Fig. 2.

Phylogenetic relationships of species of Zhangixalus, Leptomantis and Rhacophorus based on four mitochondrial genes (12S rRNA, tRNAVal, 16S rRNA and Cyt b) and three nuclear DNA genes (RAG-1, RHOD, TYR). Different colors correspond to three clades: Clade A (blue), Clade B (red), Clade C (green). Numbers beside the nodes are given as Bayesian posterior probabilities (BPP) and bootstrap proportions (BSP) for maximum likelihood analyses. Photographs of R. laoshan and Z. yinggelingensis are used from Mo et al. (2008) and Chou et al. (2007), respectively.
