Morphological characterization of the mouthparts of the vector leafhopper Psammotettix striatus (L.) (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae).
A microscopic analysis of the ultrastructure of the mouthparts of the adult leafhopper Psammotettix striatus was conducted using scanning electron microscopy and the putative functions of the Mouthparts were determined. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of subfamilies in the family Hesperiidae (Lepidoptera: Hesperioidea) from China
The phylogenetic relationships of the subfamilies of Chinese skippers based on three mitochondrial genes imply that the five subfam families of Chinese Hesperiidae should be divided into: Coeliadinee, Eudaminae, Pyrginae, Heteropterinae and HesPeriinae. Expand
Planthopper family Issidae (Insecta: Hemiptera: Fulgoromorpha): linking molecular phylogeny with classification.
A molecular phylogeny of the planthopper family Issidae (Hemiptera, Fulgoroidea) is provided using both Maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference analyses, which challenge the recent proposed "modern classification" of the family. Expand
Ultrastructure of the spermatozoa of Psammotettix striatus (Linnaeus) and Exitianus nanus (Distant) (Hemiptera: Auchenorrhyncha: Cicadellidae: Deltocephalinae).
The ultrastructure of mature spermatozoa of two leafhoppers Psammotettix striatus and Exitianus nanus, representing two different tribes of the largest leafhopper subfamily, Deltocephalinae, was examined by light and transmission electron microscopy. Expand
A new cryptic species of Nagiella Munroe from China revealed by DNA barcodes and morphological evidence (Lepidoptera, Crambidae, Spilomelinae)
This new species is very similar to N. quadrimaculalis (Kollar, 1844) in general morphological characters of forewing and male genitalia and molecular evidence shows that these two species diverge in COI barcode region by more than 3.2%. Expand
Comparative Proteomics and Expression Analysis of Five Genes in Epicauta chinensis Larvae from the First to Fifth Instar
Blister beetle is an important insect model for both medicinal and pure research. Previous research has mainly focused on its biology and biochemistry, but very little data is yet available in theExpand
Structural insights into Cydia pomonella pheromone binding protein 2 mediated prediction of potentially active semiochemicals
Progress made in the present study helps establish an efficient method for predicting potentially active compounds and prepares for the application of high-throughput virtual screening in searching semiochemicals by taking insights into binding mode analyses. Expand
Characterization of the complete mitochondrial genomes of Maiestas dorsalis and Japananus hyalinus (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae) and comparison with other Membracoidea
Phylogenetic analyses of the 11 available membracoid mitogenomes and outgroups representing the other two cicadomorphan superfamilies supported the monophyly of Membracoidea, and indicated that treehoppers are a derived lineage of leafhoppers. Expand
Genetic structure and diversity of a newly invasive species, the codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) in China
The results suggest that the loss of genetic diversity in C. pomonella populations resulted from the successive colonization of founder populations, which led to the lack of any bottleneck effect and the high level of population genetic structuring is related to the weak flight capacity of the codling moth and the human-aided dispersal rather than to geographic distance.

Identification of multiple small heat-shock protein genes in Plutella xylostella (L.) and their expression profiles in response to abiotic stresses
The results show that different sHSPs might play distinct roles in the development and regulation of physiological activities, as well as in response to various abiotic stresses of DBM. Expand
