Aetomylaeus nichofii (Bloch & Schneider, 1801)


Aetomylaeus nichofii (Bloch & Schneider, 1801)  

Type locality: East Indies ( Indonesia).

The three Taiwan samples of A. nichofii   included in this analysis formed a single cluster that includes previously collected samples of this species from Indonesian and Malaysian Borneo (Supplementary Material 1; Naylor et al., 2012 a). This clade was sister to the A. cf. nichofii   1 (sensu Naylor et al., 2012 a) clade, which comprises a single sample from Iran in the northwestern Indian Ocean. Taxonomic revision of this species complex is currently underway to resolve how many distinct species comprise this complex.
