Aim  Phylogenetic studies concerning island biogeography have been concentrated in a fraction of the numerous hot‐spot archipelagos contained within the Pacific Ocean. In this study we investigate relationships among island populations of the thomisid spider Misumenops rapaensis Berland, 1934 across the Austral Islands, a remote and rarely examined southern Pacific hot‐spot archipelago. We also assess the phylogenetic position of M. rapaensis in relation to thomisids distributed across multiple… 
Biogeography of the fauna of French Polynesia: diversification within and between a series of hot spot archipelagos
TLDR
Molecular markers highlight the rapidity of Polynesian human (plus commensal) migrations and the importance of admixture from other populations during the period of prehistoric human voyages.
Diversity despite dispersal: colonization history and phylogeography of Hawaiian crab spiders inferred from multilocus genetic data
TLDR
The results indicate that dispersal has been sufficiently limited to allow extensive ecological diversification, yet frequent enough that interisland migration is more common than speciation.
Molecular phylogeny of Indo‐Pacific carpenter ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae, Camponotus) reveals waves of dispersal and colonization from diverse source areas
TLDR
Results indicate that the Pacific members of this group comprise several robust clades that have distinctly different biogeographical histories, and they suggest an important role for Australia as a source of Pacific colonizations.
Phylogeography of Australian and New Zealand spray zone spiders (Anyphaenidae: Amaurobioides): Moa's Ark loses a few more passengers
TLDR
The present study further limits the scope of the Moa's Ark hypothesis of vicariant New Zealand biogeography by showing that Amaurobioides reached Australia approximately 4.5 Mya and dispersed twice to New Zealand.
Molecular phylogeography of the Society Islands (Tahiti; South Pacific) reveals departures from hotspot archipelago models
TLDR
The phylogeography of the native terrestrial biota of the Society Islands, an archipelago formed < 4.6 Ma, is reviewed to test the model that the biotas of oceanic hotspot archipelagos diversify in parallel with the formation of the islands on which they live.
Genetic relationships of Amaurobioides (Anyphaenidae) spiders from the southeastern coast of New Zealand
TLDR
This study expands the distribution records of three morphological species of Amaurobioides found on the eastern and southern coasts of New Zealand’s South Island and uses mitochondrial DNA to examine their relationships and characterize their dispersal capabilities.
A preliminary molecular analysis of phylogenetic and biogeographic relationships of New Zealand Thomisidae (Araneae) using a multi-locus approach
TLDR
Evidence of recent dispersal to New Zealand by Australian stephanopines combined with the proposed maximum divergence date of 5.3 mya indicates that the New Zealand thomisids are a younger lineage than previously suspected.
Evidence for Miocene overwater colonization in Caribbean Cyrtognatha spiders
TLDR
The authors' analyses refute vicariance and instead support an overwater colonization to the Caribbean in mid-Miocene, suggesting a monophyletic radiation of Caribbean Cyrtognatha, containing 11 to 14 species that are exclusively single island endemics.
Molecular insights into the phylogenetic structure of the spider genus Theridion (Araneae, Theridiidae) and the origin of the Hawaiian Theridion‐like fauna
TLDR
Results indicate that the Hawaiian Islands were colonised by two independent Theridiinae lineages, one of which originated in the Americas and both lineages have undergone local diversification in the archipelago and have convergently evolved similar bizarre morphs.

Mitochondrial DNA phylogeny and sequential colonization of Canary Islands by darkling beetles of the genus Pimelia (Tenebrionidae)
Fifteen species of the darkling beetle genus Pimelia (Tenebrionidae: Coleoptera) have been sequenced for a 365 b. p. portion of the mitochondrial Cytochrome Oxidase I gene. Thirteen of these are
Patterns of genetic variation in Pacific island land snails: the distribution of cytochrome b lineages among Society Island Partula
TLDR
The distribution of mitochondrial lineages across islands strongly indicates that their origins predate the colonization of the islands in the study, and that they are very unlikely to have evolved entirely in situ.

TLDR
The phylogenetic estimate produced from both maximum likelihood and maximum parsimony supports the hypothesis that speciation in Laupala occurred mainly within islands, and Hypotheses that may explain the conflict between the phylogenetic patterns of mtDNA variation and the species taxonomy are discussed.

  • 1997
TLDR
Analysis of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequences for a sample of individuals from 81 populations representing 28 Nesticus species indicate that considerable genetic divergence exists within and among currently recognized morphological species, and evidence to suggest that cryptic phylogenetic lineages exist within some morphologically continuous units.
Geographical history of the central‐western Pacific black fly subgenus Inseliellum (Diptera: Simuliidae: Simulium) based on a reconstructed phylogeny of the species, hot‐spot archipelagoes and hydrological considerations
TLDR
With six new species of subgenus Inseliellum Rubtsov recently described, a revised reconstructed phylogeny based on morphology is required, which provides the basis for a reconstructed geographical history of the species.

TLDR
The nDNA phylogeny corroborates the hypothesis of allopatric divergence and multiple invasions, and when compared with mtDNA patterns, suggests that interspecific hybridization is a persistent feature of the history of Laupala.
Origin of the Hawaiian endemic mints within North American Stachys (Lamiaceae).
TLDR
It is hypothesize that the Hawaiian mints may be polyploid hybrids whose reticulate genomes predate the Hawaiian dispersal event and are derived from Stachys lineages with flowers exhibiting insect- vs. bird-pollination characteristics.
ITS Base Sequence Phylogeny in Bidens (Asteraceae): Evidence for the Continental Relatives of Hawaiian and Marquesan Bidens
TLDR
The continental sister group of Polynesian Bidens appears to be a group of Latin American herbaceous species with determinate growth in section Psilocarpaea rather than the indeterminate woody vines of section Greenmania, which suggests that woodiness and indeterminates growth are apomorphic in Polynesia Bidens.
Biogeography of spiders on remote oceanic islands of the Pacific: archipelagoes as stepping stones?
TLDR
The species composition of spiders is examined in native communities on three remote oceanic archipelagoes to test hypotheses concerning the relative importance for species accumulation of immigration from the nearest land mass, vs. in situ speciation.
