Th e clariﬁ cation of the phylogenetic position of Diopsina nested deeply within Diopsini is of crucial importance for the under- standing of the relationships and the evolution of various morphological characters within the family. Keywords Stalk-eyed ﬂ ies , phylogeny , molecular data , Diopsina draconigena Introduction Diopsidae have received much research attention with respect to the extraordinary morphology and physiology of their elaborate stalked eyes (Burkhardt & de la Motte 1983 , 1985 , 1987 ; Buschbeck & Hoy 1998 , 2005 ; Hilger 1999 ).
