Diversity of Aplochiton Fishes (Galaxiidea) and the Taxonomic Resurrection of A. marinus
A lack of phylogeographic patterns and overrepresentation of uncommon haplotypes suggested demographic expansions in recent evolutionary time, especially of A. zebra, in line with the hypothesis of large-scale range expansion and lineage spread in western Patagonia.
DNA Barcoding and Microsatellites Help Species Delimitation and Hybrid Identification in Endangered Galaxiid Fishes
DNA barcoding and a new developed set of microsatellite markers revealed that phenotypic misidentification was widespread, size-dependent, and highly asymmetric in A. zebra and A. taeniatus, the former species being more widespread than previously thought.
Robert M. McDowall—taxonomist and biogeographer
Robert (Bob) McDowall died in Christchurch, New Zealand on 20 February 2011 after a short illness and was an acknowledged world authority on the taxonomy and biogeography of freshwater fishes.
Glacial clay affects foraging performance in a Patagonian fish and cladoceran
Climate change is altering temperatures and precipitation patterns all over the world. In Patagonia, Argentina, predicted increase in precipitation together with rapidly melting glaciers increase the

The galaxioid fishes are the dominant, most speciose group of freshwater fishes (with >50 species) in the lands of the cool southern hemisphere, with representatives in western and eastern Australia,

Lake resident and migratory smelt, Retropinna retropinna (Richardson), of the lower Waikato River system, New Zealand
Evidence for reproductive separation of the two forms is presented and mechanisms controlling their meristic and other differences are considered.
The galaxiid fishes of Australia (Pisces: Galaxiidae)
This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, as well as provide a chronology of key events leading to and including the invention of Australia's GalaxIIDAE.
Fishes of the family retropinnidae (Pisces: Salmoniformes) — A taxonomic revision and synopsis
It is concluded that diadromous and lacustrine populations of Retropinna in New Zealand are RetropInna retropinNA (Richardson), and that R. setnoni is the only species, in mainland Australia and Tasmania.
Population studies of Galaxias maculatus (Jenyns) (Osteichthys: Galaxiidae) in Chile with reference to the number of vertebrae
Se sugiere un aislamiento reproductivo entre estas poblaciones that proporciona argumentos para reconsiderar la validez de las two especies de Galaxias descritas por Jenyns (1842) para Sudamerica.
Cephalic sensory canals, pitlines, and the classification of esocoid fishes, with notes on galaxiids and other teleosts. American Museum novitates ; no. 2492
In both the Esocidae and Umbridae, phyletic trends involve reduction of cephalic sensory canals and elaboration of pitlines, indicating interrelationships among Recent species.
The species problem in freshwater fishes and the taxonomy of diadromous and lacustrine populations of Galaxias maculatus (Jenyns)
Galaxias maculatus (Jenyns) is shown to occur in Australia, New Zealand, Chatham Islands, Chile, Tierra del Fuego, and Falkland Islands in the typical diadromous form, and in these populations vertebral number is reduced to about 55, from about 62 in diadrome stocks.
Fishes of the family aplochitonidae
It is improbable that the distribution pattern of the family Aplochitonidae is best explained by changes in position of southern temperate land masses, as several aplochitoid species as well as Geotria australis Gray and species of Galaxias have marine stages in their life histories.
The galaxiid fishes of South America
The galaxiids are regarded as southern circumpolar elements in the South American freshwater fish fauna, distinct from the group of species of Amazonian derivation (trichomycterids, Nematogenys, Diplomystes, Cheirodon, etc.) and distinct also from oceanic derivatives, either recent (atherinids) or ancient (serranids).
