Molecular phylogeny of the mega‐diverse rove beetle tribe Staphylinini (Insecta, Coleoptera, Staphylinidae)
A molecular phylogeny of the mega‐diverse rove beetle tribe Staphylinini and its relatives (Insecta, Coleoptera, StAPHylinidae) is presented.
Revised systematics and biogeography of ‘Quediina’ of sub‐Saharan Africa: new phylogenetic insights into the rove beetle tribe Staphylinini (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae)
The formerly seen bipolar distribution pattern for the ‘Quediina’ is demonstrated to be an artefact, not a reality to explain and a new evolutionary pattern is revealed for the entire tribe Staphylinini.
The oldest fossil species of the rove beetle subfamily Oxyporinae (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae) from the Early Cretaceous (Yixian Formation, China) and its phylogenetic significance
The significantly older age of this newly discovered species makes the currently accepted phylogenetic hypothesis that Oxyporinae is a basal lineage of the Staphylininae group more plausible, and the remarkably modern and specialization-rich morphology of Oxyporus yixianus leads to the assumption that this species exemplifies a rather derived stage of divergence of Oxyportinae from the stem of the STM group.
Multilocus phylogeny defines a new classification of Staphylininae (Coleoptera, Staphylinidae), a rove beetle group with high lineage diversity
This work provides the first multilocus molecular phylogeny of a group corresponding to the former subfamily Staphylininae, proven to be a lineage sister to the monophyletic Paederinae and reclassified according to a robust phylogeny resolving a number of long‐standing controversies.

The monophyly of Staphylinini was strongly supported and analyses support seven clades that correspond to higher taxonomic levels, four of which are formally described as subtribes here: Acylophorina stat.
Baltic amber impact on historical biogeography and palaeoclimate research: oriental rove beetle Dysanabatium found in the Eocene of Europe (Coleoptera, Staphylinidae, Paederinae)
Baltic amber is a rich source of fossilized organisms and a valuable tool for evolutionary, biogeographical and palaeoenvironmental research. Because it is found in several deposits around the Baltic…
Alesiella gen.n. and a newly discovered relict lineage of Staphylinini (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae)
This study aimed to identify the sister group of the poorly known and morphologically isolated Burmese species Quedius lineipennis within the tribe Staphylinini using morphological characters and demonstrated that this Asian species is not a member of the genusQuedius but forms the sister taxon to the Neotropical genus Quediomacrus.
The first fossil Megalopsidiinae (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae) from Upper Cretaceous Burmese amber and its potential for understanding basal relationships of rove beetles
Phylogenetic placement of the austral rove beetle genus Hyperomma triggers changes in classification of Paederinae (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae)
The concept of the tribe Paederini is changed and Lathrobiini sensu novo is established, and the taxonomic history of the higher‐level systematics of the subfamily Paederinae is summarized.
Rove beetle subtribes Quediina, Amblyopinina and Tanygnathinina: systematic changes affecting Central European fauna (Coleoptera, Staphylinidae, Staphylinini)

New wordwide and Central Europe-based diagnoses are given for the subtribes Quediina and Amblyopinina and earlier recognized but not widely accepted synonymies of the genera Quedius and Velleius, and of the species Heterothops praevius and HeterOTHops niger, are justified.
