Molecular systematics of the New World clingfish genus Gobiesox (Teleostei: Gobiesocidae) and the origin of a freshwater clade.
Phylogeography of Rhinichthys cataractae (Teleostei: Cyprinidae): pre‐glacial colonization across the Continental Divide and Pleistocene diversification within the Rio Grande drainage
Estimates of the timing of divergence within the R. cataractae species-group, combined with ancestral area-reconstruction methods, indicate a separation between the eastern and western lineages during the Pliocene to early-Pleistocene, with a direction of colonization from the west of the Continental Divide eastward.
Multi-locus phylogenetic analyses support the monophyly and the Miocene diversification of Iksookimia (Teleostei: Cypriniformes: Cobitidae)
These coalescent and concatenation-based phylogenetic analyses, utilizing seven unlinked nuclear-encoded genes, strongly supported Iksookimia as a monophyletic group, emphasizing the importance of multi-locus data in investigating complicated phylogenetic relationships.
Phylogeny and time scale of diversification in the fossil-rich Sunfishes and Black Basses (Teleostei: Percomorpha: Centrarchidae).
Small fishes crossed a large mountain range: Quaternary stream capture events and freshwater fishes on both sides of the Taebaek Mountains.
Results of the divergence time estimation indicate that ichthyofaunal transfers into the Osip River (and several neighboring rivers in East Sea slope) have occurred from the Han (Yellow Sea slopes) and Nakdong (Korea Strait slope) Rivers since the Late Pleistocene.

Gene tree and species tree reconstruction derived from mitochondrial and nuclear sequence data supports the exclusivity of K. brevifasciata and the existence of two highly distinct genetic lineages (eastern and western lineages) and future conservation efforts should consider these genetically distinct lineages as separate evolutionary entities.
Molecular Phylogenetics of the Clingfishes (Teleostei: Gobiesocidae)—Implications for Classification
The phylogenetic relationships among members of the family Gobiesocidae are investigated using both mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequence data to assess whether the alternative classification schemes are compatible with inferred evolutionary relationships.
Introgression and Species Delimitation in the Longear Sunfish Lepomis megalotis (Teleostei: Percomorpha: Centrarchidae).
The ddRAD phylogenomic analyses do not provide support for the current taxonomy that recognizes two species, L. megalotis and L. peltastes, in the Lepomis complex, but evidence from phylogenomics and phenotype warrants recognizing six relatively ancient evolutionary lineages in the complex.
Cobitis nalbanti, a new species of spined loach from South Korea, and redescription of Cobitis lutheri (Teleostei: Cobitidae).
Morphological analysis of C. lutheri shows that it is distinct in having a short obtuse snout, the suborbital spine reaching the center of the eye, the mandibular barbel reaching the anterior edge of the eyes, usually less than 12 dark brown blotches in the fourth Gambetta's zone, and two spots at the caudal-fin base.
