The higher‐level phylogeny of the order Hemiptera remains a contentious topic in insect systematics. The controversy is chiefly centred on the unresolved question of whether or not the hemipteran suborder Auchenorrhyncha (including the extant superfamilies Fulgoroidea, Membracoidea, Cicadoidea and Cercopoidea) is a monophyletic lineage. Presented here are the results of a multilocus molecular phylogenetic investigation of relationships among the major hemipteran lineages, designed specifically… 
Phylogenomics of Hemiptera (Insecta: Paraneoptera) based on mitochondrial genomes
TLDR
A phylogenomic study of Hemiptera is carried out, adding two new mitochondrial genomes of Peloridiidae (Coleorrhyncha) to those reported in GenBank, to complete the taxon sampling of all suborders and challenge the monophyly of ‘Homoptera’ and Auchenor rhyncha.
Phylogenomics of Auchenorrhyncha (Insecta: Hemiptera) using transcriptomes: examining controversial relationships via degeneracy coding and interrogation of gene conflict
TLDR
The results provide a generally well‐supported framework for future studies of auchenorrhynchan phylogeny and suggest that transcriptome sequencing is likely to be a fruitful source of phylogenetic data for resolving its clades, however, future work should account for the potential effects of GC content heterogeneity on relationships recovered in this group.
Deep Instability in the Phylogenetic Backbone of Heteroptera is Only Partly Overcome by Transcriptome-Based Phylogenomics
TLDR
Results highlight the instability of deep nodes that divide aquatic and other early-diverging lineages within the Heteroptera, suggesting that some relationships remain difficult to resolve even with large amounts of data.
Mitochondrial phylogenomics of Hemiptera reveals adaptive innovations driving the diversification of true bugs
TLDR
The phylogeny and evolutionary history of Hemiptera is elucidated and Ancestral character state reconstruction and divergence time estimation suggest that the success of true bugs (Heteroptera) is probably due to angiosperm coevolution, but key adaptive innovations facilitated multiple independent shifts among diverse feeding habits and multiple independent colonizations of aquatic habitats.
Phylogenomics of flavobacterial insect nutritional endosymbionts with implications for Auchenorrhyncha phylogeny
TLDR
Detailed phylogenetic analyses of Sulcia and related bacteria were performed to elucidate its position relative to other members of Phylum Bacteroidetes and the degree of congruence to the phylogeny of its auchenorrhynchous hosts, suggesting that analysis of Sulci phylogeny may contribute to resolution of contentious aspects of Auchen orrhyncha phylogeny.
Comparative phylogenetic analysis of bacterial associates in Pyrrhocoroidea and evidence for ancient and persistent environmental symbiont reacquisition in Largidae (Hemiptera: Heteroptera)
TLDR
Understanding of the evolution of symbiotic complexes in Hemiptera is contributed by characterizing bacterial associates of Pyrrhocoroidea focusing on the family Largidae and by constructing a phylogeny to establish evolutionary relationships of and within this group.
Application of RNA-seq for mitogenome reconstruction, and reconsideration of long-branch artifacts in Hemiptera phylogeny
TLDR
The results showed that the seven species representing the Aleyrodidae exhibit extremely long branches, and always cluster with long-branched outgroups, which lead to the failure of recovering a monophyletic Hemiptera in most analyses.
Mitogenomics of five Olidiana leafhoppers (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Coelidiinae) and their phylogenetic implications
TLDR
The phylogenetic tree of Cicadellidae is constructed using the maximum likelihood (ML) and Bayesian inference (BI) methods based on all valid mitogenome sequences and Interestingly, Olidiana was inferred as a paraphyletic group with strong support via both ML and BI analyses.

Family‐level relationships of the spittlebugs and froghoppers (Hemiptera: Cicadomorpha: Cercopoidea)
TLDR
The first ever phylogenetic investigation of the higher‐level relationships within Cercopoidea is presented, suggesting four of the five described families are monophyletic and the origins of the major spittlebug lineages probably coincided with the breakup of Pangaea and, subsequently, Gondwana as well as major floristic diversification such as the rise of angiosperms.
Molecular Phylogeny of Fulgoromorpha (Insecta, Hemiptera, Archaeorrhyncha). The Enigmatic Tettigometridae: Evolutionary Affiliations and Historical Biogeography
TLDR
Several parsimony‐based analyses using data sets composed of nucleotide sequences of 18S rDNAs (genes encoding 18SRRNAs) support a monophyletic Fulgoromorpha and depicts Tettigometridae as a relatively derived lineage in a monophysletic relationship with Tropiduchidae.
Molecular phylogeny of Cicadomorpha (Insecta: Hemiptera: Cicadoidea, Cercopoidea and Membracoidea): adding evidence to the controversy
TLDR
Internal relationships recovered within each superfamily shows evidence for the placement of Myerslopiidae as the sister group of the remaining Membracoidea, and the diversification of Epipygidae from within the possibly paraphyletic Aphrophoridae.
Paraphyly of Homoptera and Auchenorrhyncha inferred from 18S rDNA nucleotide sequences
TLDR
Morphological, palaeoentomological and eco‐evolutionary factors supporting the 18S rDNA‐based phylogenetic tree are discussed and four principal hemipteran clades are identified.
Phylogenetic analysis of paraneopteran orders (Insecta: Neoptera) based on forewing base structure, with comments on monophyly of Auchenorrhyncha (Hemiptera)
TLDR
The present analysis suggested a monophyletic Auchenorrhyncha, and reduction of the proximal median plate was considered as an autapomorphy of this clade.

Evaluation of relationships within the endemic Hawaiian Platynini (Coleoptera: Carabidae) based on molecular and morphological evidence.
TLDR
The combined analysis provides corroboration for biogeographic hypotheses, including colonization of Kauai by Hawaiian Platynini with subsequent dispersal and colonization along the island chain from Oahu to Maui Nui to Hawaii Island and incongruent area relationships among Eastern Molokai, West Maui, and Haleakala for two species triplets.
Reconstructing the origins of praying mantises (Dictyoptera, Mantodea): the roles of Gondwanan vicariance and morphological convergence
TLDR
It is found that major mantis lineages diverged prior to and during the isolation of geographical regions and subsequent ecomorphic specializations within these regions may have led to convergences in morphology.
The phylogeny of hexapod “orders”. A critical review of recent accounts
TLDR
The evidence for Hennig’s (1969) hierarchial classification of the higher hexapodan taxa is reviewed and additional data are considered, and the monophyletic nature of the order Blattopteroidea is considered firmly established.
