Two Complete Mitochondrial Genomes From Leuctridae (Plecoptera: Nemouroidea): Implications for the Phylogenetic Relationships Among Stoneflies

This work reconstructed the phylogeny of Plecoptera based on 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs) from published stoneflies and showed that the Bayesian inference and maximum-likelihood tree had similar topological structures except for the positions of two families, Peltoperlidae and Scopuridae.

Family–level phylogeny of infraorder Systellognatha (Insecta: Plecoptera) inferred from mitochondrial genomes

This study shows the power of the site–heterogeneous models in resolving phylogeny within Systellognatha and provides a new insight into the phylogeny of this group.

Phylogenomics of the North American Plecoptera

This taxon sample includes representatives of all families, subfamilies and tribes of the North American fauna, providing the most complete molecular phylogenetic study of theNorth American Plecoptera to date.

Combining molecular datasets with strongly heterogeneous taxon coverage enlightens the peculiar biogeographic history of stoneflies (Insecta: Plecoptera)

This study provides the first conclusive evolutionary explanation for the unique distribution pattern of stoneflies and finds four major net diversification rate shifts, indicating rapid radiation patterns that hampered a robust phylogenetic placement of these stonefly groups.

Molecular phylogeny inferred from the mitochondrial genomes of Plecoptera with Oyamia nigribasis (Plecoptera: Perlidae)

Phylogenetic analyses using Bayesian inference and maximum likelihood were undertaken to determine relationships between stoneflies and indicated that the Antarctoperlaria, which contains Gripopterygidae, was absolutely separated from Arctoper laria; this finding agrees with morphology.

Comparative analysis of mitochondrial genomes among the family Peltoperlidae (Plecoptera: Systellognatha) and phylogenetic implications

The results show that gene content, gene order, DmTTF binding site, nucleotide composition, codon usage, ribonucleic acid (RNA) structure, and structural elements in the control region are highly conserved in peltoperlids, providing new insight into the phylogeny of this group.

Massive gene rearrangements of mitochondrial genomes and implications for the phylogeny of Trichoptera (Insecta)

This study assembles new mitogenomes for 66 species by high‐throughput sequencing and offers new insights into the mechanisms and patterns of mitogenome rearrangements in Insecta at large and into the usefulness ofMitogenomic gene order as a phylogenetic marker within Trichoptera.

Systematic revision and phylogeny of Paragripopteryx Enderlein, 1909 (Plecoptera: Gripopterygidae)

This study aims to revise Paragripopteryx and present the first morphology-based phylogeny for the genus and gathers relevant morphological information that can help to better understand this genus and create foundations for the next steps.

Insect phylogenomics: new insights on the relationships of lower neopteran orders (Polyneoptera)

These relationships based on a new transcriptome data matrix covering almost all polyneopteran orders, except for Mantophasmatodea, Grylloblattodea and Mantodea support a monophyletic Polyneoptera, corroborating previous findings and rejecting the paraphyletic lower neopteran group suggested by various morphological characters and rRNA gene analyses.

Ecdysozoan Mitogenomics: Evidence for a Common Origin of the Legged Invertebrates, the Panarthropoda

Phylogenetic analyses based on concatenated amino acid coding sequences support a monophyletic origin of the Ecdysozoa and the position of Priapulida as the sister group of a monophysletic Panarthropoda (Tardigrada plus Onychophora plus Arthropoda).

Phylogenetic placement of retropinnid fishes: data set incongruence can be reduced by using asymmetric character state transformation costs.

It is recommended that morphological systematists routinely implement a range of character transformation models to assess the sensitivity of their phylogenetic reconstructions, and it is proposed that a simple "equal transformation cost" parsimony analysis may be biologically unrealistic.

Higher-level phylogeny of paraneopteran insects inferred from mitochondrial genome sequences

Mitochondrial (mt) genome data have been proven to be informative for animal phylogenetic studies but may also suffer from systematic errors, due to the effects of accelerated substitution rate and

Molecular phylogeny of Polyneoptera (Insecta) inferred from expanded mitogenomic data

A phylogenetic reconstruction for this group of insects based on expanded mitochondrial genome data is presented, demonstrating that model selection, data treatment, and outgroup choice can have significant effects on the reconstructed phylogenetic relationships of Polyneoptera.
