The phylogeny of the Orthoptera (Insecta) as deduced from mitogenomic gene sequences
The findings suggest that the best phylogenetic inferences can be made when moderately divergent nucleotide data from mitogenomes are analyzed, and that the NADH dataset was suited for studying orthopteran phylogenetic relationships at different taxonomic levels.
Sequence and phylogenetic analysis of complete mitochondrial DNA genomes of two grasshopper species Gomphocerus rufus (Linnaeus, 1758) and Primnoa arctica (Zhang and Jin, 1985) (Orthoptera:
A general law on the composition of the caeliferan mitogenome is summarized, which suggests that within Caelifera, the subfamily Gomphocerinae appears to be a paraphyletic group in the analyses of the protein-coding gene (PCG) dataset and a monophyleticgroup in the analysis of rRNA dataset.
A Comparative Analysis of Mitochondrial Genomes in Orthoptera (Arthropoda: lnsecta) and Genome Descriptions of Three Grasshopper Species
In this study, the comparative analysis of the stem-loop secondary structure in A+T-rich region of all Orthoptera species available to date is stressed, and new findings are reported which may facilitate further investigation and better understanding of this secondary structure.
Phylogeny and classification of the Catantopidae at the tribal level (Orthoptera, Acridoidea)
The results suggest that earlier classification systems of grasshoppers in general and Catantopidae in particular most probably consist of many groups that are not natural due the heavy reliance on genitalia features and need to be revised in the light of future phylogenetic studies.
Comparative Analysis of the Mitochondrial Control Region in Orthoptera
The results showed that the short sequences of the stem-loop secondary structure provided good resolution at the intra-subfamily level within the Caelifera, whereas it poorly resolved familyand subfamily-level relationships.
A taxonomic study of the genus Austrohancockia Günther (Orthoptera:Tetrigoidea: Tetrigidae)
Eleven species of Austrohancockia Gunther were systematically researched in this paper. One species, Austrohancockia tuberfemora sp. nov., is described as new to science. This new species can be
DNA barcoding reveals polymorphism in the pygmy grasshopper Tetrix bolivari (Orthoptera, Tetrigidae)
It is suggested that type B morphs have greater camouflage effects against natural backgrounds such as grass or sand than type A morphs, and type A has higher frequency and more haplotypes than type B.
Two new species of the genus Teredorus Hancock, 1906 (Orthoptera, Tetrigidae) from China, with a key to the species of the genus
Two new species are described from China and an updated identification key to all known species of the tetrigid genus Teredorus Hancock is given.
A systematic study of the genus Paragavialidium Zheng (Orthoptera: Tetrigoidea: Scelimeninae)
The distribution and an updated identification key of the genus Paragavialidium Zheng is given and a new species, P. serrimarginis Deng et Zheng, sp.
