Fig. 1.

The different elytral forms in M. sexmaculatus.

Fig. 2.

Phylogenetic tree of the different elytral forms of Menochilus sexmaculatus based on mitochondrial genes (P1: COI and COII) obtained from RAxML and MrBayes. All M. sexmaculatus samples are labeled by steel-blue, the codes following sample name in this figure correspond to the code in Table I. Bootstrap support and posterior probabilities shown near the nodes.

Fig. 3.

Phylogenetic tree of the different elytral forms of Menochilus sexmaculatus based on nuclear genes (P2: CAD and H3) obtained from RAxML and MrBayes. All M. sexmaculatus samples are labeled by steel-blue, the codes following sample name in this figure correspond to the code in Table I. Bootstrap support and posterior probabilities are shown near the nodes.
