Revalidation and taxonomic revision of Teloneria Aczél (Diptera, Neriidae), with description of two new species
The genus Teloneria Aczel, 1954 is resurrected from synonymy with Chaetonerius Hendel, 1913 to include four species: Teloneria apicata (Edwards, 1919) comb. nov., Teloneria bimaculata (Edwards, 1919)Expand
First phylogenetic analysis of the family Neriidae (Diptera), with a study on the issue of scaling continuous characters
The first comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of the Neriidae is performed, including 48 species from all biogeographic regions inhabited, as well as five species of Micropezidae and one Cypselosomatidae as outgroups, and confirms the monophyly of the family and of most its genera. Expand
Morphology and development rate of the immature stages of Glyphidops (Oncopsia) flavifrons (Bigot, 1886) (Diptera, Neriidae) under natural conditions
The development of the immature stages of Glyphidops (Oncopsia) flavifrons is examined, which has one of the broadest distributions of Neriidae in southern North America, Central America, and South America; offering excellent opportunities for biological studies. Expand
