Phylogenomics resolves the timing and pattern of insect evolution
Toward an insect evolution resolution Insects are the most diverse group of animals, with the largest number of species. However, many of the evolutionary relationships between insect species haveExpand

†Alienoptera — A new insect order in the roach–mantodean twilight zone
Abstract A new insect species († Alienopterus brachyelytrus Bai, Beutel, Klass, Wipfler et Zhang gen. et sp. nov. ) of a new order and family is described, based on a single male embedded inExpand

Evolutionary history of Polyneoptera and its implications for our understanding of early winged insects
Significance Polyneoptera is the only major lineage of winged insects (Pterygota) with an unresolved evolutionary history concerning important phenotypic traits like external shape, social behavior,Expand

Phylogenomics and the evolution of hemipteroid insects
Significance Hemipteroid insects constitute a major fraction of insect diversity, comprising three orders and over 120,000 described species. We used a comprehensive sample of the diversity of thisExpand

On the head morphology of Grylloblattodea (Insecta) and the systematic position of the order, with a new nomenclature for the head muscles of Dicondylia
External and internal head structures of adults of Galloisiana yuasai (Grylloblattodea) are described. The results are compared with conditions found in representatives of other lower neopteranExpand

Revival of Palaeoptera—head characters support a monophyletic origin of Odonata and Ephemeroptera (Insecta)
The earliest branching event in winged insects, one of the core problems regarding early insect evolution, was addressed using characters of the head. The head is arguably one of the most complexExpand

An integrative phylogenomic approach illuminates the evolutionary history of cockroaches and termites (Blattodea)
Phylogenetic relationships among subgroups of cockroaches and termites are still matters of debate. Their divergence times and major phenotypic transitions during evolution are also not yet settled.Expand

A New Cretaceous Insect with a Unique Cephalo-thoracic Scissor Device
Insects use different parts of their body to cling to mating partners, to catch prey, or to defend themselves, in most cases the mouthparts or the legs. However, in 400 million years of evolution [1,Expand
