Golden moles (Family Chrysochloridae) are small subterranean mammals, endemic to sub-Saharan Africa, and many of the 21 species are listed as threatened on the IUCN Red List. Most species have highly restricted ranges; however two species, the Hottentot golden mole (Amblysomus hottentotus) and the Cape golden mole (Chrysochloris asiatica) have relatively wide ranges. We recently uncovered cryptic diversity within A. hottentotus, through a phylogeographic analysis of this taxon using two mitochondrial gene regions and a nuclear intron. To further investigate this cryptic diversity, we generated nuclear SNP data from across the genome of A. hottentotus, by means of double-digest restriction-site associated DNA sequencing (ddRADSeq), and mapped reads to the Cape golden mole genome. We conducted a phylogenetic analysis and investigated population differentiation. Our results support the distinctiveness of A. h. meesteri. Furthermore, we provide evidence from nuclear SNPs in support of our previous finding that Central coastal samples represent a unique cryptic lineage that is highly divergent from A. h. pondoliae farther south. Although mtDNA suggests that Umtata may represent a unique lineage sister to A. h. longiceps, mito-nuclear discordance from our RADseq data indicate that these samples may instead be closer to A. h. pondoliae, and therefore may not represent a distinct lineage. We stress the importance of recognizing that understudied populations, such as that of Umtata, may represent populations or ESUs under threat and in need of conservation attention. We present a high-quality filtered SNP dataset, comprising thousands of SNPs, which may serve as a useful resource for future golden mole studies. We have thus added to the growing body of research demonstrating the power and utility of RADseq to investigate population differentiation.
