Phylogeny of 48 crabs and 1 Diogenidae species (Clibanarius infraspinatus) used for evolutionary analysis of mitochondrial genomes. a: The common ancestor of Bythograeidae; b: The branch of Segonzacia mesatlantica; c: The common ancestor of Gandalfus and Austinograea; d: The common ancestor of Gandalfus; e: The common ancestor of Austinograea; f: The branch of Gandalfus yunohana; g: The branch of Gandalfus puia; h: The branch of Austinograea alayseae; i: The branch of Austinograea rodriguezensis. Numbers on branches indicate posterior probability (BI).
