A molecular phylogenetic analysis with complete species sampling of the family Kyphosidae revealed several discrepancies with the current taxonomy. We thus undertook a complete taxonomic revision of all kyphosid genera, i.e. Kyphosus Lacepède, 1801, and the monotypic Hermosilla Jenkins and Evermann, 1889, Sectator Jordan and Evermann, 1903 and Neoscorpis Smith, 1931. Species delimitation was determined on the basis of congruence between (a) monophyletic groupings in the molecular phylogeny, and… 
Integrative taxonomy supports the presence of two species of Kyphosus (Perciformes: Kyphosidae) in Atlantic European waters
The specimens of Kyphosus vaigiensis represent a new record for the waters of Galicia and the northernmost record in the eastern Atlantic and could play an important role in the tropho-dynamic context of this temperate coastal ecosystem.
Enenterum kyphosi Yamaguti, 1970 and Enenterum petrae n. sp. (Digenea: Enenteridae) from kyphosid fishes (Centrarchiformes: Kyphosidae) collected in marine waters off eastern Australia
The first ITS2 and COI mtDNA gene sequences for species of Enenterum are provided and molecular phylogenetic analyses of 28S r DNA gene sequences place these species in a strongly-supported clade with the type-species of the genus, EnEnterum aureum Linton, 1910.
An additional record of Kyphosus vaigiensis (Quoy & Gaimard, 1825) (Osteichthyes, Kyphosidae) from Sicily clarifies the confused situation of the Mediterranean kyphosids.
The lowfin chub, Kyphosus vaigiensis, is reported for the first time off Favignana Island, Sicily, central Mediterranean Sea, on the basis of morphometric and meristic characters as well as mitochondrial DNA sequences.
Unusual occurrences of fishes along the Northeast Atlantic: new biological and distributional data
These include a new northernmost record of Remora osteochir and Decapterus tabl in the eastern Atlantic and the first records of Antigonia capros, Hyperoglyphe perciformis, Halobatrachus didactylus and Parapristipoma octolineatum from Galician waters.
Isolation and characterization of sixteen microsatellite loci for the rudderfish Kyphosus elegans (Centrarchiformes: Kyphosidae) from Easter Island, discovered with Next Generation Sequencing
The rudderfish of the genus Kyphosus inhabits rocky environments and coral reefs in warm waters worldwide and on Easter Island, K. elegans is an herbivorous species that feeds on macroalgae, such as Lobophora variegata and Sargassum and often occur in schools.
The herbivorous fish family Kyphosidae (Teleostei: Perciformes) represents a recent radiation from higher latitudes
Herbivorous reef fishes are considered to have difficulty digesting plant material at extratropical temperatures and are thus largely restricted to tropical waters where they are thought to have
Phylogenetic classification of bony fishes
This version of the phylogenetic classification of bony fishes is substantially improved, providing resolution for more taxa than previous versions, based on more densely sampled phylogenetic trees.
Theropod dinosaurs from the Middle Jurassic (Bajocian–Bathonian) of Skye, Scotland
The Isle of Skye, Scotland, has yielded a diverse Middle Jurassic terrestrial vertebrate fauna, but little is known about the predatory dinosaurs (theropods) occupying the top and secondary carnivore


Review of monophyly of the Kyphosidae (sensu Nelson, 1994), inferred from the mitochondrial ND2 gene
The group characterized by RLA pattern 10 formed a monophyletic group both in the NJ and ML trees here; however, additional basal perciform taxa need to be analyzed to resolve it more clearly.
Kyphosus gladius, a new species of sea chub from Western Australia (Teleostei: Kyphosidae), with comments on Segutilum klunzingeri Whitley.
Examination of museum specimens and available underwater photographs suggests that the new species is restricted to Western Australia, and to date it has been recorded between the Houtman Abrolhos Islands and Albany.
On the Occurrence of Kyphosus Sectator (Osteichthyes: Kyphosidae) in the Western Mediterranean
The capture of a single specimen of Kyphosus sectator (Osteichthyes: Kyphosidae) is reported from the island of Mallorca. It represents the first record of this species in the Balearic Sea (western
Larval development and relationships of the perciform family Dichistiidae (=Coracinidae), the galjoen fishes
Neither larval morphology and pigment, nor any other character examined offers support for a relationship between dichistiids and ephippidids or drepaneids, but a grouping of MSG+K families, Dichistiidae and Arripididae is congruent with larval characters.

Marine fishes from Galicia (NW Spain): an updated checklist
An annotated checklist of the marine fishes from Galician waters is presented and a total of 42 species have been included as new records for the study area, and 3 records have been identified as doubtful.
Taxonomic reviews of two Indo-Pacific sea chubs, Kyphosus cinerascens (Forsskål, 1775) and Kyphosus sydneyanus (Günther, 1886)
The closely related Indo-Pacific kyphosid fishes, Kyphosus cinerascens (Forsskål, 1775) and K. sydneyanus (Günther, 1886), are taxonomically reviewed and redescribed. The two species differed from
Comparison of herbivory in the closely-related marine fish genera Girella and Kyphosus
Results suggest that microbial fermentation plays a role in algal digestion in Kyphosus spp.
Two new species of Kyphosus (Kyphosidae) and a taxonomic review of Kyphosus bigibbus Lacepède from the Indo-Pacific
Two new species of Kyphosus, K. pacificus and K. hawaiiensis, are described and the taxonomy reviewed of K. bigibbus Lacepède, 1801, closely related to the former. These three species are clearly
