We investigated the phylogeographic differentiation of the widely distributed African helmeted terrapin Pelomedusa subrufa based on 1503 base pairs of mitochondrial DNA (partial cyt b and ND4 genes with adjacent tRNAs) and 1937 bp of nuclear DNA (partial Rag1, Rag2, R35 genes). Congruent among different analyses, nine strongly divergent mitochondrial clades were found, representing three major geographical groupings: (1) A northern group which includes clades I from Cameroon, II from Ghana and… Expand
