Nannostomus is comprised of 20 species. Popularly known as pencilfishes the vast majority of these species lives in the flooded forests of the Amazon basin and are popular in the ornamental trade. Among the lebiasinids, it is the only genus to have undergone more than one taxonomic revision. Even so, it still possesses poorly defined species. Here, we report the results of an application of DNA barcoding to the identification of pencilfishes and highlight the deeply divergent clades within four…

DNA Barcoding Silver Butter Catfish (Schilbe intermedius) Reveals Patterns of Mitochondrial Genetic Diversity Across African River Systems
Results from the mtDNA phylogeography and species delimitation tests revealed that S. intermedius comprises at least seven geographically defined matrilines, and the patterns of genetic diversity and population structure were consistent with adaptive responses to historical biogeographic factors and contemporary environmental variations across African river systems.
Application of DNA barcodes in wildlife conservation in Tropical East Asia
DNA barcodes (or metabarcodes from next‐generation sequencers) may be especially useful for characterizing and connecting species‐level biodiversity units in inventories encompassing taxa lacking formal description and in large‐scale, minimal‐impact approaches to vertebrate monitoring and population assessments through secondary sources of DNA.


Can DNA barcoding accurately discriminate megadiverse Neotropical freshwater fish fauna?
This study is the first to examine a large number of freshwater fish species from the Neotropical area, including alarge number of closely related species, and confirmed the efficacy of the barcoding methodology to identify a recently radiated, megadiverse fauna.
Molecular signature of the D-loop in the brown pencilfish Nannostomus eques (Characiformes, Lebiasinidae) reveals at least two evolutionary units in the Rio Negro basin, Brazil.
The rapids and waterfalls near São Gabriel da Cachoeira (Upper Rio Negro) were the main barriers to gene flow within evolutionary unit 1 in some localities and the emergences of the Branco River and the Anavilhanas Archipelago were apparently responsible for the discrepancy in distribution of the two evolutionary units.
Deep barcode divergence in Brazilian freshwater fishes: the case of the São Francisco River basin
Reflecting possible cases of cryptic speciation and the deeper phylogeographic history of São Francisco fish fauna, with some higher clades extending back into the late Cretaceous and Cenozoic (90 mya), when much of the diversification of the Neotropical region apparently took place.
DNA barcoding of Cuban freshwater fishes: evidence for cryptic species and taxonomic conflicts
The results evidenced the usefulness of the DNA barcodes for cataloguing Cuban freshwater fish species and for identifying those groups that deserve further taxonomic attention.
Neotropical Bats: Estimating Species Diversity with DNA Barcodes
This study surveys current and potential species diversity using DNA barcodes with a collection of more than 9000 individuals from 163 species of Neotropical bats, one of the largest surveys to employ this strategy on any animal group and is certainly the largest to date for land vertebrates.
DNA barcoding Neotropical fishes: recent advances from the Pampa Plain, Argentina
The fish fauna of the Pampa Plain, the southernmost distribution range of many Neotropical species, was barcoded and highlighted the likely occurrence of a cryptic species in Salminus brasiliensis and illustrated the strong geographical structure in the COI sequence composition of seven fish species from South America.
Probing diversity in freshwater fishes from Mexico and Guatemala with DNA barcodes.
The results confirm that DNA barcodes will be highly effective in discriminating freshwater fishes from Central America and that a comprehensive analysis will provide new important insights for understanding diversity of this fauna.
Population history of the Amazonian one-lined pencilfish based on intron DNA data
The results match the predictions of the palaeogeography hypothesis of speciation and outline the usefulness of an intron DNA marker to reconstruct population history of a central Amazonian fish.
Ten species in one: DNA barcoding reveals cryptic species in the neotropical skipper butterfly Astraptes fulgerator.
The results add to the evidence that cryptic species are prevalent in tropical regions, a critical issue in efforts to document global species richness, and illustrate the value of DNA barcoding, especially when coupled with traditional taxonomic tools, in disclosing hidden diversity.
Cryptic diversity in flathead fishes (Scorpaeniformes: Platycephalidae) across the Indo‐West Pacific uncovered by DNA barcoding
A thorough reappraisal of the current taxonomy of P. indicus (and its three junior synonyms) is warranted in conjunction with detailed taxonomic work on the other additional Platycephalidae OTUs detected by DNA barcoding.
