Multiple sex determining regions in a group of related Chironomus species (Diptera:Chironomidae)
SummaryIn a group of Australian Chironomus species, sex determining regions involved in male heterogamety have been found at a minimum of five different chromosomal locations. In one case, Ch.Expand
Phylogeography of the black fly Simulium tani (Diptera: Simuliidae) from Thailand as inferred from mtDNA sequences
Intraspecific phylogeography has been used widely as a tool to infer population history. However, little attention has been paid to Southeast Asia despite its importance in terms of biodiversity.Expand
Identification of five species of the Anopheles dirus complex from Thailand, using allele‐specific polymerase chain reaction
The Anopheles dirus complex of mosquitoes contains some of the most important vectors of malaria in Southeast Asia. To distinguish five species of the complex that occur in Thailand, a method usingExpand
Molecular phylogeny of black flies (Diptera: Simuliidae) from Thailand, using ITS2 rDNA
The sequences of the second internal transcribed spacer (ITS2) of ribosomal DNA (rDNA) were determined for 40 black fly species from Thailand, belonging to 4 subgenera of the genus Simulium, namelyExpand
Integrated cytogenetic, ecological, and DNA barcode study reveals cryptic diversity in Simulium (Gomphostilbia) angulistylum (Diptera: Simuliidae).
An integrated approach based on cytogenetics, molecular genetics, and ecology was used to examine diversity in the black fly Simulium angulistylum Takaoka & Davies in Thailand. Cytological analysisExpand
Cytotaxonomy of Simulium siamense Takaoka and Suzuki (Diptera: Simuliidae) in Thailand.
Larval polytene chromosomes of 1824 individuals of Simulium siamense Takaoka and Suzuki from 32 locations in northern, northeastern, eastern, and central Thailand were examined. Differences in sexExpand
Agricultural land use and black fly (Diptera, Simuliidae) species richness and species assemblages in tropical streams, Northeastern Thailand
Habitat degradation through agricultural land use is the major factor threatening lotic ecosystems. Although black flies are major components of these ecosystems, the impact of agricultural land useExpand
Phylogenetic relationships among the black fly species (Diptera: Simuliidae) of Thailand based on multiple gene sequences
Simulium is a very speciose genus of the black fly family Simuliidae that includes many important pests of humans and animals. Cytotaxonomic and morphological studies have made substantial progressExpand
Cytotaxonomy, Morphology and Ecology of the Simulium nobile Species Group (Diptera: Simuliidae) in Thailand
The polytene chromosomes of 512 larvae of the Simulium nobile species group collected from 16 stream sites in northern, central and southern Thailand were examined. Band-by- band comparisons relativeExpand
Distribution of the larvae of blackflies (Diptera: Simuliidae) at Doi Inthanon National Park, northern Thailand.
The larvae of seventeen Simulium species consisting of thirteen known species, three unnamed species and one new species were distributed in various localities with different habitats at 400-2,460Expand
