A provisional larval groundplan of the family Hygrobiidae is provided through descriptions of internal and external fea- tures of three of six extant species, Hygrobia hermanni (Fabricius, 1775), H. wattsi Hendrich 2001 and H. australasiae (Clark, 1862) and phylogenetic interpretations. Hygrobiidae larvae are morphologically differing dramatically from all other known Adephaga by 20 autapomorphies. Structures involved with feeding, i.e., mouthparts, prepharynx and foregut are highly modified as… Expand
Description of the third instar of Hygrobia nigra (Clark, 1862) Coleoptera: Paelobiidae), with a key for the identification of mature larvae of Hygrobia Latreille, 1804 and phylogenetic analysis.
TLDR
The mature larva of the squeak beetle Hygrobia nigra is studied for the first time based on detailed descriptions and illustrations of selected structures, with special emphasis on morphometry and chaetotaxy. Expand
Larval morphology of Paroster Sharp, 1882 (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae: Hydroporinae): reinforcement of the hypothesis of monophyletic origin and discussion of phenotypic accommodation to a hypogaeic environment
TLDR
A cladistic analysis of 41 Hydroporinae species and 63 informative characters supports a monophyletic origin of members of Paroster, which share a labial palpus comprised of three palpomeres and the absence of the primary seta FE7. Expand
Descriptions of larvae of Megadytes (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae: Dytiscinae): The subgenera Trifurcitus and Megadytes s. str., ground plan of chaetotaxy of the genus and phylogenetic analysis
The three larval instars of Megadytes (M.) carcharias Griffini and M. (Trifurcitus) fallax (Aube) are described and illus- trated in detail for the first time, with an emphasis on morphometry andExpand
Larval Morphology of Meruidae (Coleoptera: Adephaga) and Its Phylogenetic Implications
TLDR
Meruidae, or comb-clawed cascade beetles, are a recently discovered monotypic family of Adephaga endemic to Venezuela and are hypothesized to have diverged anterior to Amphizoidae, Aspidytidae, Hygrobiidae, and Dytiscidae. Expand
Larval morphology of the diving beetle Celina and the phylogeny of ancestral hydroporines (Coleoptera : Dytiscidae : Hydroporinae)
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships among ancestral lineages of the Hydroporinae are investigated based on a cladistic analysis of 34 taxa and 127 morphological larval characters and show high support for a monophyletic origin of the hydroporinee, including Methlini, based on eight unique character states. Expand
Morphology and chaetotaxy of Neotropical Haliplus larvae (Coleoptera: Haliplidae)
TLDR
Larvae of 2 Neotropical species of Haliplus Latreille, 1802 and H. subseriatus  Zimmermann, 1921 are described and illustrated including detailed morphometric and chaetotaxic analyses of the cephalic capsule, head appendages, and legs. Expand
Larval description and chaetotaxic analysis of Gyrinus monrosi MOUCHAMPS , 1957 ( Coleoptera : Gyrinidae )
The three larval instars of the Neotropical Gyrinus (Oreogyrinus) monrosi MOUCHAMPS, 1957 (Coleoptera: Gyrinidae) are described and illustrated for the first time including detailed morphometric andExpand
The larval head of Raphidia (Raphidioptera, Insecta) and its phylogenetic significance.
TLDR
Characters of the larval head are not sufficient for a reliable placement of Raphidioptera, and highly unusual, potentially autapomorphic features are the presence of a dorsal ligament of the tentorium and paired gland-like structures below the pharynx. Expand
Morphology and Chaetotaxy of the Instars of Hydrocanthus sharpi Zimmermann, 1928 (Coleoptera: Noteridae)
Abstract The three instars of Hydrocanthus sharpi Zimmermann, 1928 are described and illustrated, including morphometric and chaetotaxic analyses of the cephalic capsule, head appendages, legs, lastExpand
The systematic position of Meruidae (Coleoptera, Adephaga) and the phylogeny of the smaller aquatic adephagan beetle families
A phylogenetic analysis of Adephaga is presented. It is based on 148 morphological characters of adults and larvae and focussed on a placement of the recently described Meruidae, and the genus‐levelExpand

Phylogenetic analysis of Adephaga (Coleoptera) based on characters of the larval head
TLDR
Characters of the head of adephagan larvae were examined and analysed phylogenetically, and improvement of the hypopharyngeal filter apparatus suggests the monophyly of Anisochaeta. Expand
Larval morphology and phylogenetic position of Micromalthus debilis LeConte (Coleoptera: Micromalthidae)
TLDR
External and internal structures of the cerambycoid and triungulin larvae of Micromalthus debilis are described and compared to features found in larvae of other groups of Coleoptera and a cladistic analysis was carried out. Expand
PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF NEARCTIC COLYMBETINAE (COLEOPTERA: ADEPHAGA: DYTISCIDAE) BASED ON CHAETOTAXIC AND POROTAXIC ANALYSIS OF HEAD CAPSULE AND APPENDAGES OF LARVAE
TLDR
A preliminary phylogenetic reconstruction of the relationships of colymbetine genera studied based on 41 larval features suggests that the Nearctic fauna includes two monophyletic lineages. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of Gyrinidae based on characters of the larval head (Coleoptera: Adephaga)
TLDR
Characters of the head of larvae of Gyrinidae were examined and evaluated phylogenetically and the monophyly of the enhydrine genera + Orectochilini is suggested by the extreme elongation of the cardines. Expand
Larval morphology of the Palaearctic genera Deronectes Sharp and Scarodytes Gozis (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae: Hydroporinae), with implications for the phylogeny of the Deronectes-group of genera
TLDR
Larval characters, in contrast to adult characters support the inclusion of Antiporus, Neonectes and Oreodytes in the Deronectes-group of genera. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of Myxophaga (Coleoptera) using larval characters
TLDR
The proposed branching pattern suggests that the early representatives of Myxophaga (excluding Lepiceridae) were living in aquatic conditions with a preference for hygropetric habitats, and the tendency to live on rocks in running water and miniaturization have played an important role in myxophagan evolution.

Larval head structures of Omoglymmius hamatus and their implications for the relationships of Rhysodidae (Coleoptera: Adephaga)
TLDR
The wood-boring, xylophagous-fungivorous habits of Rhysodidae are almost certainly a secondary feature as indicated by the absence of the mandibular mola and other features. Expand
