Phylogeny of Oestridae (Insecta: Diptera)

The phylogeny of Oestridae was analysed at the generic level using 118 characters from all developmental stages and including morphology, ontogeny, physiology and behaviour. Four major clades were


The larval oestrid Cephalopina titillator (Clark) is recorded for the first time in the scientific literature as a parasite of camels in Australia. Two of the 4 subfamilies of Oestridae recognised by

Molecular phylogeny of the Calyptratae (Diptera: Cyclorrhapha) with an emphasis on the superfamily Oestroidea and the position of Mystacinobiidae and McAlpine's fly

A higher‐level phylogenetic hypothesis is proposed for the Calyptratae based on an extensive DNA sequence dataset for 11 noncalyptrate outgroups and 247 calyptrate species representing all commonly accepted families in the Oestroidea and Hippoboscoidea, as well as those of the muscoid grade.

The man who loved flies: a biographical profile of Nelson Papavero .

A biography of Nelson Papavero is presented, along with several personal anecdotes, and his role in the development of Brazilian biological systematics over the last 50 years is presented.

Systematic relations among Philornis Meinert, Passeromyia Rodhain & Villeneuve and allied genera (Diptera, Muscidae).

An overview of the classification of the Muscidae based on cladistic methodology is given and Phylogenetic patterns within Reinwardtinae and Dichaetomyiinae could be explained by a Gondwana distribution.

flavipes (Oestridae: Gasterophilinae): A horse stomach bot fly brought back from oblivion with morphological and molecular evidence

This study shows that morphological characters still provide the solid backbone in classification of Gasterophilus at species-level, and updated diagnoses and a key is provided to distinguish G .


The present paper describes the aggregation of males of Turbopsebius sulphuripes (Loews), and the presence of two others, Acrocera melanderi Cole and Pterodontia flavipes Gray, on a hilltop in southwestern Quebec.

Taxonomy, phylogeny and evolution of the bumblebee bot flies (Oestridae: Hypodermatinae: Portschinskia)

It is suggested that colour patterns of Portschinskia can be explained as Batesian mimicry tracking locally dominant bumblebees, and a regional correlation in species diversity and colour patterns can be detected between sympatric PortsChinskia and Bombus species.

Taxonomic review of Gasterophilus (Oestridae, Gasterophilinae) of the world, with updated nomenclature, keys, biological notes, and distributions

The genus Gasterophilus is shown to have its highest species richness in China and South Africa, with seven species recorded, followed by Mongolia, Senegal, and Ukraine, with six species recorded.

The Reindeer Oestrids Hypoderma tarandi and Cephenemyia trompe (Diptera: Oestridae): Batesian Mimics of Bumblebees (Hymenoptera: Apidae: Bombus spp.)?

The color pattern in two reindeer oestrids, Hypoderma tarandi and Cephenemyia trompe, was analyzed and compared with that of different bumblebee species found in an oestrid study area in northern Norway.
