Misconception of phylogenetic trees suggests common ancestors of all seed plants and the common ancestor of gnetophytes and pines. The outgroup is often thought of as the most similar to the common ancestor because there is only one branch (implying that no further branching has occurred since). In reality, there have been multiple evolutionary events leading the living representative. We must keep in mind that every living representative is equally related to the recent common ancestor on the phylogenetic tree.
