Higher-level relationships among catfishes were investigated by parsimony, maximum likelihood and Bayesian analyses of two nuclear genes across 110 catfish species representing 36 of 37 families and Conorhynchos (family incertae sedis). Analysis of 3660 aligned base pairs from the rag1 and rag2 genes confirms monophyly of Siluriformes, of most siluriform families and of a number of multifamily groups, some recognized, some novel. South American Loricarioidei are recovered as the sistergroup to… Expand
Phylogenetics of the South American Catfish Family Pimelodidae (Teleostei: Siluriformes) using Nuclear and Mitochondrial Gene Sequences
TLDR
Results of Bayesian likelihood and maximum parsimony analyses of the combined sequence data consistently recover 40 monophyletic pimelodid clades above the species level, and the molecular data do not support monophyly of the genus Brachyplatystoma. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the Neoplecostominae and Hypoptopomatinae (Siluriformes: Loricariidae) using multiple genes.
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis is provided for representatives of more than one hundred species of the catfish family Loricariidae, including nearly all genera of the subfamilies Neoplecostominae and Hypoptopomatinae, showing the following set of interrelationships. Expand
A phylogenetic study of the African catfish family Mochokidae (Osteichthyes, Ostariophysi, Siluriformes), with a key to genera
TLDR
A hypothesis of phylogenetic relationships is presented for the African catfish family Mochokidae based on a maximum parsimony analysis of 93 morphological characters in 41 ingroup and 19 outgroup taxa and suggests that the sister group of the MoChokidae is a clade composed of the South American Doradidae plus Auchenipteridae, though support for the relationship is low.

Molecular Phylogeny of Catfishes ( Teleostei : Siluriformes ) in the Philippines Using the Mitochondrial Genes COI , Cyt b , 16 S rRNA , and the Nuclear Genes Rag 1 and Rag 2
In this study, three mitochondrial genes, namely, cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI), cytochrome b (cyt b), and 16S rRNA, and two nuclear genes, namely, recombination activating gene 1 (rag1) andExpand
Relationships among the Neotropical Candirus (Trichomycteridae, Siluriformes) and the evolution of parasitism based on analysis of mitochondrial and nuclear gene sequences.
TLDR
Survey of diet and feeding morphology among trichomycterids suggests that the semiparasitic lifestyle of the members of the Stegophilinae was retained in the enigmatic Pareiodon microps, despite reversal to the generalized trichomecterid condition of the associated morphological specializations found in all other stEGophilines.

Phylogenetic relationships of the South American Doradoidea (Ostariophysi: Siluriformes)
A phylogenetic analysis based on 311 morphological characters is presented for most species of the Doradidae, all genera of the Auchenipteridae, and representatives of 16 other catfish families. TheExpand
Phylogenetic systematics of the driftwood catfishes (Siluriformes: Auchenipteridae): a combined morphological and molecular analysis
TLDR
A comprehensive phylogeny of species relationships of the Auchenipteridae is reconstructed here with a large-scale taxon sampling based on combined morphological and molecular datasets, and a new classification scheme is presented, based on the monophyly of major groups in both subfamilies. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships and Molecular Dating of the Major Groups of Catfishes of the Neotropical Superfamily Pimelodoidea (Teleostei, Siluriformes)
TLDR
Fossil-calibrated, Bayesian relaxed clock analysis of divergence times indicate that pimelodoids are likely to have originated between 110 and 95 Ma in the Albian or Cenomanian and that the five major lines of pimelidoids split off soon afterward during a period of explosive diversification for siluroid catfishes.

Molecular evidence for diphyly of the Asian catfish family Amblycipitidae (Teleostei: Siluriformes) and exclusion of the South American Aspredinidae from Sisoroidea
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships among four species of Amblyceps, six species of Liobagrus and the two species of Xiurenbagrus with respect to other sisoroid taxa as well as other catfish groups are investigated using 6100 aligned base pairs of DNA sequence data from the rag1 and rag 2 genes of the nuclear genome and from three regions of the mitochondrial genome.

Phylogenetic relationships within the Eurasian catfish family Siluridae (Pisces: Siluriformes), with comments on generic validities and biogeography
TLDR
This analysis revealed four additional putative synapomorphies of the Siluridae, pending further resolution of the family's outgroup relationships, which are based on 23 terminal groups and 63 morphological characters. Expand
Relationships among characiform fishes inferred from analysis of nuclear and mitochondrial gene sequences.
TLDR
Three instances of trans-continental sistergroup relationships are revealed and, in light of the fossil evidence, suggest that marine dispersal cannot be ruled out a priori and that a simple model of vicariance does not readily explain the biogeographic history of the characiform fishes. Expand

Novel phylogenetic relationships of the enigmatic brevicipitine and scaphiophrynine toads as revealed by sequences from the nuclear Rag–1 gene
TLDR
The findings seem to corroborate a high degree of morphological homoplasy in frogs and suggest that even highly derived morphological states, such as the hydrostatic tongue of microhylids, hemisotids and brevicipitines, may be subject to convergent evolution, parallelism or character reversal.

TLDR
The results coupled with present-day catfish distributions and inferences from the fossil record collectively suggest the ancestor of Ictaluridae to have invaded freshwaters of North America at the close of the Cretaceous through northeastern Asia and northwestern North America. Expand
Monophyly and phylogenetic diagnosis of the family Cetopsidae, with synonymization of the Helogenidae (Teleostei:Siluriformes)

The external morphology of juvenile Helogenes and a number of unusual juvenile features, possibly unique to the genus, are described for the first time. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of thorny catfishes (Siluriformes: Doradidae) inferred from molecular and morphological data
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of complete sequences of mitochondrial 12S and 16S rRNA genes and partial sequences of the nuclear elongation factor-1 alpha (EF1α) gene yields strong support for the monophyly of Doradidae and Astrodoradinae (as well as other relationships), but otherwise shows significant conflict with morphological results.

Molecular systematics of the African electric fishes (Mormyroidea: teleostei) and a model for the evolution of their electric organs.
TLDR
A reconstruction of electrocyte evolution on the basis of the best-supported topology suggests that electrocytes with penetrating stalks evolved once early in the history of the mormyrids followed by multiple paedomorphic reversals to electrocyces with non-penetrating stalks. Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of Chinese sisorid catfishes re-examined using mitochondrial cytochrome b and 16S rRNA gene sequences.
TLDR
It is tentatively date that the glyptosternoids most possibly originated in Oligocene-Miocene boundary (19-24Myr), and radiated from Miocene to Pleistocene, along with a center of origin in the Irrawaddy-Tsangpo drainages and several rapid speciation in a relatively short time. Expand
Anatomy and phylogenetic analysis of the neotropical callichthyid catfishes (Ostariophysi, Siluriformes)
TLDR
Based mainly on morphological characters, the phylogenetic relationships among genera and some species groups of the neotropical family Callichthyidae were examined and Callichthysis considered the least derived member of the subfamily, and is hypothesized as the sister-group of the remaining species.
