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. 5

The South West Indian Ocean A. mellifera African ND2 haplotypes form a star-like group and diverge from the continental African and European lineages populations. The haplotype network is a minimal spanning tree based on 34 different haplotypes retrieved from sequencing 171 ND2 mtDNA from honey bees of the South West Indian Ocean (SWIO) islands, Africa, Europe. 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, Anjouan, Mohéli, 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
