To make the assignment of elvers to species more easily attainable and reliable, unpublished and recently published mitochondrial DNA sequences were used to design molecular determination approaches not based on sequencing. Two methods were proposed based on 16SrRNA single nucleotide polymorphism analysis, which improve identification of the four eel species living in the south-western Indian Ocean region.
