Strepsipteran brains and effects of miniaturization (Insecta)
Abstract The brain and suboesophageal complex of adult and larval Strepsiptera were examined, described and reconstructed 3-dimensionally. The results are compared to conditions found in other smallExpand

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 morphology and evolution of the female postabdomen of Holometabola (Insecta).
In the present article homology issues, character evolution and phylogenetic implications related to the female postabdomen of the holometabolan insects are discussed, based on an earlier analysis ofExpand

The male postabdomen and reproductive system of Bibio marci Linnaeus, 1758 (Hexapoda: Diptera: Bibionidae)
The male postabdomen and the internal parts of the male genital system of Bibio marci (Bibionomorpha) were examined and reconstructed 3-dimensionally. Several features differ from the presumptiveExpand

Two new heterobathmiid moth species with distinctive female genital configurations (Lepidoptera: Heterobathmiidae)
Two new species of the basal (non-glossatan) moth family Heterobathmiidae are described: Heterobathmia megadecella and H. nielsenella. Both species have particularly notable features in their femaleExpand
