Molecular phylogeny of the Mediterranean species of Philaenus (Hemiptera: Auchenorrhyncha: Aphrophoridae) using mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences
The phylogenies of all eight European species of Philaenus were estimated from cytochrome oxidase subunit I, cytochrome B and internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) fragments of DNA using phylogeneticExpand

A review of karyotype variation in jumping plant-lice (Psylloidea, Sternorrhyncha, Hemiptera) and checklist of chromosome numbers.
Karyotype variation in Psylloidea (Hemiptera) was analysed. Chromosome numbers and type of chromosome sex determination of 153 species belonging to 51 genera and five out of six families (exceptExpand

Mediterranean Species of the Spittlebug Genus Philaenus: Modes of Chromosome Evolution
Abstract The evolution of karyotypes and sex determination system of Philaenus Stål (Auchenorrhyncha: Aphrophoridae) species is studied here in detail. The most plausible scenario of chromosomalExpand

Genetic diversity of Philaenus spumarius and P. tesselatus (Hemiptera, Aphrophoridae): implications for evolution and taxonomy
The meadow spittlebugs Philaenus spumarius and P. tesselatus are closely related taxa with uncertain taxonomic position in the light of previous morphological, ecological, cytological and molecularExpand

Holocentric chromosomes in meiosis. I. Restriction of the number of chiasmata in bivalents
The number of chiasmata in bivalents and the behaviour of chiasmata during the meiotic divisions were studied in Psylla foersteri (Psylloidea, Homoptera). Two chiasmata with a frequency of 97% andExpand

A new approach to the auchenorrhyncha (Hemiptera, Insecta) cytogenetics: chromosomes of the meadow spittlebug Philaenus spumarius (L.) examined using various chromosome banding techniques.
The karyotype of the meadow spittlebug Philaenus spumarius (L.) was studied using conventional chromosome staining, C- and AgNOR- banding, and fluorescent CMA3- and DAPI- techniques. This is theExpand

The Origin of the Achiasmatic XY Sex Chromosome System in Cacopsylla peregrina (Frst.) (Psylloidea, Homoptera)
The status of an extra univalent, if it is a B chromosome or an achiasmatic Y chromosome, associating with the X chromosome in male meiosis of Cacopsylla peregrina (Frst.) (Homoptera, Psylloidea) wasExpand

Achiasmate Segregation of a B Chromosome from the X Chromosome in Two Species of Psyllids (Psylloidea, Homoptera)
The segregation of a B chromosome from the X chromosome was studied in male meiosis in two psyllid species, Rhinocola aceris (L.) and Psylla foersteri (Flor.) (Psylloidea, Homoptera). The frequencyExpand

Cytogenetic analysis of Otiorhynchus bisulcatus (Fabricius, 1781) and O.(Zadrehus) atroapterus (De Geer, 1775) (Coleoptera, Curculionidae, Entiminae) using C bands, NORs, and DAPI/CMA3 staining.
The structure of the karyotypes of two Otiorhynchus species belonging to separate subgenera, viz. Otiorhynchus s.str. bisulcatus and O. (Zadrehus) atroapterus, is compared and described for the firstExpand

Relations of Wolbachia Infection with Phylogeography of Philaenus spumarius (Hemiptera: Aphrophoridae) Populations Within and Beyond the Carpathian Contact Zone
Wolbachia is the most widespread intracellular α-proteobacteria maternally inherited endosymbiont of insects and nematodes. These bacteria are associated with a number of different reproductiveExpand
