The use of molecular data for species delimitation in Anthozoa is still a very delicate issue. This is probably due to the low genetic variation found among the molecular markers (primarily mitochondrial) commonly used for Anthozoa. Ceriantharia is an anthozoan group that has not been tested for genetic divergence at the species level. Recently, all three Atlantic species described for the genus Isarachnanthus of Atlantic Ocean, were deemed synonyms based on morphological simmilarities of only…

Evolutionary Diversification of Banded Tube-Dwelling Anemones (Cnidaria; Ceriantharia; Isarachnanthus) in the Atlantic Ocean

It is revealed that two different species exist in the Atlantic Ocean and genetic divergence within and between Ceriantharia species is more similar to that found in Medusozoa than Anthozoa and Porifera that have divergence rates similar to typical metazoans.

Molecular Evidence for Cryptic Species of Aurelia aurita (Cnidaria, Scyphozoa)

Nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequence data indicate speciation events as early as the late Cretaceous or early Tertiary, consistent with the formation of well-recognized biogeographic barriers to gene flow in the seas.

Global phylogeography of Cassiopea (Scyphozoa: Rhizostomeae): molecular evidence for cryptic species and multiple invasions of the Hawaiian Islands

Molecular phylogenetic results support at least two independent introductions to the Hawaiian Islands, one from the Indo-Pacific, another from the western Atlantic/Red Sea, and two deeply divergent O’ahu haplotypes from morphologically similar, geographically separate invasive populations indicate long-term reproductive isolation of phylogenetically distinct source populations and cryptic species.

Slow Mitochondrial COI Sequence Evolution at the Base of the Metazoan Tree and Its Implications for DNA Barcoding

The evolution rates of mtDNA in early metazoans hold important implications for DNA barcoding. Here, we present a comprehensive analysis of intra- and interspecific COI variabilities in Porifera and

Phylogenetic signal in mitochondrial and nuclear markers in sea anemones (Cnidaria, Actiniaria).

The properties of mitochondrial and nuclear ribosomal genes in the cnidarian order Actiniaria are explored, using both an ordinal- and familial-scale sample of taxa and although the markers do not show significant incongruence, they differ in their phylogenetic informativeness and the kinds of relationships they resolve.

Systematic relationships within the Anthozoa (Cnidaria: Anthozoa) using the 5'-end of the 28S rDNA.

Parsimony analysis indicates that the Ceriantipatharia are most representative of the ancestral Anthozoa, and gives no support for Hand's hypothesis of scleractinian ancestry of actiniarians and corallimorphians.

Phylogenetic relationships within the class Anthozoa (phylum Cnidaria) based on nuclear 18S rDNA sequences.

The 18S rRNA gene has sufficient phylogenetic signal, however, to distinguish among the major groupings within the Class Anthozoa, and this information is used to suggest relationships for the enigmatic taxa Dactylanthus and Dendrobrachia.

Discovery and description of a new species of Abyssoanthus (Zoantharia: Hexacorallia) at the Japan Trench: the world's deepest known zoanthid

This molecular (mitochondrial 16S ribosomal DNA) and morphological (dimensions, cnidome) findings show a large population of a new species, Abyssoanthus convallis, living on mudstone in an "ecological hotspot" characterized by large amounts of marine snowfall.
