The presence of multiple species lineages can cause problems in biogeographic and cospeciation studies analogous to the problems gene paralogy can cause in molecular systematics. The differential survival of these lineages, coupled with inadequate sampling, can distort estimates of area relationships in biogeography or host-parasite relationships in parasitology
