BackgroundPhylogenetic analyses provide a framework for examining the evolution of morphological and molecular diversity, interpreting patterns in biogeography, and achieving a stable classification. The generic and suprageneric relationships within mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) are poorly resolved, making these subjects difficult to address.ResultsWe carried out maximum parsimony and maximum likelihood, including Bayesian, analyses on a data set consisting of six nuclear genes and 80… Expand
Phylogeny and temporal diversification of mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) with an emphasis on the Neotropical fauna
TLDR
Molecular divergence time estimates revealed that the two mosquito subfamilies, Anophelinae and Culicinae, diverged in the early Jurassic (approximately 197.5 Mya), but most major lineages of these groups arose after the Cretaceous, coincident with the emergence of angiosperms and the expansion of mammals and birds. Expand
A phylogenomic analysis of Culicomorpha (Diptera) resolves the relationships among the eight constituent families
TLDR
A whole‐transcriptome shotgun phylogenomic approach is used to clarify the relationships among all families of Culicomorpha and discusses briefly nodes that remain poorly supported even with thousands of genes and mention problems with vouchering in transcriptomic studies. Expand
Explosive radiation or uninformative genes? Origin and early diversification of tachinid flies (Diptera: Tachinidae).
TLDR
Although much expanded taxon sampling is necessary to effectively assess the monophyly of and relationships among major tachinid lineages and their relatives, it is shown that a small number of well-chosen nuclear protein-coding genes can successfully resolve even difficult phylogenetic problems. Expand
Molecular Clock and Phylogeny of Anopheles species of the subgenus Nyssorhynchus (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
The phylogeny of the subgenus Nyssorhynchus is inferred through the sequences characterized for the molecular markers ND6, COI-Barcode, White and CAD, in addition the times of divergence for the main lineages corresponding to the sections Albimanus, Argyritarsis and MyzorHynchella are calculated using Bayesian approaches. Expand
The phylogeny of Anophelinae revisited: inferences about the origin and classification of Anopheles (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
A refined interpretation of relationships based on analyses of a revised data set that includes an additional species is presented and the monophyly and non‐monophyly of the informal subordinate taxa of subgenera Nyssorhynchus, Cellia and Anopheles, and also evolutionary scenarios, are discussed. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Culex subgenus Melanoconion (Diptera: Culicidae) based on nuclear and mitochondrial protein-coding genes
TLDR
The phylogenetic signal contained in nuclear genes, when analysed together, was more informative than each gene analysed separately, corroborating monophyly of Melanoconion relative to Culex (Culex) species included in the analyses, the Melanconion and Spissipes Sections and some species groups. Expand
Characterization of the complete mitogenome of Anopheles aquasalis, and phylogenetic divergences among Anopheles from diverse geographic zones
TLDR
Bayesian analysis suggests that the most recent ancestor of Nyssorhynchus and Anopheles + Cellia was extant ~83 MYA, corroborating current estimates of ~79–100 MYA and additional sampling and publication of African, Asian, and North American anopheline mitogenomes would improve the resolution of the Anophele phylogeny and clarify early continental dispersal routes. Expand
Molecular Phylogeney and Evolutionary Relationship among Four Mosquito (Diptera: Culicidae) Species from India Using PCR-RFLP
TLDR
The phylogenetic relation among the four different Culicidae mosquito species Anopheles stephensi, Aedes aegypti , Aedes albopictus and Culex quinquefasciatus is established by using Polymerase chain reaction-Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) of Cytochrome Oxidase I ( COI ) gene. Expand
The phylogenetic conundrum of Lutzia (Diptera: Culicidae: Culicini): a cautionary account of conflict and support
TLDR
It is critical to critically examine the results of other phylogenetic studies of culicinine relationships and conclude that no morphological or molecular data set analysed in any study conducted to date has adequate signal to place Lutziaunequivocally with regard to other taxa in Culicini. Expand
Culicidae evolutionary history focusing on the Culicinae subfamily based on mitochondrial phylogenomics
TLDR
It is demonstrated that low-coverage sequencing is effective to recover mitogenomes, establish phylogenetic knowledge and hence generate basic fundamental information that will help in the understanding of the role of these species as pathogen vectors. Expand

Toward understanding Anophelinae (Diptera, Culicidae) phylogeny: insights from nuclear single-copy genes and the weight of evidence.
