Two types of substitution saturation plots were generated. A1 to D1 is a plot of raw uncorrelated pairwise genetic distances versus TrN model-corrected genetic distances (1) (Philippe et al., 1994). A linear relationship indicates no substitution saturation whereas a curved line indicates evidence of saturation. A2 to D2 is a plot of substitutions (transversions and transitions) versus genetic distance (2) (Lydeard and Roe, 1997; Knudsen, et al., 2019). Here, transversions (tv) and transitions (ts) are colour coded as blue and red respectively. No indication of substitution saturation was found for 1st and 2nd codon positions, but the curved line at figure 1D indicates evidence of saturation on the 3rd codon position.
