A Genealogical Approach to Quantifying Lineage Divergence
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the gsi provides a useful way to detect significant exclusivity even when groups are not monophyletic, and more broadly applicable to quantify and assess the significance of clustering of observations in labeled groups on any tree.

TLDR
The nDNA phylogeny corroborates the hypothesis of allopatric divergence and multiple invasions, and when compared with mtDNA patterns, suggests that interspecific hybridization is a persistent feature of the history of Laupala.
Sexual behaviour: Rapid speciation in an arthropod
TLDR
Laupala, a group of forest-dwelling Hawaiian crickets that is characterized primarily through differences in male courtship song, is found to have the highest rate of speciation so far recorded in arthropods, supporting the idea that divergence in courtship or sexual behaviour drives rapid speciation in animals.
The (mis)concept of species recognition.
Species boundaries and genetic diversity among Hawaiian crickets of the genus Laupala identified using amplified fragment length polymorphism
TLDR
The question of species boundaries in the Hawaiian cricket, Laupala, is addressed using nuclear DNA patterns sampled by the amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) technique, which support previously hypothesized taxonomic relationships among sympatric populations and suggest close genetic relationships among allopatric, conspecific populations.
Comparative phylogeography of oceanic archipelagos: Hotspots for inferences of evolutionary process
TLDR
A review of recent discoveries of the progression rule on seven hotspot archipelagos, and results from two compelling cases of progression where the mosaic genome may offer insights into contrasting demographic histories that shed light on mechanisms of speciation and progression on remote archipelago.

TLDR
The Hawaiian cricket genus Laupala (family Gryllidae) is one of several native genera of flightless crickets found in rain‐forest habitat across the Hawaiian archipelago, and the songs produced by adult males are acoustically distinct.
Genomic linkage of male song and female acoustic preference QTL underlying a rapid species radiation
TLDR
The genomic location of quantitative trait loci underlying male song and female acoustic preference variation in the Hawaiian cricket genus Laupala is compared, revealing genetic conditions that would enable functional coordination between song and acoustic preference divergence during speciation.
