Adaptive camouflage: what can be learned from the wetting behaviour of the tropical flat bugs Dysodius lunatus and Dysodius magnus
The present work attempts to explain the phenomenon and transfer it to a polymer surface via laser structuring and shows exactly the behaviour of the natural role model – immediate spreading of water and the formation of a thin continuous water film changing optical properties of the surface.
A new species of the genus Capsus Fabricius (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Miridae: Mirinae) from the Korean Peninsula, with a key to the Korean Capsus species.
A new species of the genus Capsus Fabricius from the Korean Peninsula is reported, and congeners in the Korean peninsula are reviewed.
Aneurus sp. from the early Miocene Foulden Maar, New Zealand: the first Southern Hemisphere record of fossil Aradidae (Insecta: Hemiptera: Heteroptera)
Abstract The first specimen of fossil Heteroptera (Aradidae, Aneurinae) from New Zealand is figured and described. The ventrally preserved specimen from early Miocene lake sediments at Foulden Maar,
New Aradidae in Mesozoic Burmese Amber (Hemiptera, Heteroptera)
Two new genera and species of the flat bug family Aradidae in Burmese Amber, Myanmezira longicornis and Microaradus anticus nov. gen, are described and illustrated and compared with the two genera thus far described as well as with related extant taxa.
Two new genera and species of Tingidae from Cretaceous amber from Myanmar (Burma) (Hemiptera: Heteroptera).
From the Upper Cretaceous Burmese amber, the first known genera of Tingidae, Spinitingis n. gen. and Burmacader n. gen. with the species Spinitingis ellenbergeri n. sp. and Burmacader multivenosus n.
New lacebugs (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Tingidae) from Upper Cretaceous Burmese amber
Abstract From the Upper Cretaceous Burmese amber, only three genera and species of Tingidae (Spinitingis ellenbergeri Heiss and Guilbert, 2013; Burmacader multivenosus Heiss and Guilbert, 2013; and
DNA barcoding of flat bugs (Hemiptera: Aradidae) with phylogenetic implications
An open online library of Aradidae DNA barcodes, specimen images and geographical data is introduced with intent of promoting further community-based DNA barcoding of flat bugs.
Brachyrhynchus membranaceus (Fabricius), an Old World Flat Bug (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Aradidae: Mezirinae) Newly Discovered in the Western Hemisphere
Abstract. The Old World aradid Brachyrhynchus membranaceus (Fabricius), belonging to the subfamily Mezirinae, is reported for the first time from the Western Hemisphere. Since 2005, eight specimens
