We evaluated sequence diversity in the mitochondrial cytochrome-c oxidase I (COI; EC 1.9.3.1) gene as a tool for resolving differences among species of Arctic springtails. The Collembola examined in this analysis were collected from Igloolik, Cornwallis, and Somerset islands and included representatives from all major families found in the Arctic. Members of 13 genera and 19 species were examined, including 4 species of the genus Folsomia and 3 species of the genus Hypogastrura. In all cases… Expand

Exploring Genetic Divergence in a Species-Rich Insect Genus Using 2790 DNA Barcodes
TLDR
It is suggested that a 4–5% threshold is appropriate to delineate species of Tanytarsus non-biting midges, and deep intraspecific divergences exist in some species complexes, and need further taxonomic studies using appropriate nuclear markers as well as morphological and ecological data to be resolved. Expand
Identification of Nearctic black flies using DNA barcodes (Diptera: Simuliidae)
TLDR
It is concluded that DNA barcoding is an effective method for species identification and discovery of cryptic diversity in black flies. Expand
Testing use of mitochondrial COI sequences for the identification and phylogenetic analysis of New Zealand caddisflies (Trichoptera)
TLDR
It is concluded that sequence variation in the COI gene locus is an effective tool for the identification of New Zealand caddisfly species, and can provide preliminary phylogenetic inferences. Expand
DNA barcoding of genus Toxoptera Koch (Hemiptera: Aphididae): Identification and molecular phylogeny inferred from mitochondrial COI sequences
TLDR
Four species of Toxoptera assembled a clade with low support in maximum‐parsimony (MP) analysis, maximum‐likelihood (ML) analysis and Bayesian phylogenetic trees, which implied that DNA barcoding was successful in discrimination of aphid species with similar morphology. Expand
DNA barcodes and molecular diagnostics for distinguishing introduced Xyleborus (Coleoptera: Scolytinae) species in China
TLDR
This study validated the effectiveness of barcoding for the identification of Xyleborus species and supported the inference that the barcode variation within species of insects is somewhat higher than interspecific ones. Expand
DNA-based species delineation in tropical beetles using mitochondrial and nuclear markers
TLDR
The results suggest that DNA-assisted taxonomy will not require more than a short fragment of mtDNA to provide a largely accurate picture of species boundaries in these groups, and that clusters of close relatives can be identified readily in the sequence variation obtained in field collected samples. Expand
Challenging species delimitation in Collembola: cryptic diversity among common springtails unveiled by DNA barcoding
TLDR
Several populations of six well characterised species of springtails were sequenced using the COI barcode fragment as a contribution to the global Collembola barcoding campaign, and each species showed high intraspecific divergence. Expand
Low resolution of mitochondrial COI barcodes for identifying species of the genus Larus (Charadriiformes: Laridae)
TLDR
Haplotype analyses showed that the COI barcodes could not distinguish some interspecific haplotypes from 6 of 12 Larus species because there were no nucleotide substitutions among their COI haplotypes. Expand
DNA barcoding Australasian chondrichthyans: results and potential uses in conservation
TLDR
It is concluded that cox1 barcoding can be used to identify shark and ray species with a very high degree of accuracy and also highlights some taxonomic issues that need to be investigated further. Expand
DNA barcoding and phylogenetic analysis of Pectinidae (Mollusca: Bivalvia) based on mitochondrial COI and 16S rRNA genes
TLDR
The results are almost consistent with Waller's classification, which was proposed on the basis of shell microstructure and the morphological characteristics of juveniles, and evidenced that these scallop species can be efficiently identified by DNA barcoding. Expand

Large amounts of genetic divergence among Italian species of the genus Orchesella (Insecta, collembola) and the relationships of two new species.
The phylogenetic position of two putative new species of the collembolan genus Orchesella was investigated by comparison with four other Italian species of the genus using a fragment of theExpand

Evolution of the Mitochondrial Cytochrome Oxidase II Gene in Collembola
TLDR
The collembolan COII gene showed the lowest A +T content of all insects so far examined, confirming that the well-known A + T bias in insect mitochondrial genes tends to increase from the basal to apical orders. Expand

TLDR
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is used to distinguish closely related carabids and spiders, and to match eggs and larvae (or nymphs) with identified adult parents. Expand
Variation in genetic structure among populations of the caddisfly Helicopsyche borealis from three streams in northern California, U.S.A.
SUMMARY 1. Allozyme electrophoresis was used to describe the genetic structure of Helicopsyche borealis caddisflies collected from three sites in each of three streams in northern California,Expand
Identifying spiders through DNA barcodes
TLDR
This study demonstrates that sequence diversity in a standard segment of the mitochondrial gene coding for cytochrome c oxidase I (COI) is highly effective in discriminating spider species and establishes the potential of COI as a rapid and accurate identification tool for biodiversity surveys of spiders.

The use of genetic markers for the diagnosis of sibling species in the genus Isotomurus (Insecta, Collembola)
TLDR
The absence of hybrids demonstrates that the two species, discriminated morphologically by body pigmentation, do not cross and the rate of sequence divergence of the mitochondrial COII gene confirms a significant degree of differentiation. Expand
