Maximum likelihood phylogeny for 28 terapontid species based on analysis of combined nuclear and mitochondrial DNA. All bootstrap values are based on 1000 pseudoreplicates. Outgroup species were pruned from the tree. Images are identified by initials of genus and species nearby in the tree. Taxon names are colour-coded according to macrohabitat associations identified in : red = marine, green = euryhaline, and black = freshwater. The node signifying invasion of Australasian freshwater habitat is indicated.
