Data from: Mito-nuclear discordance at a mimicry color transition zone in bumble bee Bombus melanopygus
Data supporting the conclusions from “Mito-nuclear discordance at a mimicry color transition zone in bumble bee Bombus melanopygus." This study amassed specimen phenotype data to infer patterns of color distribution over the last one hundred years in this mimicry zone, examined population genetics among the mimicry forms across the tranisstion zone of B. melanopygus by comparing sequences from mitochondrial COI barcode sequences, color-controlling loci, and the rest of the genome. These data suggest the two lineages were historically isolated, acquired fixed color differences, and then came into secondary contact with ongoing gene flow. However, the transition zone exhibits asymmetries: COI haplotypes transition further south than the color pattern and nuclear transition zone, and both patterns transition over shorter distances in the south.
