Animal Ethics

The following information was supplied relating to ethical approvals (i.e., approving body and any reference numbers):

Collecting methods have been approved by the ACUC of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute

Field Study Permissions

The following information was supplied relating to field study approvals (i.e., approving body and any reference numbers):

Secretaria de la Marina, Armada de la Republica de Mexico. Due to its proximity to mexican offshore oilfields Cayo Arcas is a restricted area; access to it and research activities there are subject to approval by the Mexican Navy, which did so in this case and provided logistical support (transport) to the island

DNA Deposition

The following information was supplied regarding the deposition of DNA sequences:

Genbank accession nos are provided in Supplementary Table S1. All sequences used have Genbank nos. listed, except two SAIAB sequences from the Seychelles. Those have been submitted by SAIAB to Genbank and are listed in Table S1 as pending. They will be included in Table S1 before publication. They are included here as a supplemental file: SAIAB Neopomacentrus cyanomos.

Funding

Barcoding at the Center for Biodiversity Genomics supported by the International Barcode of Life Project (iBOL.org) with funding from the Government of Canada via the Canadian Centre for DNA Barcoding, as well as from the Ontario Genomics Institute (2008-OGI-ICI-03), Genome Canada, the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development and Innovation, and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. Fieldwork in the SWGoMx was supported by a grant from the Harte Charitable Foundation to the Fundación de la Biodiversidad Marina de Yucatan. Laboratory work at UMSNH was supported by Cordinación de la Investigación Cinetifica-UMSNH. The funders had no role in study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript.
