Abstract Korean populations of the genus Cryptocercus occur in forested mountains throughout South Korea. They live in monogamous associations in which parents care for their young in complex woody galleries. Single paired adults (23.2%) and one or both parents with their offspring (28.1%) were found most frequently in the field. Among single-parent families adult females (6.7%) were observed more frequently than adult males (1.4%). In families with single or both parents, the mean brood size… Expand
Life history and population dynamics of Korean woodroach (Cryptocercus kyebangensis) populations
TLDR
Young nymphs of C. kyebangensis have to reach at least 3rd or 4th instar to survive low temperature environment of winter and support the proposal on the number of instars of Park and Choe (2003c) based on field collections. Expand
Parental social environment alters development of nutritionally independent nymphs in Cryptocercus punctulatus (Dictyoptera: Cryptocercidae)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the parental social environment in Cryptocercus punctulatus modifies offspring development independently of the direct transfer of hindgut fluids and does so for more than 2 years after hatch. Expand
Repeated Copulation in the Wood-feeding Cockroach Cryptocercus punctulatus Does Not Influence Number or Development of Offspring
TLDR
It is unlikely that male-derived material benefits have driven the evolution of repeated copulation in C. punctulatus, and accumulating evidence suggests that prior to oviposition, repeatedCopulation may be rooted in sperm competition, but after the eggs are laid it may secure the continued paternal contribution of the male social partner.

Social biology of the wood-feeding cockroach genus Salganea (Dictyoptera, Blaberidae, Panesthiinae): did ovoviviparity prevent the evolution of eusociality in the lineage?
TLDR
The social biology of the wood-feeding genus Salganea (Blaberidae: Panesthiinae) is summarized, showing long term, biparental care that includes the defense and feeding of young nymphs in Cryptocercus and ovoviviparous cockroaches. Expand
Living in Atlantic forest fragments : life habits, behaviour and colony structure of the cockroach Monastria biguttata (Dictyoptera, Blaberidae, Blaberinae) in Espirito Santo, Brazil
TLDR
The life habits, behaviour, and colony structure of the cockroach Monastria biguttata were studied during 2 years in remnants of the Brazilian Atlantic forest, and it appeared to be gregarious with only a slow spread during nymphal development. Expand
Hatching asynchrony, survivorship, and development in young colonies of the subsocial cockroach Cryptocercus punctulatus (Dictyoptera: Cryptocercidae).
We report details of egg size and hatch, and neonate weight gain, development, and survivorship in field-collected families of the subsocialwood-feeding cockroach Cryptocercus punctulatus. Eggs areExpand
Effects of parental care on offspring growth in the Korean wood-feeding cockroach, Cryptocercus kyebangensis
TLDR
The results suggest that the prolonged parental care evolved in Cryptocercus has a significant impact on offspring growth in Korean wood-feeding cockroaches. Expand
Evolution of Social Life in Wood-Eating Cockroaches (Cryptocercus spp.) : Effects of the Winter Climate on the Evolution of Subsociality
TLDR
It is hypothesize that harsh winter and length of winter might be one of the main causes driving the appearance of the delayed development and semelparous reproduction in Cryptocercus life history. Expand
Altricial Development in Subsocial Wood-Feeding Cockroaches
TLDR
It is found that eye development and cuticular pigmentation at hatching are correlated with social structure and decreased investment in both integumentary and ocular development in subsocial cockroaches parallels that seen in altricial vertebrates. Expand
Surface Activity of the Xylophagous Cockroach Cryptocercus punctulatus (Dictyoptera: Cryptocercidae) Based on Collections from Pitfall Traps
TLDR
The results suggest that sexual exclusivity cannot be assumed between paired individuals of this species, despite its key taxonomic position as a member of the xylophagous cockroach family that is sister group to termites. Expand

SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO FIELD DISTRIBUTION IN PANESTHIA CRIBRATA SAUSSURE (BLATTODEA: BLABERIDAE)
TLDR
Similarities in the behaviour of P. cribrata and the primitive Cryptocercus punctulatus are probably due to both species inhabiting the same kind of environment and thus are examples of convergent evolution. Expand
Effects of parental care on offspring growth in the Korean wood-feeding cockroach, Cryptocercus kyebangensis
TLDR
The results suggest that the prolonged parental care evolved in Cryptocercus has a significant impact on offspring growth in Korean wood-feeding cockroaches. Expand
Colony composition, protozoan transfer and some life history characteristics of the woodroach Cryptocercus punctulatus Scudder (Dictyoptera: Cryptocercidae)

TLDR
Field and laboratory evidence presented here shows that adult pairs of C. punctulatus do found colonies and that juveniles are generally not present to provide neonates with protozoan cysts, which may have contributed to the evolution of eusociality in termites. Expand
Life history and production of the stream-dwelling mayfly Habrophlebia vibrans Needham (Ephemeroptera: Leptophlebiidae)
TLDR
Habrophlebia vibrans in Quebec has a 2-year cycle, a feature unexpected in a small mayfly and unreported in Leptophlebiidae, where nymphs lived on gravel where they preferred larger particles and scanty detritus. Expand
Territorial behavior of the Korean wood-feeding cockroach, Cryptocercus kyebangensis
TLDR
Responses of residents to nymphal intruders depended on the head capsule size of the intruders, and resident nymphs frequently attacked intruders smaller than themselves, whereas they escaped or showed jerking behavior when they encountered larger intruders. Expand
Structure of female genitalia in the Korean wood‐feeding cockroach, cryptocercus kyebangensis
TLDR
Female genital morphology of Cryptocercus kyebangensis is described, focusing on the structural features of ovipositors at each developmental stage, and the first genital structures to appear in female nymphs. Expand
What does Cryptocercus kyebangensis, n.sp. (Dictyoptera: Blattaria: Polyphagidae) from Korea reveal about Cryptocercus evolution? A study in morphology, molecular phylogeny, and chemistry of tergal glands
TLDR
This new set of data for this East Asian species supports heterobathmy in the genus Cryptocercus and argues against the misleading “primitive taxon” concept. Expand

TLDR
Three new species of the wood roach, Cryptocercus (Blattodea: Cryptocerci dae), are described from the Appalachian mountains in the eastern United States on the basis of consistent differences in the DNA sequence of the two mitochondrial rRNA genes and chromosome number. Expand

TLDR
Brood removal studies show that the long term parental care exhibited by this woodroach can exact a cost in terms of future reproduction by delaying a second reproductive episode. Expand
