Abstract Descriptions of the larvae of Lancetes angusticollis (Curtis), L. lanceolatus (Clark), L. subseriatus Zimmermann, L. flavoscutatus Enderlein, L. delkeskampi Ríha, and L. nigriceps (Erichson) are provided. Characters from larval morphology are analyzed to infer the phylogenetic relationships of the genus Lancetes Sharp with other genera of Dytiscidae. A parsimony analysis based on 51 informative larval characteristics was conducted with the program NONA. The most parsimonious tree… Expand
Phylogenetic relationships and larval morphology of the recently described diving beetle genus Laccomimus (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae: Laccophilinae)
TLDR
The larvae of the diving beetle genus Laccomimus and Africophilus Guignot, 1948 are studied for the first time, based on detailed descriptions and illustrations of all instars, and plesiomorphic characters indicate a basal position of both genera within the Laccophilini. 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
Descriptions of the preimaginal stages of Lancetes marginatus (Steinheil) and L. biremis Říha (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae), and comparative notes with other Lancetes larvae
TLDR
All the preimaginal stages of Lancetes marginatus (Steinheil) and third instar larva of L. biremis Říha are described and figured for the first time and are the only larval synapomorphy that defines the genus Lancetes Sharp. 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
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
Larval morphology of Rhantus Dejean, 1833 (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae: Colymbetinae): descriptions of 22 species and phylogenetic considerations
TLDR
It is suggested that the Neotropical species R. monteithi Balke, Wewalka, Alarie & Ribera, 2007 occur as more closely related phylogenetically to other genera of the tribe Colymbetini than to the Rhantus species studied. Expand
Descriptions of larvae of Megadytes (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae: Dytiscinae): The hypothesis of monophyletic origin revisited
TLDR
In a cladistic analysis of third-instar larval characters, Megadytes is resolved as non-monophyletic; the species of Cybistrini studied, except those included in the subgenus Trifurcitus Brinck, 1945, share three synapomorphies. 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
Phylogeny and classification of diving beetles in the tribe Cybistrini (Coleoptera, Dytiscidae, Dytiscinae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships among members of the diving beetle tribe Cybistrini were inferred from analysis of 47 adult and larval morphological characters and sequences from portions of the genes cytochrome oxidase I and II, histone III (H3) and wingless. Expand
Larval morphology of Thermonectus succinctus (Aubé 1838) (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae: Dytiscinae), with biological notes and chaetotaxic analysis
Abstract The three larval instars of Thermonectus succinctus (Aubé 1838) are described and illustrated for the first time, emphasizing the morphometry and chaetotaxy. Biological notes are included.Expand

Larval morphology of four genera of Laccophilinae (Coleoptera: Adephaga: Dytiscidae) with an analysis of their phylogenetic relationships.
TLDR
The genus Africophilus is postulated to represent the sister-group of a clade comprised of Laccophilus + (Neptosternus + Australphilus) which is supported by, (i) primary seta CO7 articulated proximally on all legs, (ii) presence of natatory setae, (iii) metatibia + metatarsus very elongated, and (iv) elongated urogomphi.

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

Primary setae and pores on the legs, the last abdominal segment, and the urogomphi of larvae of Nearctic Colymbetinae (Coleoptera: Adephaga: Dytiscidae) with an analysis of their phylogenetic relationships
TLDR
The monophyletic origin of the subfamily Colymbetinae is confirmed and the subgenus Rhantus (Nartus) is postulated to be the sister-group of Neoscutopterus based on the shared presence of additional setae on the dorsal margin of the femur. Expand
The life history of the diving beetle, Lancetes angusticollis (Curtis) (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae), on sub-Antarctic South Georgia
TLDR
Results from two populations of the world's most southerly diving beetle studied on sub-Antarctic South Georgia suggest that L. angusticollis has a complex biennial life-cycle, with overwintering possible in three life stages [aquatic larvae, terrestrial pupae and aquatic adults]. Expand
The ecology of Lancetes claussi (Müller) (Coleoptera, Dytiscidae), the Subantarctic water beetle of South Georgia
TLDR
The development of Lancetes claussi (Müller) is very strongly dependant upon temperature and the proportion of dry weight in the fresh weight is clearly age dependant and ranges from about 9 to 28%. Expand
Phylogenetic frameworks: towards a firmer foundation for the comparative approach
TLDR
It is concluded that taxonomic congruence is preferable to character Congruence for estimating accuracy of phylogenetic hypotheses, and the combinable components approach, when preceded by application of rigorous statistical manipulations, is most appropriate. Expand
