Phylogenetics of Planipapillus , Lawn-Headed Onychophorans of the Australian Alps, Based on Nuclear and Mitochondrial Gene Sequences

Rockman, Matthew; Rowell, David M; Tait, Noel


We addressed phylogenetic relationships among species of Planipapillus, a clade of oviparous onychophorans from southeastern mainland Australia, to create a framework for understanding the evolution of the modified male head papillae used in mating in this clade. We sequenced fragments of two mitochondrial genes, COI and 12S rRNA, and a nuclear intron from the fushi tarazu gene, for individuals from 14 putative species of Planipapillus and six outgroups. We analyzed these data under both...[Show more]
