We investigated the phylogenetic relationships of South and Central Accepted 25 April 2016 American Poecilia, by examining 2395 base pairs of mitochondrial DNA (ATPase 8/6, COI) and nuclear Available online 26 April 2016 DNA (S7) for 18 species across six subgenera. Fifty-eight novel sequences were acquired from newly col- lected specimens and 20 sequences were obtained from previously published material. Analyses of con- Keywords: catenated and partitioned mitochondrial DNA and nuclear DNA sets resulted in a well-supported Poeciliidae phylogeny
