Contrasting phylogeographic patterns of intertidal mites (Acari, Oribatida) along the South African shoreline
A morphometric and molecular genetic study of two of the widely distributed South African intertidal oribatid mite species revealed clearly contrasting patterns and demonstrated morphological homogeneity among populations of Fortuynia and thus confirms strong connectivity.
Juvenile morphology of seven intertidal mite species (Acari, Oribatida, Ameronothroidea) from the East Asian region
The conservative morphology of immature stages could be confirmed in every studied taxon and its importance for phylogenetic considerations is emphasized.


Phylogeographic patterns of intertidal arthropods (Acari, Oribatida) from southern Japanese islands reflect paleoclimatic events
Investigation of the phylogeography of three different intertidal mite species from the Ryukyu islands and southern mainland by means of morphometry and molecular genetics indicates that tiny wingless mites apparently show better dispersal abilities than partially volant terrestrial organism groups.
Systematics, genetics, and biogeography of intertidal mites (Acari, Oribatida) from the Andaman Sea and Strait of Malacca
Abstract This study demonstrates for the first time the presence of marine‐associated mites in the Andaman Sea and Strait of Malacca and reveals a relatively high diversity of these taxa with six
The intertidal genus Indopacifica (Acari, Oribatida, Selenoribatidae): new species, juvenile morphology and distribution.
Two new intertidal oribatid mite species from the Indo-pacific region are described and a morphometric comparison of these two species and Indopacifica pantai from Thailand and Malaysia showed a clear distinction between them.
Morphological diversification among island populations of intertidal mites (Acari, Oribatida, Fortuyniidae) from the Galápagos archipelago
It is suggested that transport between islands has happened mainly by drifting on ocean currents, i.e. populations from islands located closer to each other showed fewer differences than populations from distant islands.
New littoral mite species (Acari, Oribatida, Fortuyniidae) from the Galápagos archipelago, with ecological and zoogeographical considerations.
Two species of Fortuyniidae, found on the Galápagos Islands (Ecuador) are described and illustrated based on the adult and juvenile instars, with morphologically similar but differs from that species and all other known congeners by a prominent cuticular ridge on epimeron III.
PartitionFinder 2: New Methods for Selecting Partitioned Models of Evolution for Molecular and Morphological Phylogenetic Analyses.
PartitionFinder 2 is a program for automatically selecting best-fit partitioning schemes and models of evolution for phylogenetic analyses that includes the ability to analyze morphological datasets, new methods to analyze genome-scale datasets, and new output formats to facilitate interoperability with downstream software.
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
The marine-associated lifestyle of ameronothroid mites (Acari, Oribatida) and its evolutionary origin: a review
Two contrasting theories explaining the evolutionary invasion of marine associated habitats by ameronothroid mites are explained, one favoring a monophyletic origin and a single land-to-sea transition event and another preferring an independent terrestrial ancestry and accordingly multiple invasions of the marine littoral environment.
MEGA7: Molecular Evolutionary Genetics Analysis Version 7.0 for Bigger Datasets.
The latest version of the Molecular Evolutionary Genetics Analysis (Mega) software, which contains many sophisticated methods and tools for phylogenomics and phylomedicine, has been optimized for use on 64-bit computing systems for analyzing larger datasets.
Pseudoscorpion diversity and distribution in the West Indies: sequence data confirm single island endemism for some clades, but not others
An assessment of pseudoscorpion diversity and distribution with a focus on the superfamily Chthonioidea and the family Olpiidae reveals a diversity that is far richer than is documented in the literature.
