The phylogenetic relationships of bark lice and parasitic lice (Insecta: Psocodea) have been studied in a number of recent molecular phylogenetic analyses based on DNA sequences. Many of these studies have focused on the position of parasitic lice within the free‐living bark lice. However, fewer such studies have examined the relationships among major groups of free‐living bark lice and their implications for classification. In this study we focus on the infraorder Caeciliusetae, a large group… 
Phylogeny of the suborder Psocomorpha: congruence and incongruence between morphology and molecular data (Insecta: Psocodea: ‘Psocoptera’)
The largest suborder of bark lice (Insecta: Psocodea: ‘Psocoptera’) is Psocomorpha, which includes over 3600 described species. We estimated the phylogeny of this major group with family-level taxon
Systematic Position of the Enigmatic Psocid Family Lesneiidae (Insecta: Psocodea: Psocomorpha), With Description of Two New Species
TLDR
The systematic placement of an enigmatic psocid family restricted to Africa, Lesneiidae, was estimated by using a multiple gene data set and the relationships among these (sub)families and LesneIidae were ambiguous or questionable, showing the necessity of further investigations for elucidating their relationships and validating the status of these families.
Systematic Position of the Enigmatic Psocid Family
TLDR
There appears to be a tight association between the reproductive biology and morphological specialization of this group, and the relationships among these (sub)families and Lesneiidae were ambiguous or questionable, showing the necessity of further investigations.
The bark louse family Stenopsocidae (Psocodea: Psocomorpha) newly recorded from Laos, with description of three new species.
The order Psocodea is poorly known from Laos. Here three new species of Stenopsocidae were described, i.e., Malostenopsocus lacteus sp. nov., Stenopsocus abnomis sp. nov., and Stenopsocus wangi sp.
Mining Ultraconserved Elements From Transcriptome and Genome Data to Explore the Phylogenomics of the Free-living Lice Suborder Psocomorpha (Insecta: Psocodea)
TLDR
The utility of a bait set designed specifically for parasitic lice belonging to suborder Troctomorpha to extract UCE loci from transcriptome and WGS data of 55 bark louse species is evaluated and the phylogenetic relationships within Psocomorpha are explored with Maximum Likelihood and coalescent-based analysis.

Multiple origins of parasitism in lice
TLDR
It is inferred that parasitism of vertebrates arose twice independently within Psocodea,once in the common ancestor of Amblycera and once in theCommon ancestor of all other parasitic lice.
Molecular systematics of the suborder Trogiomorpha (Insecta: Psocodea: ‘Psocoptera’)
TLDR
A new classification scheme for the Trogiomorpha is proposed, based on sequence data and morphological observations, and character states previously used to diagnose Psocathropetae are shown to be plesiomorphic.
Phylogeny and higher classification of suborder Psocomorpha (Insecta: Psocodea: 'Psocoptera')
TLDR
Based on the results of the cladistic analysis, a higher classification for Psocomorpha is proposed and six infraorders (two new − Archipsocetae, HemipsOCetae − and the four aforementioned) are recognized.
Phylogenetic position of Phthiraptera (Insecta: Paraneoptera) and elevated rate of evolution in mitochondrial 12S and 16S rDNA.
SYSTEMATIC STUDY OF AMPHIPSOCIDAE IN JAPAN (PSOCODEA: 'PSOCOPTERA': CAECILIUSETAE), WITH COMMENTS ON HIGHER CLASSIFICATION WITHIN THE FAMILY
TLDR
The Japanese species of Amphipsocidae were revised and the last species had once been considered as an invalid synonym of Kodamaius brevicornis Okamoto, 1907, but they were considered here as distinct species.
Molecular systematics of Psocomorpha (Psocoptera)
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships within the suborder Psocomorpha were investigated using DNA sequences from the nuclear 18S and mitochondrial 16S, 12S and cytochrome oxidase I genes and found no evidence that Hemipsocidae should be removed from Psocetae.
Phylogeny and classification of the Psocodea, with particular reference to the lice (Psocodea: Phthiraptera)
TLDR
All lice are believed to have evolved under environmental constraints similar to those operating today, and the origin of the lice is dated as the Cretaceous, but the host of the ancestor of the order is not identified.
ON THE RELATIONSHIPS OF THE CALOPSOCIDAE (PSOCOPTERA)
TLDR
The conclusion being that the Calopsocidae are closely related to the Pseudocaeciliaceae and not to the Caeciliidae as indicated in the currently accepted classification.

TLDR
Nucleotide sequence data from the 18S small subunit rRNA gene of insects are aligned manually with reference to secondary structure, and analyzed under Bayesian phylogenetic methods with both GTR+I+G and doublet models in MrBayes.
