Data from: Molecular evidence for the paraphyly of Scolecophidia and its evolutionary implications

Aurélien Miralles, Julie Marin, Damien Markus, Anthony Herrel, Blair S. Hedges & Nicolas Vidal
The phylogenetic relationships between the three main clades of worm snakes remain controversial. This question is, however, crucial to elucidate the origin of the successful snake radiation, as these burrowing and miniaturized wormlike organisms represent the earliest branching clades among the snake tree. The present molecular phylogenetic study, intended to minimize the amount of missing data, provides fully resolved inter-subfamilial relationships among Typhlopidae. It also brings robust evidence that worm snakes (Scolecophidia) are paraphyletic, with...
