Williams, Jeffrey T. Phylogenetic Relationships and Revision of the Blenniid Fish Genus Scartichthys. Smithsonian Contributions to Zoology, number 492,30 pages, 20 figures, 4 tables, 1990.—Blenniid fishes of the genus Scartichthys Jordan and Evermann comprise a group of marine shore fishes restricted to the tropical and subtropical coasts of western Panama and western South America. Scartichthys comprises four species: S. crapulatus, new species (northern Chile and vicinity of Valparaiso), 5… 
Cirripectes matatakaro, a new species of combtooth blenny from the Central Pacific, illuminates the origins of the Hawaiian fish fauna
A molecular-phylogenetic analysis resolves many of the previously unresolved relationships within the genus Cirripectes and reveals C. matatakaro as the sister lineage to the Hawaiian C. vanderbilti.
Phylogeny of the Sand Stargazers (Dactyloscopidae: Blennioidei)
The phylogeny of dactyloscopids may be of broader interest in reconstructing familial ancestral character states in the analysis of blennioid evolution, and the low consistency index confirms the prevalence of homoplastic evolution within blenniaids.
Phylogenetic relationships of the north-eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean blenniids
The phylogenetic relationships of 27 north-eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean blennioids are analysed based on a total of 1001 bp from a combined fragment of the 12S and 16S mitochondrial rDNA. The
A prelude to the molecular systematics and diversity of combtooth blennies (Teleostei: Blenniidae) in the Persian Gulf and Oman Sea
A COI reference database for intertidal combtooth blennies (Blenniidae) is established and the results of the first molecular taxonomic inventory of this group along the northern coasts of the Persian Gulf and Oman Sea are documented.
A multilocus molecular phylogeny of combtooth blennies (Percomorpha: Blennioidei: Blenniidae): multiple invasions of intertidal habitats.
This phylogeny redefines the taxonomy of the group and supports the use of 13 unranked clades for the classification of blenniids, and provides strong evidence that the traditional rank-based classification does not adequately delimit monophyletic groups with the Blenniidae.
A new species of Hemipera Nicoll, 1913 (Digenea: Derogenidae) from fishes of the intertidal rocky zone of Chile
A new species, Hemipera cribbi sp. nov., is described. This trematode was found in three intertidal fish species: Scartichthys viridis (Valenciennes) (Blenniidae), Gobiesox marmoratus Jenyns
Phylogeny and biogeography of a shallow water fish clade (Teleostei: Blenniiformes)
The first comprehensive phylogenetic hypothesis for a monophyletic Labrisomidae with five tribes is presented and global distributions of blenny genera included in the analysis support the evolution of a largely Neotropical clade whose closest relatives are temperate in distribution.
Two new species of digeneans (Lecithasteridae and Haploporidae) of the intertidal blenny Scartichthys viridis (Valenciennes) from the central coast of Chile
Describing species of Monorchimacradena and Megasolena in Chilean waters, here reported for the first time off the Pacific Coast of South America, indicated that it was invariant within the species.
Meiacanthus urostigma, a New Fangblenny from the Northeastern Indian Ocean, with Discussion and Examples of Mimicry in Species of Meiacanthus (Teleostei: Blenniidae: Nemophini).
The new species Meiacanthus urostigma, new species, is described from the Surin Islands and northern Sumatra, which appears to be a localized area of endemism, attributable to glacial sea-level lowering events.
Larvae of Enchelyurus ater (Günther, 1877) and E. kraussi (Klunzinger, 1871) (Pisces: Blenniidae: Omobranchini)
Larval characters suggest the hypothesis that E. ater is the sister species to E. brunneolus, and E. kraussi is the sibling species to the other two, and are a monophyletic group with unknown sister-species relationships.
