Monday Night Mystery: Fill in the Phylogenetic Blanks

Your challenge tonight is straight from introductory insect systematics. Here is a phylogenetic tree I have, at great time and personal expense, prepared for you:

Tree of mysteries

For five points each, which of the mystery insects below is most likely to belong to the tips marked “?” and “??“?





Points will be awarded only for the first correct guess for each mystery insect. The cumulative points winner for the month of December will win their choice of:

1) A guest post here on Myrmecos
2) Any 8×10 print from my insect photography galleries
3) A myrmecos t-shirt

Good luck!
