Abstract

We analysed the DNA sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene for 49 specimens of the Western spadefoot toad, Pelobates cultripes, from Spain, and one sample from France, with a focus on populations from Galicia in northwestern Spain. Our results point to a generally low mitochondrial differentiation of the species across its distributional range although some phylogeographic structure was detected. Galician populations from coastal localities, from the A Limia region, and from Monforte appeared to be closely related, whereas the only available sample from the relict Galician population from near O Barco de Valdeorras has the same haplotype as the samples from Burgos, in central Spain.
