Phylogenetic Relationships of the Australian Leptophlebiidae

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the phylogenetic relationships of the Leptophlebiidae family of mayflies in Australia. It explains some of the previously unknown relationships among the Australian fauna and suggests that the currently recognized genera of Leptophlebiidae in Australia require further definition. Comparison with hypotheses previously proposed for Australian Leptophlebiidae demonstrate partial agreement, recognizing Meridialaris and Atalonella clades and support for a sister relationship between the burrowing genera Jappa and Ulmerophlebia.

Keywords: Leptophlebiidae; mayflies; Australia; phylogenetic relationships; Meridialaris; Atalonella; Jappa; Ulmerophlebia
