Rapid degradation of tropical forests urges to improve our efficiency in large-scale biodiversity assessment. DNA-barcoding can assist greatly in this task, but commonly used phenetic approaches for DNA-based identifications rely on the existence of comprehensive reference databases, which are infeasible for hyperdiverse tropical ecosystems. Alternatively, phylogenetic methods are more robust to sparse taxon sampling but time-consuming, while multiple alignment of species-diagnostic, typically length-variable markers can be problematic across divergent taxa. We advocate the combination of...
