Abstract Bonefish leptocephali of the genus Albula are difficult to identify to the species level due to morphological similarities between two different species present in the Northeastern Pacific Ocean, A. esuncula and A. gilberti. In this study, 22 bonefish leptocephali (premetamorphic and early metamorphic), collected from two locations in the southern Gulf of California were identified as Albula gilberti by comparing 459 bp of their mitochondrial cytochrome b gene sequences to those of… 
Bacterial communities on the gills of bonefish (Albula vulpes) in the Florida Keys and The Bahamas show spatial structure and differential abundance of disease-associated bacteria
TLDR
Results show that gill bacterial community signatures may prove useful for investigating bonefish spatial ecology and that communities of microbes on bonefish gills contain differentially abundant and potentially pathogenic bacteria that covary with the overall “health” of the population.

Background Bonefishes are cryptic species indiscriminately targeted by subsistence and recreational fisheries worldwide. The roundjaw bonefish, Albula glossodonta is the most widespread bonefish

Molecular Identification of the Bonefish Albula esuncula (Albuliformes: Albulidae) from the Tropical Eastern Pacific, with Comments on Distribution and Morphology
TLDR
The distributions of the two putative species inferred from the molecular data suggest that the single available name for eastern Pacific bonefishes, Albula esuncula (Garman, 1899), originally described from larvae collected off Acapulco, Guerrero, should be assigned to Albula sp.
Albula gilberti, a new species of bonefish (Albuliformes: Albulidae) from the eastern Pacific, and a description of adults of the parapatric A. esuncula
TLDR
A new species of bonefish from the eastern Pacific Ocean, Albula gilberti, is described and the current nomenclature of the subfamily Albulinae is reviewed, discussing the role and justification of using molecular data for diagnosing cryptic species.
Identification of Albula sp. (Albulidae: Albuliformes) Leptocephalus Collected from the Southern Coastal Waters of Korea using Cytochrome b DNA Sequences
TLDR
Its genetic characteristic have more similarities to those of Fiji than those of Hawaii and the Northern territory of Australia, which falls into the cutoff point separating Albula species into eight deep lineages including the four valid species.
THE EVOLUTIONARY ENIGMA OF BONEFISHES (ALBULA SPP.): CRYPTIC SPECIES AND ANCIENT SEPARATIONS IN A GLOBALLY DISTRIBUTED SHOREFISH
TLDR
Despite multiple cases of sympatry, sister-taxa relationships inferred from mtDNA indicate that divergence in allopatry has been the predominant speciation mechanism in Albula, and stabilizing selection in the homogeneous habitat occupied by bonefishes could promote the retention of highly conserved morphology and ecology.

TLDR
Premetamorphosis leptocephalus larvae of P. gissu are characterized by having poorly developed fin rays except for the caudal fin, a translucent body, branched melanophores beneath the eye, and punctuate melanophore on the dorsal edge of the gut from the throat to the anus.
Phylogenetic Relationships of the Shafted Bonefish Albula Nemoptera (Albuliformes: Albulidae) from the Eastern Pacific Based on Cytochrome B Sequence Analyses
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses showed that A. nemoptera from the tropical eastern Pacific nested within the A. vulpes complex, supporting the placement of the genus Dixonina Fowler, 1911 into the synonymy of Albula Scopoli, 1777 and suggested that Albula sp.
Premetamorphic bonefish (Albula sp.) leptocephali from the Gulf of California with comments on life history
TLDR
The data suggest that spawning occurs during late spring and summer and that early development takes place offshore and that the premetamorphic interval is postulated to last approximately 6–7 months.
SYSTEMATICS AND BIOLOGY OF THE BONEFISH, ALBULA NEMOPTERA (FOWLER)
This study is a review of the taxonomic status of the bonefish, Albula nemoptera, formerly placed in the genus Di"o";"". Reasons for synonymizing Di"o";",, with Albula are discusSed, and it is shown
High intraspecific genetic connectivity in the Indo-Pacific bonefishes: implications for conservation and management

  • 2015
TLDR
The present study highlights the need for further research, and suggests conservation and management strategies for the Indo-Pac bonefishes may need both local and regional components to prevent further declines and localized collapse.
Patterns of distribution and abundance of bonefish larvae Albula spp. (Albulidae) in the western Caribbean and adjacent areas
TLDR
To ascertain whether the coastal inflow of leptocephali follows a regular seasonal pattern or depends on episodic events will require further monitoring; available evidence suggests that the southern coast of the MXC offers favorable conditions for the recruitment of Albula spp.
