On the occasion, zoology department Chairman Dr Muhammad Tahir said DNA barcoding was a powerful tool for differentiating cryptic species, testing food authenticity, identifying parasites, vectors, insect pests, predators, monitoring illegal trade of animals, plants, their products and collecting forensic evidences.

Due to the complexities of morphological characters used in traditional taxonomy and taxonomic confusion as well as cryptic species has arisen in Platycephalus concerning the nomenclature (Imamura, 2006, 2008, 2012, 2013a, 2013b, 2015; Imamura et al.
The mitochondrial genomes of the zoonotic canine filarial parasites Dirofilaria (Nochtiella) repens and Candidatus Dirofilaria (Nochtiella) hongkongensis provide evidence for presence of cryptic species.
Among the changes in the study of Pacific seaweed since the first edition, says Cruehl and Clarkston, are the Kelp Highway Hypothesis of how humans came to the Americas, the discovery of a deepwater tropical kelp ecosystem that is yet to be described, molecular analysis realigning the understanding of seaweed evolutionary relationships and presenting cryptic species, and the taste umami as kelp's gift to gastronomy.

Although today it is frequently used for a range of applications in biogeography, invasive species management, and conservation planning, the software was initially produced for targeting surveys for rare or cryptic species (for example, Pearson and others 2007).
Molecular phylogeny of the Genus Lolliguncula Steenstrup, 1881 based on nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequences indicates genetic isolation of populations from North and South Atlantic, and the possible presence of further cryptic species.
expansa is a cryptic species (Legler 1978; Georges 1984; Spencer and Thompson 2005; Bower and Hodges 2014) and may therefore easily go undetected in an area.
This approach is problematic as genetic analysis has shown that some species display morphological plasticity, partially in response to environment, whilst other specimens with similar morphologies have been demonstrated to be distinct cryptic species.
