Order Trichoptera Kirby, 1813 (Insecta), Caddisflies*
The taxonomy, diversity, and distribution of the aquatic insect order Trichoptera, caddisflies, are reviewed and a discussion of phylogenetic studies within the order is presented, including higher classification of the suborders and superfamilies, based on recent literature. Expand
Phylogeny of Trichoptera (caddisflies): characterization of signal and noise within multiple datasets.
Trichoptera are holometabolous insects with aquatic larvae that, together with the Lepidoptera, make up the Amphiesmenoptera and are found to be evolving under extremely different rates, with Annulipalpia to be the most basal of the three suborders, with Spicipalpia and IntegripalPia forming a clade. Expand
Phylogeny of caddisflies (Insecta, Trichoptera)
Equally and differentially weighted parsimony analyses were conducted in order to present a phylogeny of Trichoptera, including 43 of 45 families, which closely resembles that proposed by Herbert Ross with respect to the relationships among suborders, with a monophyletic Annulipalpia at the base of the tree, and a clade consisting of Spicipalpia plus a monopyletic IntegripalPia.

DNA barcode data confirm new species and reveal cryptic diversity in Chilean Smicridea (Smicridea) (Trichoptera:Hydropsychidae)
The DNA barcode data proved useful in delimiting species within Chilean Smicridea (Smic Ridea) and were suitable for life-stage associations, and contained sufficient intraspecific variation to make the DNA bar code a candidate locus for widespread application in phylogeographic studies. Expand
The Neotropical species of Notalina, a southern group of long‐horned caddisflies (Trichoptera: Leptoceridae) *
The leptocerid trichopteran genus Notalina is recorded from the South American continent for the first time and seven new species are described in it and placed in a new subgenus, Neonotalina; the two species‐groups may be distinguished by the morphology of the male phallus. Expand
Checklist of the Trichoptera (Insecta) of Brazil I
The total number of species recorded for Brazil is 378; the most diverse family is Hydropsychidae with 103 species; the second most diverse is Hydroptilidae with 50 species, followed by Leptoceridae and Philopotamidae with 41 each. Expand
Systematics of Neotropical Triplectides (Trichoptera: Leptoceridae)
The taxonomy and systematics of the Neotropical species of Triplectides Kolenati (Leptoceridae: Triplectidinae: Triplectidini) are reviewed. Illustrations and generic diagnoses are provided for adultExpand
Nomenclatural and systematic changes in the Neotropical caddisflies ( Insecta: Trichoptera)
Recent work on a catalog of the Neotropical caddisflies has resulted in the recognition of the need to make numerous lectotype designations, new names for homonyms, specific and generic synonymies,Expand
Catalog of the Neotropical Trichoptera (Caddisflies)
The Neotropical caddisfly (Trichoptera) fauna is cataloged from a review of over 1,000 literature citations through 2015 to include 3,262 currently recognized, valid species-group names in 25 families and 155 extant genera. Expand
New Neotropical species of the genus Austrotinodes Schmid (Trichoptera: Ecnomidae)
Six new species of Austrotinodes Schmid from the Neotropics are described: A. abrachium (Brazil), A. belchioris (Brazil%), A. boliviensis (Bolivia), C. cressae (Venezuela), longispinum ( Brazil), and A. taquaralis (Brazil). Expand
