We analyzed the phylogenetic relationships of the Malagasy plated lizards in the family Gerrhosauridae based on DNA sequence fragments of four mitochondrial and five nuclear genes. Various clades were strongly supported by the concatenated data set and also recovered by separate analyses of mtDNA and nucDNA. In particular, two clades here named the Z. rufipes group (containing Z. bemaraha , Z. brygooi , Z. rufipes , Z. subunicolor , Z. tsingy and an undescribed candidate species from northern… CONTINUE READING
