Table 4 Percent pairwise genetic distances between Acanthocotyle spp. for LSU rRNA gene (under the diagonal) and the mitochondrial cox1 gene (above the diagonal)

From: Two new species of Acanthocotyle Monticelli, 1888 (Monogenea: Acanthocotylidae), parasites of two deep-sea skates (Elasmobranchii: Rajiformes) in the South-East Pacific

  A. atacamensis (n = 6) A. imo (n = 5) A. gurgesiella (n = 2)
A. atacamensis (n = 4) 14.3–15.6 18.8–19.5
A. imo (n = 3) 0.50 21.5–21.8
A. gurgesiella (n = 2) 2.24–2.74 1.75–2.24
A. urolophi (n = 1) 2.99 2.74 3.24–3.74
  1. Notes: Comparisons are based on 409 bp (LSU rRNA gene) and 307 bp (cox1). Numbers in parentheses indicate the number of sequences used for the comparisons (LSU rRNA gene, first column; cox1, first line)
