ABSTRACT The western North American bivalve mollusc known as the Olympia oyster, long known as Ostrea lurida Carpenter 1864†, is a historically exploited native species that has been largely displaced by larger nonnative oysters. There is much renewed interest in documenting and restoring its native populations and recent successful culturing has attracted a specialty market for these oysters. Yet its name was called into question when it was synonymized with O. conchaphila Carpenter 1857, an… 
Phylogeny and Species Diversity of Gulf of California Oysters (Ostreidae) Inferred from Mitochondrial DNA*
TLDR
Olympic oyster surveys revealed at least six other co-occurring species, including two exotics, of Ostreidae Rafinesque, 1815 that were identified by sequencing 16S ribosomal DNA (16S) and cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI) mitochondrial markers, and phylogenetic analyses included OStreidae from worldwide localities available in GenBank.
Genetic analysis identifies the Ostrea stentina/aupouria/equestris oyster species complex in Hawai‘i, and resolves its lineage as the western Pacific O. equestris
TLDR
This study expands the known range of O. equestris by providing the first verification of its occurrence in Hawai’i by sequencing two partial gene fragments and placing Hawai‘i Ostrea alongside samples from China, Japan, and New Zealand.
Classification of Small Flat Oysters of Ostrea stentina Species Complex and a New Species Ostrea neostentina sp. nov. (Bivalvia: Ostreidae)
TLDR
Shell morphology and phylogenetic analyses identified four closely related groups in the Ostrea stentina/equestris/ aupouria species complex, supporting recent and ongoing speciation of small flat oysters.
Classification and Taxonomic Revision of Two Oyster Species from Peru: Ostrea megodon (Hanley, 1846) and Crassostrea talonata (Li & Qi, 1994)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of both sequences do not support the validity of the two genera that were solely founded on these two species, and Oyster U. megodon should retake its original name of Ostrea megodon and T. talonata should be renamed as Crassostrea talonATA.
Health Status of Olympia Oysters (Ostrea lurida) in British Columbia, Canada
ABSTRACT The Olympia oyster (Ostrea lurida) is the only oyster species native to British Columbia, Canada. Despite management regulations designed to protect this species, populations continue to
Molecular phylogenetics reveals first record and invasion of Saccostrea species in the Caribbean
TLDR
The results indicate that Crassostrea virginica, previously only reported from this region along the Yucatan Peninsula and coast of Venezuela, also occurs in the Caribbean waters of Panama, and document the first record for a species of Saccostrea, a genus native to the Pacific.
Revision shock in Pacific oysters taxonomy: the genus Magallana (formerly Crassostrea in part) is well-founded and necessary
TLDR
It is demonstrated that, while the criterion of ‘morphological diagnosability’ is not applicable at any level of oyster classification, several striking molecular phenotypes are diagnostic of Magallana, both at the nuclear and the mitochondrial genome level.
Mitochondrial DNA barcoding for Okinawan oysters: a cryptic population of the Portuguese oyster Crassostrea angulata in Japanese waters
TLDR
Analysis revealed the presence of a hitherto-unrecognized population of the Portuguese oyster Crassostrea angulata, a putative species closely related to the Pacific oyster C. gigas.
Identification of Saccostrea mordax and a New Species Saccostrea mordoides sp. nov. (Bivalvia: Ostreidae) from China
TLDR
Shell morphology of the new species is variable, as in other Saccostrea oysters, but distinctive in that shell height is similar to shell length with the right valve much smaller than the left valve and having undulate laminae.
Taxonomic Classification of Three Oyster (Ostreidae) Species from Myanmar
ABSTRACT Although oysters are important aquaculture and fishery species as well as keystone species in coastal and estuarine ecology, their global species diversity is not fully understood due to

Phylogeographic study of the dwarf oyster, Ostreola stentina, from Morocco, Portugal and Tunisia: evidence of a geographic disjunction with the closely related taxa, Ostrea aupouria and Ostreola equestris
TLDR
A sequence analysis of the 16S mitochondrial fragment and the COI fragment supported a high degree of differentiation between O. stentina and O. edulis and a close relationship between Ostreola in Ostrea and both Ostrea aupouria and OStreola equestris.
Morphological and mitochondrial-DNA analysis of the Indo-West Pacific rock oysters (Ostreidae: Saccostrea species)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses using partial mitochondrial 16S DNA sequences of approximately 513 base pairs identified two clades that correspond to superspecies, i.e. S. cucullata and S. mordax, comprising nine and two lineages from the Indo-West Pacific, respectively.
Molecular Evidence for Cryptic Species of Aurelia aurita (Cnidaria, Scyphozoa)
TLDR
Nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequence data indicate speciation events as early as the late Cretaceous or early Tertiary, consistent with the formation of well-recognized biogeographic barriers to gene flow in the seas.
Genetic evidence for the cryptic species pair, Lottia digitalis and Lottia austrodigitalis and microhabitat partitioning in sympatry
TLDR
Significant allele frequency differences were found at five enzyme loci between populations in Laguna Beach, southern California, and Bodega Bay, northern California; strongly supporting the existence of separate species of West Coast limpet, L. digitalis.
Reconstructing a radiation: the chiton genus Mopalia in the north Pacific
TLDR
The phylogenetic results indicate that most of the speciation events leading to extant species must have occurred along the western North American coast, though there appear to have been multiple spreading events across the Pacific.
ITS Length Polymorphism in Oysters and its Use in Species Identification
TLDR
The ITS assay provides simple, rapid and effective identification of C. ariakensis and several other oyster species, and may be useful in the identification of other bivalve species.
Postglacial recolonization and the biogeography of Palmaria mollis (Rhodophyta) along the Northeast Pacific coast
TLDR
It is concluded that this pattern does not represent a single postglacial recolonization event, and populations along the Northeast Pacific coast from northern Washington to southwestern Alaska, an area extensively glaciated during the last ice age, are sampled.
Molecular phylogeny of Eastern Pacific porcelain crabs, genera Petrolisthes and Pachycheles, based on the mtDNA 16S rDNA sequence: phylogeographic and systematic implications.
TLDR
The authors' phylogenetic trees indicate that the genus Petrolisthes is divided into two main clades, reflecting morphological features, and suggests an antitropical distribution; north and south temperate species form one clade and tropical species form a second clade.
Glacial vicariance in the Pacific Northwest: evidence from a lodgepole pine mitochondrial DNA minisatellite for multiple genetically distinct and widely separated refugia
TLDR
The results indicate the role of the Queen Charlotte Islands and the Alexander Archipelago as a refugial zone for some Pacific Northwest species and the vicariant role played by the Cascades and the American Rocky Mountains during glaciation.
SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY: A LATITUDINAL GRADIENT IN GENE FLOW IN THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT

TLDR
Analysis of original mitochondrial DNA data from 969 individuals representing 28 chiton (Mollusca: Polyplacophora) species reveals a distinct latitudinal connectivity gradient among chitons, which may contribute to the increased species diversity observed at lower latitudes.
