Data from: Cryptic speciation in the field vole: a multilocus approach confirms three highly divergent lineages in Eurasia

Species are generally described from morphological features, but there is growing recognition of sister forms that show substantial genetic differentiation without obvious morphological variation and may therefore be considered ‘cryptic species’. Here, we investigate the field vole (Microtus agrestis), a Eurasian mammal with little apparent morphological differentiation but which, on the basis of previous sex-linked nuclear and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) analyses, is subdivided into a northern and a southern lineage, sufficiently divergent that they may...
