A key transition in the evolution of the insect suborder Caelifera (Orthoptera; Insecta) was from predominantly non-angiosperm-feeding basal lineages to the modern acridomorph fauna (grasshoppers and related insects). However, because of conflicts in the distribution of several complex morphological characters, the relationships of the presumed intermediates, and in particular of the superfamily Pneumoroidea, are presently unclear. We undertook a phylogenetic study of representatives of all of… CONTINUE READING
