By Donatella Crosetti, Stephen J. M. Blaber

Mullets (grey mullets) are a family members (Mugilidae) and order of ray-finned fish present in temperate and tropical waters around the world. There are nearly eighty species of mullet; those fish were thought of a massive meals resource in Mediterranean Europe considering the fact that Roman occasions. This booklet presents an extended late replace at the biology and ecology of mullets and contours accomplished insurance of the major beneficial properties of the Mugilidae family, akin to fresh DNA proof and morphological info that problem the conventional taxonomy.

Example text

However, its unique placement in the mitochondrial phylogenetic tree (Durand et al. 2012a) justifies the creation of the genus Parachelon (Durand et al. 2012b). Xia et al. (submitted, Fig. 1) confirmed this placement. Plotting 68 morphoanatomical traits on the molecular tree did not however, reveal any diagnostic traits (Xia et al. submitted). Nevertheless, Harrison and Howes (1991) noticed that the pharyngobranchial organ morphology of L. grandisquamis is more similar to species from other genera Crenimugil (C.

2012a,b, Xia et al. submitted) are in agreement with the taxonomy based on morphological and anatomical traits (Eschmeyer and Fong 2014). The Chaenomugil genus is monotypic and the brother genus of Mugil, inside the Mugilinae subfamily sensu Xia et al. (submitted, Fig. 1). In its subfamily, it is characterized by three diagnostic morpho-anatomical traits: edge of the lower lip permanently turned down, mouth corner reaching vertical from anterior nostrils or a little behind, first dorsal fin origin nearer caudal base than to snout tip (Thomson 1997, Xia et al.

16). Coast of Australia. All phylogenetic reconstructions (Durand et al. 2012a,b, Xia et al. submitted) demonstrate that Myxus elongatus, the type species of the genus Myxus, has no close phylogenetic relationships with any other Mugilidae species, especially not to Mugil capensis and Mugil petardi that previously were assigned to the same genus (Thomson 1997, Harrison and Senou 1997). Consequently, Myxus would be a monotypic genus, brother of the genus Neomyxus inside the Myxinae subfamily (Xia et al.
