Cladistic relationships among higher groups of Heteroptera: congruence between morphological and molecular data sets
TLDR
The molecular evidence corroborates the morphologically based theory of a sister group relationship between Aradoidea and trichophoran Pentatomomorpha and indicates that the Homoptera are probably not monophyletic.
Phylogenetic relationships within the Cimicomorpha (Hemiptera: Heteroptera): a total‐evidence analysis
TLDR
Within the Miridae, several inclusive monophyletic groups at the subfamily/tribal level are more or less consistently recognized when molecular data are included; however, the interrelationships of the subfamilies vary substantially across the range of analyses.
Systematics and evolution of Heteroptera: 25 years of progress.
TLDR
Given the fascinating natural history of true bugs and their status as model organisms for evolutionary studies, integration of cladistic analyses in a broader biogeographic and evolutionary context deserves increased attention.
Phylogenetic relationships of family groups in Pentatomoidea based on morphology and DNA sequences (Insecta: Heteroptera)
TLDR
The monophyly of the Pentatomidae appears unequivocal, inclusive of the Aphylinae and Cyrtocorinae, on the basis of morphology, the latter two taxa not being represented in the molecular data set.
REVISION OF NEW WORLD PLAGIOGNATHUS FIEBER, WITH COMMENTS ON THE PALEARCTIC FAUNA AND THE DESCRIPTION OF A NEW GENUS (HETEROPTERA: MIRIDAE: PHYLINAE)
Abstract The diagnostic features of Plagiognathus are clarified, with characteristics of the male genitalia being used for the first time in diagnosing the Nearctic species. The North American
