The peloridiid 18S RNA model presented here provides the most accurate template to date for aligning homologous nucleotides of hemipteran taxa and using folded 18S rRNA to infer homology of character as morpho-molecular structures or nucleotide and scoring particular sites or substructures is discussed.
Molecular Phylogeny of Fulgoromorpha (Insecta, Hemiptera, Archaeorrhyncha). The Enigmatic Tettigometridae: Evolutionary Affiliations and Historical Biogeography
Several parsimony‐based analyses using data sets composed of nucleotide sequences of 18S rDNAs (genes encoding 18SRRNAs) support a monophyletic Fulgoromorpha and depicts Tettigometridae as a relatively derived lineage in a monophysletic relationship with Tropiduchidae.
The earliest known holometabolous insects
Although these discoveries reveal unexpected Pennsylvanian eumetabolan diversity, the lineage radiated more successfully only after the mass extinctions at the end of the Permian period, giving rise to the familiar crown groups of their respective clades.
Sensory plate organs of the antenna in the Meenoplidae-kinnaridae group (Hemiptera: Fulgoromorpha)
A new case of trophobiosis between ants and Heteroptera.
Field observations, laboratory rearing and descriptions of immatures of the planthopper Hyalesthes obsoletus (Hemiptera: Cixiidae).
The cixiid planthopper Hyalesthes obsoletus Signoret is an efficient vector of the stolbur phytoplasma, the cause of vari- ous crop diseases and overwinters as larvae on the roots of its host plants.
Morphology and distribution of the external labial sensilla in Fulgoromorpha (Insecta: Hemiptera)
A gustatory function is provided for several chemoreceptive labial sensilla, as in the antennal flagellum sensilla in some other Hemiptera, which represents a more recently evolved function for the planthopper labium.
