The remarkable antiquity, diversity and ecological significance of arthropods have inspired numerous attempts to resolve their deep phylogenetic history, but the results of two decades of intensive molecular phylogenetics have been mixed. The discovery that terrestrial insects (Hexapoda) are more closely related to aquatic Crustacea than to the terrestrial centipedes and millipedes (Myriapoda) was an early, if exceptional, success. More typically, analyses based on limited samples of taxa and… Expand
A new view of insect-crustacean relationships II. Inferences from expressed sequence tags and comparisons with neural cladistics.
TLDR
This study presents well-supported phylogenies of diverse arthropod and metazoan outgroup taxa obtained from publicly-available databases, integrating results of molecular phylogenetics and neural cladistics to infer that Branchiopoda evolved simplification from a more elaborate ancestor. Expand
The mitochondrial genomes of palaeopteran insects and insights into the early insect relationships
TLDR
A next-generation sequencing approach was used to reconstruct new mitochondrial genomes from 18 species of basal insects, including six representatives of Ephemeroptera and 11 of Odonata, plus one species belonging to Zygentoma, which generally recovered Zygentomas as a monophyletic group, which formed a sister group to Pterygota. Expand
High-level phylogeny of the Coleoptera inferred with mitochondrial genome sequences.
TLDR
Although tree topologies were sensitive to data types and inference methods, mitogenomic data could provide useful information for resolving the Coleoptera phylogeny at various taxonomic levels by using suitable datasets and heterogeneous-site models. Expand
Dating the arthropod tree based on large-scale transcriptome data.
TLDR
A Precambrian origin of arthropods and other metazoan phyla is still supported and the applicability of large datasets of random nuclear sequences for approximating the timing of multicellular animal evolution is demonstrated. Expand
Phylogenomic analysis of Copepoda (Arthropoda, Crustacea) reveals unexpected similarities with earlier proposed morphological phylogenies
TLDR
The first phylogenomic study of Copepoda provides new insights into taxonomic relationships and represents a valuable resource that improves understanding of copepod evolution and their wide range of ecological adaptations. Expand
Phylotranscriptomics resolves ancient divergences in the Lepidoptera
TLDR
A greatly expanded gene sampling of RNA‐Seq is brought to bear on nonditrysian phylogeny, recovering a novel hypothesis for early glossatan relationships that is the most strongly supported to date. Expand
Arthropod Phylogenetics in Light of Three Novel Millipede (Myriapoda: Diplopoda) Mitochondrial Genomes with Comments on the Appropriateness of Mitochondrial Genome Sequence Data for Inferring Deep Level Relationships
TLDR
The variety of compositions and evolution of myriapod mitochondrial genomes are shown to be more complex than previously thought and the use of mitochondrial protein-coding regions in deep arthropod phylogenetics appears problematic. Expand
A Phylogenomic Solution to the Origin of Insects by Resolving Crustacean-Hexapod Relationships
TLDR
The first phylogenomic study specifically addressing the origins of hexapods is presented, including transcriptomes for two species each of Cephalocarida and Remipedia and it is concluded that terrestrialization of Hexapoda probably occurred in the late Cambrian to early Ordovician. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships among insect orders based on three nuclear protein-coding gene sequences.
TLDR
The interordinal relationships within Holometabola are well resolved and strongly supported that the order Hymenoptera is the sister lineage to all other holometabolous insects. Expand
Ecdysozoan Mitogenomics: Evidence for a Common Origin of the Legged Invertebrates, the Panarthropoda
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses based on concatenated amino acid coding sequences support a monophyletic origin of the Ecdysozoa and the position of Priapulida as the sister group of a monophysletic Panarthropoda (Tardigrada plus Onychophora plus Arthropoda). Expand

Mitochondrial protein phylogeny joins myriapods with chelicerates
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of conserved regions from the arthropod mitochondrial proteome yields highly resolved and congruent trees and proposes a model to explain the apparently parallel evolution of similar head morphologies in insects and myriapods. Expand
Resolving arthropod phylogeny: exploring phylogenetic signal within 41 kb of protein-coding nuclear gene sequence.
TLDR
This study attempts to resolve relationships among and within the four basal arthropod lineages and to assess the widespread expectation that remaining phylogenetic problems will yield to increasing amounts of sequence data. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of mitochondrial protein coding genes confirms the reciprocal paraphyly of Hexapoda and Crustacea
TLDR
The finding of the reciprocal paraphyly of Hexapoda and Crustacea suggests an evolutionary scenario in which the acquisition of the hexapod condition may have occurred several times independently in lineages descending from different crustacean-like ancestors, possibly as a consequence of the process of terrestrialization. Expand
Myriapod Monophyly and Relationships Among Myriapod Classes Based on Nearly Complete 28S and 18S rDNA Sequences
TLDR
This study combined nearly complete 28S and 18S ribosomal RNA gene sequences to estimate the phylogenetic position of Myriapoda and phylogenetic relationships among four myriapod classes and yielded moderate to strong support for the monophyly of MyRIapoda. Expand
Ecdysozoan phylogeny and Bayesian inference: first use of nearly complete 28S and 18S rRNA gene sequences to classify the arthropods and their kin.
TLDR
Better taxonomic resolution and recovery of established taxa were obtained here, especially with Bayesian inference, than in previous parsimony-based studies that used 18S rRNA sequences, and should revive interest in using rRNA genes to study arthropod and ecdysozoan relationships. Expand
Ribosomal DNA phylogeny of the major extant arthropod classes and the evolution of myriapods
TLDR
Using nuclear ribosomal gene sequences for constructing a molecular phylogeny, this work provides strong evidence that the crustaceans and not the myriapods should be considered to be the sister group of the insects. Expand
Elongation factor-2: a useful gene for arthropod phylogenetics.
TLDR
Elongation factor-2 is now the second protein-encoding, nuclear gene (in addition to RNA polymerase II) to support Pancrustacea over Atelocerata, and the discrepancy between results derived from molecular and morphological data deserves greater attention. Expand
Arthropod phylogeny based on eight molecular loci and morphology
TLDR
The optimal ‘total evidence’ cladogram supports the crustacean–hexapod clade, recognizes pycnogonids as sister to other euarthropods, and indicates monophyly of Myriapoda and Mandibulata. Expand
Revealing pancrustacean relationships: Phylogenetic analysis of ribosomal protein genes places Collembola (springtails) in a monophyletic Hexapoda and reinforces the discrepancy between mitochondrial and nuclear DNA markers
TLDR
The analyses clearly suggest that Hexapoda is monophyletic, which underpins the inconsistency between nuclear and mitochondrial datasets when analyzing pancrustacean relationships. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the major arthropod groups indicates polyphyly of crustaceans and a new hypothesis for the origin of hexapods.
TLDR
A phylogeny of the arthropods was inferred from analyses of amino acid sequences derived from the nuclear genes encoding elongation factor-1 alpha and the largest subunit of RNA polymerase II using maximum-parsimony, neighbor-joining, and maximum-likelihood methods, providing support for a Hexapoda/Branchiopoda clade, thus arguing against the monophyly of the traditionally defined Atelocerata.
