Mantophasmatodea (Heelwalkers): phylogeny

One of 8 most parsimonious trees (L = 1468, CI = 0.6158, RI = 0.7459) resulting from an equally weighted simultaneous parsimony analysis of 810 bp of COI and 483 bp of 16SrDNA from 28 haplotypes of mantophasmatodeans and 4 outgroup taxa conducted with PAUP (numbers above branches indicate bootstrap support; numbers below branches indicate Bremer support values). Insufficient outgroups were included to indicate sister group relationships for the order. From Klass et al. (2003).
