Diversification processes and reconstruction of ancestral morphologies improve the understanding of paraphyly which occurs in groups of organisms with an apparently long evolutionary history and when speciation prevails over extinction.

A hypothesis is proposed that is not unambiguously rejected by the present phylogenetic analyses, which shows how the Afrokeronopsis‐like pattern could have evolved from a Rubrioxytricha‐like ancestor via an Apoterritricha-like stage by cirri‐multiplication.

Time-calibrated phylogeny of main trichostome lineages might help to elucidate controversies in the geological and molecular timing of the split between marsupials and placental mammals.
Diversification dynamics and transoceanic Eurasian-Australian disjunction in the genus Picris (Compositae) induced by the interplay of shifts in intrinsic/extrinsic traits and paleoclimatic…
Batesian insect-insect mimicry-related explosive radiation of ancient alienopterid cockroaches
These findings reveal at least 65-million-year coevolution between extinct alienopterids and aculeates and represent one of the oldest evidence of Batesian mimicry in the insect fossil record.
