Elusive ditrysian phylogeny: an account of combining systematized morphology with molecular data (Lepidoptera)
TLDR
The large morphological dataset provides information on the diversity and distribution of morphological traits in Ditrysia, and can be used in future research on the evolution of these traits, in identification keys and in identification of fossil Lepidoptera.
Comprehensive Molecular Sampling Yields a Robust Phylogeny for Geometrid Moths (Lepidoptera: Geometridae)
TLDR
This study provides the first comprehensive phylogeny of the Geometridae in a global context, and results generally agree with the other, more restricted studies, suggesting that the general phylogenetic patterns of theGeometricridae are now well-established.
Phylogeny and tribal classification of Sterrhinae with emphasis on delimiting Scopulini (Lepidoptera: Geometridae)
TLDR
The association of the included Larentiinae taxa with the Cosymbiini-Rhodometrini-Timandrini lineage questions the monophyly of Sterrhinae.
Phylogeny and classification of the Scopulini moths (Lepidoptera: Geometridae, Sterrhinae)
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of the genera in the geometrid tribe Scopulini (Lepidoptera: Sterrhinae) were examined using 141 characters of adult morphology and ecology, finding many previously recognized genera to be nonmonophyletic.
Species diversity and geographical distribution of Scopulini moths (Lepidoptera: Geometridae, Sterrhinae) on a world-wide scale
TLDR
The dynamics of species descriptions per decade shows that it peaked around 1900, remained high until the 1940s, and the cumulative curve is yet to reach an asymptote, while the Scopulini are a cosmopolitan group.
Mating behaviour and copulation mechanisms in the genus Scopula (Geometridae: Sterrhinae)
TLDR
Mating behaviour and functional morphology of the copulatory organs in the sterrhine genus Scopula Schrank, 1802 were studied in order to determine the role the male 8th sternite's specialized structures play during copula- tion.
A comprehensive molecular phylogeny of Geometridae (Lepidoptera) with a focus on enigmatic small subfamilies
TLDR
This study analyzed a molecular dataset of 1,206 Geometroidea terminal taxa from all biogeographical regions and found that many tribes were para- or polyphyletic and therefore proposed tens of taxonomic changes at the tribe and subfamily levels.
Everted Vesicae of the Timandra Griseata Group: Methodology and Differential Features (Geometridae, Sterrhinae)
TLDR
The internal male genitalia of Timandra griseata Petersen and T. recompta (Prout, 1930) are illustrated for the first time with the vesica being everted.
Molecular phylogeny of Sterrhinae moths (Lepidoptera: Geometridae): towards a global classification
TLDR
A multigene phylogenetic study was carried out to test current, mostly morphology‐based hypotheses on Sterrhinae phylogeny with additional material included from further geographical areas and morphologically different lineages, and results generally agree with earlier hypotheses at tribal levels and support the hypothesis that Sterrhinee comprises two major lineages.
