Simplified phylogenetic tree obtained with IQ-TREE using the DNA sequence dataset of Toussaint et al. (2014, 2015 as well as 2020 in preparation) plus the newly obtained sequences of Exocelina sugayai sp. nov. Non-relevant clades are collapsed to genus or other major clades. Numbers in nodes, ultrafast bootstrap / SH-like aLRT support.
