Phylogenetics of a small caddisfly genus (Thremmatidae: Oligophlebodes): comparison among multiple hypotheses from DNA barcode data

The novel topology produced in the Bayesian tree supports further explorations by likelihood-based methods of the preliminary Oligophlebodes dataset that can be used as additional lines of evidence to support morphological work.

Integrative taxonomy supports two new species of Chimarra Stephens, 1829 from Brazil (Trichoptera: Philopotamidae)

Analysis of the sequences of Chimarra odonta suggests that the nominal species may represent a complex of cryptic species with high intraspecific divergences, with at least two of those lineages co-occurring with C. paraodontasp.

Using the combined gene approach and multiple analytical methods to improve the phylogeny and classification of Bombus (Hymenoptera, Apidae) in China

The phylogenetic relationships of the dominant bumble bees on the Tibetan plateau and in northern China as well as their placement and classification within the genus Bombus are explored to provide a molecular basis to accurately classify Bombus in China and to define strategies to conserve biodiversity and promote pollinator populations.

New insights into the genetic diversity of the Balkan bush-crickets of the Poecilimon ornatus group (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae)

Molecular phylogeny supported the monophyly of the P. ornatus group and showed that their ancestor probably originated in the southern Balkans, and the species delimitation analysis showed mostly nine hypothetical species among the group.

Phylogeny of Macronematinae (Trichoptera: Hydropsychidae) based on molecular and morphological analyses

This first molecular phylogenetic study, covering most genera in Macronematinae and including an interpretation of 12 key evolutionary novelties, provides an important basis for resolving long-standing questions regarding phylogenetic relationships and classification of genera and species and helps lay a stronger foundation for inference of testable hypotheses about functional traits for species of this common and widespread subfamily.

The Chimarra of the georgensis and fallax species groups in Madagascar (Trichoptera, Philopotamidae)

The male genitalia of the holotype of Chimarra dybowskina Navás, 1931 are described for the first time and the species distribution on Madagascar is briefly exposed.

The Chimarra lehibemavo species-group, new and endemic to Madagascar (Trichoptera, Philopotamidae)

The Chimarra lehibemavo group is described to include thirteen new species, which are monophyletic with unknown affinities, but a preliminary phylogenetic placement is suggested following genetic analysis of two specimens.

New species and a new genus of Philopotamidae from the Andes of Bolivia and Ecuador (Insecta, Trichoptera)

A new genus and species of Philopotamidae (Philopotaminae), Aymaradellaboliviana, is described from the Bolivian Andes of South America and is distinguished by the loss of 2A vein in the hind wing and, in the male genitalia, the synscleritous tergum and sternum of segment VIII, and the elongate sclerotized dorsal processes of segments VIII.

Catalog of the Neotropical Trichoptera (Caddisflies)

The Neotropical caddisfly (Trichoptera) fauna is cataloged from a review of over 1,000 literature citations through 2015 to include 3,262 currently recognized, valid species-group names in 25 families and 155 extant genera.



Phylogeny of Trichoptera (caddisflies): characterization of signal and noise within multiple datasets.

Trichoptera are holometabolous insects with aquatic larvae that, together with the Lepidoptera, make up the Amphiesmenoptera and are found to be evolving under extremely different rates, with Annulipalpia to be the most basal of the three suborders, with Spicipalpia and IntegripalPia forming a clade.

Contribution to the knowledge of the caddisflies of the Philippines. 2. The species of the Mt. Agtuuganon Range on Mindanao (Insecta: Trichoptera)

The examination of caddisflies from a single locality in Mindanao re­ sulted in the discovery of 66 new species. They belong to the following genera: Rkyacophila: 1 sp., A gapetus: 4 spp., U

Systematics of Otarrha, a new Neotropical subgenus of Chimarra (Trichoptera: Philopotamidae)

Abstract. Subgenus Otarrha is established in genus Chimarra to include eighteen described species formerly placed either in subgenus Chimarra or unplaced to subgenus, and thirteen new species. All

Defining the genus Hydropsyche (Trichoptera:Hydropsychidae) based on DNA and morphological evidence

New molecular evidence from mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) and nuclear large subunit ribosomal ribonucleic acid (28S) markers supporting the monophyly of the genus Hydropsyche is presented.

Associating larvae and adults of Chinese Hydropsychidae caddisflies (Insecta:Trichoptera) using DNA sequences

The study established a procedure for delimiting species boundaries and associating larvae and adults of hydropsychids using DNA sequences and morphological evidence, and ideal sampling strategies for larval–adult association are suggested.

Site specific rates of mitochondrial genomes and the phylogeny of eutheria

The results indicate that selection of an appropriate model that accommodates rate heterogeneity across data partitions and proper treatment of RNA genes can result in a mitochondrial genome-based phylogeny of eutherian mammals that is reasonably congruent with recent phylogenies derived from nuclear genes.

Systematics of Chimarrita, a new subgenus of Chimarra (Trichoptera: Philopotamidae)

The subgenus Chimarrita of the genus Chimarra is erected to include three described species, formerly placed in the subgenus Chimarra, and fifteen new species, all with distributions in the Greater

Preliminary extensions of the “gene tree” methodology to haplotypes of nuclear genes demonstrate that the phylogenetic perspective can also help to illuminate molecular‐genetic processes (such as recombination or gene conversion), as well as contribute to knowledge of the origin, age, and molecular basis of particular adaptations.
