Morphology Matrix

I am currently collaborating with Dr. Michel Sartori, Dr. Arnold Staniczek, Dr. Thomas Soldan, and Jean-Luc Gattolliat, who are creating a morphology matrix across all families. We recognize that this will be a difficult task, however, we believe that it is also a crucial part in understanding mayfly phylogeny and evolution. Please contact me if you would like to participate in this endeavor at:

Here is a preliminary list of the taxa we are trying to code. The morphology data will be combined with the molecular data in order to infer phylogentic relationships.

As coded characters, at the family level, are sent to me I will post them here in matrix format.
