Abstract Thirty-nine available family-group names are identified within the insect order Isoptera (termites). For all names the correct author, date, type genus, and combining stem are provided for the first time. This nomenclatural compilation is done to stabilize the usage of family- group names in the Isoptera in advance of a world catalog. Several problems of priority are identified and discussed. The little understood subfamily Foraminitermitinae is diagnosed; while generally believed by… Expand
Family-group names for termites (Isoptera), redux
TLDR
Forty-eight family-group names are identified for insects among the Isoptera (termites), representing a nearly 19% increase since the last compilation less than 10 years ago, including various updates from the original summary. Expand
TWO OVERLOOKED FAMILY-GROUP NAMES FOR FOSSIL TERMITES (ISOPTERA: MASTOTERMITIDAE)
TLDR
During the final phases of completing a new, annotated world catalog of the termites (Isoptera) two family-group names for termites were discovered that had been overlooked during prior accounts of such names, and the name Miotermitinae is formally placed into synonymy with Mastotermitidae (newsynonymy). Expand
Family-group names in Coleoptera (Insecta)
TLDR
A catalogue of 4887 family-group names based on 4707 distinct genera in Coleoptera is given, which recognizes as valid 24 superfamilies, 211 families, 541 subfamilies, 1663 tribes and 740 subtribes. Expand
Two New Termites in Baltic Amber (Isoptera)
TLDR
A new genus and species of primitive termite (Isoptera) is described and figured from the remains of an imago preserved in middle Eocene (Lutetian) Baltic amber and Heterotermes eocenicus Engel, new species, is described. Expand
Species groups in the genus Cubitermes (Isoptera: Termitidae) defined on the basis of enteric valve morphology
TLDR
Nine species groups are proposed here as species groups based on the morphologies of the enteric valve of Cubitermes Wasmann, 1906, including the number of spatulae at the downstream end of the primary cushions and the structure of the secondary cushions. Expand
Family-Group Names for Bees (Hymenoptera: Apoidea)
TLDR
The name Anthophila, as proposed by Latreille, is adopted for the bees as a whole and the suggested current usage of all available family-group names is appended. Expand
Family-Group Names for Snakeflies (Raphidioptera)
TLDR
The type genus and combining stem are identified for 22 family-group names for snakeflies, including the new subtribes Mongoloraphidiina and Ohmellina, and the higher classification of the order is briefly summarized. Expand

Phylogenetic position of the enigmatic termite family Stylotermitidae (Insecta : Blattodea)
TLDR
The systematic position of Stylotermitidae calls for additional studies of their biology, including their developmental pathways and pheromone communication, which have the potential to change the understanding of termite evolution. Expand
Termites (Isoptera): Their Phylogeny, Classification, and Rise to Ecological Dominance
TLDR
The first phylogeny of termite lineages using exemplar Cretaceous, Tertiary, and Recent taxa was presented, revealing extensive grades of stem-group taxa and the divergence of some modern families in theCretaceous. Expand
