Data from: Diversification and phylogeographic structure in widespread Azteca plant-ants from the northern Neotropics

Elizabeth G. Pringle, Timothy C. Bonebrake, Santiago R. Ramírez, Deborah M. Gordon & Rodolfo Dirzo
The Neotropical myrmecophytic tree Cordia alliodora hosts symbiotic Azteca ants in most of its widespread range. The taxonomy of the genus Azteca is notoriously difficult, which has frequently obscured species identity in ecological studies. We used sequence data from one mitochondrial and four nuclear loci to infer phylogenetic relationships, patterns of geographic distribution, and timing of diversification for 181 colonies of Azteca from Mexico to Colombia. We identified at least eight lineages of C. alliodora-dwelling...
