  1. Voucher numbers refer to specimens collected in the same area as the one used for the nucleic extraction, since most of the times the entire animal (or the entire collected piece of animal) was processed. A single asterisk refers to voucher numbers in the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University, and a double asterisk to those deposited in the Department of Zoology and Physical Anthropology, Universidad Complutense de Madrid. In all cases only one specimen was used for extraction, except for Metasiro americanus, which also had embryos in several developmental stages.
