Within and among clades genetic distances. Distribution of uncorrected 16S genetic distances among individuals of leaf-litter lizards in the genus Pholidobolus. We include four species of the northern Colombian Andes, and P. vertebralis near its type locality in Ecuador. Pairwise distances among individuals of the same clade are indicated with the same colour; pairwise distances among individuals from different clades are represented by different colours. Dots denote each of the calculated distances, whose distribution is summarised by Kernel density smooths.
