Naylor et al. (2012a, 2012b) previously highlighted taxonomic complexity within this species, identifying 4 separate clades (GN3698 = N. kuhlii 1, GN3621 = N. kuhlii 2, GN2016 = N. kuhlii 3, and GN2093 = N. kuhlii 4, Naylor et al., 2012b). The six Taiwanese samples included in this analysis cluster with N. kuhlii 2 from Malaysia and Thailand ( Figure 9), further supporting the idea of cryptic diversity. Puckridge et al. (2013) also highlighted potential cryptic diversity within this species and included Taiwan samples (Clade 1 in this study). Clade 1 of Puckridge et al. (2013) included samples from Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam. The species complex is currently under revision.
