Phylogeny of the family Congiopodidae (Perciformes: Scorpaenoidea), with a proposal of new classification

  title={Phylogeny of the family Congiopodidae (Perciformes: Scorpaenoidea), with a proposal of new classification},
  author={Nozomi Ishii and Hisashi Imamura},
  journal={Ichthyological Research},
The phylogenetic relationships of the family Congiopodidae are inferred based on morphological characters. The monophyly of this family is supported by 13 unambiguous apomorphic characters, including four autapomorphies among the superfamily Scorpaenoidea. The Congiopodidae shares 26 apomorphic characters with other scorpaenoid taxa, and these characters are considered to also support the monophyly of the family. Upon completion of the phylogenetic analysis using the characters in 39… CONTINUE READING
