Exploring Genetic Divergence in a Species-Rich Insect Genus Using 2790 DNA Barcodes
It is suggested that a 4–5% threshold is appropriate to delineate species of Tanytarsus non-biting midges, and deep intraspecific divergences exist in some species complexes, and need further taxonomic studies using appropriate nuclear markers as well as morphological and ecological data to be resolved. Expand
DNA barcodes successfully delimit morphospecies in a superdiverse insect genus
Nine species complexes with deep intraspecific divergences indicated 18 potentially cryptic species, which require further taxonomic research including complete life histories and nuclear genetic data to be resolved. Expand
Review of Dicrotendipes Kieffer from China (Diptera, Chironomidae)
The genus Dicrotendipes Kieffer from China, including 8 species, is reviewed, including two new species, and a key to the males of DicroTendipes in China is given. Expand
A new species of Manoa Fittkau (Diptera: Chironomidae), with DNA barcodes from Xianju National Park, Oriental China.
The genus Manoa and the tribe Pseudochironomini are recorded from the Oriental region for the first time and the latter associated with the male by standard DNA barcodes. Expand
Molecular phylogeny and temporal diversification of Tanytarsus van der Wulp (Diptera: Chironomidae) support generic synonymies, a new classification and centre of origin
The phylogeny of Tanytarsus sensu lato is reconstructed based on the combined analysis of five nuclear markers, including both ribosomal (18S) and protein‐coding (AATS1, CAD, PGD and TPI) genes, and the monophyly of some established species groups is well supported, while other groups are refuted or remain uncertain. Expand
Five mitochondrial genomes of black fungus gnats (Sciaridae) and their phylogenetic implications.
Phylogenetic relationships within the Sciaridae family were reconstructed based on these newly sequenced species, combined with the published mitogenomes of related families, and recovered the topology within Sciaroidea as Cecidomyiidae. Expand
First record of Dicrotendipes inouei Hashimoto, 1984 (Diptera: Chironomidae) from China
Dicrotendipes Kieffer, 1913 is a cosmopolitan genus, occurring in all zoogeographical regions except Antarctica. Adults of some Dicrotendipes are considered pests due to large numbers of individualsExpand
DNA barcodes and morphology reveal unrecognized species in Chironomidae (Diptera)
Using DNA barcodes, a number of potential species are uncovered within the Tanytarsus curticornis and TanyTarsus heusdensis species complexes and detected morphological differences a posteriori that support the description of new species. Expand
Exploring species boundaries with multiple genetic loci using empirical data from non‐biting midges
Five distinct species are well supported in the Tanytarsus heusdensis species complex, including two species new to science, and results show that species delimitation based on multiple nuclear DNA markers is largely concordant with morphological variation and delimitations using a single locus, for example, the COI barcode. Expand
Polypedilum (Cerobregma) heberti sp. n. (Diptera: Chironomidae) from Gaoligong Mountains, Yunnan, China.
DNA barcodes and morphology recognize a new non-biting midge within the genus Polypedilum, which is described and illustrated based on an adult male from Gaoligong Mountains, Yunnan, China. Expand
