. The dendrogram was created using hierarchical clustering of the raw distribution data. Mosquito species are in boldface and the scale bar gives the dissimilarity along the edges of the dendrogram. Dissimilarity between two species was calculated as one minus the empirical Pearson correlation coefficient with 0 representing perfect positive correlation, 1 no correlation and 2 perfect negative correlation
