Alignement and phylogenetic tree of 106 Lepidoptera

Charline Pinna, Florence Piron-Prunier & Marianne Elias
We used both published and de novo sequences from one mitochondrial gene and seven nuclear genes, representing a total length of 7433 bp to infer a molecular phylogeny for 106 lepidopteran species. Müllerian mimicry is a positive interspecific interaction, whereby co-occurring defended prey species share a common aposematic signal. In Lepidoptera, aposematic species typically harbour conspicuous opaque wing colour patterns with convergent optical properties among co-mimetic species. Surprisingly, some aposematic mimetic species have partially transparent...
