Bayesian inference phylogenetic tree for Bulinus spp. based on cox1 gene sequences. Specimens are given with locality information as to country of origin and localities in some cases. The DNA preparation numbers are provided. Crater lake names are provided and the two specific clades of B. forskalii (Clade 1) and B. tropicus (Clade 2) are highlighted with light grey boxes. Crater lake populations are represented at the end of the branch by red boxes, while regional and non-regional (= others) populations are demonstrated by green and grey boxes, respectively. The outgroup Indoplanorbis exustus is not shown. The tree has been partly graphically collapsed (for the full tree see Additional file 2: Figure S2). Bayesian posterior probabilities (pp) are given for deeper nodes (when pp ≥ 0.95). The scale-bar represents substitutions per site according to the model of sequence evolution. The number of individuals per haplotype is shown in parentheses for the two specific clades (for details see Figs. 4, 5)
