SummaryThis investigation of the female genital organs of members of the Gyrinidae, Haliplidae, Noteridae, Dytiscidae and Hygrobiidae serves as a contribution towards the knowledge of the phylogenetics of the Hydradephaga. A comparison is presented of the skeleton, the musculature of the genital segments VIII and IX as well as of the arrangement of the inner genital organs.1.The female abdomen is bordered distally by the tergite VIII and the sternite VII. Ventral parts of the VIIIth segment… Expand
On the systematic position of the family Gyrinidae (Coleoptera: Adephaga)
TLDR
It is postulate that the metacoxal fusion occurred independently in gyrmids and the common ancestor of Trachypachidae, Noteridae, Amphizoidae, Hygrobiidae and Dytiscidae, and is suggested that Gyrinidae are the sister-group of the remaining Adephaga, and are not closely related to the remaining aquaticAdephaga. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships, larval morphology, and chaetotaxy of the subfamily Coptotominae (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae)
TLDR
A cladistic analysis based on 125 larval characters sampled among representatives of other dytiscid subfamilies supports a sister-group relationship between Coptotominae and Laccophilinae based on the shared absence of setae LA10 and LA12 on the second labial palpomere and of pore ABc on the abdominal segment VIII. Expand
Larval morphology of three species of Hygrobiidae (Coleoptera: Adephaga: Dytiscoidea) with phylogenetic considerations
TLDR
A provisional larval groundplan of the family Hygrobiidae is provided through descriptions of internal and external fea- tures of three of six extant species, Hygrobia hermanni, H. wattsi Hendrich 2001 and H. australasiae and phylogenetic interpretations. Expand
Hydaticus tuyuensis Trémouilles (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae): Larval Morphology and Phylogenetic Relationships within Dytiscinae
TLDR
A cladistic analysis of 57 larval characters suggests that the genus Hydaticus shares a common origin with the clade composed of the genera Eretes Laporte and Thermonectus Dejean, based on the following synapomorphies. Expand
On the thoracic anatomy of the Madagascan Heterogyrus milloti and the phylogeny of Gyrinidae (Coleoptera)
TLDR
Features of adults, larvae and eggs indicate that Gyrinidae are the sister group to the remaining adephagan families, as suggested in some earlier morphology‐based studies and recent analyses of large molecular datasets. Expand
Larval Morphology and Phylogenetic Relationships of Bunites distigma (Brullé) (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae: Colymbetinae: Colymbetini)
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis based on 41 first-instar larval characters, including members of six genera of Colymbetini, supports the hypothesis of a derived condition of Bunites within this tribe. Expand
Larval Morphology of Agabetes Crotch (Coleoptera: Adephaga: Dytiscidae): The Hypothesis of Sister-Group Relationship with the Subfamily Laccophilinae Revisited
TLDR
Boostrap values indicate strong support for the monophyly of the clade containing the genus Agabetes Crotch and members of the subfamily Laccophilinae, and a parsimony analysis based on the 43 informative larval characteristics was conducted. Expand
The systematic position of Meruidae (Coleoptera, Adephaga) and the phylogeny of the smaller aquatic adephagan beetle families
A phylogenetic analysis of Adephaga is presented. It is based on 148 morphological characters of adults and larvae and focussed on a placement of the recently described Meruidae, and the genus‐levelExpand
Re-descriptions of larvae of Hoperius and Meladema and phylogenetic implications for the tribe Colymbetini (Coleoptera Dytiscidae)
TLDR
Characters from larval morphology are analyzed to in- fer the phylogenetic relationships of the genera Meladema Laporte and Hoperius Fall with other genera of the tribe Colymbetini (Colymbetinae). Expand
The systematic position of Aspidytidae, the diversification of Dytiscoidea (Coleoptera, Adephaga) and the phylogenetic signal of third codon positions
TLDR
There was a significant increase in the diversification rate at the base of the richest families (Noteridae and Dytiscidae), which could be associated with the development of simultaneous stroke and higher swimming performance, although data on the swimming behaviour of some basal groups of Noteridae are incomplete.

Über den ovipositor der neuropteroidea und coleoptera und seine phylogenetische bedeutung (Insecta, Holometabola)
Summary1.In the Megaloptera the ovipositor consists of two genital labia fused medially and enclosing the groove through which the eggs pass. They are formed by the fusion of the gonocoxites and theExpand

The abdomen of the adult of the prairie grain wireworm, Ctenicera aeripennis destructor (Brown), consists of 10 segments, the posterior 3 of which are modified for reproduction in both sexes.Expand
Evolutionary Morphology of External Insect Genitalia. 1. Origin and Relationships to Other Appendages
TLDR
The notum formed through fusion of the dorsal (euventral) rami of gonapophyses IX is a landmark in both sexes of nearly all insects. Expand
Further Problems in the Interpretation and Homology of the Insect Ovipositor
TLDR
It is shown, by aid of sections through the insect embryo and larval stages, that the primary embryonic segmental appendages on the abdomen, do not differentiate; there is no loss of tissue and it cannot be proven that such appendages have been lost in insect phylogeny. Expand
Coxal Cavities and the Classification of the Adephaga (Coleoptera)
TLDR
Because of extensive parallel and convergent evolution, no classification can be based on the variations of the coxal cavities of a single thoracic segment, as has been attempted in the past; but when used in combination with other characters, the coxa cavities do offer evidence about phylogeny.

A revision of the Australian Gyrinidae
TLDR
This material, augmented by supplementary series from other collections, allowed me to undertake a thorough revision of the Australian representatives of the Gyrinidae, which was again delayed, as war arose, and could be finished only now despite many difficulties. Expand
Reinterpretation of some Basal Structures in the Insect Ovipositor
TLDR
The ovipositor on the eighth and ninth segments is derived from the limb bases in Machilidae, and the genitalia of the higher insect orders are based on this condition. Expand
The Functional Morphology and Interpretation of the Insect Ovipositor
TLDR
It is shown that in insects other than the Machilidae, the female genitalia has a common plan, this plan differing from that usually taken as the basic type in the tepismidae. Expand
