Phylogeny of Hydrophiloidea (Coleoptera: Staphyliniformia) using characters from adult and preimaginal stages
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis using characters from egg cases, larvae, pupae and adults was conducted; the outgroups included the beetle families Silphidae, Hydraenidae and Histeridae, supporting the position of Hydraen Families within the Staphylinoidea and not as part of Hydrophiloidea. Expand
Higher‐level phylogeny of Hydrophilinae (Coleoptera: Hydrophilidae) based on larval, pupal and adult characters
TLDR
According to the present study, Hydrophilinae is monophyletic, and except for the tribe hydrophilini which appears as polyphyletic (it includes the subtribes HydrophILina, Hydrobiina, and Acidocerina), the remaining tribes are monophy letic. Expand
Assessing land-use effects on water quality, in-stream habitat, riparian ecosystems and biodiversity in Patagonian northwest streams.
TLDR
Non-managed native forest sites showed the highest integrity of ecological conditions and also great biodiversity of benthic communities, while pasture sites still supported rich communities of riparian/littoral invertebrates, increasing overall biodiversity. Expand
Primary chaetotaxy of the larval head capsule and head appendages of the Hydrophilidae (Coleoptera) based on larva of Hydrobius fuscipes (Linnaeus, 1758)
TLDR
The primary chaetotaxy of the larval head capsule and head appendages of the family Hydrophilidae is described and illustrated using the larva of Hydrobius fuscipes as a model, and compared with fifteen hydrophilid taxa representing all main taxonomic groups within the family. Expand
Application of neoichnological studies to behavioural and taphonomic interpretation of fossil bird-like tracks from lacustrine settings: The Late Triassic-Early Jurassic? Santo Domingo Formation,
Abstract The purpose of this study is to apply neoichnological observations to the behavioural and taphonomic interpretation of a Late Triassic–Early Jurassic track surface from the Santo DomingoExpand
Larval morphology of genus Lancetes (Coleoptera: Adephaga: Dytiscidae): the hypothesis of sister-group relationship with the subfamily Dytiscinae revisited
TLDR
The most parsimonious tree supports a sister-group relationship between the genus Lancetes and members of the subfamily Dytiscinae and the only unambiguous synapomorphy in support of this hypothesis is the secondary subdivision of some cephalic appendages. Expand
Environmental changes and macroinvertebrate responses in Patagonian streams (Argentina) to ashfall from the Chaitén Volcano (May 2008).
TLDR
A strong and significant increase in TSS values at most sites was recorded and although the peak diminished rapidly during the following months, resuspension and remobilization of ash continue even 20 months after, indicating that the community was not completely recovered at some sites. Expand
Phylogeny of Berosini (Coleoptera: Hydrophilidae, Hydrophilinae) based on larval and adult characters, and evolutionary scenarios related to habitat shift in larvae
TLDR
Several larval evolutionary trends are discussed: shifts to benthic and cryptic habits, morphological modifications and adaptations related to these habits, and morphological changes of the clypeolabrum and head appendages. Expand
Larval morphology of Rhantus Dejean, 1833 (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae: Colymbetinae): descriptions of 22 species and phylogenetic considerations
TLDR
It is suggested that the Neotropical species R. monteithi Balke, Wewalka, Alarie & Ribera, 2007 occur as more closely related phylogenetically to other genera of the tribe Colymbetini than to the Rhantus species studied. Expand
ADAPTATIONS OF IMMATURE STAGES OF SPHAERIDIINAE (STAPHYLINIFORMIA, HYDROPHILOIDEA: HYDROPHILIDAE) AND STATE OF KNOWLEDGE OF PREIMAGINAL HYDROPHILIDAE
Several evolutionary trends of sphaeridiine beetles are discussed: terrestrial habits, larval developmental time, number of eggs/egg case, shape of the egg cases, prey consumption, construction ofExpand
