Peripatric speciation is a mode of speciation in which a new species is formed from an isolated peripheral population.[1]:105 Since peripatric speciation resembles allopatric speciation, in that populations are isolated and prevented from exchanging genes, it can often be difficult to distinguish between them.[2] Nevertheless, the primary characteristic of peripatric speciation proposes that one of the populations is much smaller than the other. The terms peripatric and peripatry are often used…

A snapshot of progenitor–derivative speciation in Iberodes (Boraginaceae)
TLDR
This work provides a model for distinguishing speciation via ecological differentiation of peripheral, narrowly endemic I. kuzinskyanae and I. littoralis from a widespread extant ancestor, I. linifolia, and gets away from the traditional cladistic perspective of speciation as producing two species from an extinct ancestor, reminding us that phylogenetic trees tell only part of the story.

TLDR
It is found that plants exhibit strikingly different age-range correlation patterns from those found for animals; the latter broadly support allopatric speciation as the primary mode of speciation.
Divergence at the edges: peripatric isolation in the montane spiny throated reed frog complex
TLDR
In this case study, peripatric speciation appears to be an important driver of diversity within the EABH biodiversity hotspot, implying it could be a significant speciation mechanism in highly fragmented ecosystems.
Progenitor‐derivative species pairs and plant speciation
TLDR
It is suggested that there are some advantages in focusing future studies on even earlier stages of divergence, in which speciation is not yet complete, and p and d populations can be identified.
PATTERNS OF PARAPATRIC SPECIATION
TLDR
This work performs large-scale, individual-based simulations using a simple model of reproductive isolation and shows that rapid parapatric speciation on the time scale of a few hundred to a few thousand generations is plausible even when neighboring subpopulations exchange several individuals each generation.
Speciation and phylogeography of Hawaiian terrestrial arthropods

An Adaptive Radiation of Hawaiian Thomisidae: Biogeographic and Genetic Evidence
TLDR
A phylogenetic hypothesis was constructed based on genetic distances between the Hawaiian thomisids and various outgroups using a 450 bp region of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I (COI) gene to test for close genetic relationships, and results support the existence of a Hawaiian Thomisid adaptive radiation.
Peripatric speciation in an endemic Macaronesian plant after recent divergence from a widespread relative
TLDR
A recent peripatric speciation of S. lowei is supported, a taxon that differs morphologically and genetically at the nDNA level from its closest relative, S. arguta, from the closest Macaronesian populations of that species.
GEOGRAPHICAL CONTEXT OF SPECIATION IN A RADIATION OF HAWAIIAN TETRAGNATHA SPIDERS (ARANEAE, TETRAGNATHIDAE)
TLDR
Results indicate that adaptive radiation frequently involves ecological divergence between sister taxa to allow multiple close relatives to co-occur in the same habitat, and that allopatry is clearly implicated in the initial divergence of taxa.
