Micropterus †sp. B was originally identified as M. cf. 16). The fossils were collected in the same formation as Pomoxis †sp. and Lepomis †sp. B and date to 12 mya (Wilson 1968). Micropterus †sp. C. 5 mya (Smith 1962; Tedford et al . 2004). In addition to A. interruptus discussed earlier, there are at least six extant centrarchid species present in the fossil record. 4 mya (Bell et al . 2004). These two formations combined contain fossil specimens of Ambloplites rupestris, L. cyanellus, and L. humilis.

The trees were used to study the ontogenetic criterion in phylogenetics, asking if an ontogenetic series for a particular character provided a reasonable method to polarize the character in a phylogenetic analysis (Mabee 1989, 1993). From our own reanalysis of the data matrix and other published analyses of this dataset (Mabee 1993; Patterson 1996), it is clear that parsimony analysis using outgroup rooting results in hundreds (if not thousands) of most parsimonious trees. 26b). Despite the seemingly arbitrary nature of the selection of this tree, the strict consensus of the most parsimonious trees is quite well resolved (see Patterson 1996, Figure 1a), and is completely resolute with regard to the details of the phylogenetic relationships discussed in this review.

P. henshalli haplotypes cluster together exclusive of the paraphyletic M. 28b). Even if mtDNA introgression is obscuring the true phylogeny of M. henshalli, it is apparent that it is quite distinct from M. 28b) and exhibits substantial morphological divergence (Gilbert 1973). Complete coding sequences from the mtDNA cytb gene were used to examine intraspecific and interspecific relationships of Lepomis species (Harris et al . 2005). All species in the clade, except the very recently elevated L. peltastes, were sampled and multiple individuals were included from each sampled species.
