Just out @ Royal Society Open Science Transoceanic origin of microendemic and flightless New Caledonian weevils Author(s) Emmanuel F. A. Toussaint, Rene Tänzler, Michael Balke, Alexander Riedel Abstract: The origin of the astonishing New Caledonian biota continues to fuel a heated debate among advocates of a Gondwanan relict scenario and defenders of late oceanic dispersal. Here, we study the origin of New Caledonian Trigonopterus flightless weevils using a multimarker molecular phylogeny.
