Information about the phylogenetic relationships of Plecoptera is summarized. The few characters supporting monophyly of the order are outlined. Several characters of possible significance for the search for the closest relatives of the stoneflies are discussed, but the sister-group of the order remains unknown. Numerous characters supporting the presently recognized phylogenetic system of Plecoptera are presented, alternative classifications are discussed, and suggestions for future studies… Expand
The Plecoptera – who are they? The problematic placement of stoneflies in the phylogenetic system of insects
TLDR
A plea for revived interest in plecopteran morphology is made in order to document the existing diversity and to establish the ground pattern of important structures for meaningful comparisons with other insects. Expand
Distribution and phylogenetic relationships of the genus Rhabdiopteryx (Plecoptera, Taeniopterygidae) in Slovakia
A comprehensive comparative morphological and distributional study of stoneflies of the genus Rhadiopteryx (Plecoptera, Taeniopterygidae) resulted in the identification of 10 species. CladisticExpand
Stoneflies (Plecoptera: Perlidae) of Nicaragua
TLDR
This work provides information about the stonefly fauna of Nicaragua, a country for which few previous investigations have been undertaken for this insect group. Expand
Phylogenomics of the North American Plecoptera
TLDR
This taxon sample includes representatives of all families, subfamilies and tribes of the North American fauna, providing the most complete molecular phylogenetic study of theNorth American Plecoptera to date. Expand
Chapter 36 – Order Plecoptera
TLDR
This chapter presents the morphology of stoneflies and cover aspects of their ecology and behavior, and discusses sampling, rearing, and preservation of stonefly specimens. Expand
Two Complete Mitochondrial Genomes From Leuctridae (Plecoptera: Nemouroidea): Implications for the Phylogenetic Relationships Among Stoneflies
TLDR
This work reconstructed the phylogeny of Plecoptera based on 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs) from published stoneflies and showed that the Bayesian inference and maximum-likelihood tree had similar topological structures except for the positions of two families, Peltoperlidae and Scopuridae. Expand
Phylogeny of the Polyneopterous Insects With Emphasis on Plecoptera: Molecular and Morpological Evidence
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the polyneopteran orders based on 18S rDNA, 28S r DNA, Histone 3, and a coded morphology matrix for an extensive sampling of taxa shows the use of congruence between separate datasets as an a priori measure of alignment quality, and suggests the Direct Optimization (formerly Optimization Alignment) produces alignments that are more predictable across the parameter landscape than alignment via CLUSTAL X. Expand
The mitochondrial genome of a stonefly species, Cerconychia sapa (Plecoptera: Styloperlidae)
TLDR
The nearly complete sequence of the mitochondrial DNA of the stonefly, Cerconychia sapa, has been completed and annotated and Phylogenetic analysis suggests that C. sapa is closely related to Styloperla sp. Expand
The mitochondrial genome of Mesocapnia daxingana (Plecoptera: Capniidae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis suggests that M. daxingana is closely related to Mesocapnia arizonensis and Apteroperla tikumana, and both maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference analyses showed strong support for a monophyletic Capniidae, and other five stonefly family formed a monophysletic group. Expand
Insect phylogenomics: new insights on the relationships of lower neopteran orders (Polyneoptera)
TLDR
These relationships based on a new transcriptome data matrix covering almost all polyneopteran orders, except for Mantophasmatodea, Grylloblattodea and Mantodea support a monophyletic Polyneoptera, corroborating previous findings and rejecting the paraphyletic lower neopteran group suggested by various morphological characters and rRNA gene analyses.

Biochemcial systematics of the North American Pteronarcys (Pteronarcyidae: Plecoptera)
TLDR
Allozyme data from eight species of Pteronarcyidae were used to determine phylogenetic relationhips within the family and genus Pter onarcys, and certain analyses yielded species relationships which are in agreement with phylogenies based upon morphological characters from various life-history stages.

Note on the Phylogenetic Systematics of the Family Pteronarcyidae (Plecoptera), with a Description of the Eggs and Nymphs of the Asian Species
TLDR
The phylogeny of the Pteronarcyidae is reassessed using data from previously unavailable life history stages of the Asian species and those from earlier studies by other workers, resulting in a tree that most closely resembles a phylogeny proposed earlier. Expand
Arthropod Phylogeny with Special Reference to Insects
TLDR
Elucidates the major evolutionary pathways of the Phylum Arthropoda, based on the phylogenetic method of Hennig, and focuses on discovering the derived character states that most probably had a common origin in an ancestral state. Expand
Egg Morphology and Phylogeny in Pteronarcyidae (Plecoptera)
TLDR
Egg descriptions and scanning electron microscope photomicrographs are provided for the 10 nearctic pteronarcyid species, and the data suggest Pteronarcys sensu Zwick (1973) is polyphyletic and a revised classification is proposed in which All onarcys is placed in synonymy with PterOnarcys. Expand
Numerical Cladistic Analysis of Phylogenetic Relationships in Plecoptera
TLDR
A reassessment of phylogenetic relationships in Plecoptera using Zwick's (1980) character data shows that the computed Wagner trees are more parsimonious than the existing phylogenies of Ricker (1952), lilies (1965), Zwick (1980), and Brodskiy (1982). Expand
On the genus Kyphopteryx Kimmins (Plecoptera: Taeniopterygidae)
Discovery of the male of Rhabdiopteryx brodskii Zhiltzova has revealed membership of this species in the genus Kyphopteryx Kimmins, not Mesyatsia Ricker and Ross, as was believed for some time. Rh.Expand
Transantarctic Relationships in the Plecoptera
In the past, several authors have suggested that distributions of some families of Plecoptera provide good evidence for the former existance of Gondwanaland. Some of this presumed evidence relied onExpand
Systematics, phylogeny and zoogeography of genus Yoraperla (Plecoptera: Peltoperlidae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic and zoogeographic analyses support the hypothesis of two disjunct clades isolated by an increase in sea level in the Bering Straits and Yoraperla probably arose in the Sierra Nevada of North America and migrated to east Asia along an inland route. Expand
Australian Blepariceridae (Diptera)
TLDR
The sequence of phyletic branching within the Apistomyiini matches geographical distribution from New Zealand to New Caledonia, the Oriental Region, and then to Australia, and it is concluded that the group reached New Zealand from the Neotropical Region via Antarctica, spread along the Inner Melanesian Arc to the Orientalregion, and finally invaded Australia when in the relatively recent past it temporarily made contact with the Oriental region.

TLDR
The females of the ten Tasmanian species of the Aphanicerca group of the Notonemouridae are comparatively described as are the nymphs of seven species, and suggestions are made as to the probable characteristics of the sixth of which only males are known. Expand
