Styphelieae

Coast beard-heath Cyathodes parviflora, copyright Stephen Bain.


Belongs within: Styphelioideae.

The Styphelieae are a group of ericaceous shrubs with fleshy fruits.

Characters (from Kron et al. 2002): Shrubs. Leaves alternate, entire, with leaf base narrow and one to several longitudinal veins having abaxial fiber cap that contacts abaxial epidermis. Flowers in terminal or reduced axillary racemes; bracts several grading upward in size, or one, mostly small and persistent, sometimes leaflike and caducous; bracteoles 2. Flowers 5-merous. Calyx lobes ciliate, persistent; corolla sympetalous, cylindrical, the lobes straight, spreading or recurved, mostly valvate in bud, occasionally imbricate. Stamens 5, epipetalous; anthers monothecal, with or without appendages. Pollen in monads, sometimes in tetrads or shed as reduced tetrads with one or more cells aborting. Ovary 2–11-locular, each with single ovule, placentation apical, style not impressed. Fruit drupaceous and brightly coloured, sometimes splitting to release endocarp, with sometimes splits into separate pyrenes.

Calyptratae

Lesser house fly Fannia canicularis, copyright Rui Andrade.


Belongs within: Schizophora.
Contains: Glossina, Hippoboscidae, Muscidae, Anthomyiidae, Oestroidea.

The Calyptratae include houseflies, blowflies and related taxa. The clade is named for the enlarged lower calypter on the wing, and members of the calyptrates are mostly very acrobatic fliers; however, some sublineages do lack a large calypter, and a more reliable synapomorphy of the group may be the presence of labellar pseudotracheae forming distinctive prestomal teeth on the proboscis (Kutty et al. 2010). A number of calyptrate families are parasitic either as adults or larvae; the members of one of the main clades of calyptrates, the Hippoboscoidea, are all ectoparasites and/or blood-feeders on vertebrates. Females of this group retain their larvae within the body to an advanced stage of development, feeding them by means of internal 'milk glands', and only deposit their offspring when the latter is ready to pupate.

The remaining calyptrates have generally been divided between the superfamilies Muscoidea and Oestroidea, but molecular phylogenetic analyses confirm that the former forms a paraphyletic grade to the latter (Kutty et al. 2010). They include the Fanniidae, a group of medium-sized to small, usually darkly coloured flies previously classified in the Muscidae but distinguished by having the subcostal vein diverging from vein R1 at a point near its base, and having a middorsal bristle on the hind tibia (Savage 2010).

Synapomorphies (from Grimaldi & Engel 2005): Large, flaplike lower calypter present at base of wing; prestomal teeth present on labellum.

Histeridae

Saprinus aeneus, copyright K. V. Makarov.


Belongs within: Staphyliniformia.
Contains: Chlamydopsis.

The Histeridae are a group of carnivorous beetles that are diverse in appearance but have a generally compact body form, deeply inserted head and compactly clubbed antennae (Lawrence & Britton 1991). Species in the subfamilies Haeteriinae and Chlamydopsinae are inquilines of social insects such as ants and termites, producing glandular secretions that attract and appease their hosts (Bouchard 2014).

Characters (from Lawrence & Britton 1991): Adult with compact body form, length 1–16 mm; head deeply inserted; antenna 8–11-segmented, almost always geniculate, with compact, pilose, one- or three-segmented club; fore coxae large, transverse, fore trochantin concealed, fore coxal cavity open; fore tibiae dentate; elytra with six or fewer striae, truncate, exposing one or two abdominal segments; middle coxal cavities very widely separated, open laterally; tarsal formula 5-5-5 or 5-5-4; abdomen with five ventrites, none connate. Larva with head prognathous; one or no stemmata; antenna three-segmented; frontoclypeal suture absent; labrum fused; mandibular mola absent; ventral mouth-parts prognathous; penicillus of hairs present at base of each mandible; maxilla without lobes; maxillary palp four- or five-segmented; labial palp two- or three-segmented; hypopharyngeal sclerome absent; hypostomal rods absent; ventral epicranial ridges absent; legs five-segmented; two or no tarsungular setae; urogomphi almost always two-segmented; abdominal spiracles biforous.

Scanning electron micrograph of colony of Fibrobacter succinogenes, from here.


Contains: Neobacteria, Protoarchaea, Eukaryota, Crenarchaeota, Reitlingerellidae, Fusobacteria, Deltaproteobacteria, Alphaproteobacteria, Chromatibacteria, Geovibriales, Clostridea, Actinobacteria, Deinococci, Cyanobacteria, Chlorobacteria, Togobacteria, Bacteroidetes, Chlorobi, Planctobacteria, Spirochaetes, Epsilonproteobacteria.

The total group of living organisms can be divided for convenience between eukaryotes, in which the greater part of the cell's genetic material is contained within a nuclear membrane, and the prokaryotes which lack a distinct nucleus. It is generally agreed that the prokaryotes are paraphyletic with regard to the monophyletic eukaryotes.
