Notothenioids are among the most intensively studied lineages of marine fishes. [] Key Result We find strong evidence that species of Bovichtus represent a recent evolutionary radiation with divergence times similar to those estimated among the most closely related species of cryonotothenioids. The divergence in traditional meristic trait morphology among species of Bovichtus is consistent with their phylogenetic relationships.

TLDR
The results shed light on the evolutionary path that underlies the origins of this remarkable gene structural modification in Cryonotothenioidea and identify its ancestral origins.

Identification of the notothenioid sister lineage illuminates the biogeographic history of an Antarctic adaptive radiation
TLDR
The phylogenetic resolution of Percophis requires a change in the classification of percomorph fishes and provides evidence for a western Weddellian origin of notothenioids, which highlights the importance of the geographic and climatic isolation of Antarctica in driving the radiation of cold-adapted nototenioids.
Mitochondrial phylogeny of notothenioids: a molecular approach to Antarctic fish evolution and biogeography.
TLDR
Molecular evidence suggests that vicariant speciation could be invoked to explain the early divergence of Eleginops maclovinus, a species previously included in the family Nototheniidae, which is now proposed as the closest sister group to all the rest of notothenioids apart from bovichtids.
Halaphritis platycephala (Notothenioidei: Bovichtidae): A New Genus and Species of Temperate Icefish from Southeastern Australia
TLDR
The endemic coexistence of possibly the two most primitive icefish genera in cool temperate Australian seas is supportive of a Gondwanan linkage, specifically an Australian/eastern Antarctic origin of the Notothenioid suborder.
Molecular ecophysiology of Antarctic notothenioid fishes.
TLDR
The formerly coherent paradigm of notothenioid freeze avoidance, developed from three decades of study of antifreeze glycoprotein (AFGP) based cold adaptation, now faces challenges stemming from the recent discovery of ant ifreeze-deficient, yet freeze-resistant, early notothensioid life stages and from definitive evidence that the liver is not the physiological source of AFGPs in nototenioid blood.
Gene flow by larval dispersal in the Antarctic notothenioid fish Gobionotothen gibberifrons
TLDR
The genetic population structure of the humped rockcod (Gobionotothen gibberifrons), a benthic notothenioid fish, is investigated to conclude that genetic differentiation is prevented by gene flow via larval dispersal with the ACC.
Molecular data support the existence of two species of the Antarctic fish genus Cryodraco (Channichthyidae)
TLDR
The authors' analyses show that C. atkinsoni and C. antarcticus are recently diverged sister lineages, and the two species differ with regard to patterns of population structure.

TLDR
Using information from the fossil record and time calibrated molecular phylogenies, this work investigates the history of lineage diversification in Polypteridae, which is the sister lineage of all other ray‐finned fishes (Actinopterygii), and demonstrates polypterids are exceptionally species depauperate with a stem lineage duration that exceeds 380 million years.
