The stiletto fly family Therevidae is diverse and species rich in Australasia, with numerous undescribed species. Ongoing studies of Ectinorhynchus Macquart, 1850 from the Taenogera genus-group indicate that the genus Evansomyia Mann, 1928 stat. rev. is valid and is raised from synonymy for three species: Evansomyia phyciformis (White, 1915) stat. rev. , Evansomyia scutellus (Mann, 1933) comb. nov. , and Evansomyia venusta (Erichson, 1842) comb. nov. . Two new species of an unusual new therevid… Expand
New stiletto flies from New Caledonia (Therevidae, Agapophytinae).
TLDR
Two new agapophytine genera are described, together comprising nine charismatic new species of stiletto-flies from New Caledonia, which represents a first record of the subfamily from Oceania. Expand
New genera of Australian stiletto flies (Diptera, Therevidae)
TLDR
Two new stiletto fly genera of Agapophytinae (Diptera: Therevidae) are described from Australia and are likely closely related to Taenogerella Winterton & Irwin and Actenomeros Winterton and Irwin. Expand

Revision of the stiletto fly genus Neodialineura Mann (Diptera: Therevidae): an empirical example of cybertaxonomy
TLDR
The endemic Australian genus Neodialineura Mann is revised to include 13 species, and serves as an empirical example for modernising the process of documenting global biodiversity by making taxonomic description and key development more efficient by avoiding redundancy in data handling and using digital media.

Phylogenetic revision of the Taenogera Kröber genus-group (Diptera: Therevidae), with descriptions of two new genera
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of the Taenogera genus-group, consisting of nine genera, are examined using cladistic methods and new genera are described and figured, supporting the removal of Nanexila gracilis (Mann) comb. Expand
Phylogenetic revision of Agapophytus Guérin (Diptera : Therevidae : Agapophytinae)
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of the species of Agapophytus are discussed with three main clades recognised: A. dioctriaeformis clade, A. australasiae clade and A. queenslandi clade. Expand

TLDR
Seven new genera are described by Lambkin & Yeates: Balaana, Kapua, Larrpana, Munjua, Muwarna, Palirika and Wurda, showing evidence of an evolutionary radiation of beeflies in semi-arid Australia. Expand

Supertrees and the Tree of Life: generating a metaphylogeny for a diverse invertebrate family (Insecta:Diptera:Therevidae) using constraint trees and the parsimony ratchet to overcome low taxon overlap
TLDR
Thesupertreepresentedhereisanoverarchingphylogenetichypothesis of the Therevidae is presented, incorporating extensive sampling of major lineages and summarising past phylogenetic work on the family, to produce inclusive metaphylogenies in situations where source trees have poor data overlap and low taxon overlap.

TLDR
The endemic Australian genus Actenomersos Winterton & Irwin, 1999b is reviewed and a new species (Actenomeros budawang sp. n.) is described and figured from New South Wales. Expand
Altitudinal and seasonal variation in the family-level assemblages of flies (Diptera) in an Australian subtropical rainforest: one hundred thousand and counting!
