This suggestion isn't much better than species specific but....

If you are in class Mammalia, the caseins certainly mutate at a 
rapid clip.  There are (ca.) 37 entries in PIR last time I checked.
These include a number of different types of caseins, related only
name.  However, one could probably make a number of parallel trees 
of the class which would, if nothing else, make an interesting exercise.
