  • Homologies of male genitalic structures in the Eremoneura (Empidoidea + Cyclorrhapha) are examined and implications for the phylogenetic relationships of the included families are discussed in light of other characters. A revised epandrial hypothesis for the evolution of male genitalia within the Eremoneura is presented, based on comparison of male genitalic features throughout the Brachycera, and a periandrial hypothesis is rejected. Ground plan modifications of the genitalia of Eremoneura… CONTINUE READING
