    Abstract

    Recent analyses of the tropical giant mottled eel Anguilla marmorata have suggested four to six populations within its Indo-Pacific distribution, including one represented by specimens from Guam, and that the population on Guam includes eels occurring in the eastern Caroline Islands based on morphological similarities. To test this hypothesis, sequences of the entire mitochondrial control region (mtCR) were obtained for 39 eels from Kosrae and Pohnpei, and compared to 267 previously sequenced haplotypes from across the Indo-Pacific Ocean. Results support recognition of two lineages distinctive for the eastern Caroline Islands and Guam, and the likelihood of an additional spawning area in the Indo-Pacific Ocean.
