Fossil Sciaroidea (Diptera) in Cretaceous Ambers, Exclusive of Cecidomyiidae, Sciaridae, and Keroplatidae

The Cretaceous is essential for understanding the origins and diversification of Recent families, and the Burmese amber fauna contains an inordinate abundance and diversity of sciaroids, perhaps because of a wetter paleoclimate in that region.

Molecular phylogeny of the fungus gnat tribe Exechiini (Mycetophilidae, Diptera)

Bayesian, maximum parsimony and maximum likelihood analyses revealed basically congruent tree topologies and the monophyly of Exechiini, including the genus Cordyla, is confirmed and the molecular data corroborate previous morphological studies in several aspects.

Changes to the Fossil Record of Insects through Fifteen Years of Discovery

The first and last occurrences of hexapod families in the fossil record are compiled from publications up to end-2009, and changes suggest that some inferences about causal mechanisms in insect macroevolution are likely to differ as well.
