We investigated hellbender phylogeography through phylogenetic analyses of individuals sampled from 16 locations throughout their range in the eastern United States. Analyses were conducted on concatenated cytochrome-oxidase I (COI), cytochrome-b (Cytb) and NADH dehydrogenase subunit 4 (ND4) mtDNA sequence, totaling 2160 nucleotides. Hellbender haplotypes differed by 0.1 to 5.8% maximum likelihood (ML) corrected sequence divergence. Phylogenetic analyses reveal that hellbenders are separated… Expand
