Molecular identification of Mazama species (Cervidae: Artiodactyla) from natural history collections

Abstract: Natural history museum collections constitute an invaluable patrimony of biological diversity for analysing the taxa distribution and evolution. However, it is very common to discover taxonomic misidentification in museum collections based on incorrect data. The aim of this research was to identify brocket deer species (Mazama genus) using molecular markers. We collected 199 samples, performed DNA extraction and species identification using a specific mitochondrial marker based on a fragment of cytochrome b (C… Show more

“…The detailed analysis of deposited specimens using a post hoc approach to compare the M. americana genetic lineages may contribute to the identification of diagnostic characters. This type of analysis is also called “reverse taxonomy” ( Markmann and Tautz, 2005 ) and can be an interesting way to identify morphological differences, reinforce the delimitations observed by genetic data and organize scientific collections where a high primary identification error in their Mazama vouchers have been observed ( Michaloudi et al, 2018 ; Mantellatto et al, 2020 ).…”

“…SatII and satIV sequences of Mazama showed unresolved relationships both at the level of species differentiation as well as at the genus level. Incomplete lineage sorting of Mazama species with respect to other Neotropical deer consistently occurs in satellite DNA (this study), mtDNA phylogenies ( Figure S1 and [ 66 , 67 ]), and even with the molecular and morphological data combined [ 68 ]. Neotropical deer, as descendants of Nearctic ancestors that arrived to South America during the Great America Biotic Interchange between late Miocene and late Pleistocene [ 69 ], diverged in an explosive radiation, forming morphologically well-defined but genetically unresolved genera.…”
