Rearrangement and evolution of mitochondrial genomes in Thysanoptera (Insecta)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of thrips mitochondrial sequence data supports the monophyly of two suborders, a sister-group relationship between Stenurothripidae and Thripidae, and suggests a novel set of relationships between thripid genera, thus greatly improving taxonomic coverage.
DNA Barcoding studies on Thrips in India: Cryptic species and Species complexes
TLDR
This work attempted the largest DNA barcoding initiative on 370 sequences of 89 thrips morphospecies including 104 novel sequences from 39 morphspecies, including the type specimens of four species.
Thrips (Insecta: Thysanoptera) of India- An Updated Checklist
TLDR
An updated checklist of Thysanoptera from India is provided with their distribution data and forty four species with new distributional records are provided for different geographical regions of India.
Identification of penaeid shrimp from Chilika Lake through DNA barcoding
TLDR
DNA barcode data of morphologically identified penaeid shrimps from Chilika Lake revealed 99–100% similarities with the conspecific database sequences (GenBank and BOLD).
Sexual dimorphism among Thysanoptera Terebrantia, with a new species from Malaysia and remarkable species from India in Aeolothripidae and Thripidae
TLDR
The previously unknown male of Aroidothrips longistylus Ananthakrishnan (Thripidae) from India is described with the longest antennal sensoria known in any thrips species, and a related sexually dimorphic Malaysian species is described.
Identification of Indian Spiders through DNA barcoding: Cryptic species and species complex
TLDR
This study is the first large scale attempt on DNA barcoding of spiders from India with 101 morphospecies of 72 genera under 21 families, including five endemic species and holotypes of three species, and shows that DNA barCoding is a valuable tool for specimen identification and species discovery of Indian spiders.
The Indian species of Liophloeothrips Priesner (Thysanoptera, Phlaeothripidae) with one new species.
TLDR
A key is presented to distinguish these three genera, together with a key to, and review of, the 13 species now recognized in Liophloeothrips from India.
DNA barcoding identified selected ornamental fishes in Murti river of East India
TLDR
The detected high intraspecific genetic divergence in Opsarius barna and Channa gachua in the present dataset suggested further genetic investigation from their known distributions, and was suggested to test the efficacy of DNA barcode data for species identification.
