ML phylogeny showing relationships of the newly sampled Boiga (in blue) and sequences of other available congeners. ML bootstrap support and BI posterior probability support = />75 or 0.75 is shown at each internal branch. Holotype of B. whitakeri (BNHS 3597) labelled in red. Inset image: head closeups of the respective samples in life or freshly roadkill specimen (BNHS 3617). Outgroups are pruned from this tree.
