Abstract.  The hemipteran infraorder Cicadomorpha comprises the superfamilies Cicadoidea (cicadas), Cercopoidea (spittlebugs or froghoppers) and Membracoidea (leafhoppers and treehoppers). Earlier attempts to determine relationships among these three monophyletic lineages using either morphological or molecular data suffered from insufficient sampling (taxonomic and data) and problematic tree rooting, leading to discordant results. Presented here are phylogenetic reconstructions within… 

Family-level relationships of the spittlebugs and froghoppers (Hemiptera: Cicadomorpha: Cercopoidea)

The results of this investigation suggest that 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.

Family‐level relationships of the spittlebugs and froghoppers (Hemiptera: Cicadomorpha: Cercopoidea)

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.

Phylogenetic relationships among superfamilies of Cicadomorpha (Hemiptera: Auchenorrhyncha) inferred from the wing base structure

Morphology of the wing base structure in Cicadomorpha is examined and a sister‐group relationship between Cicadoidea and Cercopoidea was supported by three synapomorphies.

The phylogeny and revised classification of Machaerotidae, the tube‐making spittlebugs (Hemiptera: Auchenorrhyncha: Cercopoidea)

Results are presented of the first molecular phylogenetic investigation of Machaerotidae, examining relationships among the currently recognized subfamilies and tribes, as well as determining the phylogenetic placement of the genera Enderleinia Schmidt, Neuromachaerota Schmidt, Labramachaerota Bell & Cryan, and KyphomachaerOTA.

Phylogeny and classification of the leafhopper subfamily Eurymelinae (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae) inferred from molecules and morphology

Phylogenetic analysis of the globally distributed arboreal leafhopper subfamily Eurymelinae was conducted and suggested that the earliest divergences occurred in the Lower Cretaceous and that most major lineages of this group arose during theCretaceous.

Higher-level phylogeny of the insect order Hemiptera: is Auchenorrhyncha really paraphyletic?

A multilocus molecular phylogenetic investigation of relationships among the major hemipteran lineages is presented, designed specifically to address the question of Auchenorrhyncha monophyly in the context of broad taxonomic sampling across Hemiptera.

Overview of the Phylogeny , Taxonomy and Diversity of the Leafhopper ( Hemiptera : Auchenorrhyncha : Cicadomorpha : Membracoidea : Cicadellidae ) Vectors of Plant Pathogens

New molecular phylogenetic and functional genomic tools and techniques may facilitate more rapid and extensive surveys of the microbiota associated with non-pest leafhoppers and promote more comprehensive approaches to the study of the evolution of leafhopper-pathogen-plant associations.

Two ancient bacterial endosymbionts have coevolved with the planthoppers (Insecta: Hemiptera: Fulgoroidea)

The results indicate that the Betaproteobacterium Vidania is an ancient endosymbiont that infected the common ancestor of Fulgoroidea at least 130 million years ago and is likely to have codiversified with most lineages of planthopper-associated Vidania and Sulcia phylogenies.

The results of the combined data analyses grouped membracids into two well‐supported lineages, consistent with the following hypotheses: (1) the posterior pronotal process was derived and lost multiple times during the evolution of Membracidae; (3) maternal care evolved independently multiple times and may or may not have been preceded by the acquisition of ant mutualism.
