From: Large-scale mitochondrial DNA analysis of native honey bee Apis mellifera populations reveals a new African subgroup private to the South West Indian Ocean islands

Fig. 3

The sub-structure within 40 COI-COII P0Q derived haplotypes shows that the insular A. mellifera African AI sub-lineage in the South West Indian Ocean differs from continental populations. The haplotype network is a minimal spanning tree based on 32 different haplotypes retrieved from sequencing 647 COI-COII of mtDNA from honey bees of the South West Indian Ocean islands, Africa, Europe and 8 African reference sequences from the GenBank. Maps near the sub-network indicate country/island from which sequences were obtained here using online tool. Seychelles1: Mahé, Praslin and La Digue. Comoros2: Grande Comore, Mohéli, Anjouan, and Mayotte. Africa3: Egypt, Senegal, Chad, Central African Republic, São Tomé, Gabon, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and South Africa. Europe4: Portugal, Spain, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Greece
