Figure 3

The morphotypes arising in communities A, B and H. Morphotype 1 was the ancestral morphotype. All other morphotypes were unique to a particular marker moiety (LT or MT) and a single community (Table 3; Supplementary Table 2). (a) Morphotype 1 (ancestral morphotype present in all three communities). (b) Morphotype 2, from community A. (c, d). Morphotypes 3 and 4, respectively, from community B. (dh). Morphotypes 5 through 8, respectively, from community H. All morphotypes were streaked for isolation and were found to breed true; in the case of morphotype 5, the picture was taken before isolation.
