Electrophoretic relationships among 18 species, representing all four genera of kinosternid turtles, were defined by phenetic and cladistic analyses. Relatively little protein variation was observed among most species of Kinosternon from Mexico and Central America, except K. sonoriense and K. leucostomum. K. bauri and K. subrubrum, which inhabit the eastern United States, do not appear to be sister taxa to other Kinosternon species. Biochemical results, supported by previous karyotypic data… Expand
