Parts of two mitochondrial genes were sequenced from several Sphaerodactylus species collected from Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, and two small islands located between the formers. A stepwise model of colonization is proposed, wherein S. nicholsi from southwestern Puerto Rico or a very close ancestor gave rise through a founder event to Sphaerodactylus monensis on Mona Island and, in a similar fashion, S. monensis or a very close ancestor on Mona Island gave rise to S. levinsi on Desecheo Island.
