The ordinal level phylogeny of the Arachnida and the suprafamilial level phylogeny of the Opiliones were studied on the basis of a combined analysis of 253 morphological characters, the complete sequence of the 18S rRNA gene, and the D3 region of the 28S rRNA gene. [...] Key Method Molecular data were collected for 63 terminal taxa. Morphological data were collected for 35 exemplar taxa of Opiliones, but groundplans were applied to some of the remaining chelicerate groups.Expand
Phylogeny of the true water bugs (Nepomorpha: Hemiptera–Heteroptera) based on 16S and 28S rDNA and morphology
TLDR
The present analysis strongly supports a sister group relationship between the families Aphelocheiridae and Potamocoridae, a monophylum for which a new superfamily,Aphelocheiroidea, is proposed. Expand
A new genus of cyphophthalmid from the Iberian Peninsula with a phylogenetic analysis of the Sironidae (Arachnida : Opiliones : Cyphophthalmi) and a SEM database of external morphology
TLDR
Results suggest that the new genus is sister to Paramiopsalis Juberthie, 1962, although nodal support for this relationship is low, and Phylogenetic analysis is conducted using equal weights and the implied weighting method as a means of testing the stability of clades with respect to parameter variation.

On bivalve phylogeny: a high‐level analysis of the Bivalvia (Mollusca) based on combined morphology and DNA sequence data
Abstract. Bivalve classification has suffered in the past from the crossed-purpose discussions among paleontologists and neontologists, and many have based their proposals on single characterExpand
Systematics and biogeography of the family Scorpionidae (Chelicerata : Scorpiones), with a discussion on phylogenetic methods
TLDR
This reconstruction identifies Opistophthalmus as the basal lineage of the Scorpionidae, rather than the sister-group of Scorpio, as well as demonstrating relationships among the scorpionid genera as follows. Expand
A combined approach to the phylogeny of Cephalopoda (Mollusca)
TLDR
This study provides a comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of Cephalopoda (Mollusca) using a combination of molecular and morphological data, finding Vampyromorpha formed the sister group to Decabrachia under the majority of parameters. Expand
The evolutionary and biogeographic history of the armoured harvestmen – Laniatores phylogeny based on ten molecular markers, with the description of two new families of Opiliones (Arachnida)
TLDR
Ancestral range reconstruction of the clade suggests that the ancestral range of Samooidea comprises West Tropical Gondwana (West Africa + Neotropics), whereas that of Zalmoxoidea is exclusively Neotropical. Expand
A modern approach to rotiferan phylogeny: combining morphological and molecular data.
TLDR
The phylogeny of selected members of the phylum Rotifera is examined based on analyses under parsimony direct optimization and Bayesian inference of phylogeny, and monophyly was generally supported for the represented ploimid families and genera. Expand
First molecular phylogeny of the major clades of Pseudoscorpiones (Arthropoda: Chelicerata).
TLDR
The phylogenetic pattern suggests that venom glands evolved just once within this order of arachnids, and Feaelloidea constituted the sister group to all other pseudoscorpions; Chthonioidea is the sistergroup to the remaining families, which constitute the group Iocheirata sensu Harvey--a clade including pseudosCorpions with venom glands within the pedipalpal fingers. Expand
Phylogeny of the cricket subfamily Eneopterinae (Orthoptera, Grylloidea, Eneopteridae) based on four molecular loci and morphology.
TLDR
This study represents the first molecular phylogeny performed for this insect suborder at this level of diversity, and is also in term of corroboration of a previous phylogeny of Eneopterinae, built on morphological data alone. Expand
A CLADISTIC ANALYSIS OF THE CYPHOPHTHALMID GENERA (OPILIONES, CYPHOPHTHALMI)
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the genera of Cyphophthalmi is undertaken by studying 32 morphological characters in 43 species representing all families and most genera, and molecular characters strongly support the monophyly of Troglosironidae + Neogoveidae. Expand

Phylogeny of the arachnid order Opiliones (Arthropoda) inferred from a combined approach of complete 18S and partial 28S ribosomal DNA sequences and morphology.
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships among the main evolutionary lines of the arachnid order Opiliones were investigated by means of molecular and morphological data sets and the most supported hypothesis suggests that Palpatores are paraphyletic. Expand
The Phylogeny of the Extant Chelicerate Orders
TLDR
The phylogeny of the extant chelicerate orders is examined in the light of morphological and molecular evidence, with the placement of solifugids and the status of the pedipalps responsible for most disagreement fairly robust to variation in analysis parameters. Expand
REVIEW Evolution and systematics of the Chelicerata
TLDR
Most morphologists, palaeontologists and molecular taxonomists agree that the Arthropoda are a monophylum, and new molecular data as well as some morphological characters show similarities which the Myriapoda share with the Chelicerata, suggesting that there is no taxon Antennata or Atelocerata.

Phylogeny of Opiliones (Arachnida): An Assessment of the "Cyphopalpatores" Concept
TLDR
Analysis of relationships among the major lineages of Opiliones using both genitalic and non-genitalic char- acters reaffirms the observation that a given hypothesis of character evolution can be consistent with several phylogenetic hypotheses and that an empirically robust phylogenetic analysis should include more than one character system.

EVOLUTIONARY MORPHOLOGY AND PHYLOGENY OF ARAGHNIDA
TLDR
A cladistic analysis of the 11 Recent arachnid orders suggests that Arachnida is monophyletic and composed of two principal lineages, Micrura and Dromopoda. Expand
The phylogenetic status of arthropods, as inferred from 18S rRNA sequences.
TLDR
It is suggested that a previous study's inference of the Arthropoda as paraphyletic may be the result of having two few arthropod taxa available for analysis and including long-branched taxa, and that the evolutionary-parsimony method, like distance and parsimony, may be biased by taxa with long branches.

TLDR
The high level of sequence heterogeneity in the 18S rRNA gene makes placement of certain taxa with “unusual” sequences difficult and underscores the necessity of combining ribosomal gene data with other sources of information. Expand
