    Royal Museum for Central Africa, Tervuren, Belgium
    Mol Ecol 22:2526-39. 2013
    ..These results suggest important revisions to current models of ecological niche requirements and invasion risk of the major agricultural pest C. rosa and provide a basis for a taxonomic re-interpretation of the FAR complex...

    Royal Museum for Central Africa, Leuvensesteenweg 13, B 3080 Tervuren, Belgium
    Mol Ecol 19:2713-24. 2010
    ..These results could provide a useful background to better evaluate invasion risks and establish priorities for the management of this cosmopolitan agricultural pest...

    M Virgilio
    Royal Museum for Central Africa, African Zoology Section Entomology, Tervuren, Belgium
    Mol Phylogenet Evol 51:531-9. 2009
    ..These results show a clear association between the molecular phylogeny of African Dacus and the evolution of host plant choice and provide a basis towards a more congruent taxonomy of this genus...

    M Virgilio
    Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences, Brussels, Belgium
    Mol Ecol 18:1980-94. 2009
    ..Hence, the current patterns of genetic structuring of H. diversicolor appear as the result of allopatric isolation, multiple colonization events and possible adaptation to local environmental conditions...

    M Virgilio
    Royal Museum for Central Africa, Leuvensesteenweg 13, 3080 Tervuren, Belgium
    Mol Phylogenet Evol 48:270-80. 2008
    ..The current molecular data do not allow to identify C. fasciventris, C. anonae and C. rosa as distinct phylogenetic species but rather suggest that the morphospecies C. fasciventris is itself a complex of cryptic taxa...
