Morphological study and taxonomical notes on Eudendriidae (Cnidaria: Hydrozoa: Athecatae/Anthomedusae)
The morphology of 25 species of the family Eudendriidae was studied, with special regard to their reproductive organs, using techniques of SEM and optical microscopy and several synonymies were confirmed or discussed. Expand
Allochronic taxa as an alternative model to explain circumantarctic disjunctions
This model allows accommodation of conflicting sources of evidence now available for many groups with circumantarctic distributions and shows that there is no need to invoke ad hoc transoceanic dispersal, even for post‐Gondwanan taxa. Expand
Advances on Dipterology in the 21st century and extinction rates
This work synthesizes data from the last 15 years of taxonomic work in Diptera, mapping the world taxonomic productivity in the order and correlates it with estimates of extinction rates to determine the amount of basic taxonomic research still necessary. Expand

Flies, endemicity, and the Atlantic Forest: a biogeographical study using topographic units of analysis
The recognition of a separate area of endemism for flies in the Semideciduous Forest agrees with phytogeographical reconstructions and raises an important alert for the scarcity of biological reserves for this vegetation. Expand
On Reciprocal Illumination and Consilience in Biogeography
This procedure aims to evaluate the robustness of biogeographical hypotheses as scientific theories, which are reliable descriptions of how life changes its form both in space and time, putting historical biogeography close to Croizat's statement of evolution as a three dimensional phenomenon.

QUATERNARY MAMMALS FROM CENTRAL BRAZIL (SERRA DA BODOQUENA, MATO GROSSO DO SUL) AND COMMENTS ON PALEOBIOGEOGRAPHY AND PALEOENVIRONMENTS
Studies regarding Quaternary mammals from the Serra da Bodoquena (South-western Brazil, state of Mato Grosso do Sul) are scarce. In the region, the Fadas Cave has been an important paleontological… Expand
Timeless standards for species delimitation.
Recently a new species of bombyliid fly, Marleyimyia xylocopae, was described by Marshall & Evenhuis (2015) based on two photographs taken during fieldwork in the Republic of South Africa. This… Expand
Why biogeographical hypotheses need a well supported phylogenetic framework: a conceptual evaluation
This artigo defende that a sistematica e o fundamento necessario para a biogeografia historica deve ser precisa, e indices baseados na diversidade filogenetica permitem a delimitacao de areas para a conservacao da diversidades biologica. Expand
