Maximum likelihood tree of Spirobranchus species inferred from concatenated gene/region sequence (cytb + ITS2 + 18S + 28S rRNA) obtained from the present study and from DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank (Table 1). The sequences obtained in the present study are highlighted in red. SH-aLRT/approximate Bayes support/ultrafast bootstrap support values of ≥ 80%, ≥ 0.95, ≥ 95%, respectively are given beside the respective nodes. “Red circles at nodes indicate triple high support values of SH-aLRT ≥ 80%, approximate Bayes support ≥ 0.95, and ultrafast bootstrap support ≥ 95%. The scale bar represents the number of substitutions per site. Sequences of Galeolaria hystrix Mörch, 1863 and Galeolaria gemineoa Halt, Kupriyanova, Cooper & Rouse, 2009 obtained from DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank were used for outgroup rooting.
