The phasmatodeans or stick and leaf insects are considered to be a mesodiverse insect order with more than 3000 species reported mainly from the tropics. The stick insect subfamily Necrosciinae comprises approximately 700 described species in more than 60 genera from the Oriental and Australian region, forming the most species‐rich subfamily traditionally recognized within Phasmatodea. However, the monophyly of this taxon has never been thoroughly tested and the evolutionary relationships among… Expand
A tree of leaves: Phylogeny and historical biogeography of the leaf insects (Phasmatodea: Phylliidae)
TLDR
This phylogenetic work is the first to include all major groups of leaf insects and highlights cryptic diversity and provides the basis for future studies on their taxonomy and a framework to unveil more of their cryptic and underestimated diversity. Expand
Mitochondrial genomes of stick insects (Phasmatodea) and phylogenetic considerations
TLDR
The monophyletic Phasmatodea was recovered only when the analysis employed the site-heterogeneous CAT-GTR model in PhyloBayes and used the nucleotide dataset PCG_nt. Expand
Phasmatodea (Arthropoda, Insecta) in Brazil: Status, New Record, and Proposal for Using Molecular Tools to Assist in Species Identification
TLDR
A historical survey of the Phasmatodea studies that have been conducted in Brazil thus far is presented, indicating gaps in knowledge and discussing perspectives to expand understanding within this group. Expand
Integrated phylogenomic and fossil evidence of stick and leaf insects (Phasmatodea) reveal a Permian–Triassic co-origination with insectivores
TLDR
A Permian to Triassic origin of crown Phasmatodea coinciding with the radiation of early insectivorous parareptiles, amphibians and synapsids is recovered. Expand
Old World and New World Phasmatodea: Phylogenomics Resolve the Evolutionary History of Stick and Leaf Insects
TLDR
The results suggest that the extant distribution of Phasmatodea is largely the result of dispersal events in a recently and rapidly diversified insect lineage rather than the resultof vicariant processes. Expand

Abstract The Lonchodinae (Phasmatodea: Phasmatidae) is rich in insect species with more than 330 species of 40 genera. The phylogenetic relationships within Lonchodinae have been under debate. WeExpand
Cladistic analysis of Paraphasma (Phasmatodea: Pseudophasmatidae) highlights the importance of the phallic organ for phasmid systematics
TLDR
The phylogenetic reconstruction revealed Paraphasma as polyphyletic and led to a new, monotypic genus, Ecuadoriphasma gen. nov, and the usefulness of phallic morphology for inferring phylogenetic relationships in Phasmatodea, especially among closely related genera and species. Expand
Phylomitogenomics provide new perspectives on the Euphasmatodea radiation (Insecta: Phasmatodea).
TLDR
A divergence time analysis leveraging ten fossil specimens representative of most polyneopteran lineages is performed, suggesting that the Triassic-Jurassic mass extinction and the breakup of Pangea could have contributed to the process of Euphasmatodea diversification. Expand
Deposition of phasmid eggs (Phasmatodea) in the nests of Acanthomyrmex glabfemoralis Zhou & Zheng, 1997 (Hymenoptera: Formicidae: Myrmicinae)
Ant-mediated secondary dispersal (myrmecochory) of phasmid eggs using a fleshy nutrient-rich appendage called capitulum remains poorly studied, albeit the egg capitula are present in a large numberExpand
Reconstructing the nonadaptive radiation of an ancient lineage of ground‐dwelling stick insects (Phasmatodea: Heteropterygidae)
TLDR
It is concluded that the current taxonomic diversity appears to be mainly driven by allopatry and not to be the result of niche differentiation, and this radiation is thus best described as a nonadaptive radiation. Expand

Phylogenetic relationships in the genus Agathemera (Insecta: Phasmatodea) inferred from the genes 16S, COI and H3
TLDR
The results show that the genus Agathemera is monophyletic; six of its eight species showed phylogenetic support, while the group A. claraziana + A. millepunctata was not resolved. Expand
The phylogenetic placement and biogeographical origins of the New Zealand stick insects (Phasmatodea)
TLDR
These analyses show that Lanceocercata and their sister group, the Stephanacridini, probably diverged from their South American relatives, the Cladomorphinae, as a result of the separation of Australia, Antarctica and South America. Expand
Revision of the Iberian stick insect genus Leptynia Pantel and description of the new genus Pijnackeria
TLDR
Morphological, karyological and molecular investigations concordantly revealed that considerable differences exist between the two complexes, each representing a monophyletic group, and a splitting of the genus Leptynia is felt necessary. Expand
Mantophasmatodea and phylogeny of the lower neopterous insects
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the polyneopteran orders representing a broad range of their phylogenetic diversity and including the recently described Mantophasmatodea, which supports a sister taxon relationship between the newly described Mantophonodea and Grylloblattodea. Expand
Fewer species of Argosarchus and Clitarchus stick insects (Phasmida, Phasmatinae): evidence from nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequence data
TLDR
It is concluded that Argosarchus and Clitarchus have each been over‐split and actually consist of a single morphologically polymorphic, facultative parthenogenetic species. Expand

TLDR
A new genus and species of the basal euphasmatodean lineage Aschiphasmatidae is described and figured from the Philippines and displays interesting features, including a cone-shaped vertex and the well-differentiated boundary between the metanotum and the first abdominal tergum. Expand

Combined cytological and morphological analyses of stick insects belonging to the genus Sipyloidea Brunner from a limited geographical area in southern and south-western Australia serve to identifyExpand
Cladistic, biogeographic and environmental niche analysis of the species of Agathemera Stål (Phasmatida, Agathemeridae)
TLDR
The endemic southern South American genus Agathemera Stal, which contains eight species, is analyzed in a cladistic context in order to establish a hypothesis regarding the phylogenetic relationships among its species and to find the most important variables that explain its present distribution.

TLDR
Conlephasma can represent an interesting taxon for studies on the evolution of the stick and leaf insects and could indicate affinities with Necrosciinae or Pseudophasmatinae. Expand
Exploring the molecular phylogeny of phasmids with whole mitochondrial genome sequences.
TLDR
This work collected 13 phasmatodean species, sequenced their mitochondrial genomes, and recovered their molecular phylogeny, and found the position of Neohirasea was quite different from the conventional taxonomic systems, thus challenging the previously assumed monophyly of the subfamily Lonchodinae.
