Abstract

Based on the analysis of nucleotide sequences of mitochondrial (COI, cytochrome b, 16S rRNA genes) and nuclear (RNF213 and rhodopsin genes) molecular markers, we defined the levels of divergence, relationships, and structure of the superfamily Stichaeoidea of the suborder Zoarcoidei. The system of the superfamily based on morphological data that was offered by Makushok [6] is not confirmed by the molecular and genetic results. Our investigations suggest that the superfamily Stichaeoidea should include not only the families Stichaeidae, Pholidae, and Ptilichthyidae, but also the Zaproridae and Cryptacanthodidae, while the family Anarhichadidae should be excluded from it.
