Phylogenetic relationships of Erotylidae (pleasing fungus beetles) were inferred based on DNA sequence data. Relationships of clades within Erotylidae were examined, as was the relationship of the entire family to Languriidae (lizard beetles). 18S and 28S ribosomal DNA were sequenced for sixty-one taxa repre- senting major erotylid lineages and outgroups. Phylogenetic analyses under vary- ing parameter settings using standard parsimony and likelihood techniques were performed. These data… CONTINUE READING
