Molecular phylogeny of Hoplitis

Recently, a molecular phylogeny of the genus Hoplitis has been published including 23 out of the 27 currently recognized subgenera (Sedivy et al., Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society, 167, 28-42, 2013). Unfortunately, in figures 1 and 2 Hoplitis (Prionohoplitis) epeoliformis and Hoplitis (Alcidamea) acuticornis have been mixed. In fact, H. acuticornis is sister to all the other species of the Alcidamea group, whereas H. epeoliformis is sister to H. curvipes.
