Homology and phylogenetic implications of male genitalia in Diptera - Eremoneura
Homologies of male genitalic structures in the Eremoneura (Empidoidea + Cyclorrhapha) are examined and implications for the phylogenetic relationships of the included families are discussed in lightExpand

SEXUAL SELECTION AND THE EVOLUTION OF DANCE FLY MATING SYSTEMS (DIPTERA: EMPIDIDAE; EMPIDINAE)
Courtship displays of empidine dance flies (Diptera: Empididae), which include transfers of nuptial gifts during mating, are reviewed in light of sexual selection theory. Sex-role reversed courtshipExpand
CATALOG OF THE DOLICHOPODIDAE (DIPTERA) OF AMERICA NORTH OF MEXICO
Abstract A catalog of the American species of Dolichopodidae north of Mexico is provided. Fifty-five valid genera and 1288 valid species and 3 subspecies in 14 subfamilies are listed. Compared to theExpand
Brachyceran Diptera (Insecta) in Cretaceous ambers, Part IV, Significant New Orthorrhaphous Taxa
Abstract Thirteen species of basal Brachycera (11 described as new) are reported, belonging to nine families and three infraorders. They are preserved in amber from the Early Cretaceous (Neocomian)Expand
Male terminalia of Diptera (Insecta): a review of evolutionary trends, homology and phylogenetic implications
The male terminalia character system in Diptera is reviewed. The phylogenetic implications of apomorphic changes are traced on published cladograms. New synapomorphies include: anteroventralExpand
Comprehensive inventory of true flies (Diptera) at a tropical site
Estimations of tropical insect diversity generally suffer from lack of known groups or faunas against which extrapolations can be made, and have seriously underestimated the diversity of some taxa.Expand
A character analysis of the North American potter wasps (Hymenoptera: Vespidae; Eumeninae)
A cladistic analysis of the nearctic genera of Eumeninae is presented. The ground plan states of 43 character systems are discussed, and the first comprehensive cladogram for any significant portionExpand
