The systematics of lampreys was investigated using complete mitochondrial cytochrome b sequences from all genera and nearly all recognized species. The families Geotriidae and Petromyzontidae are monophyletic, but the family Mordaciidae was resolved as two divergent lineages at the base of the tree. Within Petromyzontidae, the nonparasitic Lethenteron sp. S and Okkelbergia aepyptera were recognized as distinct lineages, Lethenteron morii and Lampetra zanandreai were moved to new genera, a… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Three new cryptic species of the lamprey genus Lampetra Bonnaterre, 1788 (Petromyzontiformes: Petromyzontidae) from the Iberian Peninsula

Three new species of the lamprey genus Lampetra Bonnaterre are described, which will contribute to the conservation of these already imperilled taxa and will help prevent the extinction of three important evolutionary lineages.

The taxonomy, phylogeny and distribution of lampreys

The phylogenetic relationships of the lampreys were similar in most respects to those obtained by subjecting molecular data for those species to Bayesian analyses, however, in contrast to the results of morphological analyses, the genera Eudontomyzon and Lampetra were not monophyletic when using molecular analyses.

Morphology-based taxonomic re-assessment of the Arctic lamprey, Lethenteron camtschaticum (Tilesius, 1811) and taxonomic position of other members of the genus

An in-depth study of large samples of nonparasitic lamprey adults from Japan and Sakhalin Island is needed to determine whether the lower trunk myomere from these areas represent one or more undescribed species, or Le.

The complete mitogenome of two Australian lampreys: mordacia mordax and mordacia praecox

The recovered topology strongly supported the hypothesis that lampreys separated from hagfishes about 409 MYA, and that lamprey divergence involved the early radiation of Mordaciidae followed by the monophyletic divergence of Geotriidae plus Petromyzontidae about 85 MYA.

The mitogenomes of the pouched lamprey (Geotria australis) and least brook lamprey (Lampetra aepyptera) with phylogenetic considerations

The phylogenetic analysis supports that the pouched lamprey (Geotriidae) diverged earlier from the common ancestor of lampreys than the Petromyzonids, and the placement of the least brook lamprey in the genus Lampetra.

Revalidation of the Argentinian pouched lamprey Geotria macrostoma (Burmeister, 1868) with molecular and morphological evidence

The results indicate that the Argentinian pouched lamprey, found along a broad latitudinal gradient on the south-west Atlantic coast of South America, should be named as Geotria macrostoma (Burmeister, 1868), returning to its earliest valid designation in Argentina.

Contrasting population genetic structure among freshwater-resident and anadromous lampreys: the role of demographic history, differential dispersal and anthropogenic barriers to movement

It is concluded that postglacial colonization founded multiple freshwater‐resident populations with strong habitat fidelity and limited dispersal tendencies that became highly differentiated, a pattern that was likely intensified by anthropogenic barriers.

Simple Genetic Assay Distinguishes Lamprey Genera Entosphenus and Lampetra: Comparison with Existing Genetic and Morphological Identification Methods

A simpler genetic assay is described using the Pacific Lamprey microsatellite locus Etr-1; the assay was found to be 100% reliable in distinguishing Entosphenus from Lampetra, even in genetically divergent LampetRA populations.

The Southern Hemisphere lampreys (Geotriidae and Mordaciidae)

The taxonomy, distribution, biology, genetics, significance, and threats to these lampreys from over 100 years of written sources are reviewed, complemented by interviews and Indigenous knowledge, in order to synthesise and centralise key information.

Characterization and Evolution of Germ1, an Element that Undergoes Diminution in Lampreys (Cyclostomata: Petromyzontidae)

The results suggest that Germ1 is a R2 retroelement that occurs in the genome of P. marinus and other petromyzontid lampreys, and that its diminution is incidental to the reduction in rDNA copies during embryogenesis.



Phylogeny of Living Parasitic Lampreys (Petromyzontiformes) Based on Morphological Data

Relationships among the 18 extant species of parasitic lamprey (Petromyzontiformes) were determined using a cladistic analysis of 32 mainly morphological characters, revealing a trichotomy between a monophyletic northern hemisphere clade and the southern hemisphere genera Geotria and Mordacia.

Phylogeny of the lamprey genus Lampetra inferred from mitochondrial cytochrome b and ND3 gene sequences

Mitochrondrial DNA analysis resolved many previously unanswered questions concerning the phylogeny of the lamprey genus Lampetra (comprising the subgenera Entosphenus, Lethenteron, and Lampetras) using rates of molecular evolution estimated in other fish taxa.

Adaptive Radiation of Lampreys

Taxonomy and molecular phylogeny of Lethenteron lampreys in eastern Eurasia

Results suggest that L. reissneri in the upper Amur basin is likely to be the same taxonomic entity as L. kessleri reported from eastern Eurasia, and the direction of life-history evolution presumed from the most parsimonious character reconstruction on the molecular tree was inconsistent with the previous hypothesis that nonparasitic species arise from parasitic species.

The complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial DNA of the agnathan Lampetra fluviatilis: bearings on the phylogeny of cyclostomes.

The mtDNA sequence of L. fluviatilis was used in combination with relevant mtDNA sequences for an approach to the hagfish/lamprey relationships using the maximum-parsimony, neighbor-joining, and maximum-likelihood methods, and the data collected do not support the vertebrate or the cyclostome hypothesis.

Satellite species among the holarctic lampreys (Petromyzonidae)

Among the six polyspecific genera of the holarctic lampreys, 12 parasitic and 20 satellite species are presently known.

Genetic structure and differentiation of four Lethenteron taxa from the Far East, deduced from allozyme analysis

Several complete-allele substitutions were found between all possible pairs of taxa in regions of sympatry, strongly suggesting the existence of reproductive isolation between them, and four Lethenteron taxa should be regarded as discrete species.

Redescription of Lampetra ayresii (Günther) of Western North America, a Species of Lamprey (Petromyzontidae) Distinct from Lampetra fluviatilis (Linnaeus) of Europe

A neotype is designated for Lampetra ayresii (Gunther), a species of parasitic river lamprey endemic to western North America that is redescribed on the basis of material from off the Skeena River, British Columbia, to San Francisco Bay, California.

Recent Advances in the (Molecular) Phylogeny of Vertebrates

A discussion of limitations of currently used molecular markers and phylogenetic methods as well as the contribution of molecular phylogenetic data to their resolution are presented.

Complete sequence of a sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) mitochondrial genome: early establishment of the vertebrate genome organization.

The complete nucleotide sequence of a sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) mitochondrial genome has been determined, demonstrating that the common mitochondrial gene organization of vertebrates was established at an early stage of vertebrate evolution.
