Three new extra-neotropical species of Troctopsocidae (Insecta: Psocoptera)
The family Troctopsocidae is essentially neotropical, the only extra-neotropical species previously known is Chelyopsocus garganicus Lienhard, and a second European species is described from Greece. Expand
Bridging the gap between chewing and sucking in the hemipteroid insects: new insights from Cretaceous amber.
A well preserved mid Cretaceous amber fossil of the paraneopteran insect family Archipsyllidae is reported and a phylogenetic analysis that includes Mydiognathus strongly supports the monophyly of the Paraneoptera. Expand
Redescription of the genus Marcenendius Navás (Psocodea: 'Psocoptera': Amphientomidae) with a key to western Palaearctic amphientomids
Nymphs of the latter two species are characterized by the presence of characteristically curled "corkscrew" hairs on dorsal side of thorax and abdomen, a kind of setae previously unknown in Psocoptera, which are probably responsible for nymphal camouflage due to adherent dust particles. Expand
Female Penis, Male Vagina, and Their Correlated Evolution in a Cave Insect
The reversal of intromittent organs in the insect genus Neotrogla (Psocodea: Prionoglarididae) from Brazilian caves is reported, which is probably driven by reversed sexual selection with females competing for seminal gifts. Expand
In search of the sister group of the true lice : A systematic review of booklice and their relatives, with an updated checklist of Liposcelididae (Insecta: Psocodea)
The taxonomy, fossil record, phylogeny, and systematic placement of the booklouse family Liposcelididae were reviewed and paraphyly of Psocoptera is now well established, based on both morphological and molecular data. Expand
Revised classification of 'Psocoptera' from Cretaceous amber, a reassessment of published information
A revised classification of 'Psocoptera' from Cretaceous amber, a reassessment of published information is presented. Expand
Trichadenotecnum species from Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore (Insecta: Psocodea: 'Psocoptera': Psocidae).
Twenty species of the bark louse genus Trichadenotecnum Enderlein from Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore are recognised, with four new species and ten recorded for the first time from this region, together with an unnamed species represented by a single female. Expand
