Genetic analysis gives a confusing picture of population/species structure
within and between anomalum and oligolepis, with phenotypic differences more
irregular than makes easy sense too. This is based on work done in Rick
Mayden's lab, both in Alabama and St. Louis, that I saw presented several
years ago at an ASIH meeting. There are different species within this group,
but the demarcations probably don't match traditional thinking as I
understand it.
