The thoraces of males and flightless females of the geometrid winter moth Nyssiodes lefuarius are described, documented in detail, and compared. [...] Key Method Thoracic skeletomuscular characters are compiled and mapped, mainly using extensive information from the literature, but also including the new morphological data obtained from the male N. lefuarius. Important changes in the thoracic character system are linked with the rise of Coelolepida, Heteroneura, and Ditrysia. Only minor changes take place in…Expand
