Recent investigations suggest that marine biodiversity may be much higher than earlier estimates, and an important hidden source of diversity in marine systems is the phenomenon of cryptic species complexes. Such complexes are informative models for research into the evolutionary processes that govern species compositions of marine fauna. The snapping shrimp genera Alpheus and Synalpheus are known to harbour large numbers of cryptic species; here, I characterize the genetic structure of the…

Phylogeographic patterns of a lower intertidal isopod in the Gulf of California and the Caribbean and comparison with other intertidal isopods
TLDR
Phylogeographic patterns of E. mayana in the Gulf of California and the Caribbean are examined, suggesting the presence of multiple species and two instances of Atlantic–Pacific divergences are identified.
Deep mitochondrial divergence within a Heliconius butterfly species is not explained by cryptic speciation or endosymbiotic bacteria
TLDR
Historical demographic processes are the most likely explanation for the high mitochondrial differentiation in H. e.
Evidence for restricted gene flow over small spatial scales in a marine snapping shrimp Alpheus angulosus
Despite the apparent absence of geographic barriers, connectivity among marine populations may be restricted by, for example, ecological or behavioral mechanisms. In such cases, populations may show
Evidence of cryptic diversity in freshwater Macrobrachium prawns from Indochinese riverine systems revealed by DNA barcode, species delimitation and phylogenetic approaches
TLDR
Results of this study show explicitly the importance of freshwater ecosystems in Indochinese subregions, especially for the Mekong River Basin due to its high genetic diversity and species composition found throughout its tributaries.
Comparative phylogeographic studies of three marine and one amphidromous decapod species clarifying the mechanisms of generation and maintenance of genetic diversity and identifying cryptic species
TLDR
The results provide evidence that dispersal play a minor role in determining the genetic structure of a species, compared to the biogeographic history and physical factors.
Niche diversity in crustacean cryptic species: complementarity in spatial distribution and predation risk
TLDR
A community structured by predator-mediated coexistence or sequential dominance across environmental gradients in the littoral zone is suggested, suggesting that species with close phenotypic similarity may differ appreciably along ecologically relevant axes.

TLDR
A phylogenetic study of the oceanic copepod family Eucalanidae was undertaken to develop a model zooplankton taxon in which speciation events can be confidently identified, suggesting that continental landmasses form barriers to dispersal for a subset of circumglobal species.
SPECIATION AND DIVERSITY ON TROPICAL ROCKY SHORES: A GLOBAL PHYLOGENY OF SNAILS OF THE GENUS ECHINOLITTORINA
Abstract A phylogenetic approach to the origin and maintenance of species diversity ideally requires the sampling of all species within a clade, confirmation that they are evolutionarily distinct

TLDR
It is suggested that the Indo‐West Pacific clade of Echinolittorina has been isolated since closure of the Tethyan seaway in the early Miocene, and there has been no acceleration of diversification during the glacioeustatic cycles of the Plio‐Pleistocene.

POPULATION STRUCTURE AND SPECIATION IN TROPICAL SEAS: GLOBAL PHYLOGEOGRAPHY OF THE SEA URCHIN DIADEMA
TLDR
The phylogeny of the pantropical and subtropical sea urchin genus Diadema is reconstructed, using sequences of mitochondrial DNA from 482 individuals collected around the world, to determine the efficacy of barriers to gene flow and to ascertain the history of possible dispersal and vicariance events that led to speciation.

TLDR
Large genetic divergences and reproductive isolation indicate that the morphologically conservative E. affinis constitutes a sibling species complex.

TLDR
The coincident occurrence of range endpoints and genetic breaks along the east coast of Florida in both direct‐developing species and species with planktonic development indicates that this biogeographic break is not due to development‐specific mechanisms such as hydrographic effects on larval recruitment.
Hidden Floridian biodiversity: mitochondrial and nuclear gene trees reveal four cryptic species within the scorched mussel, Brachidontes exustus, species complex
TLDR
The primary novel result was the discovery that the Gulf/Atlantic disjunction represents but one of three cryptic, nested genetic discontinuities represented in Floridian scorched mussel populations.
PHYLOGEOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS OF THE BROODING BRITTLE STAR AMPHIPHOLIS SQUAMATA (ECHINODERMATA) ALONG THE COAST OF NEW ZEALAND REVEALS HIGH CRYPTIC GENETIC VARIATION AND CRYPTIC DISPERSAL POTENTIAL
TLDR
The results support the idea that dispersal occurs through passive transport by drifting or rafting on macroalgae, which A. squamata commonly inhabits, and emphasize that poor dispersal ability is not necessarily a corollary of direct development.
