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 exemplar
Remarkable fly (Diptera) diversity in a patch of Costa Rican cloud forest: Why inventory is a vital science.
TLDR
The number of species of Diptera in tropical regions has been severely underestimated and the actual number may surpass the number ofspecies of Coleoptera.
Male terminalia of Diptera (Insecta): a review of evolutionary trends, homology and phylogenetic implications
TLDR
The Diptera sperm pump with a functional ejaculatory apodeme is a possible autapomorphy of Diptera, exclusive of Nymphomyiidae and Deuterophlebiidae.
CATALOG OF THE DOLICHOPODIDAE (DIPTERA) OF AMERICA NORTH OF MEXICO
TLDR
The diversity and distribution of Nearctic Dolichopodidae and their relationships with the fauna of other realms is tabulated and discussed.
Comprehensive inventory of true flies (Diptera) at a tropical site
TLDR
The intensive inventory of a four-hectare tropical cloud forest in Costa Rica for one year yielded 4332 species of Diptera, providing the first verifiable basis for diversity of a major group of insects at a single site in the tropics.
Developmental morphology of stem galls of Diplolepis nodulosa (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) and those modified by the inquiline Periclistus pirata (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) on Rosa blanda (Rosaceae)
TLDR
Gall initiation and maturation begins when gall tissues cease proliferating and differentiate into distinct layers concentrically arranged around the larval chamber, followed by parenchymatous nutritive tissue, sclerenchyma, cortex, and epidermis.
The New World Genera of Parathalassiinae (Diptera: Empidoidea: Dolichopodidae s.l.), with New Species of Thalassophorus and Eothalassius
TLDR
The genus Chimerothalassius, which was previously known from a single New Zealand species, is recorded from the island of Dominica, based on a female specimen plus a slide-mounted wing of an undescribed species.
Remarkable new fossil species of Schistostoma Becker (Diptera: Dolichopodidae: Microphorinae) from mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber.
TLDR
Two closely related and distinctive species of Schistostoma Becker are described from two male specimens preserved in mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber and recorded as the first known fossil representatives of this extant genus of Microphorinae.
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 galls
