Editor's comment The papers by Tëmkin (2010) and Cunha et al. (2011) were published about simultaneously and do not discuss each other's results. Tëmkin treated fucata and radiata as geographical subspecies of imbricata, whereas Cunha et al. presented a molecular tree that resolved them at the rank of species. This may be a result of the two papers using different markers: Tëmkin used 18S, 28S, 16S, and H3, whereas Cunha et al. used 18S and CO1. The matter is not fully resolved. [details]
