Insect orders have been defined and stable for decades, with few notable exceptions (e.g., Blattodea and Psocoptera). One of the few remaining questions of order-level monophyly is that of Mecoptera in respect to the phylogenetic placement of Siphonaptera (fleas). We used a large set of transcriptomic nucleotide sequence data representing 56 species and more than 3,000 single-copy genes to resolve the evolutionary history of Antliophora, including fleas (Siphonaptera), scorpionflies and… Expand
