Has anyone looked at the data of Goloboff et al. 2009 for the "worm"
placements (mentioned on taxacom today)?
Goloboff PA, Catalano SA, Mirande JM, Szumik CA, Arias JS, Källersjö M,
Farris JS 2009. Phylogenetic analysis of 73 060 taxa corroborates major
eukaryotic groups. Cladistics 25: 211-230.
The analysis took ~ 2.5 months processor-time and included 942
annelids. Annelida and Mollusca are not shown in their figure (at the
scale given). But they say their tree has "Scaphopoda and Bivalvia as
successive sister groups of several other invertebrate phyla, and the
rest of the molluscan classes forming a monophyletic group."
"The full data set and the trees found (in TNT format), as
well as the C scripts used to download GenBank
sequences, can be obtained from http://www.zmuc.dk/
Is anyone knowing TNT keen to have a look & report?
