The larval head of Nevrorthidae and the phylogeny of Neuroptera (Insecta)
External and internal head structures of larvae of Nevrorthidae were described in detail. The results were compared to conditions found in other representatives of Neuroptera and the other twoExpand

The thorax of Zorotypus (Hexapoda, Zoraptera) and a new nomenclature for the musculature of Neoptera.
External and internal features of the thorax of alate and wingless morphs of Zorotypus hubbardi and Z. weidneri were examined and described in detail. Three-dimensional computer reconstructions wereExpand

Morphological and molecular evidence converge upon a robust phylogeny of the megadiverse Holometabola
We present the largest morphological character set ever compiled for Holometabola. This was made possible through an optimized acquisition of data. Based on our analyses and recently publishedExpand

The evolutionary history of holometabolous insects inferred from transcriptome-based phylogeny and comprehensive morphological data
BackgroundDespite considerable progress in systematics, a comprehensive scenario of the evolution of phenotypic characters in the mega-diverse Holometabola based on a solid phylogenetic hypothesisExpand
