Thirty-six individuals of the California newt, Taricha torosa, representing 22 populations from throughout the range of the two currently recognized subspecies, torosa and sierrae, were examined for sequence variation in a segment (375 bp) of the mitochondrial (mt) cytochrome b gene. The maximum sequence divergence within T. torosa is about 9%. Phylogenetic analyses used the sister taxa T. rivularis and T. granulosa as outgroups. Eighteen haploid sequence types found in T. torosa were grouped… CONTINUE READING
