Cryptic diversity, diversification and vicariance in two species complexes of Tomocerus (Collembola, Tomoceridae) from China
TLDR
Diversification analyses suggest that the subsequent orogenesis of the Qinghai–Tibetan Plateau in western China had little impact on divergences within the two species complexes so that they maintained their geographical patterns from the Paleogene to the present day.
New insight into the systematics of Tomoceridae (Hexapoda, Collembola) by integrating molecular and morphological evidence
TLDR
The monophyly and subfamilial classification within Tomoceridae were validated here, whereas its position among Collembola will need further studies in a broader consideration across the major collembolan orders.
Molecular phylogeny supports S-chaetae as a key character better than jumping organs and body scales in classification of Entomobryoidea (Collembola)
TLDR
The results of this study drastically undermine the present classification of Entomobryoidea and provide new insights of the jumping organ, which could be adaptively modified during evolution of Collembola.
Transformational homology of the tergal setae during postembryonic development in the Sinella-Coecobrya group (Collembola: Entomobryidae)
TLDR
An ontogenetic approach is used to explore the setal transformational homology in polychaetotic entomobryid genera (Collembola), where tergal chaetotaxy is usually the most informative character for taxonomy.
Dental scales could occur in all scaled subfamilies of Entomobryidae (Collembola): new definition of Entomobryinae with description of a new genus and three new species
TLDR
In this new phylogenetic hypothesis, Entomobryinae has the greatest diversity in scale morphology and distribution among scaled collembolan groups, indicating multiple independent origins of scales.
Colouration, chaetotaxy and molecular data provide species-level resolution in a species complex of Dicranocentrus (Collembola : Entomobryidae)
TLDR
An integrative approach to the genus Dicranocentrus in China is taken, where several members of the genus have been morphologically grouped as a species complex based on having paired outer teeth on unguis and seven colour patterns and revealed that speciation events likely occurred during the late Neogene.
Molecular phylogeny of Entomobrya (Collembola: Entomobryidae) from China: Color pattern groups and multiple origins
TLDR
This study conducted a multilocus phylogeny and topology tests with likelihood and Bayesian algorithms, and accordingly demonstrated the non‐monophyly of Chinese Entomobrya, which originated mainly from Palearctic China in the Paleocene and Eocene.
Phylomitogenomic analyses on collembolan higher taxa with enhanced taxon sampling and discussion on method selection
TLDR
It is shown that mitochondrial genomes could provide important information for reconstructing the relationships among Collembola when suitable analytical approaches are implemented and the combination of nucleotide sequences, partitioning model and exclusion of third codon positions performed better in generating more reliable tree topology and higher node supports than others.
Revealing species diversity of Tomocerus ocreatus complex ( Collembola : Tomoceridae ) : integrative species delimitation and evaluation of taxonomic characters
TLDR
This study narrows species boundaries within the ocreatus complex and provides an example of how molecular approaches and detailed morphological examination can jointly benefit the exploration of biodiversity and the taxonomy of morphologically conservative groups of Collembola.
Two new species of Coecobrya (Collembola: Entomobryidae: Entomobryinae) from China, with a key to the Chinese species of the genus
TLDR
Two new species of the genus Coecobrya are described, belonging to tenebricosa-group, that present smooth chaetae on manubrium and base of dens and differs from the latter by Abd.
