Phylogeny of the Dictyoptera Re-examined (Insecta)
This work presents a critical evaluation of the currently available morphological and biological data base relevant to reconstructing phylogeny in Dictyoptera. In 1992, B.L. Thorne and J.M. CarpenterExpand

Generic revision of the New World tribe Hoplophorionini (Hemiptera: Membracidae: Membracinae)
Abstract. The tribe Hoplophorionini Goding, 1926, includes 105 species of treehoppers in 10 genera. All are apparently subsocial and lack mutualism with honeydew‐collecting hymenopterans. In manyExpand

Treehopper trees: phylogeny of Membracidae (Hemiptera: Cicadomorpha: Membracoidea) based on molecules and morphology
Abstract.  Recent independent phylogenetic analyses of membracid relationships based on molecular and morphological data have identified monophyletic lineages within the family. However, the resultsExpand

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 taxaExpand

Phylogeny of the treehoppers (Insecta: Hemiptera: Membracidae): evidence from two nuclear genes.
We present a molecular systematic investigation of relationships among family-group taxa of Membracidae, comprising nearly 3.5 kb of nucleotide sequence data from the nuclear genes elongationExpand

Distribution of Karyotypes of the Cryptocercus punctulatus Species Complex (Dictyoptera: Cryptocercidae) in the Southern Appalachians: Relation to Habitat and History
Abstract The distributional pattern of the four known karyotypes (male 2n = 37, 39, 43, 45) of the Cryptocercus punctulatus Scudder species complex is reported, based on 71 sites in the SouthernExpand

Superfamily Membracoidea (Homoptera: Auchenorrhyncha). II. Cladistic analysis and conclusions
Abstract. Homologies among traditional morphological characters in the Membracoidea (sensu lato) are reassessed and the phylogenetic relationships among higher membracoid taxa are explored,Expand

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),Expand

Richness of the Nearctic Treehopper Fauna (Hemiptera: Aetalionidae and Membracidae)
The indigenous Nearctic treehopper fauna includes 2 families, 6 subfamilies, 20 tribes, 68–72 genera, and 276–280 described species, of which 1 tribe, 16 genera, and 195 species are endemic. ThisExpand

On Dorsal Prothoracic Appendages in Treehoppers (Hemiptera: Membracidae) and the Nature of Morphological Evidence
A spectacular hypothesis was published recently, which suggested that the “helmet” (a dorsal thoracic sclerite that obscures most of the body) of treehoppers (Insecta: Hemiptera: Membracidae) isExpand
