Morphological Data

Available characters from the literature will be included, along with those discovered through original observation. To ensure consistent treatment and repeatability, all characters will be critically examined and scored from specimens, described using standard terminology agreed upon by PIs and collaborators, and documented with illustrations. Morphological data matrices will be compiled and edited using Nexus Data Editor and WinClada (Nixon 1999). Digital images documenting character states and data concerning the specimens they were observed in will be archived in the online specimen database
