The homoplastic presence of claviform setae in Brachypelma and Theraphosa was unexpected, as representatives of these two genera have already been reported as possessing a stridulatory apparatus (Pocock 1901; Gerschman & Schiapelli 1966), but were never previously examined under SEM.
Stephomyia mina is the basal clade of genus, all remain species are grouped by two homoplastic synapomorphies: male cerci as long as large (13) and two lateral papillae on each side of the spatula (33).
After exclusion of these regions encompassing recombination, and homoplastic sites (136 SNPs, identified by using PAUP 4.0), 4,887 core genome SNP loci were left to be included in the analysis.
Due to the triple duplicates in HDFS keeping per block of a file in quadruplicate (every block with one original and triple copies), even though the files are homoplastic (only a few blocks are different), HDFS still writes triple copies per block of every file.
[19.] Nwokoye C O, Nwuba L A and J E Eyo Induced propagation of African clariidae catfish, (Heterobranchus bidorsalis) using synthetic and homoplastic hormones.
He regarded Asyndetus as being closer related to Diaphorus, while Cryptophleps and Phasmaphleps as belonging to the same lineage of Chrysotus, assuming that modifications in wing venation resulted from homoplastic evolution.
Notably, Salvini-Plawen himself states "the available characters are extremely homoplastic and that homology decisions are far too uncertain to accept the resulting trees as reflections of the phylogeny of the Solenogastres." Therefore, studies of entire internal hard parts are desirable to provide additional characters to evaluate solenogaster evolution.
Despite the similarity of the genital kidney to that of sirenids, the pelvic kidney of the Rhyacotritonidae is most similar to that of the Cryptobranchidae and the Hynobiidae (i.e., collecting ducts that communicate individually with the cranial portion of the cloaca), a condition that could be considered homoplastic in the context of our current understanding of salamander phylogeny.
Two unique derived characters included in the analysis are shared by both species of Aleixus, one non-homoplastic and one homoplastic (Fig.
He successfully transplanted vessels using different methods--autoplastic, homoplastic and heteroplastic, using either fresh vessels or ones that he had preserved in cold storage for up to 3 months (Carrel 1912).
