Phylogeny and evolution of mycophagy in the Zygothrica genus group (Diptera: Drosophilidae)
Despite numerous phylogenetic studies on the family Drosophilidae, relationships among some important lineages are still poorly resolved. An example is the equivocal position of the Zygothrica genus group that is mostly comprised of the mycophagous genera Hirtodrosophila, Mycodrosophila, Paramycodrosophila, and Zygothrica. To fill this gap, we conducted a phylogenetic analysis by assembling a dataset of 24 genes from 92 species, including 42 species of the Zygothrica genus group mainly from the Palearctic and Oriental regions. The resulting tree shows that……
