Intergeneric relationships of selected tribes of the subfamily Psychodinae (Diptera, Psychodidae)
Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 41: 255-259, 1983
Abstract: Intergeneric relationships of 24 genera of the tribes Mormiini Enderlein, 1936,
Paramormiini Ernderlein, 1936 and Psychodini Enderlein, 1936 are demonstrated
on the plesiomorphic and apomorphic characters. The directions of the
development of particular characters are marked and a trial tree of the
phylogenetic relationships of all studied genera is given.
Key words: Psychodidae, Diptera, phylogeny, morphology, synapomorphy
