How to interpret min-hash values in phylogeny


I have generated pairwise min-hash values between 44 draft fungal genomes and am wanting to plot them into a network do display putative species and then correlate this with other methods to see if they all agree.

When generating the network I need to pick a cut off for edge values to show in the network but I am unsure how to interpret the min-hash values as a function of relatedness. It is my understanding that higher means more distant but what is a reasonable cut off value or how can I begin to determine what is?

Here is the table of pairwise min-hash values

The min-has values were generated with MashTree
