Congruence and controversy: toward a higher-level phylogeny of Diptera.
TLDR
Significant areas critical to future advances in understanding dipteran phylogeny include the relationships among the basal infraorders of Diptera and Brachycera and the relationships between the superfamilies of acalyptrates.
Phylogeny of the nematocerous families of Diptera (Insecta)
TLDR
It is suggested that the Ptychopteromorpha–Culicomorha clade is the sister-group of all other extant Diptera and the Axymyiidae are part of a monophyletic Bibionmorpha.
Gobryidae, a new family of acalyptrate flies (Diptera: Diopsoidea), and a discussion of relationships of the diopsoid families.
TLDR
The morphology of Gobrya is largely undescribed, and the aim of this paper is to make known aspects of the adult morphology of this genus, together with that of other taxa that have been referred to the superfamily Diopsoidea or Nothyboidea, in order to throw some light on its phylogenetic relationships.
Phylogenetic analysis of the Blephariceromorpha, with special reference to mountain midges (Diptera: Deuterophlebiidae)
TLDR
A cladistic analysis of the Blephariceromorpha provides a test of the phylogenetic hypotheses of Rohdendorf (1964, 1974), Hennig (1973), Wood & Borkent (1989) and Courtney (1990a), and thirteen synapotypies support monophyly of the Nymphomyiidae, Deuterophlebiidae and BlePhariceridae, respectively.
Homology and phylogenetic implications of male genitalia in Diptera - Eremoneura
TLDR
The above characters support the monophyly of the Eremoneura and also indicate that the Empidoidea and Cyclorrhapha are sister groups, as opposed to alternative hypotheses that suggest the EmPidoideA is paraphyletic with respect to the Cyclor rhapha.
Evolution and phylogeny of the Diptera: a molecular phylogenetic analysis using 28S rDNA sequences.
TLDR
The results support the view that the mouthparts of extant dipteran larvae evolved from a derived ground state characterized by subdivided and obliquely moving mandibles.
The internal female genital organs of Chaetodiopsis and Diasemopsis (Diptera: Diopsidae) and their systematic relevance
TLDR
The morphology of the internal female reproductive organs of Chaetodiopsis meigenii and four Diasemopsis species, all based on material from Natal (South Africa), is descriptionbed, confirming that this character system can be valuable for phylogenetic analysis, as suggested by previous authors.
The Southern African Species of Neminidae (Diptera: Schizophora)
TLDR
The world fauna of the rarely collected family Neminidae, and the known biology of some of its species are reviewed, and unique character states of southern African Nemo species are discussed.
The families Diastatidae and Campichoetidae (Diptera, Drosophiloidea) with a revision of Palaearctic and Nepalese species of Diastata Meigen
TLDR
The family Diastatidae is retained for Diastata Meigen alone, because of its many differences from the Ephydridae and Risidae to which it is allied.
A revision of New World Cyamops Melander (Diptera: Periscelididae)
TLDR
The monophyly of Cyamops is clearly demonstrated, as is that for some species groups within the genus, however, the relationships between species groups are not well known.
