  3. b S = Acari superorder (A = Acariformes, P = Parasitiformes)
  4. c PCG = Protein coding genes
  5. d duplications of the control region were also considered
  6. e Ref = References; unpub = unpublished
  7. f GC- and AT-skew for the strand coding for cox1, calculated following [46]
  8. g for these species the largest non-coding region(s) was/were assumed to be the control region(s)
  9. h L. pallidum has a duplication of 16S-rRNA; in this table the largest 16S-rRNA gene is considered
  10. i only single copy genes were considered for protein coding gene length calculation of M. occidentalis
  11. jL. polyphemus belongs to the order of the Xiphosura within the class of the Merostomata
