Four genetically distinct clades were recently described under the name Dendropoma petraeum, a Mediterranean endemic vermetid gastropod. The aim of this work is to date the processes that drove to the diversification within this taxon and to relate them to the corresponding historical events occurred in the Mediterranean Sea. Sequences from mitochondrial and nuclear markers were obtained from specimens collected in 29 localities spanning over 4000km across the entire distribution range of D… Expand
Potomida littoralis (Bivalvia, Unionidae) evolutionary history: slow evolution or recent speciation?
TLDR
The results suggest low levels of substitution and a pattern of ‘slow evolution’, probably linked to its long generation time and longevity, in the circum-Mediterranean freshwater mussels. Expand
Cryptic diversity in Mediterranean gastropods of the genus Aplus (Neogastropoda: Buccinidae)
Northeastern Atlantic and Mediterranean gastropods previously ascribed to the buccinid genus Pollia Gray, 1837 are more correctly classified in the genus Aplus de Gregorio, 1885. Using an integrativeExpand
Reef building Mediterranean vermetid gastropods: disentangling the Dendropoma petraeum species complex
TLDR
The present work redescribes this taxon under the older valid name D. cristatum, and describes the new species of this complex distributed in the western Mediterranean, which can be only distinguished on the basis of non-easily visible anatomical features. Expand
The Aegean Archipelago as cradle: divergence of the glaphyrid genus Pygopleurus and phylogeography of P. foina
The genus Pygopleurus includes some of the most important beetle pollinators of the Eastern Mediterranean islands, showing a particular affinity to red-guild flowers. Focussing on the AegeanExpand
Global biogeography, cryptic species and systematic issues in the shrimp genus Hippolyte Leach, 1814 (Decapoda: Caridea: Hippolytidae) by multimarker analyses
TLDR
A robust biogeographic scenario shows the Indo-West Pacific as the probable ancestral area of the genus Hippolyte, which emerged in the Paleocene, followed by dispersal in three general directions: (1) South Pacific, (2) eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea and (3) Americas. Expand
Global phylogeography of Oithona similis s.l. (Crustacea, Copepoda, Oithonidae) - A cosmopolitan plankton species or a complex of cryptic lineages?
TLDR
A phylogeographic study of Oithona similis s.l. populations from the Arctic Ocean, the Southern Ocean and its northern boundaries, the North Atlantic and the Mediterrranean Sea finds that the Arctic lineage was more closely related to lineages from the Southern hemisphere than to the other lineage from the Northern hemisphere, suggesting that geographic proximity is a rather poor predictor of how closely related the clades are on a genetic level. Expand
Cryptic lineages and high population genetic structure in the exploited marine snail Hexaplex trunculus (Gastropoda: Muricidae)
TLDR
The parapatric distribution still observed today suggests that human exploitation of this snail did not result in efficient introductions among basins, although present-day introductions were recently reported in the Bay of Biscay. Expand
Phylogeography of the mediterranean green seaweed Halimeda tuna (Ulvophyceae, Chlorophyta).
TLDR
The results represent the first clear evidence of an East-West genetic cleavage in a native Mediterranean macroalga and offer an interesting perspective for further research into fine-scale seaweed population structure in the NW Mediterranean Sea. Expand
Isolation of microsatellite loci for the endangered vermetid gastropod Dendropoma lebeche using Illumina MiSeq next generation sequencing technology
TLDR
The cross-species amplification of these microsatellite markers in the other three species of the complex, the Tyrrhenian–Sicilian lineage, D. anguliferum and Dendropoma sp. Expand

Hidden Mediterranean biodiversity: molecular evidence for a cryptic species complex within the reef building vermetid gastropod Dendropoma petraeum (Mollusca: Caenogastropoda)
TLDR
The reef building vermetid gastropod Dendropoma petraeum inhabits the warmest waters of the Mediterranean Sea and is considered a threatened marine species, and its genetic structure throughout its whole distribution range is characterized using mitochondrial and nuclear sequence data. Expand
Molecular phylogeny and biogeographic history of the European Maja spider crabs (Decapoda, Majidae).
TLDR
A well-resolved phylogenetic tree is recovered that supports a single origin for the European species, most likely from an Indo-West Pacific ancestor during the Early Miocene, and the genetic profile of South African crabs appears to belong to M. brachydactyla, questioning the validity of the putative species M. capensis. Expand
Salenthydrobia gen. nov. (Rissooidea: Hydrobiidae): a potential relict of the Messinian salinity crisis
TLDR
Ecological and biogeographical data for S. ferrerii strongly support a correlation between its origin and the MSC, and its phylogenetic relationships, and the validity of the proposed local molecular clock rate are discussed. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships elucidate colonization patterns in the intertidal grazers Osilinus Philippi, 1847 and Phorcus Risso, 1826 (Gastropoda: Trochidae) in the northeastern Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea.
TLDR
The phylogeny allows us to address biogeographical questions concerning the origins of the Mediterranean and Macaronesian species of this group, which appear to have evolved from Atlantic ancestors that invaded the Mediterranean on several occasions after the Zanclean Flood. Expand
Marine biogeographic boundaries and human introduction along the European coast revealed by phylogeography of the prawn Palaemon elegans.
TLDR
A phylogeographic analysis for the widely distributed European littoral prawn Palaemon elegans revealed a surprisingly complex population structure, with Type III represents the most distinct haplogroup with high levels of nucleotide divergence, indicating the occurrence of a cryptic species with a Messinian origin. Expand
Molecular phylogeography of two Italian sibling species of Calobius (Coleoptera, Hydraenidae, Ochthebiinae) inhabiting Mediterranean marine rock-pools
TLDR
The authors' analyses provided evidences of episodic species range expansion and fragmentation, recurrent “flush and crash” and bottleneck episodes probably occurring during the Glacial Cycles, and a strong association between the scored genetic variability and the geographical distribution of populations sampled for both species. Expand
Phylogeography of the Patelloida profunda group (Gastropoda: Lottidae): diversification in a dispersal‐driven marine system
TLDR
This work investigates phylogeographical patterns in the poorly dispersing, yet widely distributed Patelloida profunda group and related congeners across the Indo‐west Pacific region and discusses the difficulty in deriving biogeographical process or directionality from phylogenetic trees in dispersal‐driven systems. Expand
Historical colonization and demography of the Mediterranean damselfish, Chromis chromis
TLDR
The data suggested a western origin of C. chromis, most likely within the Mediterranean, with a genetic break at the Peloponnese, Greece, with directional and eastbound gene flow between western and eastern groups. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the crab genus Brachynotus (Brachyura: Varunidae) based on the 16S rRNA gene
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny based on the mitochondrial large subunit (16S) rRNA gene indicates that the four species of Brachynotus form a monophyletic group within Atlantic Varunidae. Expand
Pillars of Hercules: is the Atlantic–Mediterranean transition a phylogeographical break?
TLDR
Results point to a combined signature of vicariance, palaeoclimate fluctuation and life‐history traits on the Atlantic–Mediterranean phylogeographical patterns, suggesting organismal determinism may play a far less significant role than marine biogeographers have generally believed. Expand
