Previous molecular analysis of the order Euryalida (Echinodermata: Ophiuroidea), has identified three monophyletic families, the Euryalidae, Asteronychidae and Gorgonocephalidae. However, family-level relationships have remained unresolved due to inadequate taxon sampling and insufficient molecular markers. Here, we present a family-level revision of the Euryalida based on sequences from mitochondrial genes (16S rRNA and COI) and a nuclear gene (18S rRNA) from 83 euryalid ophiuroids. The… Expand
Description of a New Subfamily, Astrocloninae (Ophiuroidea: Euryalida: Gorgonocephalidae), Based on Molecular Phylogeny and Morphological Observations
TLDR
The molecular analysis supported monophyly of the two species of Astroclon and its clear separation from Astrothamninae and Morphology of the first ventral arm plates and tentacle pores also supported distinctiveness of the new subfamily. Expand
A taxonomic review of the genus Astrocladus (Echinodermata, Ophiuroidea, Euryalida, Gorgonocephalidae) from Japanese coastal waters
TLDR
Japanese species of the genus Astrocladus (Echinodermata, Ophiuroidea, Euryalida, Gorgonocephalidae) are reviewed and four species are concluded that A. coniferus, A. dofleini, and A. exiguus are present in Japanese waters. Expand
A new cryptic species of Asteronyx Müller and Troschel, 1842 (Echinodermata: Ophiuroidea), based on molecular phylogeny and morphology, from off Pacific Coast of Japan
TLDR
The first phylogenetic and phylogeographic studies of the cosmopolitan deep-sea species Asteronyx loveni Muller and Troschel, 1842, were conducted, revealing three lineages and five sub-lineages of A. Loveni, which can be distinguished from congeners by having mesh-like skin and small genital slits at the innermost position on the interradial oral disc. Expand
A Newly Recorded Basket Star of Genus Gorgonocephalus (Ophiuroidea: Euryalida: Gorgonocephalidae) from the East Sea, Korea
TLDR
Nucleotide sequences of partial mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase I (mt-COI) gene were compared among four Gorgonocephalus species, and were subsequently employed to reconstruct phylogenetic trees using the MP, ML, and BI methods, and no sequence difference was found between the G. arcticus mt- COI gene sequences from Korea and Canada.

A New Morphological Phylogeny of the Ophiuroidea (Echinodermata) Accords with Molecular Evidence and Renders Microfossils Accessible for Cladistics
TLDR
A long overdue recast of a morphological phylogeny estimate of the Ophiuroidea taking into account latest insights on microstructural features of the arm skeleton is attempted, suggesting that dissociated lateral arm plates can be analysed in combination with fully known taxa and thus effectively unlocks the extensive record of fossilateral arm plates for phylogenetic estimates.

Phylogenomic Resolution of the Class Ophiuroidea Unlocks a Global Microfossil Record
TLDR
A phylogeny from a highly complete 425-gene, 61-taxa transcriptome-based data set covering 15 of the 18 ophiuroid families and representatives of all extant echinoderm classes is constructed and it is verified that these microfossils contain phylogenetically informative characters. Expand

A new species of Sigsbeia and additional records of ophiuroids from the Great
TLDR
All currently recognised families of Ophiuroidea now have been collected from the Australian and New Zealand region and a new species of Sigsbeia is described from south-western Australia. Expand
Species identification of echinoderms from the North Sea by combining morphology and molecular data
TLDR
This newly established sequence reference library for the North Sea Echinodermata allows and ensures future molecular species identification for various life-cycle stages including juveniles and meroplanktonic larvae and provides sequences for phylogeographic studies and the detection of sibling as well as cryptic species.

Restructuring higher taxonomy using broad-scale phylogenomics: The living Ophiuroidea.
TLDR
A landmark phylogeny of the living ophiuroids is provided and used as the basis for a major revision of the higher classification of this class of marine invertebrates. Expand

TLDR
A cladistic analysis of the class Ophiuroidea at subfamily level is presented based on a morphological data base of 43 characters, which identifies Ophiocanopidae as sister group to other extant ophiuroids, which themselves fall into two major groups. Expand

To address relationships between the asteroids and ophiuroids and other echinoderms, I have sequenced additional nuclear loci and taxa and used novel computational approaches for co-optimizing morphological with molecular evidence at the level of sequence alignment. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the Gasterosteidae: the importance of using multiple genes.

TLDR
The results of an analysis using sequences from five mitochondrial genes produced a single most parsimonious tree with a consistency index of 72.6%, which highlights the importance of using multiple mitochondrial genes in a phylogenetic analysis. Expand
Echinoderm phylogeny including Xyloplax, a progenetic asteroid.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the unique morphology of Xyloplax evolved via progenesis--the truncation of somatic growth at a juvenile body plan but with gonadal growth to maturity, which means that the overall phylogeny of extant echinoderms remains sensitive to the choice of analytical methods, but the placement of XYLoplax as sister to pterasterid asteroids is unequivocal.

  • 2009
TLDR
Consistent differences in habitat-related differences support the existence of two species within the burrowing brittle-star Acrocnida brachiata, and indicate that fundamental taxonomic changes may need to be made in the family Amphiuridae in the future. Expand
The pitfalls of molecular phylogeny based on four species, as illustrated by the Cetacea/Artiodactyla relationships
TLDR
The reliability of phylogeny based on four taxa, when the internal, ancestral, branch is short, is studied, to find a quartet of species which provided a high bootstrap proportion for each of the three possible unrooted trees. Expand
