The African Dwarf Crocodile (Osteolaemus) has been a long-standing problem for crocodilian systematists. Previously divided into separate genera, present forms are currently recognized as two subspecies within the single named species, 0. tetraspis. We sequenced a 350 bp region of mitochondrial DNA in an attempt to elucidate the relationships within one of these forms, 0. t. tetraspis. Results indicate at least two distinct and well-supported groups with nucleotide sequence divergence levels… Expand
