  1. *Whole genome sequences downloaded from GenBank. Bootstrapped mean of % sequences with msats = the mean % of sequences with microsatellites calculated via bootstrapping (10000 iterations). Bootstrapped mean of total msat = the mean total count of microsatellites calculated via bootstrapping (10000 iterations). Bca CI: Bias corrected confidence interval calculated from 10000 bootstraps. H. magnipapillata and M. alcicornis have fast mutation rates (superscript f), the remainder of the species has slow mutation rates (superscript s). Symbiotic state is indicated by Y = yes and N = no. The symbiotic species have lower numbers of sequences with microsatellites+, percent of sequences with microsatellites#, and a lower bound for the bootstrapped mean of total microsatellites^ (t-tests, p <0.05, equal variances not assumed). Neither the total number of sequences not the mean raw sequence length differed between symbiotic and nonsymbiotic species (t-tests, p >0.05, equal variances not assumed).
