A high fraction of undescribed diversity is expected in this region, especially in groups such as reptiles. Maghreb Here we used mitochondrial (12S, 16S, cytb) and nuclear (pomc, rag2, cmos) markers and morphological data to Cryptic diversity investigate phyletic diversiﬁcation and phylogeographical structure in the amphisbaenian Trogonophis wiegmanni Fossorial reptiles endemic to the Maghreb.
