Molecular genetic surveys of marine fishes have revealed that some widely distributed species are actually a composite of multiple evolutionary lineages. This is apparent in the round herrings (genus Etrumeus), wherein a globally distributed taxon (Etrumeus sadina Mitchill 1814) has proven to contain at least seven valid taxa, with more likely awaiting discovery. Here, we survey evolutionary lin-eages of the nominal E. sadina (formerly E. teres, a junior synonym) across the southern temperate zone of australia, a marine region divided into three biogeographic provinces based primarily on the distribution of intertidal faunas.
