Progress, pitfalls and parallel universes: a history of insect phylogenetics
The phylogeny of insects has been both extensively studied and vigorously debated for over a century. A relatively accurate deep phylogeny had been produced by 1904. It was not substantially improvedExpand

A review of methods for analysing insect structures - the role of morphology in the age of phylogenomics.
Techniques currently used in insect morphology are outlined briefly. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and microphotography are used mainly for documenting external features, the former providingExpand

Morphology of the head of Sericoderus lateralis (Coleoptera, Corylophidae) with comments on the effects of miniaturization
The mouthparts and musculature of the head of Sericoderus lateralis are described. It is shown that the mouthparts of minute beetles preserve their complex structure and are not significantlyExpand

Arthropod Structure & Development
The head morphology of larvae of two undescribed species of the corylophid genus Holopsis were examined. Both are associated with the same basidiomycete host Ganoderma cf applanatum. Whereas theExpand

Cephalic anatomy of Sphaeriusidae and a morphology‐based phylogeny of the suborder Myxophaga (Coleoptera)
Myxophaga are a small group of beetles, but phylogenetically crucial as one of the four coleopteran suborders. The monogeneric Sphaeriusidae, one of four myxophagan families, comprise about 20Expand

Head morphology of the smallest beetles (Coleoptera: Ptiliidae) and the evolution of sporophagy within Staphyliniformia)
Ptiliidae include the smallest known beetles. External and internal head structures of species with different body sizes and feeding prefer­ ences were examined and described in detail. SaprophagousExpand

Unique rostrate larvae and basidiomycophagy in the beetle family Corylophidae.
The head morphology of larvae of two undescribed species of the corylophid genus Holopsis were examined. Both are associated with the same basidiomycete host Ganoderma cf applanatum. Whereas theExpand

The locomotor apparatus of one of the smallest beetles - The thoracic skeletomuscular system of Nephanes titan (Coleoptera, Ptiliidae).
Pterothoracic structures of the minute ptiliid Nephanes titan were examined and described in detail. Effects of miniaturization and the phylogenetic and functional background are discussed.Expand

The head morphology of Clambidae and its implications for the phylogeny of Scirtoidea (Coleoptera: Polyphaga)
External and internal structures of the head of adults of Clambus are described and illustrated in detail. The results are compared with structural features found in the clambid genus Calyptomerus,Expand

A needle in a haystack: Mesozoic origin of parasitism in Strepsiptera revealed by first definite Cretaceous primary larva (Insecta)
Twisted winged insects (Strepsiptera) are a highly specialized small order of parasitic insects. Whether parasitism developed at an early or late stage in the evolution of the group was unknown. HereExpand
