Preliminary phylogenetic tree of Gephyromantis (Vatomantis) lomorina sp. n., based on Maximum Likelihood analysis of a 532 bp fragment of the mitochondrial 16S rRNA gene. Numbers at nodes indicate bootstrap values in percent (500 replicates, above) and posterior probabilities from a Bayesian Inference analysis (20 million generations, below), shown only if >50 % (bootstrap) or >90 % (posterior probabilities). Each specimen/species is followed by the corresponding GenBank accession number used in the alignment. Schematic drawings of femoral glands of all species in the subgenera Laurentomantis and Vatomantis as well as of G. klemmeri are shown to the right of the phylogeny, and coloured according to the subgenus to which they are assigned.
