The invertebrate fauna of New Zealand is of great interest as a geologically tractable model for the study of species diversification, but direct comparisons with closely related lineages elsewhere are lacking. Integrating population-level analyses with studies of taxonomy and clade diversification, we performed mtDNA analysis on Neocicindela (Cicindelidae, tiger beetles) for a broad sample of populations from 11 of 12 known species and 161 specimens (three loci, 1883 nucleotides), revealing… CONTINUE READING
