Background Yponomeutoidea, one of the early-diverging lineages of ditrysian Lepidoptera, comprise about 1,800 species worldwide, including notable pests and insect-plant interaction models. Yponomeutoids were one of the earliest lepidopteran clades to evolve external feeding and to extensively colonize herbaceous angiosperms. Despite the group’s economic importance, and its value for tracing early lepidopteran evolution, the biodiversity and phylogeny of Yponomeutoidea have been relatively… Expand
First mitochondrial genome from Yponomeutidae (Lepidoptera, Yponomeutoidea) and the phylogenetic analysis for Lepidoptera
TLDR
Multiple phylogenetic analyses confirm the position of Y. montanatus in Yponomeutoidea, but the superfamily-level relationships in the Macroheterocera clade in Lepidoptera recovered herein show considerable difference with that recovered in previous mitogenomic studies, raising the necessity of extensive phylogenetic investigation when more mitogenomes become available for this clade. Expand
Elusive ditrysian phylogeny: an account of combining systematized morphology with molecular data (Lepidoptera)
TLDR
The large morphological dataset provides information on the diversity and distribution of morphological traits in Ditrysia, and can be used in future research on the evolution of these traits, in identification keys and in identification of fossil Lepidoptera. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the hyperdiverse genus Sarcophaga (Diptera: Sarcophagidae), and comparison between algorithms for identification of rogue taxa
TLDR
Molecular data from the genes COI and 28S are used to reconstruct the phylogeny of Sarcophaga based on the most comprehensive sampling for the group to date, which finds Nearctic taxa were found to be the earliest diverging lineages, followed by a subsequent diversification of Old World faunas. Expand
A Large-Scale, Higher-Level, Molecular Phylogenetic Study of the Insect Order Lepidoptera (Moths and Butterflies)
TLDR
This study highlights the challenge of finding optimal topologies when analyzing hundreds of taxa and shows that some nodes get strong support only when analysis is restricted to nonsynonymous change, while total change is necessary for strong support of others. Expand
Phylogeny of the symphytan grade of Hymenoptera: new pieces into the old jigsaw(fly) puzzle
TLDR
A well supported phylogenetic structure is recovered for these early herbivorous hymenopteran clades, with new information regarding the monophyly of Xyelidae, the placement of the superfamily Pamphilioidea as sister to Tenthredinoidea + Unicalcarida, and the interrelationships among the tenthredinoid families Tenthredinidae, Cimbicidae, and Diprionidae. Expand
Beyond Wallace: a new lineage of Chrysorthenches (Lepidoptera: Yponomeutoidea: Glyphipterigidae) reveals a journey tracking its host-plants, Podocarpus (Pinopsida: Podocarpaceae)
TLDR
It is suggested that ancestral Chrysorthenches colonized Podocarpus and later shifted to other podocarp genera, and biogeographical patterns of Chrysortenches show that they evolved long after the Podoc carpaceae radiation, which was supported in a maximum likelihood phylogeny of DNA barcodes from ten yponomeutoids.

Morphology-Based Phylogeny and Biogeography of Wockia (Lepidoptera: Urodidae) with Description of a New Species from Japan and South Korea

  • 2014
TLDR
Optimal ancestral area reconstruction implemented in DIVA resulted in different hypotheses for Wockia, depending on how to constrain the maximum number of areas, suggesting that Wocki sensu stricto originated in temperate East Asia and then dispersed into the Oriental region, North America, and Europe. Expand
A molecular phylogeny and revised higher‐level classification for the leaf‐mining moth family Gracillariidae and its implications for larval host‐use evolution
TLDR
An exploratory mapping of larval host‐use traits on the phylogeny shows strong conservation of modes of leaf mining but much higher lability of associations with host plant orders and families, suggesting that host shifts could play a significant role in gracillariid diversification. Expand
First mitochondrial genome of the superfamily Choreutoidea and its phylogenetic implications
TLDR
The nearly complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of Choreutis emplecta is sequenced, the first representative from Choreutoidea, and was demonstrated to be an early-diverging lineage of Apoditrysia. Expand
A redescription of Antispastis clarkei Pastrana (Lepidoptera, Glyphipterigidae) immature stages, with notes on the life history and phylogenetic placement of the genus
TLDR
The egg, larva and pupa of A. clarkei Pastrana, previously known only from Argentina, are described and illustrated with the aid of optical and scanning electron microscopy, and family placement is reassessed based on comparison of morphology and DNA sequences with closely related lineages. Expand

Molecular Phylogeny of the Small Ermine Moth Genus Yponomeuta (Lepidoptera, Yponomeutidae) in the Palaearctic
TLDR
The phylogeny of the Palaearctic members of the small ermine moth genus Yponomeuta is reconstructed to provide a solid framework for studies in the evolution of phytophagous insects and their host-plant associations, and to obtain insight into the history of host- plant use and the biogeography of the genus.

A Molecular Phylogeny for the Leaf-Roller Moths (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) and Its Implications for Classification and Life History Evolution
TLDR
The first robustly supported phylogeny for Tortricidae is presented and a revised classification in which all of the sampled tribes are now monophyletic is presented, consistent with a hypothesized Gondwanan origin for the family. Expand
A molecular phylogeny for the pyraloid moths (Lepidoptera: Pyraloidea) and its implications for higher‐level classification
TLDR
This work presents the most detailed molecular estimate of relationships to date across the subfamilies of Pyraloidea, and assess its concordance with previous morphology‐based hypotheses. Expand
Toward reconstructing the evolution of advanced moths and butterflies (Lepidoptera: Ditrysia): an initial molecular study
TLDR
The results corroborate the broad outlines of the current working phylogenetic hypothesis for Ditrysia, demonstrate that some prominent features of that hypothesis, including the position of the butterflies, need revision, and resolve the majority of family and subfamily relationships within superfamilies as thus far sampled.

Phylogenetic Relationships Within Heliodinidae and Systematics of Moths Formerly Assigned to Heliodines Stainton (Lepidoptera: Yponomeutoidea)
TLDR
Four uniquely derived autapomorphies for the Heliodinidae are identified: M vein of forewing two-branched, presumably with M3 lost; tegumen greatly expanded posteriorly, forming a sclerotized, hollow tube;ventral branches of apophyses anteriores originating from a fused transverse bridge; and pupa with long, stiff dorsal and lateral setae.

A phylogenetic study of the ‘bombycoid complex’ (Lepidoptera) using five protein‐coding nuclear genes, with comments on the problem of macrolepidopteran phylogeny
TLDR
Analysis of the combined data by likelihood and parsimony upholds monophyly for the bombycoid complex and for Bombycoidea sensu stricto (includes Anthelidae, see below), but with weak bootstrap support. Expand
Comprehensive gene and taxon coverage elucidates radiation patterns in moths and butterflies
TLDR
A rigorous and comprehensive analysis of lepidopteran affinities found Ditrysia to be a monophyletic taxon with the clade Tischerioidea + Palaephatoidea being the sister group of it and Butterflies were found to be more closely related to ‘microlepidopterans’ groups of moths rather than the clades Macrolepidoptera, where they have traditionally been placed.

Increased gene sampling yields robust support for higher‐level clades within Bombycoidea (Lepidoptera)
TLDR
Based on the robustly resolved results, the classification of Bombycoidea is revised: the family Bombycidae is restricted to its nominate subfamily, and its tribe Epiini is elevated to subfamily rank (Epiinae stat.rev.), whereas the bombycid subfamily Phiditiinae is reinstated as a separate family.
