ACOUSTIC SIGNALS IN THE HOMOPTERA: Behavior, Taxonomy, and Evolution
TLDR
In order to communicate over longer distances small insects, because of the purely physical limitations of their size, would have to use very high frequency, or ultrasonic, sounds, but high frequency sounds are not suitable for communication in structurally complicated habitats dominated by plants.
Species :the units of biodiversity
TLDR
This work presents practical approaches to species concepts for living organisms, and a comparison of the biological and phylogenetic species concepts of marine invertebrates.
Variation in courtship signals and hybridization between geographically definable populations of the rice Brown planthopper, Nilaparvata lugens (Stål)
TLDR
Divergence in mate recognition signals has apparently evolved in advance of general genetic incompatibilities (post-mating isolating mechanisms) in this species.
Insect Sounds and Communication: Physiology, Behaviour, Ecology and Evolution

Casas and Christelle Magal SOUNDS in VARIOUS TAXA of INSECTS Vibratory signals produced by Hemipteras K. Kanmiya Communication by Vibratories Signals in Diptera.
Variation in hostplant relations and courtship signals of weed‐associated populations of the brown planthopper, Nilaparvata lugens (Stål), from Australia and Asia: a test of the recognition species
TLDR
Populations of the morphological species, Nilaparvata lugens (Stal), were found to breed and feed on the grass, Leersia hexandra Schwartz, at six sites in Queensland, Australia, suggesting that these populations represent sympatric biological species in Australia.
Chromosome variation in British populations of Oncopsis (Hemiptera:Cicadellidae)
TLDR
The British species of Oncopsis fall into two groups with respect to male karyotype: Montane populations which occur on Betula pubescens are XO-monomorphic whereas populations in lowland woodlands are polymorphic, including both XO and neo-XY types.
The status of weed-associated populations of the brown planthopper, Nilaparvata lugens (Stål) - host race or biological species?
TLDR
It was concluded that the populations from rice and from L. hexandra represent two distinct, but very closely allied, sympatric species in the Philippines.
Handbook for the identification of leafhoppers and planthoppers of rice.
TLDR
This handbook provides keys to identify over 70 leafhopper and planthopper species recorded in the major rice growing regions and all the major pest species are included, as well as others that are frequently found but not yet considered important.
