Multi-locus phylogeny of scops-owls (Strigidae: Otus). Phylogram (50% majority rule consensus tree) from a Bayesian Inference analysis of the dataset 2, including 12S, 16S, ATP6, COI, CYTB, ND2, ND3, KIAA, MYO2, RAG1, TGFB2, and TTN gene fragments. Asterisks denote posterior probabilities values: (*) 0.85–0.94, * 0.95–0.98, ** 0.99–1. Scale bar corresponds to 0.02 substitutions per site. Strix aluco was set as outgroups (not shown on the figure).
