Table S1. Palythoa tuberculosa specimens examined in this study, their collection information, and Symbiodinium GenBank Accession Numbers. Note not all specimens had their ITS2 sequences acquired as no clear distinctions asides from the two major groupings shown in Fig. 1A were found.
Symbiotic dinoflagellates (genus Symbiodinium) shape the responses of their host reef organisms to environmental variability and climate change. To date, the biogeography of Symbiodinium has been investigated primarily through phylogenetic analyses of the ribosomal internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) region. Although the marker can approximate spe...


... However, because the psbA ncr region cannot be amplified across Symbiodiniaceae using a single set of primers, this marker is suboptimal for some types of community-level analyses, such as assessing total community diversity or beta diversity metrics. Nevertheless, it would be appropriate to pair psbA ncr with other markers; i.e., to resolve additional diversity within established ITS2 lineages (Noda et al., 2017;Reimer et al., 2017); and also to use this marker to verify ITS2 sequence variants generated via amplicon sequencing Smith et al., 2020). ...
