1. Gierek, Stephanie. A Phylogeny of Genera Spirobolomyia and Blaesoxipha (Diptera:Sarcophagidae).

Degree: MS, Arts and Sciences: Biological Sciences, 2018, University of Cincinnati

Blaesoxipha and Spirobolomyia are two genera from the large family Sarcophagidae, more commonly known as flesh flies. These two genera are parasitoids to a wide variety of other arthropods. When Spirobolomyia was first described by Townsend in 1917, it was a new genus with only one species. In 1965, Downes synonymized Spirobolomyia with Blaesoxipha, giving it subgeneric status, and included 3 new species. In 1996, Pape added another species and removed Spirobolomyia from Blaesoxipha returning it to genus status. In this study, I infer a phylogeny using the cytochrome oxidase I (COI) and NADH dehydrogenase (ND4) genes from the fly’s mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) in hopes of determining if Spirobolomyia should remain a genus or be reduced to subgeneric status under Blaesoxipha. The phylogeny infers strong support for monophly of Spirobolomyia. However due to the nolow support of monophlyly from the Maximum Likelihood analysis but support from the Bayesian Inference, of the monophyly of Blaesoxipha, more data is needed to determine the placement of Spirobolomyia.
