Mitochondrial phylogenomics of anchovies (family Engraulidae) and recurrent origins of pronounced miniaturization in the order Clupeiformes.
Families with more species were Carangidae (10 spp), Gerreidae (4 spp), Engraulidae (3 spp) and Lutjanidae (3 spp).
This order is represented by seven families: Chirocentridae, Clupeidae, Denticipitidae, Dussumieriidae, Engraulidae, Pristigasteridae, and Sundasalangidae (Eschmeyer and Fong, 2017), and species are distributed in all continents (Malabarba et al., 2013) except Antarctica.
Extrusion was evident also among larvae of taxa in the families Engraulidae, Sciaenidae, and Scombridae, but less so for Clupeidae and Lutjanidae; the latter result was most likely attributable to a mismatch between the timing of sampling and spawning seasons.
