Fig. 1.

Phylogenetic trees of the Tetragnathid spider species from Malaysia as inferred from (LEFT) COI gene analyzed by BI and ML and (RIGHT) 18S gene analyzed by BI and MP. Bootstrap values with 50% majority rule applied above branches while the BI posterior probability values are shown below branches.

Table II.-

Genetic pairwise distance (%) of the COI gene sequences among the 17 tetragnathid species [Leucauge (5 species), Mesida (2 species), Opadometa (2 species), Tetragnatha (5 species) and Tylorida (3 species)] plus the two outgroups (Larinioides cornutus and Gasteracantha cancriformis). The distances were calculated by using the Kimura-two-model (Kimura, 1980).
