  1. The significance of the length difference between alternative hypotheses of relationships (H1 and H2) were evaluated using the Kishino-Hasegawa (KH) test under parsimony (MP) and maximum likelihood (ML), and the Wilcoxon signed-ranks test (Templeton). * = significant difference, P < 0.05. Other abbreviations: Ost, Ostreoidea; Pin, Pinnoidea; Pte, Pterioidea.
