Reconstructing the phylogeny of Blattodea: robust support for interfamilial relationships and major clades
TLDR
Preliminary phylogenetic relationships among cockroaches based on five genes, combined with data from a recent study that examined these same genes from 49 species, resulted in significantly higher levels of support for a number of previously recognized groupings.
Maternal care by Early Cretaceous cockroaches
TLDR
It is inferred that the cockroach reproductive mode using the complete oothecate structure occurred during or before the mid Early Cretaceous, and a new life-history trait providing maternal protection and care may have been a key factor in the subsequent evolutionary diversification and ecological expansion of modern cockroach lineages.
Revision of Eucorydia Hebard, 1929 from China, with notes on the genus and species worldwide (Blattodea, Corydioidea, Corydiidae)
TLDR
Five new species of cockroach from China are described and illustrated and Corydia plagiata Walker, 1868 is confirmed to be a junior synonym of Eucorydia ornata (Saussure, 1864).
Species Delimitation and Phylogenetic Relationships in Ectobiid Cockroaches (Dictyoptera, Blattodea) from China
TLDR
The molecular data and 6 cockroach fossil calibrations were used to obtain a preliminary estimate of the timescale of ectobiid evolution and the major subfamilies in the group were found to have diverged between ~125–110 Ma, and morphospecies pairs were find to have Diverged ~10 or more Ma.
A new genus and species of the planthopper tribe Augilini Baker (Hemiptera, Caliscelidae, Ommatidiotinae) from Thailand and China
TLDR
A new genus and new species of caliscelid planthopper (Hemiptera: Fulgoromorpha), Pseudosymplanella nigrifasciata are described and illustrated and represents the first record of the tribe Augilini from Thailand and the firstrecord of bamboo as a host for a member of this tribe.
Sinolatindia petila gen. n. and sp. n. from China (Blattodea, Corydiidae, Latindiinae)
TLDR
Describing, illustrations and a distribution map of the new taxon are provided and Comparisons with the type genus Latindia Stål, 1860 and the genus Homopteroidea Shelford, 1906 are given.
Contribution to the cockroach genus Ctenoneura Hanitsch, 1925 (Blattodea: Corydioidea: Corydiidae) with descriptions of seven new species from China.
TLDR
Seven new species of Ctenoneura Hanitsch, 1925 are described from Hainan and Yunnan, China and male genitalia of this genus is described and illustrated for the first time and is found to lack any genital hook.
Protagonista lugubris, a cockroach species new to China and its contribution to the revision of genus Protagonista, with notes on the taxonomy of Archiblattinae (Blattodea, Blattidae)
TLDR
The male and female genitalia of Protagonista are described and illustrated for the first time and it is proposed that Eroblatta Shelford, 1910, a genus closely related to Protagonistas, should be placed in the subfamily Archiblattinee rather than Blattinae.
Chromosome number diversity in Asian Cryptocercus (Blattodea, Cryptocercidae) and implications for karyotype evolution and geographic distribution on the Western Sichuan Plateau
TLDR
It is believed that three factors shaped the current distribution of Cryptocercus karyotypes: a variability of chromosomes, their low capability for dispersal, and their vulnerability to climate change.
A new genus of the tribe Issini Spinola (Hemiptera: Fulgoroidea: Issidae) from China
TLDR
A new genus and species of Issidae (Hemiptera) is described based on specimens from Hainan, China and is compared to the superficially similar genus Choutagus Zhang, Wang and Che.
