Notes on the nomenclature of the endemic Hawaiian Drosophilidae

  title={Notes on the nomenclature of the endemic Hawaiian Drosophilidae},
  author={Patrick Michael O'Grady},
Hardy’s revision of the Hawaiian Drosophilidae included 9 genera, Antopocerus, Ateledrosophila, Celidosoma, Drosophila, Grimshawomyia, Idiomyia, Nudidrosophila, Scaptomyza, and Titanochaeta (Hardy, 1965). These were considered to be part of two major lineages, “drosophiloids” and “scaptomyzoids,” based on a number of morphological synapomorphies (Throckmorton, 1966). The drosophiloid, or Hawaiian Drosophila, lineage contained the Drosophila species endemic to Hawai’i, as well as the endemic…

Revision of the ‘nudidrosophila’ and ‘ateledrosophila’ species groups of Hawaiian Drosophila (Diptera: Drosophilidae), with descriptions of twenty‐two new species
The two groups of Hawaiian Drosophila species groups, formerly described as genera, are revised, provide a key to males and females, and describe fully all species.
A supertree analysis and literature review of the genus Drosophila and closely related genera (Diptera, Drosophilidae)
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.
Phylogenetic classification of the Drosophilidae Rondani (Diptera): the role of morphology in the postgenomic era
The study shows the necessity of analysing morphological characters within a molecular phylogenetic framework to translate molecular phylogenies into taxonomically‐comprehensive classifications.
Comments on the proposed conservation of usage of Drosophila Fallén , 1823 ( Insecta , Diptera ) ( Case 3407 ; see BZN
The proposition of Van der Linde et al. (BZN 64: 238–242) to maintain the name of Drosophila melanogaster has two consequences. The first is the loss of the name ‘Sophophora’ through synonymy with
A Database of Wing Diversity in the Hawaiian Drosophila
A photographic database of over 180 mounted, adult wings from 73 species of Hawaiian Drosophila highlights the striking variation in size, shape, venation, and pigmentation in Hawaiian Dosophila, despite their generally low levels of DNA sequence divergence.
Molecular biogeography and diversification of the endemic terrestrial fauna of the Hawaiian Islands

While molecular studies on Hawaiian fauna have burgeoned since the mid-1990s, much remains unknown, and among multi-island species studied, complex patterns of diversification are exhibited, reflecting heightened dispersal potential.
