Delimitation of species

Field sampling and examination of museum specimens during the initial part of this study helped us identify specific characters for diagnosis of morpho-species. These characters were used in the field during our consecutive sampling to identify morpho-species. Morphological characters are thus distinct and used in the delimitation of the species. Molecular data was used to understand the evolutionary relationships of the species and their distinctiveness.
