(A–L) Variation of pigmentation categories as measured in a single specified organ. —M. Variation of pigmentation categories as measured considering the pigmentation categories of all organs among the 32 species. Circles at nodes provide the contribution of nodes to trait diversity, scale are given below each tree. The larger the circle, the larger the trait diversity in that node. Results of the permutation tests are given at the bottom of each tree: SN, single-node skewness test; FN, few-nodes skewness test; Ro, root ⁄ tips skewness test (two sided). Total quadratic entropy (TQE) represents the overall value of trait diversity, the higher the TQE, the higher the diversity of pigmentation categories in a given organ. See Fig. 1 for node labels. [Correction added on 8 October 2012, after first online publication: Fig. 6 was replaced with the correct test values for section K].
