The Mitogenomics family Salamandridae, distributed across the entire Holarctic, is one of the most diverse groups of extant sala- Bayesian molecular dating manders comprising 114 species in 21 genera. The family has a remarkable diversity of courtship modes, am- Geographic range plexus and sperm transfer. It is often hypothesised that this diversity has evolved in adaptation to a speciﬁc Mating behaviour mating and/or breeding habitat. We test this hypothesis based upon a phylogenetic reconstruction using the Ancestral character state reconstruction complete mitochondrial genome sequences of 45 Salamandridae species, representing all existing genera. We Coevolution used ancestral character state reconstruction methods and geographic range models and applied relaxed Bayesian molecular clock models
