A phylogenomic framework for pelagiarian fishes (Acanthomorpha: Percomorpha) highlights mosaic radiation in the open ocean

A novel sequence dataset of over 1000 ultraconserved DNA elements for 94 of the 286 species of Pelagiaria provides a time-calibrated phylogeny for this widely distributed clade, indicating a mosaic model of diversification.

The South American and Australian percichthyids and perciliids. What is new about them?

A phylogenetic analysis based on 54 morphological characters suggests the existence of two major clades, but molecular and mitogenomic evidence suggests only one clade (Percichthyidae), with the exclusion of species of Macquaria (= Percalates).

A taxonomic revision of Cheilodactylidae and Latridae (Centrarchiformes: Cirrhitoidei) using morphological and genomic characters.

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.

Molecular systematics of threadfin breams and relatives (Teleostei, Nemipteridae)

Several currently recognized species contain multiple separately evolving metapopulation lineages within species; some lineages should be considered as new species for further assignment.

Morphological evidence supporting the monophyly of the family Polynemidae (Teleostei: Perciformes) and its sister relationship with Sciaenidae

The monophyly of Polynemidae was evaluated and its sister relationship with Sciaenidae discussed, based on osteological and myological characters from 24 polynemid species in eight genera, with

The Phylogeny of Carangiform Fishes: Morphological and Genomic Investigations of a New Fish Clade

Combined analyses of new and previously identified discrete morphological characters and new andPreviously published genome-scale data are performed to characterize the evolutionary history and anatomical variation within this clade of fishes.

Molecular phylogeny of the threadfin fishes (Polynemidae) using ultraconserved elements.

A genomic dataset of ultraconserved-element and mitochondrial loci is analysed to construct a phylogeny of the Polynemidae and recovers the threadfins as a clade sister to flatfishes, with the most taxonomically rich genus, Polydactylus, being resolved as polyphyletic.

Explosive diversification of marine fishes at the Cretaceous–Palaeogene boundary

This work uses targeted enrichment of >1,000 ultraconserved elements in conjunction with a divergence time analysis to resolve relationships among 120 major acanthomorph lineages and provide a new timescale for acanthomorphic radiation in the wake of the K–Pg boundary.



Evolutionary Origin of the Scombridae (Tunas and Mackerels): Members of a Paleogene Adaptive Radiation with 14 Other Pelagic Fish Families

A clade of open-ocean fishes containing Scombridae is named “Pelagia” in reference to the common habitat preference that links the 15 families, suggesting that they represent a previously undetected adaptive radiation in the pelagic realm.

Phylogenetic relationships of the Sparidae (Teleostei: Percoidei) and implications for convergent trophic evolution

The phylogeny supports multiple independent origins of trophic types and it is suggested that the evolutionary plasticity of the oral teeth of sparids has been fundamental to the adaptive radiation of this family compared to their closest allies.

Casting the Percomorph Net Widely: The Importance of Broad Taxonomic Sampling in the Search for the Placement of Serranid and Percid Fishes

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.

Mitogenomic evaluation of the unique facial nerve pattern as a phylogenetic marker within the percifom fishes (Teleostei: Percomorpha).

The evolution of pharyngognathy: a phylogenetic and functional appraisal of the pharyngeal jaw key innovation in labroid fishes and beyond.

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.

Molecular phylogeny of grunts (Teleostei, Haemulidae), with an emphasis on the ecology, evolution, and speciation history of New World species

This study provides a new hypothesis for the sister clade of Hamulidae and a robust phylogeny of Haemulinae based on the combined data of two nuclear and three mitochondrial genes and illustrates how life history habitat influences speciation and evolutionary trajectories.

Are flatfishes (Pleuronectiformes) monophyletic?
