Data from: Taxonomy in the phylogenomic era: Species boundaries and phylogenetic relationships among North American ants of the Crematogaster scutellaris group

Philip Ward & Bonnie Blaimer
We investigate the species-level taxonomy and evolutionary history of Nearctic ants in the Crematogaster scutellaris group (Hymenoptera: Formicidae), drawing on evidence from morphology and UCE (ultraconserved element) phylogenomics. The New World species in this group form a well supported clade that originated in the late Miocene (~7.3 Ma) and subsequently diverged into three major lineages: the coarctata clade (southwest Nearctic), the opaca clade (southwest Nearctic and northern Neotropics), and the lineolata clade (eastern Nearctic and...
