The Bayesian tree of studied Polyommatus samples based on analysis of the cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI) gene. Numbers at nodes indicate Bayesian posterior probability. I, II and III are recovered haplogroups of the P. damonides species complex. Polyommatus shamil, phenotypically similar to P. australorossicus, but genetically distant, was used to root the tree.
