Phylogenetic framework for Dioryctria (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae: Phycitinae) based on combined analysis of mitochondrial DNA and morphology
TLDR
The value of a combined analysis of both mtDNA and morphological characters is demonstrated and a phylogenetic framework for broader and more comprehensive studies of Dioryctria species is established.
Phylogenetics and biogeography of a spectacular Old World radiation of butterflies: the subtribe Mycalesina (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Satyrini)
TLDR
The phylogeny suggests that the group Mycalesina had its origin either in Asia or Africa, and diversified through dispersals between the two regions, during the late Oligocene and early Miocene.
Phylogenetic Utility of Tektin, a Novel Region for Inferring Systematic Relationships Among Lepidoptera
TLDR
It is thought Tektin will provide a useful source of molecular characters for inference of relationships among other butterflies, and perhaps among other insect taxa.
THE PHYLOGENETIC PATTERN OF SPECIATION AND WING PATTERN CHANGE IN NEOTROPICAL ITHOMIA BUTTERFLIES (LEPIDOPTERA: NYMPHALIDAE)
TLDR
Pleistocene refugia are unlikely to have played a major role in Ithomia diversification, and patterns of lineage accumulation through time differed significantly from that expected at random, and show that most of the extant species were present by the beginning of the Pleistocene at the latest.
Mitochondrial DNA provides an insight into the mechanisms driving diversification in the ithomiine butterfly Hyposcada anchiala (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Ithomiinae)
TLDR
This finding suggests that the subspecies of H. anchiala studied here result from at least two stages of differentiation, and is consistent with a single colonisation into a novel altitudinal zone coincident with a wing pattern switch, fol- lowed by subsequent divergence within, rather than across altitudinal zones.
The phylogenetic pattern of speciation and wing pattern change in neotropical Ithomia butterflies (Lepidoptera: nymphalidae).
TLDR
Pleistocene refugia are unlikely to have played a major role in Ithomia diversification, and patterns of lineage accumulation through time differed significantly from that expected at random, and show that most of the extant species were present by the beginning of the Pleistocene at the latest.
Phylogenetic relationships of ithomiine butterflies (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Danainae) as implied by combined morphological and molecular data
TLDR
A revised classification for relationships among the nine tribes and 46 genera comprising the Ithomiini, a diverse clade of Neotropical butterflies is proposed, and Athesitina new subtribe is described.

THE HISTORICAL BIOGEOGRAPHY OF TWO CARIBBEAN BUTTERFLIES (LEPIDOPTERA: HELICONIIDAE) AS INFERRED FROM GENETIC VARIATION AT MULTIPLE LOCI

  • 2002
TLDR
Mitochondrial DNA and allozyme variation was examined in populations of two Neotropical butterflies, Heliconius charithonia and Dryas iulia, suggesting that intraspecific evolution in the West Indies has been somewhat constrained by earth history events, such as changes in sea level.
A molecular phylogeny of the neotropical butterfly genus Anartia (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae).
Phylogenetic relationships between tuna species of the genus Thunnus (Scombridae: Teleostei): Inconsistent implications from morphology, nuclear and mitochondrial genomes
TLDR
The molecular data indicate that albacore has been incorporated into the Pacific population of northern bluefin tuna and has extensively displaced the original mtDNA, which is inconsistent with the phylogenetic relationships between these tuna species inferred from morphology.
Phylogenetic discordance at the species boundary: comparative gene genealogies among rapidly radiating Heliconius butterflies.
TLDR
The finding of discordant genealogies between genes is consistent with models of adaptive speciation with ongoing gene flow and highlights the need for multiple locus comparisons to resolve phylogeny among closely related species.
Phylogenetic Systematics of the Scomberomorus regalis (Teleostei: Scombridae) Species Group: Molecules, Morphology and Biogeography of Spanish Mackerels
TLDR
The phylogenetic topology indicates a pre-isthmian divergence for the western Atlantic S. maculatus, followed by divergence of the common ancestors of theWestern Atlantic and eastern Pacific species resulting from the rise of the Isthmus of Panama and closure of associated seaways.
Patterns of mitochondrial versus nuclear DNA sequence divergence among nymphalid butterflies: the utility of wingless as a source of characters for phylogenetic inference
TLDR
It is suggested that wg will be a useful source of characters for phylogenetic studies of butterflies, and perhaps other insect taxa, with divergence times up to 60 million years ago.
A highly conserved nuclear gene for low-level phylogenetics: elongation factor-1 alpha recovers morphology-based tree for heliothine moths.
TLDR
This postulate that the single most parsimonious gene tree and the neighbor-joining tree for all nucleotides show almost complete concordance with the morphological tree for the EF-1 alpha gene in the noctuid moth subfamily Heliothinae is tested.
Ithomiinae (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae): Summary of Known Larval Food Plants
TLDR
The known interactions between the larvae of ithomiine butterflies and their host plants are described in a table, illustrated, and briefly discussed, and it is believed that identifications of both insect and plant taxa are accurate to the generic level in all cases.
MITOCHONDRIAL DNA VARIATION WITHIN AND BETWEEN SPECIES OF THE PAPILIO MACHAON GROUP OF SWALLOWTAIL BUTTERFLIES
TLDR
It is suggested that P. joanae and P. brevicauda are of hybrid origin, and have mtDNA that is closely related to that of P. machaon.
