Many taxonomic groups recognized previously within Diptera are now known to be paraphyletic evolutionary grades. Throughout this paper, these terms have been retained to allow ready comparison with older literature and are designated by being placed in quotation marks.

Three additional dipteran mitochondrial genomes have become available recently on GenBank – Dermatobia hominis (Oestridae), Haematobia irritans (Muscidae) and Aedes albopictus (Culicidae) – but have not yet been published. We have not included these sequences so as not to pre-empt other workers. Further, as close relatives of each have already been published, their inclusion is not critical to this study.
A secondary structure model for the mt rRNA genes of Apis will be published shortly (Gillespie et al., 2006), and its application to other insect groups will no doubt greatly improve the alignments of insect mt rRNA genes for phylogenetic studies.
