Two new fish species of the subfamily Anthiinae (Perciformes, Serranidae) from the Marquesas.
Two new species of anthiine fishes are described from the Marquesas Islands, French Polynesia. Plectranthias flammeus was found at depths from 20-45 m and is characterized by dorsal rays X, 14 or 15,
Shore fishes of the Marquesas Islands, an updated checklist with new records and new percentage of endemic species
TLDR
The expedition combined extensive col-lections and visual censuses of the shore fish fauna of the Marquesas Islands with a total of 74 species added as new records, ranking as the third highest region of endemism for coral reef fishes in the Indo-Pacific.
A DNA barcode reference library of French Polynesian shore fishes
TLDR
This dataset is a DNA barcode reference library for at least 540 species of shore fishes collected over 10 years at 154 sites across the four volcanic archipelagos of French Polynesia, one of the most comprehensive DNA barcoding efforts for a vertebrate fauna to date.
Disentangling the taxonomy of the subfamily Rasborinae (Cypriniformes, Danionidae) in Sundaland using DNA barcodes
TLDR
A DNA barcode reference library of the Rasborinae in Sundaland is established to examine species boundaries and range distributions through DNA-based species delimitation methods and indicates that Rasborinee species are defined by distinct molecular lineages that are captured by species delimiting methods.
Revisiting species boundaries and distribution ranges of Nemacheilus spp. (Cypriniformes: Nemacheilidae) and Rasbora spp. (Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae) in Java, Bali and Lombok through DNA barcodes:
TLDR
Mitochondrial sequences argue that most species range distributions currently reported in the literature are inflated due to erroneous population assignments to the species level, and further highlight the sensitive conservation status of most Rasbora and Nemacheilus species on the islands of Java, Bali and Lombok.
When endemic coral-reef fish species serve as models: endemic mimicry patterns in the Marquesas Islands.
TLDR
This discovery adds a new line of evidence to the uniqueness of the Marquesas Islands, which not only host a high number of endemic reef-fish species, but also endemic mimicry patterns.
Population expansions dominate demographic histories of endemic and widespread Pacific reef fishes
TLDR
It is shown for the first time that the demographic histories of endemic and widespread reef fish are not distinctly different and it is suggested that a number of processes drive endemism.
Endemic and widespread coral reef fishes have similar mitochondrial genetic diversity
TLDR
Surprisingly, haplotype and nucleotide diversity did not differ significantly between endemic and widespread species, suggesting that mitochondrial genetic diversity of many endemic reef fish species may not either limit range size or be a source of vulnerability.
A new species of Indo-Pacific fish, Canthigaster criobe , with comments on other Canthigaster (Tetraodontiformes: Tetraodontidae) at the Gambier Archipelago
TLDR
A new species of the tetraodontid fish genus Canthigaster was discovered during a recent expedition to the Gambier Archipelago, French Polynesia, and is the only known species of CanthIGaster having 12–14 brown stripes along the body.
