Delimiting species of Protaphorura (Collembola: Onychiuridae): integrative evidence based on morphology, DNA sequences and geography
TLDR
The potential benefits of integrative taxonomy, particularly simultaneous use of molecular/geographical tools, are highlighted as a powerful way of ascertaining the true diversity of the Onychiuridae.
Dental scales could occur in all scaled subfamilies of Entomobryidae (Collembola): new definition of Entomobryinae with description of a new genus and three new species
TLDR
In this new phylogenetic hypothesis, Entomobryinae has the greatest diversity in scale morphology and distribution among scaled collembolan groups, indicating multiple independent origins of scales.
A High-quality Draft Genome Assembly of Sinella curviseta: A Soil Model Organism (Collembola)
TLDR
The authors' high-quality reference genome of S. curviseta provides the genetic basis for future investigations in evolutionary biology, soil ecology, and ecotoxicology.
Streamlining universal single‐copy orthologue and ultraconserved element design: A case study in Collembola
TLDR
This study demonstrates the feasibility of generating thousands of universal markers from highly efficient whole‐genome sequencing, providing a valuable resource for genome‐scale investigations in evolutionary biology and ecology.
Species delimitation in the morphologically conserved Coecobrya (Collembola: Entomobryidae): A case study integrating morphology and molecular traits to advance current taxonomy
TLDR
This study aimed to integrate both morphological and molecular character traits to explore the collembolan Coecobrya group across geographically separated cave populations, and described seven new species corresponding to seven candidate morphospecies.
Colouration, chaetotaxy and molecular data provide species-level resolution in a species complex of Dicranocentrus (Collembola : Entomobryidae)
TLDR
An integrative approach to the genus Dicranocentrus in China is taken, where several members of the genus have been morphologically grouped as a species complex based on having paired outer teeth on unguis and seven colour patterns and revealed that speciation events likely occurred during the late Neogene.
Molecular phylogeny of Entomobrya (Collembola: Entomobryidae) from China: Color pattern groups and multiple origins
TLDR
This study conducted a multilocus phylogeny and topology tests with likelihood and Bayesian algorithms, and accordingly demonstrated the non‐monophyly of Chinese Entomobrya, which originated mainly from Palearctic China in the Paleocene and Eocene.
Phylomitogenomic analyses on collembolan higher taxa with enhanced taxon sampling and discussion on method selection
TLDR
It is shown that mitochondrial genomes could provide important information for reconstructing the relationships among Collembola when suitable analytical approaches are implemented and the combination of nucleotide sequences, partitioning model and exclusion of third codon positions performed better in generating more reliable tree topology and higher node supports than others.
Revealing species diversity of Tomocerus ocreatus complex ( Collembola : Tomoceridae ) : integrative species delimitation and evaluation of taxonomic characters
TLDR
This study narrows species boundaries within the ocreatus complex and provides an example of how molecular approaches and detailed morphological examination can jointly benefit the exploration of biodiversity and the taxonomy of morphologically conservative groups of Collembola.
