  1. Notes: “Y” indicates that a gene block occurs in the corresponding pattern, whereas “–” indicates that the a gene block is broken up. “P” indicates that the gene block is present in all species exhibiting the pattern 1a, except for trematodes. “Y” with a superscript letter indicates the existence of minor exceptions in the gene block, wherein “Ya” denotes Benedenia seriolae; “Yb” denotes Trichobilharzia regenti, Schistosoma mekongi and Schistosoma japonicum; and “Yd” denotes Brachycladium goliath
