AN UPDATE ON THE PHYLOGENY OF GENERA OF PSYCHOMYIIDAE (TRICHOPTERA)
An updated phylogeny of family Psychomyiidae is presented based on 38 morphological characters. Trees were computed using branch-and-bound search, bootstrap values were calculated using 1000 replicates, and a consensus tree was inferred. The results support the monophyletic clade Psychomyiinae of Li & Morse, consisting of Paduniella, Metalype, Psychomyia, Psychomyia lumina, P. schefterae, and P. yangae. The latter five taxa also form a monophyletic group, sister to basal Paduniella, but the relationships among those five taxa remain unresolved. Results also supported the monophyly of Lype + Eoneureclipsis and Tinodes + Trawaspsyche. The relationships of these two monophyletic groups with each other, with Psychomyiinae, and with genus Padangpsyche remain unresolved, so that a monophyletic subfamily Tinodinae is not yet corroborated.
