Phylogeny of Cettiidae based on species tree analysis. Majority rule (50%) consensus tree, based on nuclear ODC, myoglobin and GAPDH and mitochondrial cytochrome b, inferred by *BEAST. All available sequences were included; individuals traditionally classified as the same subspecies were grouped a priori, but were not predefined as belonging to the same species; all loci had independent substitution models; and a relaxed clock prior was applied ("Subspecies jModelTest relaxed"). Generic affinity according to traditional taxonomy  is indicated by different colour shadings. Labelled bars denote clades discussed in text. The three species for which only cytochrome b is available are in red. Values in parentheses after names are the number of individuals included. Posterior probabilities (PPs) are indicated at the nodes; * means PP 1.00; PPs < 0.95 are in grey font; PPs in parentheses are from an analysis where subspecies of a species were predefined as being conspecific, all else being equal ("jModelTest relaxed"), when PPs deviate by > 0.10.
