The major branches in the crocodylian tree were thought to be resolved until emerging molecular analyses indicated inconsistencies between morphological and molecular data. Notably, starting with Densmore (1983), molecular data favored a sistergroup relationship between the gharial (Gavialis gangeticus) and the false gharial (Tomistoma schlegelii). This was in stark contrast to the morphological data, which indicated that Gavialis was the sistergroup to all remaining extant crocodylians. The… CONTINUE READING
