Co‐cladogenesis spanning three phyla: leafhoppers (Insecta: Hemiptera: Cicadellidae) and their dual bacterial symbionts
Analysis of host and symbiont data sets support a congruent evolutionary history between sharpshooters, Sulcia and Baumannia and provide the first strong evidence for long‐term co‐inheritance of multiple symbionts during the diversification of a eukaryotic host.
Anchored Hybrid Enrichment-Based Phylogenomics of Leafhoppers and Treehoppers (Hemiptera: Cicadomorpha: Membracoidea)
Divergence time estimates indicate that most of the poorly resolved divergence events among major leafhoppers lineages occurred during the lower to middle Cretaceous and that most modern leafhopper subfamilies, as well as the lineage comprising the three recognized families of treehoppers, also arose during the Cret Jurassic.
When rare is just a matter of sampling: unexpected dominance of clubtail dragonflies (Odonata, Gomphidae) through different collecting methods at Parque Nacional da Serra do Cipó, Minas Gerais State,…
The results are outstanding due the high number of species of Gomphidae (7 out of 26 Odonata species), including a new species of Cyanogomphus Selys, 1873, obtained by two non-traditional collecting methods.
Validity of Homalodisca and of H. vitripennis as the Name for Glassy-Winged Sharpshooter (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Cicadellinae)
Abstract A male of Tettigonia vitripennis Germar—deposited in the recently rediscovered Germar Hemiptera collection, in the Ivan Franko National University (Ukraine)—is designated as the lectotype…
Phylogeny and biogeography of Neotropical spittlebugs (Hemiptera: Cercopidae: Ischnorhininae): revised tribal classification based on morphological data
A phylogenetic analysis of Ischnorhininae using 108 morphological characters and including 53 of the 59 recognized genera found significant support for the monophyly of many Neotropical genera, but Fennah's tribal classification is revised because tribes Neaenini, Ischn orhinini and Tomaspidini were recovered as polyphyletic.
DNA-based Identification and Descriptions of Immatures of Kempnyia Klapálek (Insecta:Plecoptera) from Macaé River Basin, Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil

Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) barcode (cytochrome c oxidase subunit I [COI) sequences have been used to associate adult and immature stages of stoneflies as a rapid and effective alternative to rearing immatures for Neotropical species, which have very few described immature stages.

Phylogeography of cave crickets (Ceuthophilus spp.) in central Texas: A keystone taxon for the conservation and management of federally listed endangered cave arthropods
The molecular data show relatively high levels of genetic variation and phylogeographic structure of Ceuthophilus species, which are higher than that predicted by the currently accepted species level taxonomy, and genetically divergent lineages uncovered by the DNA sequence data may be cryptic species.
New World spittlebugs (Hemiptera: Cercopidae: Ischnorhininae): Dated molecular phylogeny, classification, and evolution of aposematic coloration.
Phylogenomics of Auchenorrhyncha (Insecta: Hemiptera) using transcriptomes: examining controversial relationships via degeneracy coding and interrogation of gene conflict
The results provide a generally well‐supported framework for future studies of auchenorrhynchan phylogeny and suggest that transcriptome sequencing is likely to be a fruitful source of phylogenetic data for resolving its clades, however, future work should account for the potential effects of GC content heterogeneity on relationships recovered in this group.
