What is the definition of "derived traits"?

Answer

A derived trait is a feature that appears in the most recent organism, but not in its ancestor as a result of mutation. That is, it is said to be present in an organism, but absent in the last known ancestor of the organism. The same is also the case for traits that may have been present in the predecessors, but absent in current organisms.
