Phylogeny of the Dictyoptera Re-examined (Insecta)
A critical evaluation of the currently available morphological and biological data base relevant to reconstructing phylogeny in Dictyoptera is presented to demonstrate the importance of a thorough treatment of characters in phyloge- netic reconstruction.
The Diversity of the True Hoppers (Hemiptera: Auchenorrhyncha)
Generic revision of the New World tribe Hoplophorionini (Hemiptera: Membracidae: Membracinae)
A phylogenetic analysis of 23 hoplophorionine species produced 9 minimal‐length cladograms that were similar in many respects, and Potnia Stål appears to have retained the greatest number of ancestral features.
Morphology‐based phylogeny of the treehopper family Membracidae (Hemiptera: Cicadomorpha: Membracoidea)
A parsimony‐based phylogenetic analysis of eighty‐three morphological characters of adults and immatures of seventy representatives of the tribes and subfamilies of Membracidae and two outgroup taxa…
Treehopper trees: phylogeny of Membracidae (Hemiptera: Cicadomorpha: Membracoidea) based on molecules and morphology
The results of the combined data analyses grouped membracids into two well‐supported lineages, consistent with the following hypotheses: (1) the posterior pronotal process was derived and lost multiple times during the evolution of Membracidae; (3) maternal care evolved independently multiple times and may or may not have been preceded by the acquisition of ant mutualism.
Distribution of Karyotypes of the Cryptocercus punctulatus Species Complex (Dictyoptera: Cryptocercidae) in the Southern Appalachians: Relation to Habitat and History
It is suggested that the different karyotypes arose by vicariance, with current boundaries formed by secondary contact when populations isolated in glacial refugia subsequently spread into high-mountain habitats.
Superfamily Membracoidea (Homoptera: Auchenorrhyncha). I. Introduction and revised classification with new family‐group taxa
Abstract. A key and descriptions are given for the four families here recognized for the superfamily Membracoidea Rafinesque, 1815: Cicadellidae Latreille, 1825 (sensu Oman et al., 1990),…
Richness of the Nearctic Treehopper Fauna (Hemiptera: Aetalionidae and Membracidae)
This work provides an alphabetical checklist of the species of the indigenous Nearctic treehopper fauna, as well as discussions and two tables summarizing the taxonomic and regional diversity of this rich, distinctive fauna.
