Abstract. The first southern hemisphere representative of the otherwise exclusively northern hemisphere incurvarioid family Prodoxidae, Prodoxoides asymmetra gen.n., sp.n., is described from southern Argentina and Chile. The new taxon is diurnal and crepuscular and is found in temperate rain forests. Its host plant is unknown but is assumed to be a Myrtaceae. The monophyly of the superfamily Incurvarioidea is discussed. The monophyly of each of the six recognized families (Heliozelidae… Expand
Phylotranscriptomics resolves phylogeny of the Heliozelidae (Adeloidea: Lepidoptera) and suggests a Late Cretaceous origin in Australia
TLDR
An ancestral biogeographical range hypothesis of the family is proposed, based on a combination of transcriptome data and a previous multigene study including over 100 species, suggesting that Heliozelidae are likely to have originated in the Australian region, with subsequent range expansions to the rest of the world. Expand
A preliminary molecular phylogeny of shield-bearer moths (Lepidoptera: Adeloidea: Heliozelidae) highlights rich undescribed diversity.
TLDR
A rich and undescribed diversity that appears to be especially prevalent in Australia is uncovered, highlighting the need for a major taxonomic revision of the family and for generating a robust molecular phylogeny using multi-gene approaches in order to resolve the relationships among clades. Expand
The recently discovered primitive (non-Ditrysian) family Palaephatidae (Lepidoptera) in Australia
TLDR
It is concluded that Azaleodes is not the sister-group of the remaining, South American Palaephatidae but is monophyletic with Sesommata Davis and Metaphatus Davis. Expand
Evolution of heteroneuran Lepidoptera (Insecta) and the utility of dopa decarboxylase for Cretaceous-age phylogenetics
TLDR
DDC trees within the primitive heteroneuran superfamily Incurvarioidea, though modestly supported, closely resemble a previous morphological hypothesis, while removing the requirement for reversal in a possible «key adaptation», the larval case. Expand
Andesianidae, a new family of monotrysian moths (Lepidoptera : Andesianoidea) from austral South America
TLDR
The new family Andesianidae is proposed for the genus Andesiana, consisting of three previously described species, A. lamellata Gentili and A. similis Gentili, from southern Argentina and Chile and the new superfamily, Andesianoidea, is proposed. Expand
Description of the New Zealand incurvarioid Xanadoses nielseni, gen. nov., sp. nov. and placement in Cecidosidae (Lepidoptera)
Xanadoses nielseni, gen. nov., sp. nov. is described from New Zealand, where it is the only native member of the superfamily Incurvarioidea. The larva is a bark-miner, making long tortuous galleriesExpand
A molecular phylogeny for the oldest (nonditrysian) lineages of extant Lepidoptera, with implications for classification, comparative morphology and life‐history evolution
TLDR
The goal of this paper is to test previous hypotheses of nonditrysian phylogeny against a data set consisting of 61 nond itrysian species plus 20 representative Ditrysia and eight outgroups (Trichoptera), nearly all sequenced for 19 nuclear genes (up to 14 700 bp total). Expand

We characterized evolutionary patterns of host plant use across about 2500 species of British Lepidoptera, using character optimization and independent phylogenetic contrasts among 95 operationalExpand
Phylogenomic reconstruction of transcriptome data confirms the basal position of Prodoxidae moths within the order Lepidoptera
Yucca moths (Prodoxidae) have long been considered by taxonomists to be basally positioned within the Lepidoptera in the superfamily Adeloidea. Recently, phylogenomic reconstructions of ordinalExpand
A panbiogeographic perspective for pre-cretaceous angiosperm–Lepidoptera coevolution
TLDR
A 'coevolutionary' history is supported in terms of Lepidoptera and angiosperms sharing common biogeographic characters associated with the pre-Cretaceous tectonic history of major ocean and sea basins. Expand
