Phylogeny of the gudgeons (Teleostei: Cyprinidae: Gobioninae).

Limits and phylogenetic relationships of East Asian fishes in the subfamily Oxygastrinae (Teleostei: Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae).

The cyprinid subfamily Oxygastrinae is composed of a diverse group of fishes that has been taxonomically and phylogenetically problematic. Their great variation in appearance, life histories, and

Systematics of Damselfishes

The phylogenetic relationships of the damselfishes are examined herein using sequence data from five mitochondrial and three nuclear loci to reconstruct the phylogeny of pomacentrids via maximum likelihood, corroborating some conclusions drawn by recent studies but contradicting others.

Systematic evaluation of the genus Alburnus (Cyprinidae) with description of a new species

The main objective of this research was to assess phylogenetic relationships of the genus Alburnus and solve taxonomic uncertainties and suggest multiple synonymies within the genus and the addition of a new species, AlBurnus kurui sp.

Molecular Phylogeny of the Opsariichthys Group (Teleostei: Cypriniformes) Based On Complete Mitochondrial Genomes.

Tree topologies show that a monophyletic group containing Parazacco, Candidia, Nipponocypris, Zacco, and Opsariichthys should belong to the Opsariicthys group, and strongly support that Candidia and NIPPonocy Pris should be regarded as distinct genera within the opsariichthyinae group.

Miniatures, morphology and molecules: Paedocypris and its phylogenetic position (Teleostei, Cypriniformes)

Morphological data suggest that Paedocypris and Danionella are sister genera, and that their closest relative is Sundadanio, although the position of these three miniatures among cyprinoids is still unclear.

Molecular Phylogeny and Conservation Priorities of the Subfamily Acheilognathinae (Teleostei: Cyprinidae)

A more detailed species-level phylogenetic tree of the Acheilognathinae is reconstructed, and species conservation priorities based on their evolutionary distinctiveness are assessed, suggesting T. longipinnis should be ranked as the top-priority species for conservation.



Molecular phylogenetic interrelationships of the south Asian cyprinid genera Danio, Devario and Microrasbora (Teleostei, Cyprinidae, Danioninae)

Analysis of mitochondrial cytochrome b sequences from 159 species of the family Cyprinidae supports the subfamily Danioninae, of which Rasborinae is shown to be a junior synonym, and phylogenetic distinctness of Danio and Devario is supported.

Comparative osteology of the Danio (Cyprinidae: Ostariophysi) axial skeleton with comments on Danio relationships based on molecules and morphology

The axial skeleton of Danio exhibits 14 characters that prove useful in phylogenetic analysis and both molecular and morphological data support the monophyly of the danios included in this analysis.

Phylogenetic Analysis of the Asian Cyprinid Genus Danio (Teleostei, Cyprinidae)

It is shown that Danio, as recognized until now, is paraphyletic, and the well-known genus Brachydanio becomes a junior synonym of Danio (sensu stricto), and the phylogenetic relationships of small Danio-like species Sundadanio axelrodi, Danionella translucida, Danio erythromicron, and Microrasbora rubescens remain unresolved.

Phylogenetic relationships of Danio within the order Cypriniformes: a framework for comparative and evolutionary studies of a model species.

A molecular evaluation of the phylogenetic placement of the model species Danio rerio within the genus Danio and among hypothesized closely related species and genera is provided.

The Phylogenetic Relationships of the Gobioninae (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) Inferred from Mitochondrial Cytochrome b Gene Sequences

This work uses complete mitochondrial cytochrome b gene sequences from most genera within the gobionine group, in addition to a selection of cyprinid outgroups, to investigate the possible monophyly of this group and resolve the interrelationships within the group.


Comparative skeletal studies of 92 species belonging to 76 genera of Cyprinidae were made and 25 characters associated with their differentiation were used for comparison with the homologous

Molecular phylogenetic relationships of Eastern Asian Cyprinidae (Pisces: Cypriniformes) inferred from cytochrome b sequences

Phylogenetic trees were generated using various tree-building methods, supporting some existing subfamilies within Cyprinidae as monophyletic, such as Cultrinae, Xenocyprinae and Gobioninae (including Gobiobotinae), however, genera within the subfamily “Danioninee” did not form a monophylettic group.
