  1. For each species for which at least one mt genome sequence was obtained in this study (either complete or largely complete), the respective family, and the provenance of the specimen(s) used for the sequencing (columns ‘Country’, ‘Latitude’, ‘Longitude’) are indicated, as well as the respective sexual system. For each mtDNA sequenced, its type is specified: non-DUI., mtDNA of dioecious or hermaphroditic species with no evidence of DUI presence or secondary loss; F and M, female- and male-transmitted mtDNAs of dioecious DUI species, respectively. The only available mtDNA of Pseudunio auricularius, a dioecious species for which no evidence of DUI has been produced yet (no M mtDNA sequence available yet), which carries an F-orf, has been considered as F for simplicity
