Which human Ferlins most closely resemble Dysferlin?

The Ferlins can be grouped into two sub-families with three proteins each, which more closely resemble each other than they do with members of the other sub-family. One group contains Dysferlin, Myoferlin, and Fer1L5; the other contains Otoferlin, Fer1L4, and Fer1L6. An easy way to remember the grouping is that all the odd numbers (Fer1L1, Fer1L3, Fer1L5), and all the even numbers (Fer1L2, Fer1L4, Fer1L6) group together. So, Myoferlin and Fer1L5 are the two human Ferlins which most closely resemble Dysferlin.
