Tipuloidea, the crane flies, are a diverse lineage of true flies (Insecta: Diptera) whose phylogenetic classification and taxonomy remain a challenge. Here we present the results of a quantitative phylogenetic analysis of Tipuloidea based on combined morphological characters (adult, larvae and pupae) and nuclear gene sequence data (28S rDNA and CAD). Forty‐five species, from 44 genera and subgenera, were sampled, representing the four putative families of Tipuloidea (Cylindrotomidae, Limoniidae… Expand
Comparative Mt Genomics of the Tipuloidea (Diptera: Nematocera: Tipulomorpha) and Its Implications for the Phylogeny of the Tipulomorpha
TLDR
Trees inferred by Bayesian methods strongly support a sister-group relationship between Trichoceridae and Tipuloidea, and phylogenetic trees indicate that the family Limoniidae is a paraphyletic group. Expand
Transcriptomes of three species of Tipuloidea (Diptera, Tipulomorpha) and implications for phylogeny of Tipulomorpha
TLDR
Phylogenetic trees constructed using maximum likelihood (ML) based on the 1,709 single-copy orthologs genes indicated that the relationship between the four major infraorders of lower Diptera was: Culicomorpha + (Tipulomorrha + (Psychodomorha + (Bibionomorphal + Brachycera) + Trichoceridae). Expand
Mesozoic fossils and the phylogeny of Tipulomorpha (Insecta: Diptera)
TLDR
Male terminalia of Triassic Tipulomorpha are described for the first time: a terminal gonostylus divided into a fleshy setose clasper and a lobe in Archilimonia grauvogeliana sp. Expand
Phylogeny and Biogeography of the Enigmatic Ghost Lineage Cylindrotomidae (Diptera: Nematocera)
TLDR
It is suggested that the crown group of the Cylindrotomidae began to diversify during the Cenozoic, unlike their sister group Tipulidae. Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of the enigmatic ghost lineage Cylindrotomidae (Diptera, Nematocera)
TLDR
It is suggested that the crown group of the Cylindrotomidae began to diversify during the Cenozoic, unlike their sister group Tipulidae. Expand
The evolutionary history of Lipsothrix Loew (Diptera : Tipuloidea) inferred through systematic revision and historical biogeographical analysis
TLDR
Two major paleogeographical developments occurring in the Oriental and Eastern Palearctic regions are largely responsible for Lipsothrix diversification, the collision of the Indian plate with Asia and the rise of the trans-Beringian land bridges during the Tertiary and Quaternary. 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
The State of Phylogenetic Analysis: Narrow Visions and Simple Answers-Examples from the Diptera (flies).
TLDR
Current phylogenetic analyses have come to increasingly depend on DNA sequence-based characters, in spite of their tumultuous history of inconsistent results, so they should be viewed with caution and certainly not as a panacea as they are commonly portrayed. Expand
How cold‐adapted flightless flies dispersed over the northern hemisphere: phylogeny and biogeography of the snow fly genus Chionea Dalman (Diptera: Limoniidae)
TLDR
A strictly morphological analysis appears to be insufficient to fully resolve the phylogeny of the genus at the species level, and future molecular work should provide additional evidence for the establishment of relationships among the members of Chionea. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the hyperdiverse genus Sarcophaga (Diptera: Sarcophagidae), and comparison between algorithms for identification of rogue taxa
TLDR
Molecular data from the genes COI and 28S are used to reconstruct the phylogeny of Sarcophaga based on the most comprehensive sampling for the group to date, which finds Nearctic taxa were found to be the earliest diverging lineages, followed by a subsequent diversification of Old World faunas.

Analysis of the crane flies (Diptera, Tipuloidea) subfamilies relationships using molecular sequence data
TLDR
The phylogeny of crane flies was inferred from the fragments of the protein coding mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I and the nuclear elongation factor 1α genes, and the combined data set confirmed the monophyly of the crane fly subfamilies, Tipulinae, Cylindrotominee, Uliinaes, Pediciinae), Limoniinae and Chioneinae. Expand
Phylogeny of the Limnophilinae (Limoniidae) and early evolution of the Tipulomorpha (Diptera)
TLDR
This study presents the most comprehensive cladistic analysis of the group ever made, with emphasis on the genera and subgenera of the subfamily Limnophilinae (Limoniidae), assumed to include some of the earliest lineages of Tipulomorpha sensu stricto and therefore important for the understanding of the early patterns in the evolution of the crane flies. Expand
Monophyly and Relationships of the Tabanomorpha (Diptera: Brachycera) Based on 28S Ribosomal Gene Sequences
TLDR
The results contradict several published hypotheses that associate Vermileonidae with asiloid or eremoneuran taxa remote from the Tabanomorpha, and corroborate several recent phylogenetic hypotheses based on comparative morphology. Expand
Evolution and phylogeny of the Diptera: a molecular phylogenetic analysis using 28S rDNA sequences.
TLDR
The results support the view that the mouthparts of extant dipteran larvae evolved from a derived ground state characterized by subdivided and obliquely moving mandibles. Expand
Evolution and phylogenetic utility of CAD (rudimentary) among Mesozoic-aged Eremoneuran Diptera (Insecta).
TLDR
Nearly the entire carbomoylphosphate synthase (CPS) domain of CAD is sequenced from 29 species of flies representing all major clades within Eremoneura, or higher flies, and several orthorrhaphous brachyceran outgroups, and exhibits considerable phylogenetic utility. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of the insect order Odonata using 28S and 16S rDNA sequences: a comparison between data sets with different evolutionary rates
TLDR
Character reconstruction analysis suggests that multiple hits at the rapidly evolving sites in the 16S rDNA degenerated the phylogenetic signals of the data set, and the Zygoptera are paraphyletic. Expand
Multiple sources of character information and the phylogeny of Hawaiian drosophilids.
TLDR
The data suggest that significant incongruence among data partitions may be isolated to specific relationships and the "false" signal creating this incongrience is most likely to be overcome by a simultaneous analysis. 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 of the nematocerous families of Diptera (Insecta)
TLDR
It is suggested that the Ptychopteromorpha–Culicomorha clade is the sister-group of all other extant Diptera and the Axymyiidae are part of a monophyletic Bibionmorpha. Expand
Conflict, convergent evolution, and the relative importance of immature and adult characters in endopterygote phylogenetics.
TLDR
It is argued that DNA sequence-based matching of immature and adult stages will greatly help with the study of endopterygote immatures and facilitate the assembly of combined character matrices with data from all life-history stages. Expand
