The Tipulidae s.l.—craneflies—are one of the largest groups of the Diptera containing over 15,270 valid species and subspecies. The immatures of the majority of species live in aquatic or semiaquatic habitats. Some aquatic species live entirely submerged and lack functional spiracles, others come to the surface to take oxygen by using spiracles positioned at the end of the abdomen. Semiaquatic species occur in a wide range of habitats. The semiterrestrial and terrestrial larvae live in… Expand

Crane flies (Diptera, Tipuloidea) from southern Neotropical salt marshes: survey with DNA barcoding
TLDR
A descriptive checklist that incorporates morphology and DNA barcoding for crane flies of southern Brazilian salt marshes is developed, indicating that the mtDNA COI region is adequate for distinguishing species within the Tipuloidea. Expand
Cranefly (Diptera, Tipuloidea & Ptychopteridae) fauna of Limhamn limestone quarry (Sweden, Malmö) - diversity and faunistics viewed from a NW European perspective
This article elucidates a cranefly assemblage of special interest, a limestone quarry of Limhamn, a man-made habitat in southernmost Sweden (Skane: Malmo). The studied material was collected with twoExpand
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
Neat and clear: 700 species of crane flies (Diptera: Tipulomorpha) link southern South America and Australasia
TLDR
A clear pattern is revealed in which crane fly taxa shared between southern South America, New Zealand and Australia are restricted to that region, and a nested set of distribution patterns could be explained by extinctions in areas where taxa were present previously. Expand
Neat and clear: 700 species of crane flies (Diptera: Tipulomorpha) link southern South America and Australasia
TLDR
A clear pattern is revealed in which crane fly taxa shared between southern South America, New Zealand and Australia are restricted to that region, and a nested set of distribution patterns could indicate historical absences and the existence of a heterogeneous set of ancestral distributional ranges. Expand
Annotated list of Finnish crane flies (Diptera: Tipulidae, Limoniidae, Pediciidae, Cylindrotomidae)
TLDR
A list of Finnish crane fly species is presented (Diptera: Tipuloidea) and two species that were previously reported are deleted from the Finnish list (11 Limoniidae, 11 Tipulidae). Expand
The subgenus Tipula (Pterelachisus) in Finland (Diptera: Tipulidae)—species and biogeographic analysis
TLDR
The highest species richnesses are observed in the southern, south eastern and eastern parts of the country and the lowest number of species are found in south western, western and northernmost Finland, probably caused by the climate and the eastern Palaearctic origin of several species. Expand
Aquatic flies (Diptera) in phytotelmata of Neotropical Zingiberales plants
TLDR
Results of a cluster analysis indicate that communities of aquatic Diptera varied between sampling sites and within and between plants, and phytotelmata should be included in assessments of aquatic diptera. Expand
Declines in diversity of crane flies (Diptera: Tipuloidea) indicate impact from grazing by livestock in the Hövsgöl region of Mongolia
TLDR
To document biodiversity of crane flies along the east shore of Lake Hövsgöl, Mongolia, and to test whether crane fly diversity differs between valleys with different grazing intensity, a parsimonious model based on multiple regression analysis indicates that plant biomass and relative humidity are the strongest significant predicators of variation in crane fly Diversity across the grazing gradient.

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
The western palaearctic species of Nephrotoma Meigen, 1803 (Diptera, Tipulidae). Part 5: Phylogeny and Biogeography
TLDR
An attempt is made to correlate the phylogeny of the cornicina and crocata groups with glacial-interglacial cycles and the distribution patterns of all Palaearctic species are discussed in relation to Pleistocene and Holocene climatic fluctuations. Expand
BIOLOGY OF TIPULIDAE
TLDR
According to Savchenko (119) archaic tipulids probably inhabited sub­ tropical forests, and Rohdendorf (118) states that the modern Tipulidea (Tipulidae and the small families Trichoceridae, Tanyderidae, and Ptychop­ teridae) reach their greatest diversity in the humid tropics. Expand

Neodiptera: New insights into the adult morphology and higher level phylogeny of Diptera (Insecta)
