An Updated Hoverfly Checklist (Diptera: Syrphidae) of the Mascarene Island of Réunion, France
A commented and updated checklist of the hoverflies from the Mascarene island of Reunion, France, is presented, contributing to better understand the biodiversity of this part of the world.
A Contribution to the Syrphidae (Diptera) fauna of Cameroon, with a Preliminary Checklist of the Family
Results of a study of the Syrphidae fauna of Cameroon are presented, based largely on an expedition to that country conducted in May 2006, indicating that the Cameroonian Syr phytochemical fauna now comprises 96 species in total.
Systematics of Afrotropical Eristalinae (Diptera: Syrphidae) using mitochondrial phylogenomics
This approach illustrates the importance of integrative and iterative approaches in taxonomy and shows that genomic data may not only clarify the systematic relationships among hoverfly genera and species, but also offer perspectives into the evolution of morphological and ecological variation within the family.
DNA Barcoding to Improve the Taxonomy of the Afrotropical Hoverflies (Insecta: Diptera: Syrphidae)
DNA barcoding improves the taxonomy of Afrotropical hoverflies by selecting (groups of) taxa that deserve further taxonomic study, and by attributing the unknown sex to species for which only one of the sexes is known.
A new species of the genus Syritta Le Peletier & Serville, 1828 (Diptera, Syrphidae), with new distributional records of other Syritta species.
Syritta lyneborgi sp. n. is described based on one male collected in Gabon. The new species is provisionally placed in the Syritta bulbus-group and compared with species from this group and from the
Taxonomic revision of the Afrotropical hover fly genus Senaspis Macquart (Diptera, Syrphidae)
DNA barcoding analysis showed that the technique can be used to unambiguously identify the species and the relationships among the different Senaspis species are discussed based on morphological and DNA data.
Flower flies (Diptera, Syrphidae) of French Polynesia, with the description of two new species
DNA barcodes are provided for all flower fly species of French Polynesia, making the syrphid fauna of this country the first one in the world to be entirely barcoded.
New data, same story: phylogenomics does not support Syrphoidea (Diptera: Syrphidae, Pipunculidae)
The results are consistent with previously established hypotheses on Eumuscomorphan evolution, but the approach is new to dipteran phylogeny, using larger‐scale transcriptomic data for the first time for this insect group.
