Their MP "reference phylogeny" based on amino acid sequences, and determined to be the least likely to violate phylogenetic assumptions, recovered Myxophaga (1 exemplar; Sphaerius) and Adephaga (3 exemplars) as sister groups, these together sister to Polyphaga (19 exemplars).
The single myxophagan (Sphaerius) and the two Strepsiptera were recovered in various positions in the tree depending on the nucleotide-coding scheme and method of phylogenetic inference employed (whether ML, BI, or MP).
