Abstract A new species, Rhaphidosomapaganicumsp. nov. (Heteroptera: Reduviidae: Harpactorinae: Rhaphidosomatini), is described from the Dry Zone of Myanmar. It is the fifth species of Rhaphidosoma Amyot et Serville, 1843, known from the Oriental Region, and the first record of the genus for Myanmar and Indochina. The structure of the external and internal terminalia of the male and female is described and illustrated in detail. The completely inflated endosoma is described for the first time…

Comparative Cytogenetics of Lace Bugs (Tingidae, Heteroptera): New Data and a Brief Overview

It is concluded that the search for chromosomal landmarks is of paramount importance for the characterization of the lace bug cytogenetics in more detail and all data obtained to date on Tingidae karyotypes are provided.



On the Structure of the Aedeagus in Shield Bugs (Heteroptera, Pentatomidae): 1. Subfamilies Discocephalinae and Phyllocephalinae

The main goal of the present work was to study the structure of the fully straightened aedeagus in Pentatomidae and to reveal characters important for the supergeneric diag- nostics of the group.

Analysis of the karyotype structure in Ricolla quadrispinosa (Linneus, 1767): inferences about the chromosomal evolution of the tribes of Harpactorinae (Heteroptera, Reduviidae)

A proposal of karyotype evolution for the subfamily Harpactorinae, based on existing phylogenetic studies for the group is presented and indicated that different chromosomal rearrangements are involved in the evolution of the species.

Contributions to the Morphology and Phylogeny of the Reduvioidea (Hemiptera: Heteroptera). Part III. The Male and Female Genitalia

The various genital characteristics indicate a very close relationship between the Reduviidae and Pachynomidae, and the Thaumastocoridae also appear to be related, and do not show a close relationship of the reduviids to the Joppeicidae and Tingidae.

Hoffmannocoris sinuatus sp. nov. and a new generic synonym in the Harpactorinae (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) of Africa, with a brief history of ‘Rhaphidosomatini’

‘Rhaphidosomatini’ are a group of harpactorine assassin bugs centred around three predominantly sub‐Saharan genera and its composition has remained obfuscated, as nine other small genera have been subsequently associated with the group, either explicitly or through implied relationship.

Chromosomes and their meiotic behavior in twelve species of the subfamily Harpactorinae (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Reduviidae) from north India.

Cytogenetic trends within the subfamily have been discussed in the light of newly added cytogenetic data of 12 species, which may later be used in tracing the evolution of chromosomes in Harpactorinae.

Morphology of the Alimentary and Reproductive Organs in Reduviidae (Hemiptera: Heteroptera) with Comments on Interrelationships within the Family

The morphology of the salivary glands and internal reproductive organs has been studied in 9 subfamilies of Reduviidae and the study has supported the idea of a close relationship between the seemingly different Tribelocephalinae and Ectrichodiinae.

Morphological aspects of the testes of 18 species of terrestrial of Heteroptera from Northwestern São Paulo (Brazil)

The analysis of 18 species of terrestrial Heteroptera from the northwestern part of Sao Paulo revealed some differences between the testicles of these species, including their shape, morphology, colours, and number of testicular lobes.

Karyotype evolution in Reduviidae (Insecta: Heteroptera) with special reference to Stenopodainae and Harpactorinae

Considering the cytogenetic characteristics of Reduviidae two evolutionary trends can be observed within the family: a reduction in the number of autosomes through fusion mechanisms, and an increase in thenumber of sex chromosomes through fragmentations (multiple systems).

The Fauna of British India, including Ceylon and Burma

The general character of “The Fauna of British India” is so well known, and has been so frequently commented on, that it is only necessary to say that the present half-volume is similar to those which have preceded it, and that the high character of the series is fully maintained.

Meiotic Behavior of 18 Species From Eight Families of Terrestrial Heteroptera

This study extends the knowledge of these characteristics, such as the variations related to chromosome complements, sex chromosome systems, and meiotic behavior, to terrestrial Heteroptera.
