A new paper involving Environment Institute members Rachael King (also SA Museum), Tessa Bradford (also CSIRO Land & Water), Andrew Austin and Steven Cooper (also SA Museum) as well as William Humphreys (WA Museum and University of Western Australia) has recently been published in the Journal of Crustacean Biology.

The paper, titled ‘Divergent molecular lineages and not-so-cryptic species: the first descriptions of stygobitic chiltoniid amphipods (Talitroidea: Chiltoniidae) from Western Australia’ uses results from a recent fine-scale biodiversity initiative and details the subsequent systematic analysis of COI lineages, presenting a broader phylogeny and detailed morphological analyses of the lineages.
