  1. a Methylation-susceptible loci.
  2. b A methylation-susceptible loci was considered polymorphic when at least two individuals showed the non-methylated state.
  3. c % of the significant single-locus homogeneity tests (χ2) after multiple test correction with sequential combined probability test of Fisher [47]□. q-values are given between brackets providing the expected proportion of false positives.
  4. d Average Shannon's Diversity Index (±SD).
