Male differentiation patterns in two polyphenic sister species of the genus Onthophagus Latreille, 1802 (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae): a geometric morphometric approach
This paper focuses on morphological (both shape and size) differences that quite similar polyphenic sister species evolve during divergence processes. Traits were analysed using a geometricalExpand

Geometric morphometric analysis of wings variation between two populations of the Scythris obscurella species-group: geographic or interspecific differences? (Lepidoptera: Scythrididae)
The wings of scythridids of two population from Valle d’Aosta and Maritime Alps were examined through geometric morphometrics analysis. All the specimens belong to the the“Scythris obscurella group”.Expand

Epipharynx shape as a tool to reveal differentiation patterns between insect sister species: insights from Onthophagus taurus and O. illyricus (Insecta: Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae)
We evaluated the potential of the adult epipharynx to reveal interspecific differentiation patterns in closely related Onthophagus species. Although easy to analyse, this structure has receivedExpand
