PRELIMINARY PHYLOGENETIC HYPOTHESIS:

Strict consensus of two most parsimonious trees (length=39, CI=.718, RI=.800) for 15 pelagiid species with Bremer support and boostrap indices at each node. Selected characters that may be shared among taxa due to common ancestry are shown along the appropriate nodes.
