  • Abstract The exclusively subterranean amphipod genus Bactrurus (Crangonyctidae) occurs in central and eastern parts of the United States. Bactrurus is characterized by morphologically similar species. In at least one instance, the distinction between separate species and geographic variants appears to be blurred. A sequence analysis of the small subunit (18S) rDNA gene was conducted for eight amphipod taxa. Both maximum likelihood and distance methods resulted in phylogenies for several species… CONTINUE READING
