A dated molecular phylogeny of manta and devil rays (Mobulidae) based on mitogenome and nuclear sequences.

Abstract

Manta and devil rays are an iconic group of globally distributed pelagic filter feeders, yet their evolutionary history remains enigmatic. We employed next generation sequencing of mitogenomes for nine of the 11 recognized species and two outgroups; as well as additional Sanger sequencing of two mitochondrial and two nuclear genes in an extended taxon… (More)
