  • Title
    Emerging trends in molecular systematics and molecular phylogeny of mayflies (Insecta: Ephemeroptera)
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Current trends are reviewed in the molecular systematics and phylogeny of the Ephemeroptera (mayflies), an ancient monophyletic lineage of pterygote insects. Theories of mayfly origins are analyzed, followed by a discussion of higher classification schemes in light of recent developments in molecular systematics. Ephemeroptera evolution is a classic example of ancient rapid radiation, presenting challenges for phylogenetic analysis. The utility of combined studies of morphological and molecular data is substantiated with examples and the role of molecular systematics in unraveling the taxonomy of cryptic species complexes is highlighted. The importance of DNA barcoding in mayfly taxonomy is discussed in the light of recent progress, and future contributions of genetics to the study of taxonomy, ecology and evolution in mayflies are discussed.

    Life cycle studies of Heptageniidae (Insecta: Ephemeroptera) in Kumbbakarai Stream of Western Ghats,Tamil Nadu, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Life cycle studies of Epeorus sp., Afronurus kumbbakkaraiensis and Thalerosphyrus flowersi of the family Heptageniidae were conducted in the Kumbbakarai stream of Western Ghats, southern India. Epeorus sp. may have more than one univoltine brood since part of the eggs hatch in northeast monsoon period and the rest in the following summer. Life cycle of Afronurus kumbbakkaraiensis and Thalerosphyrus flowersi is basically multivoltine with asynchronous, overlapping genera. However, this study reveals the possible influence of summer in numerical reduction of Afronurus kumbbakkaraiensis and Thalerosphyrus flowersi.
