This family was represented by four species, which exhibited a between-group mean distance of 5.23 ± 0.43%. Mobula japanica and Mobula thurstoni formed distinct clusters, but M. kuhlii and M. eregoodootenke clustered together ( Fig. 2 View Figure 2 ). The latter two species are morphologically distinct ( Fig. 7 View Figure 7 ) but they exhibited a very low between-group mean distance ( Table 3). Naylor et al. (2012) did not include M. eregoodootenke in their study, but the M. kuhlii / M. eregoodootenke specimens from the present study clustered with their M. kuhlii specimens. The former two species clustered with the relevant taxa.
