  • a A4(40°52′21″N, 73°44′03″W) and K2 (41°14′04″N, 72°15′57″W) were two representative stations located in the western and eastern sections of the Sound, respectively. AP (41°18′55″N, 72°38′11″W) was located at the Avery Point campus of the University of Connecticut, off the east end of Long Island Sound, near K2. One taxon may contain multiple genotypes.
