Molecular phylogeny of the subfamily Exoristinae (Diptera, Tachinidae), with discussions on the evolutionary history of female oviposition strategy
TLDR
The transformation of female reproductive habits in the Exoristinae is evaluated, finding support for the hypothesis that ovolarviparity evolved independently from oviparity in several clades, and obtaining different results concerning the evolutionary history of micro‐ovolarvIParity depending on character optimization. Expand
Homology of the metapleuron of Cyclorrhapha, with discussion of the paraphyly of Syrphoidea (Diptera: Aschiza)
TLDR
The morphology of the metathorax of brachyceran Diptera is examined, particularly the metapleuron in the superfamily SyRphoidea comprising two families Syrphidae and Pipunculidae, and the articulations are evaluated and discussed with respect to abdominal flexion of Diptera. Expand
Systematic study of the genus Phorinia Robineau-Desvoidy of the Palearctic, Oriental and Oceanian regions (Diptera : Tachinidae)
TLDR
The analysis reveals that Phorinia is clearly monophyletic and closely related to Ctenophorinia Mesnil within the tribe Exoristini. Expand
Systematic study of the genera Phryno Robineau-Desvoidy and Botria Rondani in the Palearctic Region, with discussions of their phylogenetic positions (Diptera, Tachinidae).

  • 31 January 2013
Six species of Phryno Robineau-Desvoidy and three species of Botria Rondani are revised, including four new species: P. brevicornis sp. nov., P. koreana sp. nov., P. nepalensis sp. nov. and P.Expand
Review of Genera Entomophaga and Proceromyia (Diptera: Tachinidae)
TLDR
The new species are described, the male and female postabdomina are illustrated, and a key to the known species of Entomophaga and Proceromyia is provided. Expand
Life history traits, but not body size, vary systematically along latitudinal gradients on three continents in the widespread yellow dung fly
TLDR
It is concluded that faster growth and development in response to shorter growing seasons at higher latitudes may indirectly counteract expected direct effects of temperature on body‐size, potentially resulting in flat or inconsistent body size clines in nature. Expand
Molecular phylogeny and host use evolution of the genus Exorista Meigen (Diptera: Tachinidae).

  • 2013
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses indicate the existence of two major clades of Exorista, including two genera Parasetigena and Phorocera, and Morphological traits supporting clades indicated by molecular analyses within this genus are evaluated. Expand
Revision of the subgenus Ceranthia Robineau‐Desvoidy of the genus Siphona Meigen of Japan (Diptera: Tachinidae)
TLDR
Japanese species of the subgenus Ceranthia Robineau‐Desvoidy are revised and monophyly of this group is discussed. Expand
Three new species of Exorista Meigen (Diptera: Tachinidae), with a discussion of the evolutionary pattern of host use in the genus
TLDR
Five Exorista species from Malaysia and Indonesia are treated and diagnostic characters of the male postabdomen are illustrated and the five species assigned to Spixomyia Crosskey are assigned. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of subgenera of the genus Exorista Meigen, with a revision of the Japanese species (Diptera: Tachinidae)
TLDR
The results show that the genus Exorista is not monophyletic and that members of the subgenus Spixomyia Crosskey are divided into two clades. Expand
