Most living species of New World marsupials are classified in the family Didelphidae, with 98 species and 18 genera currently recognized. We sequenced fragments of two mitochondrial genes of didelphid marsupials from the Atlantic Forest of eastern South America, a biodiversity hotspot. We evaluated sequence divergences within and among species and contrasted the efficiency of cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) with cytochrome b (CytB) in species-level diagnosis. The average intraspecific… CONTINUE READING
