Contributions to a History of Mexican Dipterology,- Part 1. Entomologists and their works before the Biologia Centrali-Americana
The life and works of entomologists who described species of Diptera from Mexico before the publication of the Biologia Centrali-Americana are presented, including some commentaries about the
Phylogenetic revision of the Taenogera Kröber genus-group (Diptera: Therevidae), with descriptions of two new genera
The phylogenetic relationships of the Taenogera genus-group, consisting of nine genera, are examined using cladistic methods and new genera are described and figured, supporting the removal of Nanexila gracilis (Mann) comb.
A Contribution to the Diptera fauna with some new remarkable records of the species
This study has added new Diptera records which will provide the basis for future works on Diptera, and suggests that many more species will be revealed in the country, if new provinces and localities are investigated with the use of mass trapping methods.
This catalogue presents the Colombian fauna of stiletto flies (Diptera: Therevidae), with only four species registered to this country.
The phylogeny of stiletto flies (Diptera: Therevidae)
The results strongly support the sister‐group relationship between Therevidae and Scenopinidae, with Apsilocephalidae as sister to Evocoidae, and Agapophytinae are recovered as monophyletic, inclusive of the Taenogera group.
Phylogeny, divergence times and biogeography of window flies (Scenopinidae) and the therevoid clade (Diptera: Asiloidea)
The ‘therevoid’ clade, with an emphasis on window flies (Scenopinidae), is presented by combining DNA sequence data with morphological characters for living and fossil species, and results from combined analyses of morphological and molecular data for 78 taxa representing all families of the therevoid clade are presented.
An annotated catalogue of the New World Therevidae (Insecta: Diptera: Asiloidea).
The genera and species of New World stiletto flies (Diptera: Therevidae) are listed, with annotated references to nomenclature, synonymies and generic combinations, type localities, the primary type
Case 3605 phycinae Lyneborg, 1976 (Insecta, Diptera, therevidae): proposed emendation of spelling to phycusinae to remove homonymy with phycinae Swainson, 1838 (Osteichthyes, Gadiformes, phycidae); and Phycis Walbaum, 1792 (Osteichthyes, Gadiformes, phycidae): proposed conservation of usage by desig
It is proposed that the stem of the genus-group name Phycus Walker, 1850, on which the insect family- group name is based, be emended to change the family-groups name to phycusinae, leaving the fish family-groupname, based on Phycis Walbaum, 1792, unaltered.
A New Species of Xestomyza Wiedemann, 1820 from South Africa, with a Key to the Genera of Xestomyzinae (Diptera: Therevidae)
ABSTRACT A new species, Xestomyza stuckenbergi sp. n., is described from the Western Cape Province, South Africa. The new species differs from the only previously described species of this genus,
Revision of the Chinese species of Dialineura Rondani, 1856 (Diptera, Therevidae, Therevinae)
The genus Dialineura Rondani is reviewed from China and a key to all the male species in the world and a biogeography map of China are presented.
