This short communication is only intended to point out briefly and objectively some of the comments, appreciations, and sometimes misinterpretations made by Clavero and CentenoCuadros in their criticism to our article on the phylogeography of the white-clawed crayfish in Spain, recently published in this journal. For those skilled in the discipline of phylogeography, it is well known to be a multidisciplinary science. Therefore, we disagree with the argument of monodisciplinary approach given by these authors. The work of Matallanas et al. 2016, as all our previous ones, has no intention, no bias, or directionality. It clearly aims what the title synthesizes, an update of genetic information for the white-clawed crayfish in Spain. To achieve this, we have been the first to use two mitochondrial markers, the longest so far used, in a wide and representative sample of Iberian crayfish. A sample of crayfish fromNorthern Italy was just used as outgroup. The design is, therefore, very suitable and appropriate for the question posed.
