A traditionally controversial taxon, the Tipulomorpha has been frequently discussed with respect to both its familial composition and relationships with other Nematocera. The interpretation of internal relationships within the Tipuloidea, which include the Tipulidae sensu stricto, Cylindrotomidae, Pediciidae and Limoniidae, is also problematic. We sequenced the first complete mitochondrial (mt) genome of Symplecta hybrida (Meigen, 1804), which belongs to the subfamily Chioneinae of family… Expand
Mesozoic fossils and the phylogeny of Tipulomorpha (Insecta: Diptera)
TLDR
Male terminalia of Triassic Tipulomorpha are described for the first time: a terminal gonostylus divided into a fleshy setose clasper and a lobe in Archilimonia grauvogeliana sp. Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of the enigmatic ghost lineage Cylindrotomidae (Diptera, Nematocera)
TLDR
It is suggested that the crown group of the Cylindrotomidae began to diversify during the Cenozoic, unlike their sister group Tipulidae. Expand

TLDR
The first complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the subgenus Tipula (Yamatotipula) is reported, which is a circular molecule of 15,668 bp with an AT content of 77.2%. Expand
The mitochondrial genome of Nephrotoma Tenuipes (Diptera Tipulidae)
TLDR
The mitogenome of N. tenuipes was sequenced and suggested that the phylogenetic relationship within Tipuloidea is Pediciidae-Limoniidae-Tipulidae-Cylindrotomidae, withBayesian inference analysis strongly supported the monophyly of Tipulidea. Expand

TLDR
The monophyly of Culicomorpha is well supported, while Chironomoidea is indicated as a paraphyletic group and the well supported monophyletic Simuliidae is the sister group to Culicidae. Expand
Middle Jurassic origin in India: a new look at evolution of Vermileonidae and time-scaled relationships of lower brachyceran flies

TLDR
It is proposed that the Vermileonidae originated in India during the Middle Jurassic, spreading to Africa via land bridges during the Late Jurassic, to the Palaearctic after the collision of India with Laurasia in the Late Oligocene, and to the Nearctic in the Early Miocene, via either North Atlantic or Beringian land bridges.

The mitochondrial genome of Chinese endemic species Pseudolimnophila (Pseudolimnophila) brunneinota (Diptera: Limoniidae)
TLDR
Bayesian inference analysis strongly supported the monophyly of Chioneinae + Limnophilinae and suggested that the phylogenetic relationship within Tipuloidea is Pediciidae + (Limoniidae)+ Limoniinae + (Tipulidae - Cylindrotomidae). Expand
Characterization of the complete mitochondrial genome of the snow crane-fly Chionea crassipes gracilistyla (Diptera, Tipuloidea, Limoniidae) with phylogenetic analysis
TLDR
The first complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the genus Chionea is reported, which is a circular molecule of 15,775 bp with an AT content of 76.9% and contains 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 r RNA genes, and a long non- coding region. Expand
Moss mimesis par excellence: integrating previous and new data on the life history and larval ecomorphology of long-bodied craneflies (Diptera: Cylindrotomidae: Cylindrotominae)
TLDR
A comprehensive overview of the biology and morphology of cylindrotomids, particularly their larval stages, is laid out, providing original data on nine species, and traditional functional explanations for these lobes, particularly as devices for respiration, locomotion and attachment are challenged.

Phylogeny of the Limnophilinae (Limoniidae) and early evolution of the Tipulomorpha (Diptera)
TLDR
This study presents the most comprehensive cladistic analysis of the group ever made, with emphasis on the genera and subgenera of the subfamily Limnophilinae (Limoniidae), assumed to include some of the earliest lineages of Tipulomorpha sensu stricto and therefore important for the understanding of the early patterns in the evolution of the crane flies. Expand
Phylogeny of the nematocerous families of Diptera (Insecta)
TLDR
It is suggested that the Ptychopteromorpha–Culicomorha clade is the sister-group of all other extant Diptera and the Axymyiidae are part of a monophyletic Bibionmorpha. Expand
Phylogenetic synthesis of morphological and molecular data reveals new insights into the higher‐level classification of Tipuloidea (Diptera)
TLDR
A revised phylogenetic classification is proposed for the crane flies based on a synthesis of evidence from multiple genes and morphology, not consistent with the existing subfamilial classification of the ‘Limoniidae’, which is paraphyletic with respect to a well‐supported Tipulinae + Cylindrotominae clade. Expand
The First Mitochondrial Genome for the Fishfly Subfamily Chauliodinae and Implications for the Higher Phylogeny of Megaloptera
TLDR
Both maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference analyses highly support the monophyly of Megaloptera, which was recovered as the sister of Neuroptera in a phylogenomic analysis carried out based on the mt genomic sequences of 13 mt protein-coding genes and two rRNA genes of nine Neuropterida species. Expand
Neodiptera: New insights into the adult morphology and higher level phylogeny of Diptera (Insecta)
TLDR
The monophyly of Neodiptera is firmly supported by four skeleto-muscular modifications of the pronoto-cervical region and the bibionomorph Nematocera are shown to be paraphyletic in terms of Brachycera. Expand
Phylogeny and systematics of Diptera: Two decades of progress and prospects
TLDR
The Diptera, or true flies, are the most ecologically diverse order of insects, spanning ecological roles from detritivory to vertebrate blood feeding and leaf mining, and major recent phylogenetic analyses are summarized in a supertree for the Diptera. Expand
Evolution and phylogeny of the Diptera: a molecular phylogenetic analysis using 28S rDNA sequences.
TLDR
The results support the view that the mouthparts of extant dipteran larvae evolved from a derived ground state characterized by subdivided and obliquely moving mandibles. Expand
A preliminary mitochondrial genome phylogeny of Orthoptera (Insecta) and approaches to maximizing phylogenetic signal found within mitochondrial genome data.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the best phylogenetic inferences are made when all available nucleotide data from themtgenome are analyzed simultaneously, and that the mtgenome data can resolve over a wide time scale from the Permian to the Tertiary. Expand
Phylogenetics and temporal diversification of the earliest true flies (Insecta: Diptera) based on multiple nuclear genes
TLDR
Relationships among families of the lower Diptera (formerly suborder ‘Nematocera’) are resolved using sequence data from four nuclear markers, including both ribosomal (28S rDNA) and protein‐coding (CAD, TPI and PGD) genes, and the results support both novel and traditional arrangements. Expand

TLDR
Phylogenetic trees based on the mt genome data from Cyclorrhapha were inferred by Maximum-likelihood and Bayesian methods, strongly supported a close relationship between Sepsidae and the Tephritoidea. Expand
