Figures from this paper

Phylogenetic placement of enigmatic percomorph families (Teleostei: Percomorphaceae).
The evolution of pharyngognathy: a phylogenetic and functional appraisal of the pharyngeal jaw key innovation in labroid fishes and beyond.
TLDR
This study provides a surprising, but well-supported, hypothesis for a convict-blenny sister group to the charismatic cichlids and new insights into the evolution of pharyngognathy.
A taxonomic revision of Cheilodactylidae and Latridae (Centrarchiformes: Cirrhitoidei) using morphological and genomic characters.
TLDR
The results agree with previous findings suggesting that Cheilodactylidae is restricted to two South African species, with the type species of the family forming a clade with C. pixi Smith that together is more closely related to the Chironemidae than to other species historically associated with the genus.
New insights on early evolution of spiny-rayed fishes (Teleostei: Acanthomorpha)
TLDR
This study provides new insights into the early evolution of the acanthomorphs and the euteleost allies based on the phylogenetic analysis of a newly developed dataset combining nine nuclear and mitochondrial gene markers, and largely agrees with other recent studies based on nuclear loci in inferring an Early Cretaceous origin for the ac anthomorphs followed by a Late Cret Jurassic/Early Paleogene radiation of major lineages.

Percomorph phylogeny: a survey of acanthomorphs and a new proposal
TLDR
The interrelationships of acanthomorph fishes are reviewed and recommend extending the Percomorpha to include the Atherinomorpha (and other smegmamorphs), and argue that this larger group is monophyletic, although this survey does not cover Tetraodontiformes.
Casting the Percomorph Net Widely: The Importance of Broad Taxonomic Sampling in the Search for the Placement of Serranid and Percid Fishes
TLDR
The limits and relationships of serranid and percid fishes, in the context of the percomorph radiation, were resolved using 4036 aligned base pairs of mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequence data for 180 acanthomorph species and a new group is created, the Moronoidei, to reflect the recovered relationships.
