Phylogeography of the northernmost distributed Anisocentropus caddisflies and their comparative genetic structures based on habitat preferences
The phylogenetic position of Japanese species within the cosmopolitan genus Anisocentropus is elucidated, and the contrasting genetic structures between the sister species distributed in widely overlapping areas were due to differentiation in their respective adapted environmental preferences.
Genealogical Position of Japanese Populations of the Globally Distributed Mayfly Cloeon dipterum and Related Species (Ephemeroptera, Baetidae): A Molecular Phylogeographic Analysis
The present phylogenetic analysis revealed that haplotypes of the Japanese C. dipterum constitute a seventh group together with a haplotype from Korea that forms a sister group with previously known European and North American haplotype groups.
Unexpected population genetic structure in two closely related euphaeid damselflies from the Yaeyama and Taiwan Islands (Odonata: Euphaeidae)
Despite the very small population sizes of Ishigaki and Iriomote Islands coupled with the effects of glacial and interglacial geological events, they have maintained markedly high genetic diversity.
Cryptic survival and an unexpected recovery of the long-tailed mayfly Palingenia longicauda (Olivier, 1791) (Ephemeroptera: Palingeniidae) in Southeastern Europe
The phylogeographic results indicate that the presence of the analyzed populations are not the result of recent founding events from the Pannon region, confirming the survival and expansion of cryptic local lineages.
Distribution patterns and niche segregation of three closely related Japanese ephemerid mayflies: a re-examination of each species’ habitat from “megadata” held in the “National Census on River Environments”
Changes in river environments due to elevation gradients have a great impact on living organisms. In particular, with respect to aquatic insects, it has been recognized that even in closely related
Seasonal modifications of longitudinal distribution patterns within a stream: Interspecific interactions in the niche overlap zones of two Ephemera mayflies
Abstract Niche differentiation between closely related species leads to differentiation of their habitats. Segregation based on slight differences in environmental factors, that is niche
Wide-Scale Gene Flow, Even in Insects that have Lost their Flight Ability: Presence of Dispersion Due to a Unique Parasitic Ecological Strategy of Piggybacking Hosts
A new level of species diversity was revealed among the Meloe beetle species, known for their unique and strange ecological and ethological characteristics.
Community Structure of Aquatic Insects Adapted to Lentic Water Environments, and Fine-Scale Analyses of Local Population Structures and the Genetic Structures of an Endangered Giant Water Bug Appasus japonicus
This is a comprehensive study focused on the relevant environmental factors, diversification of their community structures, their population structures, and their genetic structure at a fine scale of aquatic insects in ponds in the Matsumoto Basin of Japan.
Development of microsatellite markers for a giant water bug, Appasus japonicus, distributed in East Asia
Twenty novel polymorphic microsatellite loci developed for A. japonicus will be useful for investigating the genetic structure of A.Japonicus populations, which can contribute in population genetics studies of this species.
Identifying a “pseudogene” for the mitochondrial DNA COI region of the corixid aquatic insect, Hesperocorixa distanti (Heteroptera, Corixidae)
This paper reports the discovery of a pseudogene in the mitochondrial COI region from aquatic heteropterans and recommends using the “HCOoutout” primer as a downward primer for amplification of theCOI region of aquaticheteropterans, especially corixid water bugs.


Phylogeographic analyses of the Stenopsyche caddisflies (Trichoptera: Stenopsychidae) of the Asian Region
A gradual trend has suggested an evolutionary history in which distributional expansion occurred from southern Asia toward northeastern Asia and was accompanied by corresponding species differentiation among 21 species of the genus Stenopsyche.
Molecular Phylogeography and Population Genetic Structure of O. longilobus and O. taihangensis (Opisthopappus) on the Taihang Mountains
The results support the inference that Quaternary refugial isolation promoted allopatric speciation in Taihang Mountains, which may help to explain the existence of high diversity and endemism of plant species in central/northern China.
Molecular phylogeographic analysis of East Asian cryptoperlan stoneflies (Insecta: Plecoptera, Peltoperlidae)
This genetic structure among cryptoperlans largely reflects the geological history from the middle to upper Miocene Epoch (i.e., Tortonian stage) of the Japanese archipelago and Taiwan Island.
Parallel evolution of an alpine type ecomorph in a scorpionfly: Independent adaptation to high‐altitude environments in multiple mountain locations
The Japanese scorpionfly, Panorpodes paradoxus, was polyphyletic, and had evolved to become the alpine type at least twice independently at separate mountain locations, suggesting that the al Alpine type is an “ecomorph”, having recently adapted to low temperature habitats following mountain uplift within the Japanese Archipelago and subsequent glacial‐interglacial cycles.
Comparative phylogeography of four component species of deciduous broad-leaved forests in Japan based on chloroplast DNA variation
A phylogeographic study of four tree species growing in Japanese deciduous broad-leaved forests based on chloroplast DNA variations found that the forests in eastern Japan separately expanded from each of the refugia along the Sea of Japan-side or along the Pacific Ocean-side, and those in southwestern Japan retreated and moved to high altitudes from Each of the continuous forests.
Complex geographic- and habitat-based niche partitioning of an East Asian habitat generalist mayfly Isonychia japonica (Ephemeroptera:Isonychiidae) with reference to differences in genetic structure
We focused on the genetic structure and evolutionary divergence of a typical habitat generalist mayfly, Isonychia japonica, inhabiting rivers widely distributed across eastern Asia. In the Japanese
Phylogeography of the East Asian polymitarcyid mayfly genus Ephoron (Ephemeroptera: Polymitarcyidae): a comparative analysis of molecular and ecological characteristics
Using the nuclear histone 3 and internal transcribed spacer 1 and mitochondrial 16S rRNA and cytochrome c oxidase subunit I genes, the phylogenetic relationships of these mayflies were investigated and it was suggested that both pre- and post-zygotic isolation are likely to have promoted speciation of these Ephoron species.
Species diversity of insects in Japan: Their origins and diversification processes
Japan is considered a global hot spot of biodiversity. With regard to species diversity, insects are no exception. To date, more than 32,000 insect species have been identified in Japan, while around
