Maternal care in Acanthosomatinae (Insecta: Heteroptera: Acanthosomatidae)—correlated evolution with morphological change
It is shown that maternal care is an apomorphic trait that has arisen multiple times from the presence of PO within the subfamily Acanthosomatinae, which suggests an evolutionary trade-off between the two traits resulting from physiological costs.
The identity of jewel bugs described by Shonen Matsumura from Taiwan (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Scutelleridae)
