  1. Summative representation of clades shown in Fig. 4, showing clades with number of sequences in parentheses, the average percent similarity, average uncorrected p-distance with range in parentheses, average base pair difference with range in parentheses, and percent parsimony informative sites, all compared to the two sequences as shown in Fig. 4 of Karyolysus (syn. Hepatozoon) paradoxa from Varanus albigularis albigularis. Note that only the known Karyolysus species have been used from the Karyolysus clade
