  1. Years divergent from the reference taxon were estimated in millions of years from a). Light et al. [23] and b) Smith et al. [24]. Contigs are the number of the 1,107 queries that assembled contigs in aTRAM. The final column has the number of contigs that passed a Reciprocal best-BLAST test against the entire Pediculus humanus protein coding genome.
