This study represents the first formal morphological and combined (morphological and molecular) phylogenetic analyses of the order Ephemeroptera. Taxonomic sampling comprised 112 species in 107 genera, including 42 recognized families (all major lineages of Ephemeroptera). Morphological data consisted of 101 morphological characters. Molecular data were acquired from DNA sequences of the 12S, 16S, 18S, 28S and H3 genes. The Asian genus Siphluriscus (Siphluriscidae) was supported as sister to… 
Systematics and phylogeny of the West Palaearctic representatives of subfamily Baetinae (Insecta: Ephemeroptera): combined analysis of mitochondrial DNA sequences and morphology
TLDR
This study represents the first formal combined (morphological and molecular) phylogenetic analysis of the highly diversified subfamily Baetinae and found that Baetis rhodani and Alainites muticus exhibited unusually high values of intraspecific variability pointing to the possible existence of cryptic species.
A cladistic insight into the higher level classification of Baetidae (Insecta: Ephemeroptera)
TLDR
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the phylogenetic relationships of the family Baetidae using morphological evidence and evaluate two competing proposals of family division: Cloeoninae and Baetinae, or Protopatellata and Anteropatellata, and find subimaginal and imaginal characters presented the lowest homoplastic values and were the best to understand the higher relationships.
Global classification and evolution of brushlegged mayflies (Insecta: Ephemeroptera: Oligoneuriidae): phylogenetic analyses of morphological and molecular data and dated historical biogeography
TLDR
Oligoneuriidae originated ~150 Mya in the Gondwanan supercontinent, but was probably restricted to the currently delimited Neotropical region, and started its diversification at ~118 Mya, reaching the Nearctic through dispersal from the Neotropic region and the Palaearctic and Madagascar from the Afrotropical region.
Phylogenetic analyses of Cloeodes Traver and related genera (Ephemeroptera: Baetidae)
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis using morphological characters (continuous and discrete) was performed in order to address the monophyly of the genus Cloeode within the Cloeodes complex of genera and it is concluded thatCloeodes and the complex are paraphyletic.
Three mitochondrial genomes of early-winged insects (Ephemeroptera: Baetidae and Leptophlebiidae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic reconstructions using 21 mayfly mtgenomes and representatives of seven additional orders recovered both Baetidae and Leptophlebiidae as well supported monophyletic clades, with Ephemeroptera as the sister-taxon to all other winged insects (i.e. Odonata and Neoptera).
Molecular phylogeny and morphological analysis resolve a long‐standing controversy over generic concepts in Ecdyonurinae mayflies (Ephemeroptera: Heptageniidae)
TLDR
A thorough morphological study of all life stages of 28 representative heptageniid species with a molecular phylogenetic analysis of four mitochondrial and nuclear markers concludes that the monophyly of Afronurus and Electrogena is confirmed and the assignment of A. zebratus to a newly described genus is supported.
Cladistic analysis of the family Baetidae (Insecta: Ephemeroptera) in South America
TLDR
Although the monophyly of the family Baetidae was obtained with good support, the subfamilies proposed originally were recovered as paraphyletic and the Baetodes complex, as well as the relationships between genera, is discussed.
Cladistic analysis of the family Baetidae (Insecta: Ephemeroptera) in South America
TLDR
The present study, the first cladistic analysis of Baetidae in South America, included 70 species (55 are Neotropical) and 126 morphological characters and the monophyly of the family was obtained with good support, but the subfamilies proposed originally were recovered as paraphyletic.
Increasing 28 mitogenomes of Ephemeroptera, Odonata and Plecoptera support the Chiastomyaria hypothesis with three different outgroup combinations
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis strongly supported the Chiastomyaria hypothesis in three different outgroup combinations in BI analyses, and shows that suitable outgroups are very important to determining phylogenetic relationships in the rapid evolution of insects especially among Ephemeroptera and Odonata.

This study represents the first combined molecular and morphological analysis for the mayfly family Ephemerellidae (Ephemeroptera), with a focus on the relationships of genera and species groups of
Tests of Current Hypotheses of Mayfly (Ephemeroptera) Phylogeny Using Molecular (18s rDNA) Data
TLDR
The molecular data support the hypothesis that Pisciforma and Setisura comprise a monophyletic sister group to the Furcatergalia, rather than the hypothesis That SetisURA and Furc Catergalia comprise aMonophyletics group stemming from the PISCiforma.

TLDR
Fossil taxa did not seem to provide signals crucial to recovering a robust phylogeny, but were critical to understanding the evolution of key morphological features associated with flight.
Phylogeny of earwigs (Insecta: Dermaptera) based on molecular and morphological evidence: reconsidering the classification of Dermaptera
TLDR
Results indicate that the epizoic Hemimerus is not sister to the remaining Dermaptera, but rather nested as sister to Forficulidae + Chelisochidae, and support the paraphyly of Pygidicranidae and Spongiphoridae and the monophyly of Chelisoch Families, ForfICulidae, Anisolabididae and Labiduridae.
Combined molecular and morphological evidence on the phylogeny of the earliest lepidopteran lineages
TLDR
Combination of the 18S rDNA data with published morphological ground‐plan scorings improves overall support for the morphology‐based hypothesis for basal glossatans, but phylogenetic resolution among published alternatives for the basal Heteroneura remains a major question for lepidopteran systematics.
The Palaeoptera Problem: Basal Pterygote Phylogeny Inferred from 18S and 28S rDNA Sequences
TLDR
New sequences from Odonata, Ephemeroptera and Neoptera, in combination with sequences from GenBank, have been used in a parsimony jackknife analysis resulting in strong support for a monophyletic Palaeoptera.

TLDR
An adequate review of the major traditional hypotheses concerning higher level classiÞcation and relationships among maysies is provided, but these authors failed to report previously published molecular hypotheses that shed light on maysy phylogeny.

Phylogenetic analyses of DNA sequence data support a paraphyletic Mecoptera with two major lineages: Nannochoristidae + (Siphonaptera + Boreidae) and Meropidae + ((Choristollaidea + Apteropanorpidae) (Panorpidae + Bittacidae))).
