Abstract The moth‐fly genus Neotelmatoscopus Tonnoir (Diptera: Psychodidae) has been revised to include 13 species. Three new species are described: N. aurulentussp.n. from northern Thailand, and N. acutussp.n. and N. rotundussp.n. from Sri Lanka. Previously unknown life stages of N. horai Tonnoir and N. inachus Quate are described, and redescriptions of larvae, pupae and adults of N. horai, N. indicus (Feuerborn), N. bifidens Quate and N. inachus are given. Five described species are… 

Nomenclature and taxonomy of Telmatoscopus Eaton and Seoda Enderlein; with a discussion of parameral evolution in Paramormiini and Pericomaini (Diptera: Psychodidae, Psychodinae).

TLDR
The genus Seoda Enderlein, 1935 is revived for the genus comprising Pericoma labeculosa Eaton, 1893, P. morula and their relatives and four new synonymies are proposed.

Two new species of Nototelmatoscopus (Jozifekia), with records of three other species from Thailand (Diptera: Psychodidae)

TLDR
Two new species of this subgenus are described from the Chiang Mai Province in northern Thailand, both based on single males: Nototelmatoscopus (Jozifekia) acutistylus sp.

A new genus of Psychodinae (Diptera, Psychodidae) from phytotelmata in a Honduran cloud forest.

TLDR
The fourth instar larva, pupa and adult male of a new species of Psychodinae, Moruseodina cusucoensis gen. et sp.

Phylogeny of psychodid subfamilies (Diptera: Psychodidae) inferred from nuclear DNA sequences with a review of morphological evidence for relationships

TLDR
One compelling synapomorphy of the male genitalia supporting a relationship between Phlebotominae and Psychodinae is the presence of articulated surstyli with apical retinacula, which is present and sometimes developed into clasping structures in males of other subfamilies.

Molecular phylogeny of moth flies (Diptera, Psychodidae, Psychodinae) revisited, with a revised tribal classification

TLDR
A molecular phylogeny of sequences compiled from all previous molecular phylogenies relevant to Psychodinae, as well as some hitherto unpublished sequences yielded a well‐resolved tree which was unambiguous for all previously contentious points.

Review of the Afrotropical genus Neomaruina Vaillant (Diptera, Psychodidae, Psychodinae)

TLDR
The genus Neomaruina is diagnosed, with several new apomorphic characters recognized, and the distribution of the genus within the Afrotropical region is discussed.

Descriptions of Pupae of Three Psychodinae Species (Diptera: Psychodidae) from Argentina

TLDR
These are the first pupae described of any species of the genus Alepia Enderlein, belonging to the subfamily Psychodinae, being distinguished by some features in the last segment and by respiratory trumpet.

Moth flies (Diptera, Psychodidae) from Finnmark, northern Norway

TLDR
Records of 18 Psychodidae species collected in Finnmark, northern Norway in 2010 are presented and P. alticola is redescribed and figured and Psychoda dolomitica Salamanna & Sarà, 1980 syn.

How drain flies manage to almost never get washed away

TLDR
It is found that drain flies’ remarkable ability to evade such potentially lethal threats does not stem primarily from an evolved behavioral response, but rather from a unique hair covering with a hierarchical roughness that imparts superhydrophobicity against large droplets and pools and antiwetting properties against micron-sized droplet and condensation.
