The tribe Lythriini is a small group of diurnally active geometrid moths consisting of a single Palaearctic genus Lythria with five species. The systematic placement of Lythriini has remained controversial: though traditionally it has been placed into the subfamily Larentiinae, a number of morphological characters link this tribe with the subfamily Sterrhinae. A molecular phylogenetic study was conducted to verify the systematic position of Lythriini, using sequences of both mitochondrial and… Expand
Perizomini (Lepidoptera: Geometridae: Larentiinae) are polyphyletic
TLDR
The monophyly of the tribe Perizomini is tested, and the division of this tribe into genera using Bayesian and maximum likelihood analyses of one mitochondrial and eight nuclear gene fragments indicates that the group needs a global revision. Expand
A comprehensive molecular phylogeny of Geometridae (Lepidoptera) with a focus on enigmatic small subfamilies
TLDR
This study analyzed a molecular dataset of 1,206 Geometroidea terminal taxa from all biogeographical regions and found that many tribes were para- or polyphyletic and therefore proposed tens of taxonomic changes at the tribe and subfamily levels. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the genus Lythria and description of the male genitalia of L. venustata (Lepidoptera: Geometridae: Sterrhinae)
We present a molecular phylogeny incorporating all five species of the Palaearctic geometrid genus Lythria, based on a 2810-bp combined data matrix comprising the full sequence of the mitochondrialExpand
Phylogeny of the subfamily Larentiinae (Lepidoptera: Geometridae): integrating molecular data and traditional classifications
TLDR
The current tribal classification of Larentiinae is not controversial from the phylogenetic point of view and that its increasing complexity has merely reflected the accumulation of information, mainly through different methods of biosystematic study having become available for researchers. Expand
Systematic position of the enigmatic African cycad moths: an integrative approach to a nearly century old problem (Lepidoptera: Geometridae, Diptychini)
TLDR
The systematic position and hierarchical level of the moth taxon Diptychini Janse (Lepidoptera: Geometridae), the cycad moths, has remained controversial and comprehensive molecular analyses of eight genes were carried out, using Bayesian inference to construct phylogenetic trees. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of selected European Ennominae (Lepidoptera: Geometridae)
TLDR
The emerging phylogenetic tree of Ennominae suggests only a limited phy- logenetic inertia in body size making this group a promising target for comparative studies on this central life history trait and its correlates. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Sterrhinae moths (Lepidoptera: Geometridae): towards a global classification
TLDR
A multigene phylogenetic study was carried out to test current, mostly morphology‐based hypotheses on Sterrhinae phylogeny with additional material included from further geographical areas and morphologically different lineages, and results generally agree with earlier hypotheses at tribal levels and support the hypothesis that Sterrhinee comprises two major lineages. Expand
The evolution of female flightlessness among Ennominae of the Holarctic forest zone (Lepidoptera, Geometridae).
TLDR
The present phylogenetic hypothesis supports the conclusions of the "adaptive story", a hypothesis of the sequence of evolutionary events leading to flightlessness, and supported the previously established morphology-based division of Ennominae into "ennomine" and "boarmiine" groups of genera. Expand
A morphological appraisal of the new subfamily Epidesmiinae (Lepidoptera: Geometridae) with an overview of all geometrid subfamilies
TLDR
Epidesmiinae, the first new Geometridae subfamily that has been described in 127 years, is revised, indicating that some species fly during the day, most adult records are from the Southern Hemisphere summer months and larvae are found on Myrtaceae. Expand
First record of Scopula orientalis (Alphéraky, 1876) (Lepidoptera, Geometridae) in Romania, at the northern limit of the Balkans
The geometrid moth Scopula orientalis (Alphéraky, 1876) has an apparently disjunct distribution in Europe, with local populations in the Balkans (Macedonia, Bulgaria and Albania where recentlyExpand

Phylogeny and tribal classification of Sterrhinae with emphasis on delimiting Scopulini (Lepidoptera: Geometridae)
TLDR
The association of the included Larentiinae taxa with the Cosymbiini-Rhodometrini-Timandrini lineage questions the monophyly of Sterrhinae. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the subfamilies in Geometridae (Geometroidea: Lepidoptera).
TLDR
Molecular sequence data from three gene fragments were used to examine critically a provisional phylogenetic classification based on morphological characters of the Geometridae, one of the most species-rich families of moths, to explore further the relationship between Sterrhinae and Larentiinae, the question as to whether Ennominae actually represent a monophyletic group, and the relationships between Ennominee and some of the other subfamilies.

Cleorodes Warren, 1894 does not belong in the tribe Boarmiini (Lepidoptera: Geometridae)
TLDR
The geometrid genus Cleorodes is shown to belong in the tribe Gnophini (sensu lato) and not in Boarmiini as previously assumed, and the result is unambiguously supported by a phylogenetic analysis of DNA sequence variation in three nuclear gene regions. Expand
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. Expand
Molecular relationships of the Australian Ennominae (Lepidoptera: Geometridae) and implications for the phylogeny of the Geometridae from molecular and morphological data
TLDR
The results are at odds with traditionally held beliefs on the origins of Geometridae but are in broad agreement with and elaborate on the findings of Abraham et al. (2001). Expand
Phylogeny of Bicyclus (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae) inferred from COI, COII, and EF-1alpha gene sequences.
TLDR
A phylogeny of 54 of the 80 known Bicyclus species is presented based on the combined 3000-bp sequences of two mitochondrial genes, cytochrome oxidase I and II, and the nuclear gene, elongation factor 1alpha, and most phylogenetic signal for the analysis comes from silent substitutions at the third position.

TLDR
It is suggested that wg will be a useful source of characters for phylogenetic studies of butterflies, and perhaps other insect taxa, with divergence times up to 60 million years ago. Expand
Phylogeny of the Geometridae and the evolution of winter moths inferred from a simultaneous analysis of mitochondrial and nuclear genes.
TLDR
The adaptation to cool climates may have been a preadaptation that facilitated the winter moth life cycle, and it is estimated that geometrids began to diverge 54 Mya (62-48 Mya), whereas winter moth lineages differentiated from non-winter moth lineage 34-12 Mya, during the global cooling events in the Oligocene and the early Miocene.
