We investigated higher-level phylogenetic relationships within the genus Halictus based on parsimony and maximum likelihood (ML) analysis of elongation factor-1alpha DNA sequence data. Our data set includes 41 OTUs representing 35 species of halictine bees from a diverse sample of outgroup genera and from the three widely recognized subgenera of Halictus (Halictus s.s., Seladonia, and Vestitohalictus). We analyzed 1513 total aligned nucleotide sites spanning three exons and two introns. Equal…

Phylogeny of Halictidae with an emphasis on endemic African Halictinae
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of tribal, generic, and subgeneric relationships within the subfamily Halictinae using a combined data set of three nuclear genes: long-wavelength opsin, wingless, and EF-1α is presented.
The phylogeny and classification of the tribe Halictini, with special reference to the Halictus genus-group (Hymenoptera: Halictidae)
The monophyly of the cosmopolitan tribe Halictini, including over 2300 currently recognized species, is supported by at least a single manifested synapomorphy shared by all members of the tribe:
Molecular phylogeny of the bumble bee subgenus Pyrobombus (Hymenoptera : Apidae : Bombus) with insights into gene utility for lower-level analysis
TLDR
Both Bayesian and parsimony phylogenies are well resolved and indicate a monophyletic Pyrobombus when assessed against representatives of 20 additional subgenera, and the more conserved nuclear genes, especially EF-1α and ArgK, provided good support across all of the taxonomic levels examined.
Molecular phylogeny and historical biogeography of the large carpenter bees, genus Xylocopa (Hymenoptera: Apidae)
TLDR
Historical biogeographical analyses of the genus Xylocopa Latreille are presented, showing that the major splits in the carpenter bee phylogeny occurred well after the final breakup of Gondwanaland, but before important Miocene fusion events.
Molecular phylogeny of telenomine egg parasitoids (Hymenoptera: Platygastridae s.l.: Telenominae): evolution of host shifts and implications for classification
TLDR
The phylogenetic pattern of host shifts suggests comparisons among taxa that may be fruitful in elucidating mechanisms by which parasitoids locate their hosts, the proximate factors that determine the host range, and the changes in these factors that influence host changes.
Phylogeny of colletid bees (Hymenoptera: Colletidae) inferred from four nuclear genes.
Phylogeny and biogeography of bees of the tribe Osmiini (Hymenoptera: Megachilidae).

Phylogeny of the bee genus Lasioglossum ( Hymenoptera : Halictidae ) based on mitochondrial COI sequence data
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of Lasioglossum species and subgenera based on a data set consisting of 1240 bp of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I (COI) gene for seventy-seven taxa finds the social parasite of Dialictus, Paralictus is consistently and unambiguously placed well within Dialicus, thus rendering Dialictu paraphyletic.

TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of Lasioglossum species and subgenera based on a data set consisting of 1240 bp of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I (COI) gene for seventy‐seven taxa finds the social parasite of Dialictus, Paralictus is consistently and unambiguously placed well within Dialicus, thus rendering Dialictu paraphyletic.
Molecular Phylogeny of Fulgoromorpha (Insecta, Hemiptera, Archaeorrhyncha). The Enigmatic Tettigometridae: Evolutionary Affiliations and Historical Biogeography
TLDR
Several parsimony‐based analyses using data sets composed of nucleotide sequences of 18S rDNAs (genes encoding 18SRRNAs) support a monophyletic Fulgoromorpha and depicts Tettigometridae as a relatively derived lineage in a monophysletic relationship with Tropiduchidae.
A molecular phylogeny of the Aphidiinae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae).
TLDR
The inferred phylogeny supported a secondary loss of internal pupation within the Praini and a polyphyletic origin of endoparasitism within the Braconidae, and relationships between the Aphidiinae and the noncyclostome braconids could not be resolved.
Molecular phylogeny of the major arthropod groups indicates polyphyly of crustaceans and a new hypothesis for the origin of hexapods.
TLDR
A phylogeny of the arthropods was inferred from analyses of amino acid sequences derived from the nuclear genes encoding elongation factor-1 alpha and the largest subunit of RNA polymerase II using maximum-parsimony, neighbor-joining, and maximum-likelihood methods, providing support for a Hexapoda/Branchiopoda clade, thus arguing against the monophyly of the traditionally defined Atelocerata.
Mitochondrial DNA differentiation between two cryptic Halictus (Hymenoptera: Halictidae) species
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the aligned sequences showed that H. ligatus and H. poeyi are sister species and differ from each other at 33 of the 797 aligned nucleotide positions, sufficient to cast doubt on a recent glaciation- induced speciation event as the cause of the differentiation of these 2 taxa.
A Cryptic Species Allied to Halictus ligatus Say (Hymenoptera: Halictidae) Detected by Allozyme Electrophoresis
TLDR
A sum mary of the electrophoretic data indicates that there are two species currently referred to as Halictus ligatus, which is probable that true H. ligatus is the northern form and that the Southeastern species should be called either H. poeyi Lepeletier or H. capitosus Smith.
Phylogenetic utility of elongation factor-1 alpha in noctuoidea (Insecta: Lepidoptera): the limits of synonymous substitution.
TLDR
Interestingly, the few nonsynonymous changes appear no more phylogenetically reliable than synonymous changes, and signal strength for basal divergences is weak and fails to improve with character weighting; thus, dense taxon sampling is probably needed for strong inference from EF-1 alpha regarding deeper splits in Noctuoidea (probably early Tertiary).
A highly conserved nuclear gene for low-level phylogenetics: elongation factor-1 alpha recovers morphology-based tree for heliothine moths.
TLDR
This postulate that the single most parsimonious gene tree and the neighbor-joining tree for all nucleotides show almost complete concordance with the morphological tree for the EF-1 alpha gene in the noctuid moth subfamily Heliothinae is tested.
Phylogeny and Behavior in Honey Bees (Hymenoptera: Apidae)
TLDR
Results support the phylogeny produced by separate analyses of the morphological and mitochondrial 16s ribosomal DNA (rDNA) data sets, and contradict the result produced by the mitochondrial COII data set.
