Evolution and Diversification Dynamics of Butterflies

Abstract: Butterflies are a diverse and charismatic insect group that are thought to have diversified via coevolution with plants and in response to dispersals following key geological events. These hypotheses have been poorly tested at the macroevolutionary scale because a comprehensive phylogenetic framework and datasets on global distributions and larval hosts of butterflies are lacking. We sequenced 391 genes from nearly 2,000 butterfly species to construct a new, phylogenomic tree of butterflies representing 92% of… Show more

“…Subfamilial relationships were strongly supported (UFBoot and aLRT >95%) in general, but support for the position of Pseudopontiinae, which we recovered as the sister group to Pierinae, was low (UFBoot =75.2, SHaLRT = 77). This corroborates the results of Kawahara et al (24) and Espeland et al (41), based on 391 loci, but not of Chazot et al (42), which used 9 loci (Fig. 1).…”

“…This study provides a robust phylogenetic framework of pierid butterflies and a foundation for testing many macroevolutionary questions. We show, with strong support (UFBoot and SH- aLRT = 100), that Dismorphiinae are sister to a clade containing Coliadinae, Pseudopontiinae, and Pierinae, in agreement with Wahlberg et al (36) and Kawahara et al (24). All tribal relationships of Pierinae were strongly supported and differ from previous studies (24, 36, 42).…”
