Phylogenetic position of the family Trichodontidae (Teleostei: Perciformes), with a revised classification of the perciform suborder Cottoidei

Abstract

The phylogenetic relationships of the family Trichodontidae and suborder Cottoidei (and zoarcoid Bathymasteridae) are reconstructed morphologically. The monophyly of the Trichodontidae, Cottoidei, and Zoarcoidei is unambiguously supported by 14 synapomorphies, including 1 newly recognized (and also 4 synapomorphies when ACCTRAN is accepted). It is assumed that the Trichodontidae is deeply nested within the Cottoidei, and the family and Cottoidea plus Cyclopteroidea have a sister relationship, supporting a previously inferred molecular phylogenetic hypothesis. We propose that the Trichodontidae is placed into the cottoid superfamily Trichodontoidea.
