Fig. 9

Maximum Likelihood tree inferred from the analysis of 28S rDNA sequences including 34 selected species of African Dactylogyridae. Values along branches indicate posterior probabilities and boostrap values resulting from Bayesian Inference (BI) and Maximum Likelihood (ML) analyses. Only values > 0.95 for BI and > 70% for ML are shown. The phylogenetic tree was rooted using three species belonging to the Anoplodiscidae (Anoplodiscus cirrusspiralis Roubal, Armitage & Rohde, 1983) and the Diplectanidae (Diplectanum blaiense Gupta & Khanna, 1974 and Laticola paralatesi (Nagibina, 1976) Yang, Kritsky, Sun, Zhang, Shi & Agrawal, 2006)
