Data from: The origins of novelty from within the confines of homology: the developmental evolution of the digging tibia of dung beetles

David Linz, Hu Yonggang & Armin Moczek
Understanding the origin of novel complex traits is among the most fundamental goals in evolutionary biology. The most widely used definition of novelty in evolution assumes the absence of homology, yet where homology ends and novelty begins is increasingly difficult to parse as evo devo continuously revises our understanding of what constitutes homology. Here, we executed a case study to explore the earliest stages of innovation by examining the tibial teeth of tunneling dung beetles....
