The genus Drosophila has played an essential role in many biological studies during the last 100 years but much controversy and many incompletely addressed issues still remain to be elucidated regarding the phylogeny of this genus. Because information on the Neotropical species contained in the subgenus Drosophila is particularly incomplete, with this taxonomic group being underrepresented in many studies, we designed a study to answer some evolutionary questions related to these species. We… Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the Drosophila virilis section (Diptera: Drosophilidae) based on mitochondrial and nuclear sequences.
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial ND2 gene and fragment of COI gene in combination with a nuclear gene, Adh coding region, were used to derive the most extensive molecular phylogeny to date for the Drosophila virilis section, suggesting that at least five independent migrations occurred from the Old World to the New World. Expand
Phylogeography of the Subgenus Drosophila (Diptera: Drosophilidae): Evolutionary History of Faunal Divergence between the Old and the New Worlds
TLDR
The results substantially support Throckmorton’s hypothesis of ancestral migrations via the Bering Land Bridge mainly from the Old to the New World, and subsequent vicariant divergence of descendants between the two Worlds occurred in parallel among different lineages of the subgenus Drosophila. Expand
Phylogeny of the Drosophila mesophragmatica Group (Diptera, Drosophilidae): An Example of Andean Evolution
TLDR
The best supported scenario suggests that D. viracochi is an early offshoot in the mesophragmatica group, with this and other early branchings occuring in the Pliocene/Pleistocene Epochs, possibly associated with Andean glacial refuges. Expand
A supermatrix-based molecular phylogeny of the family Drosophilidae.
TLDR
It is argued that the results support a taxonomic revision of the genus Drosophila, which is known to be paraphyletic with respect to several other genera, but considerable uncertainty remains about other aspects of the phylogeny. Expand
A phylogeny of Drosophilidae using the Amyrel gene: questioning the Drosophila melanogaster species group boundaries
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of 164 species of the family Drosophilidae are discussed, using the Amyrel gene, a member of the a-amylase multigene family, to raise the species subgroups ananassae and montium to the rank of species group and restrict the melanogaster species group to the melanogsaster subgroup plus the Oriental subgroups. Expand
Characterization of the complete mitochondrial genome of flower-breeding Drosophila incompta (Diptera, Drosophilidae)
TLDR
The results suggest that this genome is syntenic with the other published mtDNA of Drosophila, and the high degree of polymorphism found throughout the D. incompta mitogenome, revealing pronounced intrapopulational variation. Expand
Phylogeny of the Drosophila immigrans Species Group (Diptera: Drosophilidae) Based on Adh and Gpdh Sequences
TLDR
The immigrans group is polyphyletic, and the unexpected result was obtained that D. annulipes was included in a clade comprising Scaptomyza and Hawaiian Drosophila, together with D. maculinotata of the funebris group, although the phylogenetic relationships within this clade remain uncertain. Expand
Radiation of the ,,Drosophila“ subgenus (Drosophilidae, Diptera) in the Neotropics
TLDR
This study raises the possibility that the Zaprionus/Liodrosophila species encompass a fourth radiation within the subgenus,,DrosophILA“ phylogeny and provides temporal estimates for each of the postulated divergence events. Expand
A supertree analysis and literature review of the genus Drosophila and closely related genera (Diptera, Drosophilidae)
TLDR
More than 120 recent studies are reviewed and used in a supertree analysis to construct a new phylogenetic hypothesis for the genus Drosophila and related genera, warranting a revision of the genus. Expand
Historical patterns of niche dynamics in Neotropical species of the Drosophila subgenus (Drosophilidae, Diptera)
TLDR
Test the role of NC patterns across evolution of American drosophilids belonging to the tripunctata and virilis-repleta lineages of the Drosophila subgenus through measures of geographical, abiotic and biotic niche overlap and evaluations regarding the presence of phylogenetic signal or niche identity.

Phylogeny of the subgenus sophophora (Diptera: drosophilidae) based on combined analysis of nuclear and mitochondrial sequences.
TLDR
The results suggest that the melanogaster and obscura species groups are each monophyletic and form a closely related clade and the Neotropical clade, containing the saltans and willistoni species groups, is also recovered. Expand
Phylogeny of Drosophila and related genera: conflict between molecular and anatomical analyses.
TLDR
The combined data for three genes (Adh, Sod, and Gpdh) statistically resolves outstanding issues and defines the genus Drosophila inclusively so as to include Scaptomyza and Zaprionus (considered distinct genera in the taxonomy of Wheeler, 1981), and is monophyletic. Expand
Molecular phylogeny and divergence times of drosophilid species.
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships and divergence times of 39 drosophilid species were studied by using the coding region of the Adh gene to show that Scaptomyza experienced a rapid morphological evolution and many of the D. repleta group species studied here have two functional Adh genes, and these duplicated genes can be explained by two duplication events. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Drosophila based on ribosomal RNA sequences
TLDR
Four main lineages or clades which do not correspond to the taxonomical hierarchy of Drosophilidae are revealed and additional sequencing will be necessary to determine their precise relationships. Expand
Phylogeny of Drosophila and related genera inferred from the nucleotide sequence of the Cu,Zn Sod gene
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the Sod sequences indicates that Scaptodrosophila and Chymomyza branched off the main lineage before the major Drosophilids radiations, and the presence of a second intron in Chylomyza and ScaptadrosophILA confirms the early divergence of these two taxa. Expand

The phylogenetic relationships of several taxa from representative genera, subgenera, groups, and subgroups in the Drosophilidae were examined using sequences from a 905-bp mtDNA fragment.Expand
Phylogenetic relationships in Drosophila: a conflict between molecular and morphological data.
TLDR
Grimaldi's recent cladistic classification of genera in the family Drosophilidae, based on adult morphological characters, is evaluated for those taxa for which alcohol dehydrogenase DNA sequences are also available to give strong support for the broad relationships hypothesized by Throckmorton.

Phylogeny of Drosophilinae (Diptera: Drosophilidae), with comments on combined analysis and character support.
TLDR
The combined analysis cladogram phylogeny reflects the catch-all designation that the name Drosophila has become, in that the cladogram does not support the monophyly of either the genus or subgenus Drosphila. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of the repleta species group of the genus Drosophila using multiple sources of characters.
TLDR
The phylogenetic hypothesis obtained supports many of the traditionally accepted clades within the mulleri subgroup, but the monophyly of taxonomic groups outside of this subgroup appears not to be supported. Expand
Molecular phylogeny and genome evolution in the Drosophila virilis species group: duplications of the alcohol dehydrogenase gene.
TLDR
The developmental profile of Adh transcription suggests a distal/proximal promoter switch analogous to that in D. melanogaster, and the Adh genes in all species of the D. virilis group have among the lowest codon bias of any AdH genes so far reported in the genus Drosophila. Expand
