ABSTRACT Highly repetitive DNA sequences were investigated in order to shed light on evolutionary relationships in groups of Decapoda. The investigation emphasized the relationships Aeglidae― Anomura and between different species of Aegla. Analyses of molecular restriction and hybridization patterns (RP and HP, respectively) were used as experimental approaches. Highly repetitive restriction fragments obtained from species of Brachyura, Anomura, and Aeglidae were isolated and employed as molecular probes. Our results suggest that some highly repetitive DNA sequences are evolutionarily conserved among Caridea, Brachyura, and Anomura. Moreover, a 400-bp band appears to be conserved among Aeglidae, since it was exhibited by all species studied. Relative quantification of the 400-bp band showed that it is highly conserved in these species.
