On the head morphology of Tetraphalerus, the phylogeny of Archostemata and the basal branching events in Coleoptera
Internal and external features of Tetraphalerus bruchi were studied using X‐ray microtomography (µ‐CT) and other techniques, and head structures were described in detail. µ‐Ct is highly efficient forExpand

Head structures of Priacma serrata leconte (coleptera, archostemata) inferred from X‐ray tomography
Internal and external features of the head of Priacma serrata were studied with X‐ray microtomography and with histological methods. The comparison of both techniques shows that X‐ray tomography is aExpand

Morphological and molecular evidence converge upon a robust phylogeny of the megadiverse Holometabola
We present the largest morphological character set ever compiled for Holometabola. This was made possible through an optimized acquisition of data. Based on our analyses and recently publishedExpand

Fossil insects from the Late Oligocene Enspel Lagerstätte and their palaeobiogeographic and palaeoclimatic significance
Fossil insects can provide unique insights into evolutionary history, and their study has become increasingly important in recent decades. In this paper, we give an overview of the insectExpand

Larval morphology and phylogenetic position of Micromalthus debilis LeConte (Coleoptera: Micromalthidae)
Abstract External and internal structures of the cerambycoid and triungulin larvae of Micromalthus debilis are described and compared to features found in larvae of other groups of Coleoptera. TheExpand

The head morphology of Ascioplaga mimeta (Coleoptera: Archostemata) and the phylogeny of Archostemata
Internal and external features of the head of Ascioplaga mimeta (Coleoptera: Archostemata) were studied with micro X-ray computertomography (µCT) and nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (NMRI). TheseExpand

First fossil larvae of Berothidae (Neuroptera) from Baltic amber, with notes on the biology and termitophily of the family.
Four fossil larvae of Berothidae (Neuroptera) from Baltic amber are described in detail, and the main characters of a fifth larva are discussed briefly. Two first instars very probably belong to theExpand

Late Palaeozoic Paoliida is the sister group of Dictyoptera (Insecta: Neoptera)
Paoliida is an insect group of highly controversial composition and equally controversial affinities. Based on comprehensive reinvestigations we propose a new delimitation of the insect orderExpand

The species‐level phylogeny of archostematan beetles—where do Micromalthus debilis and Crowsoniella relicta belong?
A species‐level phylogenetic analysis comprising 37 of the 45 known extant species of archostematan beetles and a total of 110 morphological characters from adults and larvae is presented. For theExpand
