WTT and DGH were supported by the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft. GTB was supported by the Melbourne International Research Scholarship (MIRS) and the Melbourne International Fee Remission Scholarship (MIFRS). Siu Fai Lee, Adam Williams, Tamar Sztal and Adrian Boey (CESAR, University of Melbourne, Australia) provided helpful discussion during the course of this project. We thank three anonymous reviewers for helpful comments, and Dusan Kordis and Jean-Nicolas Volff for identifying accession numbers for Bombyx and Tetraodon RTE elements respectively. This project was supported by The Australian Research Council (ARC) through its funding of the Special Research Centre CESAR (Centre for Environmental Stress and Adaptation Research), and the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft.
