Phylogenetic analysis of Benedenia humboldti n. sp. and related species. ‛Total evidenceʼ phylogenetic tree obtained from ML analysis based on a concatenated alignment of amino acids of the protein-coding genes present in the mitochondrial genome of representatives of the subclass Monopisthocotylea. In the analysis, three species of the subclass Polyopisthocotylea were used as the outgroup. Numbers at the branches represent bootstrap values. The optimal molecular evolution model estimated with ProtTest as implemented in NOVOPlasty was the mtZOA+F+I+G4 model; this model was also found to be optimal and applied to two different partitions (partition 1: atp6 + nad1 + nad3 + nad4l + nad2, partition 2: cob + cox1 + cox2)
