The complete mitochondrial genomes of two skipper genera (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae) and their associated phylogenetic analysis
TLDR
Bayesian inference and maximum likelihood methods were employed to infer the phylogenetic relationships, which suggested that A. fuliginosus and B. bicolor belong in the subfamily Hesperiinae.
Out of the Orient: Post‐Tethyan transoceanic and trans‐Arabian routes fostered the spread of Baorini skippers in the Afrotropics
TLDR
This work investigates biotic exchange between the Afrotropics and the Oriental region during the Cenozoic, a period in which geological changes altered landmass connectivity and recovered strongly supported relationships for Baorini skippers and clarifies the systematics of the tribe.
A multilocus phylogenetic framework of the tribe Aeromachini (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae: Hesperiinae), with implications for taxonomy and biogeography
TLDR
Diversification in situ and range expansion to adjacent areas have played essential roles in the evolution of Aeromachini, but founder‐event speciation and vicariance also have likely been important factors in shaping the biogeographical history of this tribe.
A new species of Coladenia from Luzon, Philippines, with description of immatures (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae).
Coladenia minor Chiba, new species , is described from Luzon, Philippines. Its final instar larva and pupa are also described.
Clarification of the Phylogenetic Framework of the Tribe Baorini (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae: Hesperiinae) Inferred from Multiple Gene Sequences
TLDR
The present study aims to infer a more comprehensive phylogeny of the Baorini tribe using molecular data, to test the monophyly of the tribe as well as the genera it includes in order to clarify their taxonomic status, and finally to revise the current classification of the group.
AN ONCHOCERCA SPECIES FROM CATTLE ON KYUSHU ISLAND IS O. SUZUKII, A TRANSFUGE PARASITE FROM THE JAPANESE ENDEMIC BOVID, CAPRICORNIS CRISPUS
In 1988-1989, microfilariae of an unidentified Onchocerca species were found in the skin of eight of the 16 cattle aged at least 5 years that were examined in Oita, Kyushu, Japan. Adult worms were
Systematics of the genus Zinaida Evans, 1937 (Hesperiidae: Hesperiinae: Baorini)
TLDR
It is revealed that Zinaida is monophyletic and consists of four intra-generic clades that correspond to morphological characteristics and discusses the distribution of each of these groups in the light of the phylogenetic hypothesis, and provides a comprehensive taxonomic checklist.
