Phylogeny of the continental and Taiwanese Brachypteryx montana taxa, with B. m. montana, B. leucophris carolinae and B. hyperythra as outgroups. Numbers at nodes are posterior probabilities from different analyses, in this order: BEAST analysis of the mitochondrial cytochrome b; BEAST analysis of the concatenated mitochondrial cytochrome b and ND2 and nuclear myoglobin and ODC introns analysed in four partitions; *BEAST species tree analysis of the complete dataset. Time-calibrated based on a 2.1%/million years cytochrome b rate. Inset: B. m. cruralis, adult male, Doi Inthanon, Thailand, 8 July 2013 (Devon Pike; Wikimedia Commons, CC BY 3.0)
