Phylogeography of the black fly Simulium aureohirtum (Diptera: Simuliidae) in Thailand.
The black fly Simulium aureohirtum Brunetti (Diptera: Simuliidae) is geographically widespread and utilizes diverse habitats. Previous studies revealed high genetic diversity, suggesting that thisExpand
DNA barcoding of human-biting black flies (Diptera: Simuliidae) in Thailand.
Black flies (Diptera: Simuliidae) are important insect vectors and pests of humans and animals. Accurate identification, therefore, is important for control and management. In this study, we usedExpand
Cytogenetic and Molecular Evidence of Additional Cryptic Diversity in High Elevation Black fly Simulium feuerborni (Diptera: Simuliidae) Populations in Southeast Asia
ABSTRACT Simulium feuerborni Edwards is geographically widespread in Southeast Asia. Previous cytogenetic study in Thailand revealed that this species is a species complex composed of two cytoformsExpand
A new species of black fly (Diptera: Simuliidae) in the Simulium (Simulium) multistriatum species-group from Thailand.
A new black fly species of the Simulium multistriatum species-group of the subgenus Simulium Latreille is described from the mountainous area in northeastern Thailand, based on morphology andExpand
Molecular detection of Trypanosoma (Kinetoplastida: Trypanosomatidae) in black flies (Diptera: Simuliidae) from Thailand.
Trypanosomes are parasitic flagellate protozoans that are important disease causing agents in humans and animals including economically significant livestock. Many blood-sucking insects are known toExpand
Molecular identification of blood meal sources in black flies (Diptera: Simuliidae) suspected as Leucocytozoon vectors.
Identification of the host blood meal of hematophagous insects can provide significant information regarding host preferences and the possibility of the transmission of disease agents. Currently,Expand
Life-stage association of black flies, using a fast-evolving nuclear gene sequence, and description of the larva of Simulium lampangense Takaoka & Choochote (Diptera: Simuliidae) from Thailand
Larval black flies, especially earlier instars, can be difficult to associate morphologically and chromosomally with other life stages. We used sequences of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase I (COI)Expand
