Mito-nuclear discordance in West African mangrove crab species (Decapoda: Brachyura: Sesarmidae) suggests uni-directional mitochondrial introgression, despite prolonged evolutionary independence

Shahdadi, Adnan ; Mvogo Ndongo, Pierre A. ; Schubart, Christoph D.


Mitochondrial introgression is known as one of the major causes of misleading relationships and mito-nuclear discordance in phylogenetic analyses. It appears to be a quite widespread phenomenon in different animal taxa, with most records among vertebrates and insects. So far, in brachyuran crabs such reports of introgression are relatively infrequent. In the present study, we report such a case ...
