Cytotaxonomy, Morphology and Ecology of the Simulium nobile Species Group (Diptera: Simuliidae) in Thailand
TLDR
The polytene chromosomes of 512 larvae of the Simulium nobile species group collected from 16 stream sites in northern, central and southern Thailand were examined and the morphology of these taxa is described based on the gill filaments and the color of the antennae and female genitalia. Expand
Cytosystematics of the Simulium tuberosum group (Diptera: Simuliidae) in Thailand.
TLDR
The polytene chromosomes of 3347 larvae of the Simulium tuberosum group in Asia were analysed, representing the largest ever cytogenetic study of black flies in the Oriental Region and revealed 17 cytogenetically distinct taxa in Thailand, plus an 18th in China. Expand
Geographical versus ecological isolation of closely related black flies (Diptera: Simuliidae) inferred from phylogeny, geography, and ecology
TLDR
Most closely related species in the subgenus Gomphostilbia overlap geographically, suggesting the possibility of sympatric speciation driven by ecological divergence and the monophyly of the Simulium ceylonicum species group, but not of theSimulium batoense species group. Expand
Morphotaxonomy of the Simulium ( Simulium ) tuberosum species group (Diptera: Simuliidae) in Thailand
TLDR
Identification keys to larvae, pupae, males, and females are provided, along with diagnostic characters for each taxon and a morphology-based phylogeny for Simulium tuberosum species group in Thailand. Expand
Who is biting you? DNA barcodes reveal cryptic diversity in human-biting black flies (Diptera: Simuliidae).
Black flies (Simuliidae) are important biting insects and vectors of diseases agents of humans and livestock. Thus, understanding the taxonomy and biodiversity of these insects is crucial for controlExpand
Molecular detection of Leucocytozoon (Apicomplexa: Haemosporida) in black flies (Diptera: Simuliidae) from Thailand.
TLDR
The results indicate that two black fly species of the subgenus Gomphostilbia in Thailand are possible vectors of Leucocytozoon transmitted among poultry and wild birds in the country. Expand
Molecular detection of Trypanosoma (Kinetoplastida: Trypanosomatidae) in black flies (Diptera: Simuliidae) from Thailand.
TLDR
All trypanosome DNA found in black flies from Thailand is closely related to Trypanosoma avium with >99% sequence similarity, and it is suspected that these insects are potential vectors of avian Trypenosoma. Expand
Molecular identification of blood meal sources in black flies (Diptera: Simuliidae) suspected as Leucocytozoon vectors.
TLDR
Cytochrome b gene sequences used for identification of blood meal sources of two black fly taxa indicate a high possibility that the S. asakoae complex and S. chumpornense are natural vectors of Leucocytozoon, a hemosporidian blood protozoa genus in black flies. Expand
A new black fly (Diptera: Simuliidae) species of the subgenus Asiosimulium Takaoka Choochote from Thailand.
TLDR
A new black fly species of the subgenus Asiosimulium Takaoka Choochote of the genus Simulium was recognized from northeastern Thailand based on morphology, mitochondrial DNA and ecology and genetic distance and phylogenetic analyses clearly differentiated the two species. Expand
