Monophyly and Associated Terms
TLDR
It would seem useful to provide precise definitions of monophyly and such associated terms as polyphyly and paraphyly, which can be very helpful in discussing phylogeny and the evolutionary inferences that may be made from a cladistic analysis. Expand
An Investigation of the Taxonomic Value of the Phallus in the Lygaeidae (Hemiptera-Heteroptera)
The foundation of the higher classification of the hemipterous family Lygaeidae was laid down by Stal (1862, 1872, 1874). Modifications and additions have been made by Reuter (1878), Breddin (1907),Expand
A REMARKABLE NEW MICROPTEROUS NYSIUS SPECIES FROM THE AEOLIAN ZONE OF MAUNA KEA, HAWAI'I ISLAND (HEMIPTERA: HETEROPTERA: LYGAEIDAE)1
A new species of predator-scav enger, Nysius wekiuicola, is described from the summit of Mauna Kea, Hawai'i Island. This micropterous species appears to be dependent upon mori­ bund and deadExpand
Stridulatory Mechanisms in the Lygaeidae, with a New American Genus of Orsillinae (Hemiptera: Heteroptera)
TLDR
A New World origin for some of the Hawaiian orsilline fauna; support for the suggestion that the Cleradini is a polyphyletic group; possible synonomy of the genera Prosomoeus and Primierus ; and possible generic separation of the non-Cuban species of Pamphantus are suggested. Expand
An Evolutionary Systematist's View of Classification
TLDR
The goal of evolutionary systematics, to provide classifications of maximum utility through maximnum use of evolutionary theory, has failed of accomplishment to the extent that practitioners of evolutionarySystematics have relied upon descriptive rather than theoretical definitions of terms. Expand
