  1. ML trees were inferred from datasets varying in sparseness to assess the trade-off between taxon sampling and data sampling. Datasets ranged from species-rich/data-sparse (409 species represented by at least one of 10 loci) to species-limited/data-rich (17 species contributing at least 9 of 10 loci). The column representing the optimal dataset selected for additional analyses is indicated in bold. (‘--‘indicates loss of outgroup or ingroup species required to evaluate support).
