Phylogenetic relationships of the tribe Paini (Amphibia, Anura, Ranidae) based on partial sequences of mitochondrial 12s and 16s rRNA genes.
Partial sequences of mitochondrial 12S and 16S rRNA genes from 19 Asian frog species of the tribe Paini (Ranidae, Dicroglossinae) allowed a first molecular study of the phylogenetic relationships of this tribe. This analysis confirmed that this tribe is a monophyletic group, but suggested relationships did not agree with previous generic classification of this clade based on morphology. Two major clades were recognized within the Paini. For one of them, the generic name Quasipaa is available. Phylogenetic relationships within the other group are not yet fully clarified and need further study.
