Cytochrome b and 16S rRNA sequences of various teleost lineages whose geographic distributions may have resulted from the closures of the Central American, Indonesian and Tethyan seaways, or from continental break-up and spreading of the Atlantic Ocean. Pairwise Kimura 2-Parameter distances between lineages were plotted in Fig. 3.
