Because of their similar mor- Intraspeciﬁc diversity phology, variable color patterns, and tendency for interspecies hybridization, morphological identiﬁcation of Hybrid identiﬁcation groupers usually leads to taxonomic confusion. To ﬁnd an eﬀective method for identifying diﬀerent grouper RYR3 marker species and hybrids, evaluate genetic diversity and uncover any synonymous or cryptic species, we sampled a DNA barcoding total of 221 specimens representing 57 species in 9 genera in the China Seas. Both mitochondrial (mt) cyto- chrome oxidase subunit I (COI) and NADH dehydrogenase subunit 2 (ND2) were found to be eﬀective barcoding genes. We also developed an
