I have been quite lax in providing updates and posts to the Stireman lab website. Hopefully, I will be able to devote time to it in the future. A number of publications have come out of the Stireman lab since I last posted two years ago. Most notable among them is A Molecular Phylogeny of World Tachinidae which was published online in early 2019 (Stiremanetal2019YMPEV6358.pdf), which was the culmination of a number of years’ work by me (Stireman), Jim O’Hara, Pierfilippo Cerretti, Kevin Moulton, and Jeremy Blaschke. I hope that others find this paper interesting and useful. It is by no means the “end of the story” regarding tachinid phylogeny, but it is a significant advancement that we hope will stimulate more research into understanding this evolution and diversification of this fascinating group. Abstract below.
