Systematics and phylogeny of Dolichopodinae (Diptera: Dolichopodidae)
The phylogenetic relationships of the subfamily Dolichopodinae was investigated based on the examination of over 340 species of Dolichopodinae from all zoogeographic regions. Sixty-five exemplarExpand
Abstract A catalog of the American species of Dolichopodidae north of Mexico is provided. Fifty-five valid genera and 1288 valid species and 3 subspecies in 14 subfamilies are listed. Compared to theExpand
Male terminalia of Diptera (Insecta): a review of evolutionary trends, homology and phylogenetic implications
The male terminalia character system in Diptera is reviewed. The phylogenetic implications of apomorphic changes are traced on published cladograms. New synapomorphies include: anteroventralExpand
Comprehensive inventory of true flies (Diptera) at a tropical site
Estimations of tropical insect diversity generally suffer from lack of known groups or faunas against which extrapolations can be made, and have seriously underestimated the diversity of some taxa.Expand
Developmental morphology of stem galls of Diplolepis nodulosa (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) and those modified by the inquiline Periclistus pirata (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) on Rosa blanda (Rosaceae)
Diplolepis nodulosa (Beutenmuller) induces small, single-chambered, prosoplasmic galls in stems of Rosa blanda Ait. Gall initiation begins when adult females deposit a single egg into the procambiumExpand
Remarkable fly (Diptera) diversity in a patch of Costa Rican cloud forest: Why inventory is a vital science.
Study of all flies (Diptera) collected for one year from a four-hectare (150 x 266 meter) patch of cloud forest at 1,600 meters above sea level at Zurquí de Moravia, San José Province, Costa RicaExpand
The New World Genera of Parathalassiinae (Diptera: Empidoidea: Dolichopodidae s.l.), with New Species of Thalassophorus and Eothalassius
Abstract The parathalassine genera Thalassophorus Saigusa, Eothalassius Shamshev and Grootaert, and Chimerothalassius Shamshev and Grootaert are recorded from the New World for the first time.Expand
Biology of the galler Diplolepis rosaefolii (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae), its associated component community, and host shift to the shrub rose Therese bugnet
Diplolepis rosaefolii (Cockerell) induces a lenticular gall on the leaves of various roses across Canada. In Ontario and Quebec, D . rosaefolii is found only on Rosa acicularis Lindl., and its gallsExpand
Phoomyia, a new genus of Dolichopodinae from the Oriental Region (Diptera: Dolichopodidae).
Phoomyia Naglis & Grootaert gen. nov. is described to include two new species of beach-dwelling dolichopodine flies from coastal Sri Lanka and Thailand: Phoontyia srilankensis Naglis & Brooks sp.Expand
