Evolution of lacewings and allied orders using anchored phylogenomics (Neuroptera, Megaloptera, Raphidioptera)
TLDR
Analysis of anchored hybrid enrichment (AHE) data under a variety of analytical parameters recovered a well‐resolved and strongly supported tree for the higher phylogeny of Neuropterida that is highly concordant with previous estimates based on DNA sequence data.
Mitochondrial phylogenomics illuminates the evolutionary history of Neuropterida
TLDR
A robust, fully resolved phylogeny and divergence time estimation for Neuropterida is presented with strong statistical support for almost all nodes and competing hypotheses regarding the life style of early neuropteridan larvae as either aquatic or terrestrial are evaluated.
A new genus of mantidflies discovered in the Oriental region, with a higher‐level phylogeny of Mantispidae (Neuroptera) using DNA sequences and morphology
A remarkable new genus and two new species of Mantispidae (Neuroptera) are described from the Oriental region. Allomantispa Liu, Wu, Winterton & Ohl gen.n., currently including A. tibetana Liu, Wu &
The First Mitochondrial Genome for Caddisfly (Insecta: Trichoptera) with Phylogenetic Implications
TLDR
A phylogenomic analysis was carried out based on the mt genomic sequences of 13 mt protein coding genes and two rRNA genes of 24 species belonging to eight holometabolous orders and both maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference analyses highly support the sister relationship between Trichoptera and Lepidoptera.
The First Mitochondrial Genomes of Antlion (Neuroptera: Myrmeleontidae) and Split-footed Lacewing (Neuroptera: Nymphidae), with Phylogenetic Implications of Myrmeleontiformia
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis based on the mt genomic data for all Neuropterida sequenced thus far, supports the monophyly of Myrmeleontiformia and the sister relationship between Ascalaphidae and Myr meleontidae.
Phylogeny of pleasing lacewings (Neuroptera: Dilaridae) with a revised generic classification and description of a new subfamily
TLDR
A revised generic classification of Dilaridae is proposed, with a new subfamily erected based on its remarkably different morphological features from the other dilarid subfamilies, and some little‐known species from Asia and Mid‐Cretaceous Burmese amber are described.
The phylogeny of brown lacewings (Neuroptera: Hemerobiidae) reveals multiple reductions in wing venation
TLDR
The phylogenetic hypothesis and divergence times analysis suggest that extant hemerobiids originated around the end of the Triassic and evolved as three distinct clades that diverged from one another during the Late Jurassic to Early Cretaceous.
Phylogenetic relationships among tribes of the green lacewing subfamily Chrysopinae recovered based on mitochondrial phylogenomics
TLDR
The results suggest that Chrysopinae sans Nothancyla verreauxi evolved as two reciprocally monophyletic lineages formed by stem members of the tribes Leucochrysini plus Belonopterygini on one hand, and the stemMembers of Ankylopterychini plus Chrysopini on the other.
The First Mitochondrial Genome for the Fishfly Subfamily Chauliodinae and Implications for the Higher Phylogeny of Megaloptera
TLDR
Both maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference analyses highly support the monophyly of Megaloptera, which was recovered as the sister of Neuroptera in a phylogenomic analysis carried out based on the mt genomic sequences of 13 mt protein-coding genes and two rRNA genes of nine Neuropterida species.
Early Evolution and Historical Biogeography of Fishflies (Megaloptera: Chauliodinae): Implications from a Phylogeny Combining Fossil and Extant Taxa
TLDR
The phylogenetic and dispersal-vicariance (DIVA) analyses suggest Pangaean origin and global distribution of fishflies before the Middle Jurassic, and reconstructs the first phylogenetic hypothesis including all fossil and extant genera worldwide.
