Abstract With more than 200 cyprinid genera, Phoxinus is the only genus of minnows with a Holarctic distribution. With ten described species, the genus has received only minimal attention with respect to their phylogenetic relationships, despite the broad distribution of the genus, the brilliant coloration of most species, and the frequency of species in cold-water stream ecosystems. Once recognized in three genera (Phoxinus, Chrosomus, Pfrille), monophyly of the genus has been questioned… 
Molecular systematics of western North American cyprinids (Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae)
The phylogenetic or evolutionary relationships of species of Cypriniformes, as well as their classification, is in a era of flux. For the first time ever, the Order, and constituent Families are
Phylogenetic evaluation of North American Leuciscidae (Actinopterygii: Cypriniformes: Cyprinoidea) as inferred from analyses of mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences
This study provides phylogenetic hypotheses for fishes of the North American Leuciscidae based on combined analyses of unlinked mitochondrial 12S and 16S ribosomal RNA and nuclear S7 (intron 1) and RAG1 (exon 3) sequences.
Minnows and molecules: resolving the broad and fine-scale evolutionary patterns of Cypriniformes
To provide robust support for relationships at various taxonomic levels within Cypriniformes, an anchored hybrid enrichment approach was used to resolve relationships and a revised, genus-level taxonomy for the group is presented.
Resolving Cypriniformes relationships using an anchored enrichment approach
Most major clades obtained in prior molecular studies were validated as monophyletic, and these relationships can be used as a framework for addressing a variety of evolutionary questions for which Cypriniformes is ideally suited.
Complete mitochondrial genome of Phoxinus tumensis (Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae)
The first complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of Phoxinus tumensis was determined, including 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes and 1 control region, and the control region was revealed to contain tandem repeats.
Biogeography and divergent patterns of body size disparification in North American minnows.


Phylogenetic relationships of the western North American phoxinins (Actinopterygii: Cyprinidae) as inferred from mitochondrial 12S and 16S ribosomal RNA sequences.
Parsimony analysis of the mitochondrial 12S and 16S rRNA sequences of North American phoxinin taxa indicated the existence of three major clades, the Western Clade, the Creek Chub Clade, and the Open
Phylogenetic and Taxonomic Relationships of Northern Far Eastern Phoxinin Minnows, Phoxinus and Rhynchocypris (Pisces, Cyprinidae), as Inferred from Allozyme and Mitochondrial 16S rRNA Sequence Analyses
Analyses of allozyme and partial mitochondrial DNA sequences support the classification of phoxinin minnows from the northern Far East into 2 genera of 8 species and Rhynchocypris forms a monophyletic cluster with dace genera Tribolodon and Pseudaspius, not with Phoxinus.
Molecular Evidence on the Evolutionary and Biogeographical Patterns of European Cyprinids
The existence of a Mediterranean realm independent of the central European route seems plausible based on the molecular evidence, and the new biogeographical scenario proposed here might apply to other primary freshwater European animals with low dispersal abilities, including fish, amphibians, and invertebrates.
Molecular phylogeny of Cyprinidae inferred from cytochrome b DNA sequences.
Phylogenetic relationships between European cyprinids were investigated by comparing cytochrome b gene sequences from 29 species, among which 20 were newly sequenced, in the first molecularly based study of cyPRinid diversity.
A molecular phylogeny of the Percidae (Teleostei, Perciformes) based on mitochondrial DNA sequence.
Phylogenetic relationships of Eurasian and American cyprinids using cytochrome b sequences
Improved understanding of historical and taxonomic relationships in Cyprinidae will require further morphological and molecular studies on Asian cyprinids and taxa representative of the diversity found in Africa.
A New Cyprinid of the Genus Phoxinus Endemic to the Upper Cumberland River Drainage
Ameca splendens, a new genus and species of goodeid fish from western Mexico, with remarks on the classification of the Goodeidae, is described.
New Dace of the Genus Phoxinus (Cyprinidae: Cypriniformes) from the Tennessee River Drainage, Tennessee
Phoxinus saylori appears to be very rare; it is currently known from only six localities on the Walden Ridge portion of the Cumberland Plateau and human activities such as agriculture and timbering threaten its future existence.
The bearing of Phoxinus (Cyprinidae) hybridity on the classification of its North American species.
Three populations of Phoxinus eos × P. neogaeus were found to form single Mendelian populations, by comparison with the parental species through a discriminant function. The hybrids of one of these
The distribution and mtDNA relationships among subspecies of Erimystax dissimilis are not consistent with Pleistocene vicariance, but relationships among Appalachian haplotypes are consistent with the late Pleistsocene integration of the modern Ohio River system.
