Examples of Antitropical and Antiequatorial Distribution of Indo-West-Pacific Fishes

  title={Examples of Antitropical and Antiequatorial Distribution of Indo-West-Pacific Fishes},
  author={John E. Randall},
Hubbs (1952) introduced the term "antitropical distribution" in reference to species found north and south of the tropical zone but not in the tropics. To this may be added the term "antiequatorial distribution" for those animals and plants that occur south of the Tropic of Cancer and north of the Tropic of Capricorn but not within the equatorial latitudes. The following species of Indo-West-Pacific fishes not mentioned by Hubbs (1952) exhibit antitropical or antiequatorial distribution… 
The worldwide occurrence of antitropical organisms is correlated with a reorga- nization of world climate culminating in the middle Miocene, and evidence bearing on the relationships of the American an- chovies is consistent with this paleoclimatic hypothesis.
Revision of the genus Hapalogenys (Teleostei: Perciformes) with two new species from the Indo-West Pacific
The Indo-West Pacifi c genus Hapalogenys is reviewed and two new species are described: H. dampieriensis sp.
Additions to the New Zealand marine eel fauna with the description of a new moray, Anarchias supremus (Teleostei: Muraenidae), and comments on the identity of Gymnothorax griffini Whitley & Phillips
Abstract Anarchias supremus new species is described on the basis of a specimen dredged at 154 m off Macauley Island, Kermadec Ridge, and differs from its congeners in its coloration, dentition, and
Antitropical distribution of Lobelia species (Campanulaceae) between the Ryukyu Archipelago of Japan and Oceania as indicated by molecular data
The lineage of L. loochooensis and the five Lobelia species occurring in Oceania demonstrate an antitropical distribution pattern and has likely originated from a dispersal event from Australia to the Ryukyu Archipelago.
The Moray Eels of Australia and New Zealand, with the Description of Two New Species (Anguilliformes: Muraenidae)
The types of moray eel type specimens in museums have been re-examined, their identities established, and brief descriptions of the specimens written, and a key to the 59 muraenid species of Australia and New Zealand is presented.
Molecular phylogeography reveals an antitropical distribution and local diversification of Solenogyne (Asteraceae) in the Ryukyu Archipelago of Japan and Australia
Phylogenetic network analyses suggested that the ancestral lineage of S. mikadoi first colonized the southernmost island in the archipelago and then dispersed northward, indicating the antitropical distribution and Australian origin of Solenogyne.

A Revision of the Hawaiian Lizardfishes of the Genus Synodus with Descriptions of Four New Species
The Hawaiian lizard fishes of the genus Synodus are reviewed; 4 new species are described (bringing to 12 the number known from Hawaii), and the range of S. capricorn is extended to the Northern Hemisphere.
Scorched mussels (Brachidontes spp., Bivalvia: Mytilidae) from the tropical and warm‐temperate southwestern Atlantic: the role of the Amazon River in their speciation
Although scorched mussels are very similar in appearance, their evolutionary histories are very different, involving major historical contingencies as the formation of the Amazon River, the Panama Isthmus, and the last marine transgression.


Additions to revisions of the blenniid fish genera Ecsenius and Entomacrodus, with descriptions of three new species of Ecsenius
New distribution records and supplemental data on species of Ecsenius and Entomacrodus are given with reference to recent revisions of these genera by Springer (1967, 1971).
