An overview of the classification of the Muscidae based on cladistic methodology is given and Phylogenetic patterns within Reinwardtinae and Dichaetomyiinae could be explained by a Gondwana distribution.
Organochlorine pesticides (OCs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in sediments and crabs (Chasmagnathus granulata, Dana, 1851) from mangroves of Guanabara Bay, Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil.
The results indicate that the population density of crab is negatively affected by sediment contamination that is reflected basically by the organochlorine content in the female eggs, which is more significant to evaluate or estimate an impact of these pollutants upon C. granulata population than the organchlorine concentration in sediment samples.
Muscidae (Diptera) from Madagascar: identification keys, descriptions of new species, and new records.
Almost 80% of the previously known Madagascan muscid fauna has been recognised among the material studied, and 23 new species are described.

Revision of Toxomerus Macquart, 1855 (Diptera: Syrphidae) from Brazil with synonymic notes, identification key to the species and description of three new species
Toxomerus Macquart (Diptera: Syrphidae) species from Brazil are revised, including the examination of most of the types, and three new species are described.
Phylogeny of Philornis Meinert species (Diptera: Muscidae)
This study presents a cladistic analysis of the Neotropical Philornis species based on morphological characters of adults and larvae, as well as biological data on larvae, which shows a basal polytomy that includes the species that traditionally correspond to the “aitkeni-group”.
A key to the Afrotropical genera of Muscidae (Diptera)
A key to 57 of the 58 Afrotropical Muscidae (Diptera) genera is given and some morphological diagnostic characters are illustrated in order to help the use of the key.
