  • 2019
In this chapter, a general review on the fluorescence in terrestrial animals is made, including their systematic distribution, research history, fluorophores, and proposed functions for each group among several other aspects.
Blattaria - Cockroaches
Latiblattella avita sp. nov. (Blattaria: Ectobiidae) from the Eocene Kishenehn Formation, Montana, USA
The discovery of a fossil representative of this genus suggests that Latiblattella was more widely distributed in the Eocene, and documents the presence of rather derived representatives of the family Ectobiidae as early as the Middle Eocene.

    Advances in biochemical engineering/biotechnology
  • 2014
To facilitate future research in this field, the recent attempt, the bioluminescent organism DNA barcode initiative is introduced, which will provide resources for other scientists to efficiently identify unstudied biolUMinescent organisms, focus their biochemical and genetic research goals, and will generally promote biolauminescence as a field of scientific study.
Low diversity cockroach assemblage from Chernovskie Kopi in Russia confirms wing deformities in insects at the Jurassic/Cretaceous boundary

  • 2014
The Jurassic/Cretaceous (J/K) boundary is of great importance for the evolution of cockroaches as 6 (of the total of 27) families and orders of termites and mantodeans evolved from them during this
Completely preserved cockroaches of the family Mesoblattinidae from the Upper Jurassic-Lower Cretaceous Yixian Formation (Liaoning Province, NE China)
Abstract Although cockroaches were the dominant insects in various Paleozoic and Mesozoic insect assemblages, their general morphology was extremely conservative. One of the most common of them, the
Luminescent system of Lucihormetica luckae supported by fluorescence lifetime imaging
There is no way to prove the bioluminescence in the species that might be extinct, except for finding a living alight individual, and the validity of the L. luckae holotype thus lies on autofluorescence (AF) measurements.
Standards of evidence for bioluminescence in cockroaches
It is proposed that a single report is not sufficient to assume that all individuals of a species are bioluminescent, and it is argued that cuticle autofluorescence is not a reliable indicator of the presence of light-emitting cells beneath the cuticle.
Light-mimicking cockroaches indicate Tertiary origin of recent terrestrial luminescence
This work presents a geographical distribution of only the third order of luminescent insects—luminescent cockroaches, with all 13 known and/or herein reported new living species (based on deposited specimens), and shows that, for the first time, photo-characteristics of three examined species are nearly identical with those of toxic luminecent click beetles, which they mimic.
