A revised classification of the jumping plant-lice (Hemiptera: Psylloidea)
TLDR
A revised classification for the world jumping plant-lice (Hemiptera: Psylloidea) is presented comprising all published family and genus-group names and forty two new species combinations are proposed resulting from new genus- group synonymies and a replacement name.
Cospeciation of Psyllids and Their Primary Prokaryotic Endosymbionts
TLDR
The rate of sequence change in the 16S-23S rDNA of the psyllid P endosymbiont was considerably higher than that of other bacteria, including other fast-evolving insect endosYmbionts.
The jumping plant-lice (Hemiptera, Psylloidea) associated with Schinus (Anacardiaceae): systematics, biogeography and host plant relationships
TLDR
The gall-forming psylloid fauna associated with the temperate Neotropical plant genus Schinus is revised, and keys are provided for adults, larvae and galls, and cladistic analyses suggest that the Schinus inhabiting calophyids form two monophyletic groups.
Introduced Eucalyptus psyllids in Brazil
TLDR
The four eucalypt psyllid species introduced into Brazil are presented with information on distribution, hosts, biology and control.
New Species in the Old World: Europe as a Frontier in Biodiversity Exploration, a Test Bed for 21st Century Taxonomy
TLDR
It is shown that contrary to general belief, developed and heavily-studied parts of the world are important reservoirs of unknown species, and the importance of developing a system that better supports and guides this formidable workforce as they seek to overcome the Taxonomic Impediment and speed up the process of describing the planetary biodiversity before it is too late.
Diversity of bacterial endosymbionts and bacteria-host co-evolution in Gondwanan relict moss bugs (Hemiptera: Coleorrhyncha: Peloridiidae).
TLDR
The first molecular identification of the bacteriome-associated, obligate endosymbiont in a Gondwanan relict insect taxon, the moss bugs (Hemiptera: Coleorrhyncha: Peloridiidae), which represents one of the oldest lineages within the Hemiptera.
Checklist and comments on the jumping plant-lice (Hemiptera: Psylloidea) from Brazil
TLDR
The published records of jumping plant-lice from Brazil comprise 70 named species but four are erroneous or doubtful, and seven named species records are added here based on recent collections bringing the number of valid species to 73.
A taxonomic reassessment of the triozid genus Bactericera (Hemiptera: Psylloidea).
TLDR
There is no evidence that the genera or subgenera, in any of their present or past definitions, constitute natural units, but the six former together form a monophyletic group, defined by a combination of adult, larval and egg characters.
