Validation and description of two new north-western Australian rainbow skinks with multispecies coalescent methods and morphology

Afonso Silva, Ana Catarina; Santos, Natali; Ogilvie, Huw; Moritz, Craig


While methods for genetic species delimitation have noticeably improved in the last decade, this remains a work in progress. Ideally, model based approaches should be applied and considered jointly with other lines of evidence, primarily morphology and geography, in an integrative taxonomy framework. Deep phylogeographic divergences have been reported for several species of Carlia skinks, but only for some eastern taxa have species boundaries been formally tested. The present study does this...[Show more]
