  1. Monophyly, as required by the phylogenetic species concept II, is shown as parsimony jackknife branch support. Genotypic clusters are labeled with their inferred genetic group and their estimated membership coefficient. Diagnosability to satisfy the phylogenetic species concept I was determined by PAA
