Morphological and molecular data are marshalled to address the question of hexapod ordinal relationships. The combination of 275 morphological variables, 1000 bases of the small subunit nuclear rDNA (18S), and 350 bases of the large subunit nuclear rDNA (28S) are subjected to a variety of analysis parameters (indel and transversion costs). Representatives of each hexapod order are included with most orders represented multiply. Those parameters that minimize character incongruence (ILD of… Expand
The phylogeny of Coleopterida (Hexapoda) – morphological characters and molecular phylogenies
TLDR
A large morphological dataset comprising external and internal features of adults and immature stages is presented here and analysed phylogenetically, indicating that a complex feeding apparatus suitable for saprophagy and sporophagy was ancestral in Coleoptera, with secondary reduction in Archostemata and Adephaga. Expand
The phylogeny and evolutionary timescale of stoneflies (Insecta: Plecoptera) inferred from mitochondrial genomes.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis based on mitochondrial genomic data from 25 stonefly species recovered a well-supported tree resolving higher-level relationships within Plecoptera, confirming the hypothesis that initial divergence between the suborders was driven by the breakup of the supercontinent Pangaea into Laurasia and Gondwanaland. Expand
The mitochondrial genomes of palaeopteran insects and insights into the early insect relationships
TLDR
A next-generation sequencing approach was used to reconstruct new mitochondrial genomes from 18 species of basal insects, including six representatives of Ephemeroptera and 11 of Odonata, plus one species belonging to Zygentoma, which generally recovered Zygentomas as a monophyletic group, which formed a sister group to Pterygota. Expand
The Phylogeny and Evolutionary History of Arthropods
TLDR
It is now broadly recognized that extant arthropods are split into chelicerates and mandibulates, and relationships within the two mandibulate clades (myriapods and pancrustaceans) are stabilizing, and the phylogeny of insects is now understood with considerable confidence, whereas relationships among chelicerate orders remain poorly resolved.

Molecular identification of seven new Zygopteran genera from South China through partial cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI) gene
TLDR
The presented results showed a higher diversity of damselflies in the south China regions and significant genetic diversity was found for all sequences at 346 mutations confirmed by two tests, Tajima's D and Fu's Fs. Expand
MicroRNA evolution provides new evidence for a close relationship of Diplura to Insecta
TLDR
This study identified 91 conserved microRNA families from 36 panarthropod taxa, including seven newly sequenced non‐insect hexapods, and found major clade differentiation accompanied by the origin of novel miRNA families, and most miRNA clusters are conserved with a high degree of microsynteny.

Reanalyzing the Palaeoptera problem - The origin of insect flight remains obscure.
TLDR
This work reanalyze available phylogenomic data with a focus on detecting confounding and alternative signal and provides a framework to quantitatively evaluate and assess incongruent molecular phylogenetic signal inherent in phylogenomic datasets. Expand

Abstract Classification is the most important approach to cataloging biological diversity. It serves as a principal means of communication between scientific disciplines, as well as betweenExpand
New sawflies from the mid-Cretaceous Myanmar amber (Insecta: Hymenoptera: Syspastoxyelidae)
TLDR
Three new taxa of sawflies are described from mid-Cretaceous Myanmar amber, suggesting that syspastoxyelids were speciose and prosperous in the ecosystem, even though only one family of sawfly, Syspastoxyelidae, has been reported hitherto. Expand
Effects of miniaturization in primary larvae of Strepsiptera (Insecta).
In this review the presently available morphological data on primary larvae of Strepsiptera are interpreted with respect to effects of miniaturization, but also their possible functional orExpand

The Phylogeny of the Extant Chelicerate Orders
TLDR
The phylogeny of the extant chelicerate orders is examined in the light of morphological and molecular evidence, with the placement of solifugids and the status of the pedipalps responsible for most disagreement fairly robust to variation in analysis parameters. Expand
The Strepsiptera problem: phylogeny of the holometabolous insect orders inferred from 18S and 28S ribosomal DNA sequences and morphology.
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships among the holometabolous insect orders were inferred from cladistic analysis of nucleotide sequences of 18S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) and 28S rDNA and morphological characters. Expand
A Concern for Evidence and a Phylogenetic Hypothesis of Relationships among Epicrates (Boidae, Serpentes)
TLDR
High levels of character congruence were observed among 89 biochemical and morphological synapomorphies scored on 10 species of Epicrates, and the consensus cladogram was consistent with the phylogenetic interpretation attached to the resulting hypothesis, which is a consensus of two equally parsimonious cladograms. Expand
Phylogeny of Insect Orders
TLDR
This review is devoted to a treatment of the phylogeny of extant orders of insects and their closest relatives and to the numerous new proposals made in a thought-provoking, recent book by Boudreaux (15). Expand
Phylogenetic position of the Strepsiptera: Review of molecular and morphological evidence
TLDR
Molecular and molecular data suggest that the Strepsiptera are sister group to the Diptera, and a single character (posteromotorism) suggests a sister group relationship with the Coleoptera. Expand
ARTHROPOD PHYLOGENY: A COMBINED APPROACH
TLDR
Ribosomal and ubiquitin protein coding sequence data are generated from 20 arthropods and five close relatives combined with morphological characters derived from the literature to approach arthropod phylogenetics from the perspective of total evidence. Expand
Cladistic relationships among higher groups of Heteroptera: congruence between morphological and molecular data sets
TLDR
The molecular evidence corroborates the morphologically based theory of a sister group relationship between Aradoidea and trichophoran Pentatomomorpha and indicates that the Homoptera are probably not monophyletic. Expand
Systematics of holometabolous insect orders based on 18S ribosomal RNA.
TLDR
Parsimony analyses resolved relationships in a few groups but left the most controversial questions regarding relationships among major lineages unresolved, and all analyses supported a clade with Lepidoptera and Trichoptera as sister taxa most closely related to Diptera. Expand
Long-branch distraction and the Strepsiptera.
TLDR
The Halteria appeared to be a well-supported monophyletic group, and the implications these results have on homeotic evolution in the phylogenetic analysis of Whiting and Wheeler (1994). Expand
Ribosomal DNA phylogeny of the major extant arthropod classes and the evolution of myriapods
TLDR
Using nuclear ribosomal gene sequences for constructing a molecular phylogeny, this work provides strong evidence that the crustaceans and not the myriapods should be considered to be the sister group of the insects. Expand
