Narayanan Kutty, Sujatha; Wong, Wing Hing; Meusemann, Karen; Meier, R.; Cranston, Peter


Culicomorpha is a particularly species‐rich clade within Diptera (true flies) that comprises c. 10% of the described diversity, including many medically important flies. Morphological studies – even when all life stages are included – yield relationships different from those derived from molecular data, notably with regard to the position of Chironomidae. Congruence amongst molecular studies has been weak due to limitations in gene‐ and family‐level taxon coverage. Here we use a...[Show more]
