Morphology versus DNA – what will bring clarity to therelationships of phylogenetically unclear genera ofAnthomyzidae (Diptera)?
TLDR
The new molecular evidence provides new insight into the phylogeny of Anthomyzidae, but like morphology, fails to resolve some key nodes, suggesting that new studies using both sources of information will be necessary to fully reconstruct the history of the family.
Phylogeny of the Archiborborinae (Diptera: Sphaeroceridae) Based on Combined Morphological and Molecular Analysis
TLDR
The first phylogenetic hypothesis for the Archiborborinae is presented, based on morphological, molecular, and combined datasets, and it is shown that Aptery and brachyptery have evolved multiple times in the subfamily.
New amber fossil Anthomyzidae (Diptera): an unexpected Eocene diversity
TLDR
Habitat and host–plant association and diversity of Anthomyzidae in the Eocene Baltic amber forest are discussed and it is concluded that they probably had a biology similar to extant species but obviously a higher species diversity than known in the contemporary European fauna.
A revision of the genus Planinasus Cresson (Diptera, Periscelididae)
TLDR
The genus Planinasus Cresson is revised and includes 18 extant and one fossil species and 15 new species as follows, and external characters of the male terminalia and the internal female reproductive organs are described.
The impact of the Manual of Nearctic Diptera on phylogenetic dipterology
Abstract Our knowledge of the phylogenetic relationships of Diptera advanced through the 20th century at an unprecedented rate; the two crowning achievements of the century were Hennig's magnum opus
World Catalog and Conspectus on the Family Periscelididae (Diptera: Schizophora)
TLDR
This catalog and conspectus are presented here not only to summarize information about the Periscelididae but also to encourage and facilitate research on all aspects of the biology of these flies.
The complete mitochondrial genome of the gall-forming fly, Fergusonina taylori Nelson and Yeates (Diptera: Fergusoninidae)
TLDR
The mitochondrial genome of Fergusonina presented here may prove valuable for resolving the sister group to the Fergusoninidae, and expands the available mtDNA data sources for acalyptrates overall.
Stenomicra (Diptera: Opomyzoidea) in Argentina, with information on the biology of the genus
„ ABSTRACT. This is the first literature record of the genus Stenomicra Coquillett (Diptera: Periscelididae) from South America (Neotropical Region). New information on the biological cycle of
Periscelis stuckenbergi sp. n., the First Record of the Genus from the Afrotropical Region (Diptera: Periscelididae: Periscelidinae)
TLDR
A new species of the genus Periscelis Loew, the first from the Afrotropical Region, is described and brief diagnoses of the family, subfamily, genus, subgenus and species are provided to facilitate identification of members of this uncommon family.
Distinguishing Agromyzidae (Diptera) Leaf Mines in the Fossil Record: New Taxa from the Paleogene of North America and Germany and their Evolutionary Implications
TLDR
Fossilized leaf mines and other traces of phytophagous insects provide a unique window into ecological and evolutionary associations of the past, suggesting a complex and dynamic history of early host-plant associations and, for the early Paleocene example, an evolutionary, possibly opportunistic colonization in the midst of the ecological chaos following the end-Cretaceous event in North America.

Monophyly and Relationships of the Tabanomorpha (Diptera: Brachycera) Based on 28S Ribosomal Gene Sequences
TLDR
The results contradict several published hypotheses that associate Vermileonidae with asiloid or eremoneuran taxa remote from the Tabanomorpha, and corroborate several recent phylogenetic hypotheses based on comparative morphology.
Morphology versus molecules: the phylogenetic relationships of Sepsidae (Diptera: Cyclorrhapha) based on morphology and DNA sequence data from ten genes
TLDR
PBS analyses imply that indel coding has a stronger effect on the relative performance of individual gene partitions than the exclusion of alignment‐ambiguous sequences or the location of a gene on the mitochondrial or nuclear genome, but these analyses also reveal unexpectedly strong fluctuations in PBS values, highlighting the need for a comparative study across multiple data sets that investigates the influence of conflict and indel treatment on PBS values.
Gobryidae, a new family of acalyptrate flies (Diptera: Diopsoidea), and a discussion of relationships of the diopsoid families.
TLDR
The morphology of Gobrya is largely undescribed, and the aim of this paper is to make known aspects of the adult morphology of this genus, together with that of other taxa that have been referred to the superfamily Diopsoidea or Nothyboidea, in order to throw some light on its phylogenetic relationships.
Phylogenetic relationships among Muscoidea (Diptera: Calyptratae) based on mitochondrial DNA sequences
TLDR
The molecular phylogeny obtained here matches the classical morphological taxonomy reasonably well and it is impossible to clearly separate the Muscoidea and Calliphoridae, preventing a firm conclusion on the phylogenetic relationships among Muscoidaa families.
Molecular phylogeny of Calyptratae (Diptera: Brachycera): the evolution of 18S and 16S ribosomal rDNAs in higher dipterans and their use in phylogenetic inference
TLDR
The comparison of secondary structures of two variable regions indicates that Sarcophagidae are related to Calliphoridae rather than to Tachinidae, and monophyly of Calyptratae is well supported.