TLDR
The present data and other available evidence suggest a South American origin of Anophelinae, probably in the Mesozoic; a rapid diversification of Bironella and basal subgeneric lineages of Anopheles, potentially associated with the breakup of Gondwanaland; and a relatively recent and rapid dispersion of subgenus Anophele. Expand
Higher-level phylogeny of mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae): mtDNA data support a derived placement for Toxorhynchites
TLDR
The mitochondrial gene data that are presented show good potential for elucidating suprageneric relationships in Culicidae, and strongly support the placement of Toxorhynchites well within the Culicinae. Expand
Phylogeny and classification of the Culicidae (Diptera)
TLDR
The results indicate that Aedini is a paraphyletic assemblage with respect to the Mansoniini, each of which is monophyletic in itself, and supports the monophyly of the subfamily Anophelinae and the tribes Culicini and Sabethini. Expand
Utility of the white gene in estimating phylogenetic relationships among mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae).
TLDR
The utility of a nuclear protein-coding gene for reconstructing phylogenetic relationships within the family Culicidae was explored, and an intron present in the Culicinae-Toxorhynchitinae lineage and one outgroup taxon was absent in the basal Anophelinaes lineage and the second outgroupTaxon, suggesting that intron insertions or deletions may not always be reliable systematic characters. Expand
Phylogenetics and temporal diversification of the earliest true flies (Insecta: Diptera) based on multiple nuclear genes
TLDR
Relationships among families of the lower Diptera (formerly suborder ‘Nematocera’) are resolved using sequence data from four nuclear markers, including both ribosomal (28S rDNA) and protein‐coding (CAD, TPI and PGD) genes, and the results support both novel and traditional arrangements. Expand
Phylogeny and classification of Ochlerotatus and allied taxa (Diptera: Culicidae: Aedini) based on morphological data from all life stages
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships and generic assignments of ‘Ochlerotatus’ and related taxa of uncertain taxonomic position in the classification of Aedini are explored using 297 characters from eggs, fourth-instar larvae, pupae, adults and immature habitat coded for 158 exemplar species. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of the Culicomorpha inferred from 18S and 5.8S ribosomal DNA sequences (Diptera: Nematocera)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses demonstrated that within the infraorder Culicomorpha, taxa in the families Corethrellidae, Chaoboridae and Culicidae formed a monophyletic group; there was support for a sister relationship between this lineage and a representative of the Chironomldae. Expand
Phylogeny of the infraorder Culicomorpha (Diptera: Nematocera) based on 28S RNA gene sequences
TLDR
The phylogenetic positions of the groups characterized by feeding on vertebrate blood or insect haemolymph (the Culicidae, Chaoboridae, Ceratopogonidae and Simuliidae) suggest that haematophagy has appeared at least twice in the evolution of Culicomorpha. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the green lacewings (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae)
TLDR
This study represents the first use of the CAD gene to investigate phylogenetic relationships of the lacewings, and recovered all of the previously established subfamilial and tribal groups as monophyletic clades except Apochrysinae sensu lato. Expand
Phylogeny of Anophelinae (Diptera: Culicidae) based on nuclear ribosomal and mitochondrial DNA sequences
TLDR
The most basal relationships within genus Anopheles are not well resolved by any of the data partitions, although the results of statistical analyses of the rDNA data suggest that the clade consisting of Bironella, Lophopodomyia, Nyssorhynchus and Kerteszia is the sister to theClade containing Cellia and Anophele.
