I have generated sequence data from 5 loci (16S rDNA,
18S rDNA, 28S rDNA, Cytochrome Oxidase II, and Histone
3 = 6113 characters) for 63 taxa. For parsimony analysis,
equally weighted gaps, transitions, and transversions
resulted in the minimal ILD score among data sets
for all parameters tested (0.0307) under POY. A more
thorough search with parameter values set to identity
resulted in a single topology (length = 8913, CI =
0.4490, RI = 0.5908).

Unfortunately, no morphology matrix exists for Mantodea.
A problem that will be addressed by fellow collaborators
