I just got back some sequence for the Douglas River (Daly system) today to
compare to those from the Gregory. They are pretty majorly different
genetically (based on two fish....) Tree is at under Craterocephalus.

I also added a couple rainbow sequences, seems like the inornatas on Cape York
haven't mixed with the local nigrans populations like those west of Darwin
appear to. Gunther will be pleased to know the Dawson River fish come out in
the fluvi-duboulayi clade rather than splendida.
