  • Close phylogenetic relationships among European and Asian lambeosaurine dinosaurs.

Keywords: Dinosaur; Lambeosaurinae; Cretaceous; Maastrichtian; Europe.


Fig. 1. Consensus tree of the Bayesian analysis, showing the phylogenetic relationships of Els Nerets specimens as basal Lambeosaurinae, close to Tsintaosaurus spinorhinus. The Bayesian analisis was conducted using the JC model, assuming equal rates of changes, running 1’000’000 analyses starting from four random trees. Stationarity was achieved with a standard deviation of split frequencies of 0.015. The matrix used for the analyses is an updated version of that of Prieto-Márquez & Gutarra (2016).
