Australian round herring (genus Etrumeus) contain cryptic evolutionary partitions concordant with biogeographic boundaries

Abstract

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.
