Molecular phylogeny and morphological revision of the Ctenotus labillardieri (Reptilia: Squamata: Scincidae) species group and a new species of immediate conservation concern in the southwestern Australian biodiversity hotspot

Kay, Geoffrey; Keogh, J Scott

Description

Ctenotus is the largest and most diverse genus of skinks in Australia with at least 97 described species. We generated large mitochondrial and nuclear DNA data sets for 70 individuals representing all available species in the C. labillardieri speciesgroup to produce the first comprehensive phylogeny for this clade. The widespread C. labillardieri was sampled extensively to provide the first detailed phylogeographic data set for a reptile in the southwestern Australian biodiversity hotspot. We...[Show more]
