Bayesian analysis of 40 morphological characters with posterior probabilities and Garli maximum likelihood bootstrap values near each branch with 18 Phlaeopterus species and 1 Unamis and 4 Lesteva outgroup species. Topology is a Bayesian 50% majority rule consensus phylogram. Taxon names in blue are species with maximum body sizes over 8 mm; names in red are species with maximum body sizes 6.5 to 7.9 mm with wide bodies; names in black are species with maximum body sizes below 5 mm; the name in green is for P. elongatus with a maximum body size of 6.4 mm, with an elongate body.
