Kotrba, Marion, Balke, Michael and Carr, Martin (2010) The systematic position of Diopsina Curran, 1928 (Diptera: Diopsidae) inferred from DNA sequence data. Insect Systematicsand Evolution, 41 (3). pp. 295-302. ISSN 1399-560XMetadata only available from this repository.
The placement of Diopsina in a monophyletic clade with Diopsis and Eurydiopsis is confirmed and a sister group relationship between Diopsina and Diopsis recovered with moderate support. The clarification of the phylogenetic position of Diopsina nested deeply within Diopsini is of crucial importance for the understanding of the relationships and the evolution of various morphological characters within the family.
