It is supported that Elopomorpha was the first basal group of teleost fish to have diverged, consistent with the prevailing view of recent morphological studies.

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.

New insights on early evolution of spiny-rayed fishes (Teleostei: Acanthomorpha)

This study provides new insights into the early evolution of the acanthomorphs and the euteleost allies based on the phylogenetic analysis of a newly developed dataset combining nine nuclear and mitochondrial gene markers, and largely agrees with other recent studies based on nuclear loci in inferring an Early Cretaceous origin for the ac anthomorphs followed by a Late Cret Jurassic/Early Paleogene radiation of major lineages.

Elopomorpha (Teleostei) as a New Model Fish Group for Evolutionary Biology and Comparative Genomics

This review proposes the Elopomorpha, the basal-most lineage, as a new model group in Teleostei and general background on the taxa as well as research progress on their evolution including the state of the art of phylogenetic and genomic hypotheses is presented.

Origins and relationships of the Pleuronectoidei: Molecular and morphological analysis of living and fossil taxa

A total evidence phylogeny that places fossil flatfishes among extant lineages is constructed and finds polyphyly or paraphyly of two flatfish families, the Paralichthyidae and the Rhombosoleidae, and supports the creation of two additional families to resolve their non‐monophyletic status.

Morphology and Species Composition of Southern Adriatic Sea Leptocephali Evaluated Using DNA Barcoding

DNA barcoding coupled with classical taxonomic methods allowed us to characterize a new species of Facciolella in the Adriatic Sea for the first time and revealed a lack of differentiation, at the species level, between G. mistax and G. bathytopos, a western Atlantic Ocean species.

Combined phylogeny of ray‐finned fishes (Actinopterygii) and the use of morphological characters in large‐scale analyses

This study evaluates the phylogeny of ray‐finned fishes (Actinopterygii) combining most available information (44 markers from nuclear and mitochondrial DNA and 274 morphological characters) to obtain synapomorphies and diagnoses for most clades.



Mitogenomic evidence for the monophyly of elopomorph fishes (Teleostei) and the evolutionary origin of the leptocephalus larva.

Phylogenetic relationships of elopomorph fishes inferred from mitochondrial ribosomal DNA sequences.

Phylogeny of suckers (Teleostei: Cypriniformes: Catostomidae): further evidence of relationships provided by the single-copy nuclear gene IRBP2

This study adds to previous investigations to identify single-copynuclear gene markers for diploid and polyploid cypriniforms, and to expand sequences of nuclear IRBP2 gene to 1,933 bp for 23 catostomid species, and synonymize the former three genera intothe latter genus.

A 28S rRNA-based phylogeny of the gnathostomes: first steps in the analysis of conflict and congruence with morphologically based cladograms.

In maximum parsimony trees, nodes congruent with those of the morphologically based cladogram were found to be robust (chondrichthyans, neopterygians, euteleosteans), but some expected monophyletic groups were not finding to be so (lissamphibians, tetrapods, osteichthyans).

Use of mitogenomic information in teleostean molecular phylogenetics: a tree-based exploration under the maximum-parsimony optimality criterion.

It is concluded that judicious choice of mitochondrial genes and appropriate data weighting, in conjunction with purposeful taxonomic sampling, are prerequisites for resolving higher-level relationships in teleosts under the maximum-parsimony optimality criterion.

The Phylogenetic Affinities of the Mysterious Anguilliform Genera Coloconger and Thalassenchelys as Supported by mTDNA Sequences

Results from parsimony and Bayesian phylogenetic analyses of mitochondrial ribosomal RNA sequences from a taxonomic sample designed to test alternative placements of colocongrids and Thalassenchelys among anguilliforms found no support for the three major angUilliform lineages that have been proposed based on morphology.

Basal actinopterygian relationships: a mitogenomic perspective on the phylogeny of the "ancient fish".

Remarkable teleostean fishes from the Late Jurassic of southern Germany and their phylogenetic relationships

The analysis of the elopiforms through time shows that the group had an important radiation during the Late Jurassic, to be replaced by new genera and species during the Cretaceous, and again During the Cenozoic.
