Splitstree analysis for concatenated nuclear DNA sequences (Cmos, ODC, R35, Rag1, Rag2; 3409 bp) of Trachemys. D 39071 and D 39077 are the samples of T. v. venusta s. l. from Acapulco occurring in the basal mitochondrial polytomy comprising all clades and subspecies of T. venusta except for T. v. cataspila. Symbol for the holotype of T. v. uhrigi with central black dot. The misplaced T. g. panamensis at the bottom could be an artifact because all differences from the other four T. g. panamensis are located within a single gene (ODC; Fritz et al. 2012, ENA accession number HE590494) and not randomly distributed across the five loci.
