The evolution of anopheline mosquitoes (Culicidae: Anophelinae) has been the subject of speculation and study for decades, but a comprehensive phylogeny of these insects is far from complete. The results of phylogenetic studies based on morphological and molecular data sets are conspicuously ambiguous. Here, we revisit the phylogenetic relationships of anopheline mosquitoes using state‐of‐the‐art software and cladistic methods to analyse the data set of Harbach & Kitching (2005). We present a… 
Phylogeny of the nominotypical subgenus of Culex (Diptera: Culicidae): insights from analyses of anatomical data into interspecific relationships and species groups in an unresolved tree
The aim of this study was to produce the first objective and comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of the speciose subgenus Culex based on morphological data. We used implied and equally weighted
First Description of the Mitogenome and Phylogeny of Culicinae Species from the Amazon Region
TLDR
The yielded topology supports the concept of monophyly of all groups and ratifies the current taxonomic classification of the Culicidae family.
Phylogeny of Anophelinae using mitochondrial protein coding genes
TLDR
These findings provided robust evidence for elevating the monophyletic groupings Kerteszia, Lophopodomyia, Nyssorhynchus and Stethomyia to genus level and genus Anopheles to include subgenera Anophele, Baimaia, Cellia and Christya.
Complete mitogenomes of Anopheles peditaeniatus and Anopheles nitidus and phylogenetic relationships within the genus Anopheles inferred from mitogenomes
TLDR
The study comprehensively uncovered the characteristics of mitogenome and the phylogenetics based onMitogenomes in the genus Anopheles, and provided information for further study on the mitogenomes, phylogenetics and taxonomic revision of the genus.
Identification keys to the Anopheles mosquitoes of South America (Diptera: Culicidae). I. Introduction
TLDR
This work presents introduction and three keys to aid the identification of South American Anopheles based on the morphology of the larvae, male genitalia and adult females, with the former two keys fully illustrated.
Genetic analysis and population structure of Anopheles gambiae complex (Diptera: Culicidae) from different ecological zones of Burkina Faso.
An Anopheles by Any Other Name …?

TLDR
Reasons for retaining the traditional concept of Anopheles, with its traditionally recognized subgenera, are presented, but the choice of rank of a genus-group name may be considered a subjective decision and a matter of user preference.
Complete mitochondrial genomes of Anopheles stephensi and An. dirus and comparative evolutionary mitochondriomics of 50 mosquitoes
TLDR
This is the first comprehensive study of mosquito mitogenomes, which are effective for mosquito phylogeny at various taxonomic levels and strongly support the monophyly of subgenera Cellia, Anopheles, Keterszia and Nyssorhynchus.
Molecular Characterization of Anopheles sacharovi Based on Sequences of ITS2-rDNA Region and COI Gene in North of Iran
TLDR
There was no evidence of the presence of this species in north and northwest of Iran and the ITS2 region and COI gene sequences for An.

Reconsideration of anopheline mosquito phylogeny (Diptera: Culicidae: Anophelinae) based on morphological data
TLDR
The phylogeny of anopheline mosquitoes (Culicidae: Anophelinae) is re‐examined using morphological data derived from adults, fourth‐instar larvae and pupae to assess objectively the phylogenetic relationships and classification of two taxa not included by Sallum et al. (2000).
Phylogeny of the Pyretophorus Series of Anopheles subgenus Cellia (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
A cladistic analysis based on morphological characters for the Pyretophorus Series of subgenus Cellia of Anopheles suggests that the capacity to transmit malaria is an ancestral condition subsequently lost independently in several lineages.
Analysis of the phylogenetic relationship of Anopheles species, subgenus Cellia (Diptera: Culicidae) and using it to define the relationship of morphologically similar species.
Phylogenetic analysis of the subgenus Kerteszia of Anopheles (Diptera: Culicidae: Anophelinae) based on morphological characters
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis was carried out for 12 species of Anopheles (Kerteszia) Theobald with AnopheLES (Nyssorhynchus) oswaldoi (Peryassu), An. (Stethomyia) kompi Edwards and An.(Lophopodomyia).
Toward understanding Anophelinae (Diptera, Culicidae) phylogeny: insights from nuclear single-copy genes and the weight of evidence.
TLDR
The present data and other available evidence suggest a South American origin of Anophelinae, probably in the Mesozoic; a rapid diversification of Bironella and basal subgeneric lineages of Anopheles, potentially associated with the breakup of Gondwanaland; and a relatively recent and rapid dispersion of subgenus Anophele.
Phylogeny and classification of tribe Aedini (Diptera: Culicidae)
The phylogeny and classification of tribe Aedini are delineated based on a cladistic analysis of 336 characters from eggs, fourth-instar larvae, pupae, adult females and males, and immature stage
Phylogenetic analysis and temporal diversification of mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) based on nuclear genes and morphology
TLDR
The results support the notion of rapid radiations early in the diversification of mosquitoes, and suggest the need for additional taxonomic sampling.
Evolution and systematics of Anopheles: insights from a molecular phylogeny of Australasian mosquitoes.
TLDR
The COII gene shows promise for questions concerning alpha taxonomy but appears to be of limited use for resolving deeper relationships within the Anopheles, according to a cladistic analysis of sequence variation within the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit II gene.
Phylogeny of the Leucosphyrus Group of Anopheles (Cellia) (Diptera: Culicidae) Based on Mitochondrial Gene Sequences
Abstract We evaluated fragments of the mitochondrial COI and ND6 genes to explore phylogenetic relationships among 13 of the 20 species of the Leucosphyrus Group of Anopheles (Cellia) (Diptera:
Phylogeny and classification of the Culicidae (Diptera)
TLDR
The results indicate that Aedini is a paraphyletic assemblage with respect to the Mansoniini, each of which is monophyletic in itself, and supports the monophyly of the subfamily Anophelinae and the tribes Culicini and Sabethini.
