New species of Nanexila Winterton & Irwin and Taenogera Kröber from Australia (Diptera: Therevidae)

  title={New species of Nanexila Winterton \& Irwin and Taenogera Kr{\"o}ber from Australia (Diptera: Therevidae)},
  author={Shaun L. Winterton},
Two new species are described in each of the closely related genera Nanexila Winterton & Irwin and Taenogera Krober. Nanexila atricauda sp. nov. and Nanexila jimrodmani sp. nov. are described. The phylogenetic placement and diagnostic characteristics of these new species and other species recently transferred to Nanexila are discussed. Taenogera luteola sp. nov. and Taenogera brunnea sp. nov. are distinctive species described from female specimens collected in Queensland. Taenogera is diagnosed…

New genera of Australian stiletto flies (Diptera, Therevidae)

Two new stiletto fly genera of Agapophytinae (Diptera: Therevidae) are described from Australia and are likely closely related to Taenogerella Winterton & Irwin and Actenomeros Winterton and Irwin.

Revision of the stiletto fly genus Neodialineura Mann (Diptera: Therevidae): an empirical example of cybertaxonomy

The endemic Australian genus Neodialineura Mann is revised to include 13 species, and serves as an empirical example for modernising the process of documenting global biodiversity by making taxonomic description and key development more efficient by avoiding redundancy in data handling and using digital media.

Supertrees and the Tree of Life: generating a metaphylogeny for a diverse invertebrate family (Insecta:Diptera:Therevidae) using constraint trees and the parsimony ratchet to overcome low taxon overlap

Thesupertreepresentedhereisanoverarchingphylogenetichypothesis of the Therevidae is presented, incorporating extensive sampling of major lineages and summarising past phylogenetic work on the family, to produce inclusive metaphylogenies in situations where source trees have poor data overlap and low taxon overlap.

The phylogeny of stiletto flies (Diptera: Therevidae)

The results strongly support the sister‐group relationship between Therevidae and Scenopinidae, with Apsilocephalidae as sister to Evocoidae, and Agapophytinae are recovered as monophyletic, inclusive of the Taenogera group.

Collessiama (Diptera: Therevidae: Agapophytinae: Taenogera genus-group), a new genus from eastern Australia, with a key to the Australian genera of Therevidae

The dichotomous key to Australian therevid genera is updated to include Evan-somyia and Collessiama , and a key to species of Collessuama is provided.



New species of Eupsilocephala Kröber from Australia (Diptera: Therevidae)

The stiletto fly genus Eupsilocephala Krober is a member of the Taenogera genus-group endemic to Australia. Two new species of this rarely collected genus, Eupsilocephala albodorsalis sp. nov. and

The Nearctic Genus Ammonaios Irwin and Lyneborg 1981 (Diptera: Therevidae)

A cladistic analysis provides hypotheses of phylogenetic relationships within the genus, and the monophyly of Ammonaios was affirmed when tested with respect to species within its putatively closely related genera.

Systematics of Nanexila Winterton & Irwin, gen. nov. (Diptera:Therevidae) from Australia

The Nanexila genus of typically small, slender flies is divided into three species-groups following cladistic analysis and the phylogenetic relationships of Nanexiladiscussed, with four new species being described from Australia.

Phylogenetic revision of the Taenogera Kröber genus-group (Diptera: Therevidae), with descriptions of two new genera

The phylogenetic relationships of the Taenogera genus-group, consisting of nine genera, are examined using cladistic methods and new genera are described and figured, supporting the removal of Nanexila gracilis (Mann) comb.

Phylogenetic revision of Agapophytinae subf.n. (Diptera: Therevidae) based on molecular and morphological evidence

A synergistic interaction between incongruent data partitions indicates a common phylogenetic signal in both partitions, and suggests that criteria for partition combination based solely on incONGruence may be misleading.
