In order to discriminate between the alternate possibilities that either the three individuals were one of the other North American Brevoortia species that had been misidentified in the field as Atlantic menhaden, or that there is incomplete lineage sorting at the COI locus, the more rapidly evolving mitochondrial control region was sequenced and compared to those generated by Anderson (2007) for the four species of North American menhaden (GenBank accession numbers EF119342-EFl19454).
