Overlooked gall-inducing moths revisited, with the description of Andescecidiumparrai gen. et sp. n. and Olierasaizi sp. n. from Chile (Lepidoptera, Cecidosidae)
This work clarifies the taxonomy of the Chilean cecidosid species and proposes a time-calibrated phylogeny using sequences from mitochondrial and nuclear loci, including specimens of the new proposed taxa.
Cecidonius pampeanus, gen. et sp. n.: an overlooked and rare, new gall-inducing micromoth associated with Schinus in southern Brazil (Lepidoptera, Cecidosidae)
Cecidonius pampeanus is a new genus and species of cecidosid moth from the Pampa biome, south Brazil and a phylogeny for Cecidosidae is inferred using sequences from mitochondrial and nuclear loci, and genetic variation and gene flow across ten populations are characterized.
Why do the galls induced by Calophya duvauae Scott on Schinus polygamus (Cav.) Cabrera (Anacardiaceae) change colors
The alterations in gall structure and color were related to the gradual decreasing in galling stimuli, and a notable reduction in the contents of all pigments in the galls when compared to non-galled leaves, especially for total anthocyanins in green galls.
Anatomical and phenological implications of the relationship between Schinus polygama (Cav.) (Cabrera) and the galling insect Calophya rubra (Blanchard).
Based on the anatomical, histometric and histochemical analysis, the conical stem gall traits imply gains over the non-galled stem toward the galling insect survival, but the maintenance of phellem, secretory ducts and pith indicate conservative developmental traits that cannot be manipulated by C. rubra.
Phylogeny of Schinus L. (Anacardiaceae) with a new infrageneric classification and insights into evolution of spinescence and floral traits.
A novel sectional classification of Schinus is presented based on a combination of character states associated with geographic distribution, corresponding to lineages that are mostly allopatric or at least ecologically distinct.
A new Brazilian Passiflora leafminer: Spinivalva gaucha, gen. n., sp. n. (Lepidoptera, Gracillariidae, Gracillariinae), the first gracillariid without a sap-feeding instar
Although the larvae are hypermetamorphic as in other Gracillariidae, there is no sap-feeding instar in Spinivalva gaucha; the larva feeds on the palisade parenchyma, thus producing granular frass during all instars.
Phylogeography of the gall-inducing micromoth Eucecidoses minutanus Brèthes (Cecidosidae) reveals lineage diversification associated with the Neotropical Peripampasic Orogenic Arc
Investigating the molecular phylogenetic divergence and historical biogeography of the gall-inducing micromoth Eucecidoses minutanus Brèthes (Cecidosidae) in the Neotropical region found that the distribution pattern coincides with the Peripampasic orogenic arc, with most populations occurring in the mountainous areas located east of the Andes and on the Atlantic coast.
A molecular phylogeny for the oldest (nonditrysian) lineages of extant Lepidoptera, with implications for classification, comparative morphology and life‐history evolution
The goal of this paper is to test previous hypotheses of nonditrysian phylogeny against a data set consisting of 61 nond itrysian species plus 20 representative Ditrysia and eight outgroups (Trichoptera), nearly all sequenced for 19 nuclear genes (up to 14 700 bp total).
Galls of Cecidoses eremita Curtis and Eucecidoses minutanus Brèthes (Lepidoptera: Cecidosidae) in Magdalena, Buenos Aires Province: preliminary study and associated fauna
En Argentina se registran cinco especies cecidogenas de la familia Cecidosidae (Lepidoptera), entre ellas Cecidoses eremita Curtis y Eucecidoses minutanus Brethes. Se reporta un estudio preliminar de


Description of the New Zealand incurvarioid Xanadoses nielseni, gen. nov., sp. nov. and placement in Cecidosidae (Lepidoptera)
Xanadoses nielseni, gen. nov., sp. nov. is described from New Zealand, where it is the only native member of the superfamily Incurvarioidea. The larva is a bark-miner, making long tortuous galleries
The jumping plant-lice (Hemiptera, Psylloidea) associated with Schinus (Anacardiaceae): systematics, biogeography and host plant relationships
The gall-forming psylloid fauna associated with the temperate Neotropical plant genus Schinus is revised, and keys are provided for adults, larvae and galls, and cladistic analyses suggest that the Schinus inhabiting calophyids form two monophyletic groups.
The first southern hemisphere prodoxid and the phylogeny of the Incurvarioidea (Lepidoptera)
Abstract. The first southern hemisphere representative of the otherwise exclusively northern hemisphere incurvarioid family Prodoxidae, Prodoxoides asymmetra gen.n., sp.n., is described from southern

The estimated age of the moths far predates the host fossil record, but is consistent with suggested host age based on paleobotanical, climatological, biogeographical, and geological data, and a tentative estimation from an rbcL-based molecular clock for yuccas.
Biogeographic areas and transition zones of Latin America and the Caribbean islands based on panbiogeographic and cladistic analyses of the entomofauna.
Track and cladistic biogeographic analyses based on insect taxa are used as a framework to interpret patterns of the Latin American and Caribbean entomofauna by identifying biogeographic areas on the
DNA primers for amplification of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I from diverse metazoan invertebrates.
We describe "universal" DNA primers for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of a 710-bp fragment of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene (COI) from 11 invertebrate phyla:

The recently‐developed statistical method known as the “bootstrap” can be used to place confidence intervals on phylogenies and shows significant evidence for a group if it is defined by three or more characters.
New algorithms and methods to estimate maximum-likelihood phylogenies: assessing the performance of PhyML 3.0.
A new algorithm to search the tree space with user-defined intensity using subtree pruning and regrafting topological moves and a new test to assess the support of the data for internal branches of a phylogeny are introduced.

jModelTest is a new program for the statistical selection of models of nucleotide substitution based on "Phyml" that implements 5 different selection strategies, including "hierarchical and dynamical likelihood ratio tests," the "Akaike information criterion", the "Bayesian information criterion," and a "decision-theoretic performance-based" approach.
