Abstract

Multidisciplinary research on the cosmopolitan coccolithophore species Calcidis- cus leptoporus within the CODENET research project has revealed that it is com- posed of at least two separate species (Calcidiscus leptoporus and Calcidiscus quadriperforatus), characterized by differences in their coccolith morphology, life cycle, distribution, ecology and molecular genetics. This situation, which may be common in the coccolithophores, challenges our view of biodiversity and specia- tion in this important marine phytoplankton group, at the present day and in the past. Here we present an in-depth review of all available evidence for the exis- tence of hidden evolutionary biodiversity in extant C. leptoporus, including new and previously published data from CODENET research.
