Toward reconstructing the evolution of advanced moths and butterflies (Lepidoptera: Ditrysia): an initial molecular study
TLDR
The results corroborate the broad outlines of the current working phylogenetic hypothesis for Ditrysia, demonstrate that some prominent features of that hypothesis, including the position of the butterflies, need revision, and resolve the majority of family and subfamily relationships within superfamilies as thus far sampled.

A comprehensive DNA barcode database for Central European beetles with a focus on Germany: adding more than 3500 identified species to BOLD
TLDR
This study provides the globally largest DNA barcode reference library for Coleoptera for 15 948 individuals belonging to 3514 well‐identified species (53% of the German fauna) with representatives from 97 of 103 families with a focus on Germany. Expand
DNA Barcoding the Geometrid Fauna of Bavaria (Lepidoptera): Successes, Surprises, and Questions
TLDR
The present study provides a comprehensive DNA barcode library for the Geometridae, one of the most diverse of insect families, and emphasizes the effectiveness of DNA barcoding as a tool for monitoring biodiversity. Expand
Comprehensive Molecular Sampling Yields a Robust Phylogeny for Geometrid Moths (Lepidoptera: Geometridae)
TLDR
This study provides the first comprehensive phylogeny of the Geometridae in a global context, and results generally agree with the other, more restricted studies, suggesting that the general phylogenetic patterns of theGeometricridae are now well-established. Expand
Order Lepidoptera Linnaeus, 1758. In : Zhang, Z.-Q. (Ed.) Animal biodiversity: An outline of higher-level classification and survey of taxonomic richness
TLDR
This dissertation aims to provide a history of web exceptionalism from 1989 to 2002, a period chosen in order to explore its roots as well as specific cases up to and including the year in which descriptions of “Web 2.0” began to circulate. Expand
Integration of DNA barcoding into an ongoing inventory of complex tropical biodiversity
TLDR
Adding DNA barcoding to the inventory of the caterpillars, their food plants and parasitoids in northwestern Costa Rica has substantially improved the quality and depth of the inventory, and greatly multiplied the number of situations requiring further taxonomic work for resolution. Expand
Allopatry as a Gordian Knot for Taxonomists: Patterns of DNA Barcode Divergence in Arctic-Alpine Lepidoptera
TLDR
DNA barcodes have great potential to both increase taxonomic resolution and to make decisions concerning the taxonomic status of allopatric populations more objective. Expand
Species Identification in Malaise Trap Samples by DNA Barcoding Based on NGS Technologies and a Scoring Matrix
TLDR
A meta-barcoding pipeline is developed to streamline the barcoding process and indicate that a fast, efficient and reliable analysis of next generation data from malaise trap samples can be achieved using this pipeline. Expand
