  1. Notes: Data include the crater field region, geographical coordinates, altitude (obtained from GoogleEarth Pro 1.0.0.1), number of haplotypes, specimen code (used for the network analyses), species, DNA preparation number (prep. no.), specimen voucher (UGSB, University of Giessen Systematics and Biodiversity collection) and GenBank accession number. Bulinus specimens from Lake Kyaninga could not be amplified. Note that a few GenBank numbers of other authors are occurring in more than one locality because they represent same haplotypes. Locality information and geographical coordinates of GenBank sequences are provided as they were published
  2. aNumber of haplotypes and specimen codes are only given for specimens used in the network analyses
  3. bLakes that did not yield populations of Bulinus
  4. cCrater lake where currently no Bulinus were found but sequences on GenBank were available
