Prochetostoma, a New Genus Proposed as a Basal Group of the Subtribe Chetostomatina (Diptera: Tephritidae)

  title={Prochetostoma, a New Genus Proposed as a Basal Group of the Subtribe Chetostomatina (Diptera: Tephritidae)},
  author={Ho-Yeon Han},
A new genus, Prochetostoma Han, is proposed based on two tephritid species: P. bhutanicum, n. sp., and P. contemnens (Hering). A cladogram of these species and representative species of all the other genera of the subtribe Chetostomatina (Tribe Trypetini) is presented in discussion of the phylogenetic position of the new genus. Prochetostoma is recognized as a basal group within the subtribe, but its monophyly is neither supported nor rejected. A tentative phylogeny of the whole Chetostomatina… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

A new species of Philophylla Rondani (Diptera: Tephritidae: Trypetini) from New Caledonia, recognized based on female postabdominal structure and molecular sequence data

This new species is a member of the genus Philophylla Rondani based both on the female postabdominal structure as well as DNA sequence data and its relationship to other New Caledonia trypetine species was analyzed.

Phylogeny of the Genus Paramyiolia Shiraki (Diptera: Tephritidae: Trypetini) with Descriptions of Five Chinese Species

The discovery of 5 species of Paramyiolia Shiraki in China are recognized, and one of these cryptic species appears to be more closely related genetically to the morphologically distinct P. nigricornis than to the other cryptic species.



Taxonomic revision of Paramyiolia Shiraki (Diptera: Tephritidae) with analyses of their phylogenetic relationships

The previously monotypic genus Paramyiolia Shiraki is redefined based on the type species, P. takeuchii Shiraki, plus three species formerly known as Anomoia cornuta Ito, Myoleja rhino Steyskal, and MyoleJA nigricornis (Doane), and their phylogenetic relationships are analyzed.

Molecular phylogenetic study of Tephritidae (Insecta: Diptera) using partial sequences of the mitochondrial 16S ribosomal DNA.

It is proposed that the 16S rDNA shows great promise for helping to create a phylogenetically based higher classification of the Tephritidae.
