Incomplete knowledge of biodiversity remains a stumbling block for conservation planning and even occurs within globally important Biodiversity Hotspots (BH). Although technical advances have boosted the power of molecular biodiversity assessments, the link between DNA sequences and species and the analytics to discriminate entities remain crucial. Here, we present an analysis of the first DNA barcode library for the freshwater fish fauna of the Mediterranean BH (526 spp.), with virtually… 
DNA barcoding the ichthyofauna of the Yangtze River: Insights from the molecular inventory of a mega‐diverse temperate fauna
TLDR
A large‐scale campaign to DNA barcode YR freshwater fishes that succeeded in producing 1,424 new DNA barcodes for 123 species and several cases of multiple OTUs confined to species boundaries were detected suggesting the presence of overlooked species.
Molecular diversity of Germany's freshwater fishes and lampreys assessed by DNA barcoding
TLDR
The number of potential alien species in Germany is increased from 14 to 21 and is therefore a valuable groundwork for further faunistic investigations.
Revisiting the ichthyodiversity of Java and Bali through DNA barcodes: taxonomic coverage, identification accuracy, cryptic diversity and identification of exotic species
TLDR
The results highlight the poor taxonomic knowledge of this Javanese ichthyofauna and the apparent discrepancy between present and historical occurrence data is to be attributed to species extirpations, synonymy and misidentifications in previous studies.
The fish diversity in the upper reaches of the Salween River, Nujiang River, revealed by DNA barcoding
TLDR
This study DNA-barcoded 1139 specimens belonging to 46 morphologically distinct fish species distributed throughout the NR basin, establishing a reliable DNA barcode reference library for the fish in the NR and sheds new light on the local fish diversity.
DNA Barcoding and geographical scale effect: The problems of undersampling genetic diversity hotspots
TLDR
GMYC (General Mixed Yule Coalescent) single‐threshold model retrieved clusters constituted exclusively by Iberian haplotypes, some of which could correspond to cryptic species, which support GMYC as a key resource for species delimitation within poorly inventoried biogeographic regions in Europe.
DNA barcoding provides new insights on the distribution, systematics and conservation of the freshwater genus Pelasgus (Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae) in Greece
The freshwater ichthyofauna of Greece is characterized by high diversity and endemism and faces various conservation challenges. Despite significant efforts, mainly with traditional assessment
Status of DNA Barcoding Coverage for the Tropical Western Atlantic Shorefishes and Reef Fishes
TLDR
The reef fish fauna of the tropical western Atlantic now has the highest coverage for a large marine area, from about 80 to 90% depending on definitions and geographic limits.
Revisiting species boundaries and distribution ranges of Nemacheilus spp. (Cypriniformes: Nemacheilidae) and Rasbora spp. (Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae) in Java, Bali and Lombok through DNA barcodes: implications for conservation in a biodiversity hotspot
TLDR
Mitochondrial sequences argue that most species range distributions currently reported in the literature are inflated due to erroneous population assignments to the species level, and further highlight the sensitive conservation status of most Rasbora and Nemacheilus species on the islands of Java, Bali and Lombok.
Molecular diversity of Uzbekistan’s fishes assessed with DNA barcoding
TLDR
The barcode gap analysis demonstrated that 89.3% of the fish species examined could be discriminated by DNA barcoding, which provides new insights into fish diversity in the inland waters of Uzbekistan.
DNA barcode reference library for Iberian butterflies enables a continental-scale preview of potential cryptic diversity
TLDR
A survey of mitochondrial genetic diversity for the butterfly fauna of the Iberian Peninsula is presented with unprecedented resolution, suggesting that cryptic biodiversity may be higher than expected for one of the best-studied invertebrate groups and regions.

DNA barcoding at riverscape scales: assessing biodiversity among fishes of the genus Cottus (Teleostei) in northern Rocky Mountain streams
TLDR
It is demonstrated how intensive sampling efforts across a large geographical scale can influence identification of taxonomic units and suspected that genetic assessments based on spatially robust sampling designs will reveal previously unrecognized biodiversity in many other taxa.
Large‐scale species delimitation method for hyperdiverse groups
TLDR
The formalized strategy applied here outlines an effective and reproducible protocol for large‐scale species delimitation of hyperdiverse groups and identified 27 novel species hypotheses not linked to available species names in the literature.
Deep barcode divergence in Brazilian freshwater fishes: the case of the São Francisco River basin
TLDR
Reflecting possible cases of cryptic speciation and the deeper phylogeographic history of São Francisco fish fauna, with some higher clades extending back into the late Cretaceous and Cenozoic (90 mya), when much of the diversification of the Neotropical region apparently took place.
DNA barcoding the floras of biodiversity hotspots
TLDR
Analysis of >1,000 species of Mesoamerican orchids, DNA barcoding with matK alone reveals cryptic species and proves useful in identifying species listed in Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES) appendixes.
Factors affecting species delimitations with the GMYC model: insights from a butterfly survey
TLDR
The results demonstrate that this method is remarkably stable under a wide array of circumstances, including most phylogenetic reconstruction methods, high singleton presence (up to 95%), taxon richness and the presence of gaps in intraspecific sampling coverage (removal of intermediate haplotypes).
DNA barcodes discriminate freshwater fishes from the Paraíba do Sul River Basin, São Paulo, Brazil
TLDR
The results demonstrate the utility of barcoding to identify the fauna from this basin, contribute to an enhanced understanding of the differentiation among species, and to help flag the presence of overlooked species.
The Effect of Geographical Scale of Sampling on DNA Barcoding
TLDR
A CO1 data set of aquatic predaceous diving beetles of the tribe Agabini is presented and it is shown that even if samples are collected to maximize the geographical coverage, up to 70 individuals are required to sample 95% of intraspecific variation, showing that the geographical scale of sampling has a critical impact on the global application of DNA barcoding.
Genetic calibration of species diversity among North America's freshwater fishes
TLDR
It appears that the current North American freshwater fish taxonomy at the species level significantly conceals diversity in some groups, although artificially creating diversity in others, according to a survey of named species.
Speciation and DNA barcodes: testing the effects of dispersal on the formation of discrete sequence clusters
TLDR
Lineages from presumed stable habitats, and therefore displaying lower dispersal ability and migration rates, showed greater levels of mtDNA clustering and geographical subdivision than their close relatives inhabiting ephemeral habitats.
Can DNA barcoding accurately discriminate megadiverse Neotropical freshwater fish fauna?
TLDR
This study is the first to examine a large number of freshwater fish species from the Neotropical area, including alarge number of closely related species, and confirmed the efficacy of the barcoding methodology to identify a recently radiated, megadiverse fauna.
