PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF THE AMPHIPOD FAMILY BOGIDIELLIDAE S. LAT., AND REVISION OF TAXA ABOVE THE SPECIES LEVEL

PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF THE AMPHIPOD FAMILY BOGIDIELLIDAE S. LAT., AND REVISION OF TAXA ABOVE... Jan H. Stock Memorial Issue PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF THE AMPHIPOD FAMILY BOGIDIELLIDAE S. LAT., AND REVISION OF TAXA ABOVE THE SPECIES LEVEL BY STEFAN KOENEMANN and JOHN R. HOLSINGER Department of Biological Sciences, Old Dominion University, Norfolk, Virginia 23529-0266, U.S.A. ABSTRACT The increasing number of world-wide discoveries of subterranean amphipods, especially during the last two decades, has led to additions of numerous new taxa in the stygobiont family Bogidiel- lidae s. lat. To date, the family is composed of 23 genera and 11 subgenera, and approximately 110 described species. However, given the uneven quality of generic and subgeneric diagnoses in the literature, there is considerable confusion regarding the status of some of the taxa at these levels. Even the family itself lacks a clear de® nition. In order to gain a better knowledge of the phylogeny of this group, a cladistic analysis, employing both PAUP 3.0s and MacClade, was performed on the genera and subgenera currently assigned to the Bogidiellidae s. lat. Supported by the results of this analysis, the taxonomic structure of this group is completely revised above the species level. The revision excludes 5 genera from the family, all remaining subgenera are elevated to generic level. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Crustaceana Brill

Abstract

Jan H. Stock Memorial Issue PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF THE AMPHIPOD FAMILY BOGIDIELLIDAE S. LAT., AND REVISION OF TAXA ABOVE THE SPECIES LEVEL BY STEFAN KOENEMANN and JOHN R. HOLSINGER Department of Biological Sciences, Old Dominion University, Norfolk, Virginia 23529-0266, U.S.A. ABSTRACT The increasing number of world-wide discoveries of subterranean amphipods, especially during the last two decades, has led to additions of numerous new taxa in the stygobiont family Bogidiel- lidae s. lat. To date, the family is composed of 23 genera and 11 subgenera, and approximately 110 described species. However, given the uneven quality of generic and subgeneric diagnoses in the literature, there is considerable confusion regarding the status of some of the taxa at these levels. Even the family itself lacks a clear de® nition. In order to gain a better knowledge of the phylogeny of this group, a cladistic analysis, employing both PAUP 3.0s and MacClade, was performed on the genera and subgenera currently assigned to the Bogidiellidae s. lat. Supported by the results of this analysis, the taxonomic structure of this group is completely revised above the species level. The revision excludes 5 genera from the family, all remaining subgenera are elevated to generic level.
