Notes on hemipenial morphology and its phylogenetic implications in the Pygopodidae Boulenger, 1884

Brennan, Ian; Bauer, Aaron M.

Description

The Pygopodidae is a near-endemic Australian family of limb-reduced, imbricately scaled gekkotans, currently comprising 44 species (43 in Australia, 2 in New Guinea). Phylogenetic studies of the Pygopodidae have enlisted molecular, morphometric, and osteological methods to resolve intergeneric and interspecific relationships, however, only one publication details the morphology of pygopodid hemipenes, providing data on four species from three genera. Here, we augment these initial observations,...[Show more]
