Phylogeny of Myrmeleontiformia based on larval morphology (Neuropterida: Neuroptera)
The results suggest that Ascalaphidae may not be monophyletic, as they collapse into an unresolved polytomy under the Bayesian analysis, and the recovered phylogenetic relationships diverge from the traditional classification scheme for ascalaphids.
Chromosome numbers in antlions (Myrmeleontidae) and owlflies (Ascalaphidae) (Insecta, Neuroptera)
It is shown here that antlions and owlflies share a simple sex chromosome system XY/XX; a similar range of chromosome numbers, 2n = 14-26 and 2n= 18-22 respectively; and a peculiar distant pairing of sex chromosomes in male meiosis.
Afirst comprehensive inventory ofAscalaphidae, Palparidae, and Myrmeleontidae (Insecta: Neuroptera) of Northeastern Nigeria with description of two new species and an overview of genus BankisusNavás
In the process of assessing the geographical distribution of species present in Northeastern Nigeria, six species, as well as the generaMyrmecaelurus and Cueta and the tribe Nesoleontini, are reported for the first time from Burkina Faso.
New antlions (Insecta: Neuroptera: Myrmeleontidae) from the mid-Cretaceous of Myanmar and their phylogenetic implications
A phylogenetic analysis of the Burmese amber antlions shows that the antlion species presently described belong to different major clades across the phylogenetic tree, suggesting a diverse palaeofauna of this family from the mid-Cretaceous of Myanmar.
Type specimens of Neuropterida in the Hope Entomological Collection, Oxford University Museum of Natural History
The Hope Entomological Collection in the Oxford University Museum of Natural History holds a large and diverse array of historically valuable type specimens for species in the superorder Neuropterida (Megaloptera, Neuroptera, and Raphidioptera), and to help stabilize the nomenclature, new lectotype designations are made.
Owlflies are derived antlions: anchored phylogenomics supports a new phylogeny and classification of Myrmeleontidae (Neuroptera)
A new classification for the antlions is proposed, which synonymizes Ascalaphidae with Myrmeleontidae and divides the family into four subfamilies and 17 tribes, which do not support the current taxonomy.
Oldest new genus of Myrmeleontidae (Neuroptera) from the Eocene Green River Formation.
The discovery of this species is consistent with estimations of relatively dry and warm conditions during deposition of the upper Parachute Creek Member of the Green River Formation.
Taxonomy and phylogeny of the genera Gymnocnemia Schneider, 1845, and Megistopus Rambur, 1842, with remarks on the systematization of the tribe Nemoleontini (Neuroptera, Myrmeleontidae)
A morphology-based phylogenetic analysis demonstrated that M. mirabilis should actually be assigned to the genus Gymnocnemia, as well as supporting the subdivision of the tribe Nemoleontini in two subclades based on morphology of male and female genitalia.
Note on some antlions from Mozambique (Neuroptera: Myrmeleontidae)
Abstract Faunal data concerning 4 poorly known species from Southern Mozambique are reported. Myrmeleon lanceolatus Rambur, 1842 is reported for the first time from Mozambique.
