Phylogenomics resolves the timing and pattern of insect evolution
Toward an insect evolution resolution Insects are the most diverse group of animals, with the largest number of species. However, many of the evolutionary relationships between insect species haveExpand

Cladistic analysis of Neuroptera and their systematic position within Neuropterida (Insecta: Holometabola: Neuropterida: Neuroptera)
A phylogenetic analysis of Neuroptera using thirty‐six predominantly morphological characters of adults and larvae is presented. This is the first computerized cladistic analysis at the ordinalExpand

Phylogenetic relevance of the genital sclerites of Neuropterida (Insecta: Holometabola)
Abstract Segment 9 of male Raphidioptera, comprising tergite, sternite, gonocoxites, gonostyli and gonapophyses, is a benchmark for homologies in the male and female terminalia of the threeExpand

Phylogeny of the Neuropterida (Insecta: Holometabola)
The Neuropterida, with about 6500 known species — living fossils in a way — at the base of the Holometabola (as a sister group of the Coleoptera), comprise Raphidioptera (about 210 species, twoExpand

Phylogeny of the Neuropterida: a first molecular approach
Abstract.  In a first molecular approach specially dedicated to examining the phylogeny of the Neuropterida, two nuclear and two mitochondrial genes were tested: 18S rRNA, translation elongationExpand

The larval head of Nevrorthidae and the phylogeny of Neuroptera (Insecta)
External and internal head structures of larvae of Nevrorthidae were described in detail. The results were compared to conditions found in other representatives of Neuroptera and the other twoExpand

Mitochondrial phylogenomics illuminates the evolutionary history of Neuropterida
Neuroptera (lacewings) and allied orders Megaloptera (dobsonflies, alderflies) and Raphidioptera (snakeflies) are predatory insects and together make up the clade Neuropterida. The higher‐levelExpand

Phylogeny of Myrmeleontiformia based on larval morphology (Neuropterida: Neuroptera)
The suborder Myrmeleontiformia is a derived lineage of lacewings (Insecta: Neuroptera) including the families Psychopsidae, Nemopteridae, Nymphidae, Ascalaphidae and Myrmeleontidae. In particular,Expand

A revision of the family Rhachiberothidae Tjeder, 1959, stat.n. (Neuroptera)
Abstract. The subfamily Rhachiberothinae Tjeder, 1959, originally included in the Berothidae and recently transferred to the Mantispidae, is revised and elevated to family rank. A historical reviewExpand

The evolutionary history of holometabolous insects inferred from transcriptome-based phylogeny and comprehensive morphological data
BackgroundDespite considerable progress in systematics, a comprehensive scenario of the evolution of phenotypic characters in the mega-diverse Holometabola based on a solid phylogenetic hypothesisExpand
