Skew across the Caenorhabditis genus. Summary of skew results placed on the Caenorhabditis phylogeny. All eight species tested exhibited skew for integrated (Is) arrays, extrachromosomal (Ex) arrays, or both (blue names and circles). Blue lines indicate inferred ancestral, evolutionary lineages with skew. Other species and clades within the Caenorhabditis are likely to have skew but are untested (gray text and triangles; numbers indicate number of known species within). Phylogeny adapted from12,70 with the position of C. sp 33 placed next to C. remanei based on ITS2 sequence (unpublished data).
