  journal={Journal of Ichthyology},
Molecular-genetic study of Pholidae of the suborder Zoarcoidei was first performed. Analysis of variation of genes of COI, cytochrome b, and 16S rRNA of mitochondrial DNA indicates different phylogenetic isolation of the family taxa. The groundlessness of separating subgenera (or genera) Enedrias and Allopholis and the rightfulness of including them in the composition of the genus Pholis are shown. Genetic close relation of the genera Pholis and Rhodymenichthys and their differences from the… Expand

Phylogenetic relationships of blennies of the family Pholidae (Perciformes: Zoarcoidei) using the results of molecular genetic analysis
It is proven that the idea to validate particular genera (or subgenera) Enedrias and Allopholis was fairly weak and they should be consid ered within the synonymy of the genus Pholis (Makushok, 1958). Expand
Genetic differentiation of species and taxonomic structure of the superfamily Stichaeoidea (Perciformes: Zoarcoidei)
These investigations suggest that the superfamily Stichaeoidea should include not only the families Sticaeidae, Pholidae, and Ptilichthyidae, but also the Zaproridae and Cryptacanthodidae, while the family Anarhichadidae should be excluded from it. Expand
Relationships and position of the taxa of the subfamily Xiphisterinae in the system of the suborder Zoarcoidei (Perciformes)
The genetic heterogeneity of Xiphisterinae and the propriety of its division into two subfamilies should be raised to the rank of a family and classified not within the superfamily Stichaeoidae but rather as independent taxa of the suborder Zoarcoidei. Expand
Molecular phylogenetic reconstruction and taxonomic investigation of eelpouts (Cottoidei: Zoarcales) based on Co-1 and Cyt-b mitochondrial genes
The monophyletic origin of the families Zoarcidae and Anarhichadidae, as well as Neozoarcidae, previously related to Stichaeidae and recently revised Eulophiidae are demonstrated and Opisthocentrinae and Pholidae seem to constitute a valid family-level taxon. Expand
Molecular phylogeny and new classification of the genera Eulophias and Zoarchias (PISCES, Zoarcoidei).
The phylogenetic analysis supported the monophyly of the suborder level of the Zoarcoidei, but rejected the previous morphology- and osteology-based classification hypotheses regarding the two genera Eulophias and Zoarchias. Expand
The taxonomic status and relationships of stichaeid fish of the Opisthocentrus, Pholidapus, and Askoldia Genera (Perciformes: Stichaeidae)
Morphological and genetic differences could not allow one to consider the Pholidapus as being within the Opisthocentrus, and the greater similarity of the former with the Askoldia was revealed. Expand
Relationships and position of wrymouths of the family cryptacanthodidae in the system of the suborder Zoarcoidei (Pisces, Perciformes)
The opinion of Makushok on a phylogenetically distinct position of wrymouths in relation to snake blennies and related families is not supported and the anatomical features of skull structure support the data of molecular genetics. Expand
Osteology of the crescent gunnel Pholis laeta and the phylogeny of the family Pholidae (Cottiformes, Zoarcoidei).
This study provides a complete description of the osteology of the crescent gunnel Pholis laeta based on cleared-and-stained specimens and X-rays to help provide sufficient morphological data toExpand
Ichthyofauna of fresh and brackish waters of Sakhalin Island: An annotated list with taxonomic comments: 2. Cyprinidae–Salmonidae families
The second part of the work is a continuation of the annotated list of fish species found in fresh-water and coastal brackish waters of Sakhalin Island: 58 species belonging to five ordersExpand


Relationships and divergence of some taxa of the subfamily Lycodinae (Zoarcidae, Pisces) based on molecular-genetic and morphological data
The problem of determination of the time of divergence of the studied zoarcid-like fish using the concept of “molecular clock” and its calibration according to paleontological and paleogeographic data is discussed. Expand
Phylogeny of the family Pholididae (Blennioidei) with a redescription ofPholis scopoli
A cladistic analysis of Pholididae was made on the basis of morphological characters and of color of all 14 species, finding that Allopholis andPholis are sister groups. Expand
Relationships among several species of the subfamily Gymnelinae (Zoarcidae) inferred from mitochondrial DNA sequence analysis
Comparison of this species with other representatives of the subfamily Gymnelinae revealed high genetic similarity of M. skopetsi to Hadropareia middendorffii and considerable differences between these species and Gymnelopsis ochotensis. Expand
Distribution, morphological variation, and systematic relationship of Pholis laeta and P. ornata (Pisces: Pholididae) with a description of the related form P. nea n. sp.
A population in northern Japan is distinguishable and described here as the new species Pholis nea, which is relatively uniform between populations except for the north–south cline of median counts typical of many North Pacific fishes. Expand
Pholis (Enedrias) crassispina (Pisces: Pholidae) from the northwestern part of the Sea of Japan-the first reliable record for Russia, with remarks on the species composition of the family Pholidae in this region
The gunnel Pholis (Enedrias) crassispina (Temminck et Schlegel, 1845) from Vostok Bay (the northwestern part of the Sea of Japan) is reported as new for Russia. A detailed description of the examinedExpand
Major patterns of higher teleostean phylogenies: a new perspective based on 100 complete mitochondrial DNA sequences.
Many unexpected, but highly supported relationships were found within the Percomorpha, being highly promising for the next investigative step towards resolution of this remarkably diversified group of teleosts. Expand
Development of larval and early juvenile penpoint gunnel (Apodichthys flavidus) (family: Pholidae)
The penpoint gunnel (Apodichthys flavidus) is one of the largest pholids and is important in the live fish trade for both home and public aquaria (Froese and Pauly2). Expand
DNA barcoding of Pacific Canada’s fishes
The present study shows that most fish species in Pacific Canadian waters correspond to a single, tightly cohesive array of barcode sequences that are distinct from those of any other species, but also highlights some taxonomic issues that need further investigation. Expand
Nearshore fish (Pholis gunnellus) persists across the North Atlantic through multiple glacial episodes
Although the ecological flexibility and high local migration of P. gunnellus could have enhanced this species’ survival across the Atlantic, logistic regression did not find a significant determinant of trans‐Atlantic persistence when considering 12 other North Atlantic phylogeographical studies from the literature.
