Accurate delimitation of a species’ geographic range is important for conservation planning and biogeography. Geographic range limits provide insights into the ecological and historical factors that influence species distributions (Gaston 1991; Brown et al. 1996), whereas the extent of occurrence of a taxon is a key component of IUCN criteria used for assessing the conservation status of species (IUCN 2001). Freshwater mussels (Unionoida) are an ancient group of palaeoheterodont bivalves… Expand
