A close relationship between the monotypic Baillonius Cassin, 1867 and Pteroglossus Illiger, 1811 has been previously suggested by morphological, behavioral and molecular data. In the present work, we show that phylogenetic analysis of a fragment of mitochondrial cytochrome b sequences places Baillonius within Pteroglossus. This association received a strong support from maximum likelihood bootstrap and Bayesian posterior probabilities. The recovered tree topology shows that Baillonius bailloni… CONTINUE READING
