The viviparous sea snakes (Hydrophiini) are by far the most successful living marine reptiles, with ∼ 60 species that comprise a prominent component of shallow-water marine ecosystems throughout the Indo-West Pacific. Phylogenetically nested within the ∼ 100 species of terrestrial Australo-Melanesian elapids (Hydrophiinae), molecular timescales suggest that the Hydrophiini are also very young, perhaps only ∼ 8-13 Myr old. Here, we use likelihood-based analyses of combined phylogenetic and… CONTINUE READING
