Morphological Identification and DNA Barcoding of the Tropical Bed Bug Cimex hemipterus Fabricius (Hemiptera: Cimicidae) from Thrissur, Kerala, India

Morphological and morphometric characteristics along with molecular sequencing are asserted that the bed bugs collected from both places were Cimex hemipterus and the total percentage of variance reached 89.073% and 93.760%.

Phylogenetic and genetic diversity analyses of tropical bed bug Cimex hemipterus (F.) (Hemiptera: Cimicidae): a case report in indigenous (Orang Asli) Tribe Village

Genetic diversity analysis using CO1 sequences showed that the bed bugs population in RPS Kemar has two haplotypes and low nucleotide diversities, while only one haplotype was found for 16S sequences, indicate no nucleotide diversity.

Reproduction barrier between two lineages of bed bug (Cimex lectularius) (Heteroptera: Cimicidae)

The results support the existence of post-mating barriers and show reproductive isolation between two lineages of C. lectularius, andBat and human host adaptations can promote evolving of such barriers and can be product of alloxenic speciation.

Potential population growth and harmful effects on humans from bed bug populations exposed to different feeding regimes

Bed bugs can survive and grow even in locations with a limited blood supply, where bed bug persistence may be important for the continual spread of populations and the need for efficacious control measures.

Genetic Analysis of Bed Bug Populations Reveals Small Propagule Size within Individual Infestations but High Genetic Diversity Across Infestations from the Eastern United States

The results suggest that nearly all the studied infestations were started by a small propagule possibly consisting of a singly mated female and/or her progeny, or a female mated with multiple males that were highly related to her.

Detection of Arthropod-Borne Bacteria and Assessment of MALDI-TOF MS for the Identification of Field-Collected Immature Bed Bugs from Mauritania

Assessment of bed bug specimens collected from beddings in Mauritania suggested that MALDI-TOF MS is a reliable tool for species level identification of Cimex specimens, including immature specimens.

Phylogenetic analyses reveal bat communities in Northwestern Mexico harbor a high diversity of novel cryptic ectoparasite species

This study is the first systematic survey of bat ectoparasites in the Baja California peninsula, discovering highly genetically differentiated novel lineages compared to other parts of North America.

Morphometrics of the Tropical Bed Bug (Hemiptera: Cimicidae) From Cape Coast, Ghana

It is shown that possible subpopulations of this bed bug are being spread from Ghana, and the nymphal stages of C. hemipterus were distinguished by the length of the last three antennal segment and pronota width; such information contributes to the taxonomic knowledge of the species.

Sex differences in bedbug nymphs, Cimex lectularius

The angle of the pointedness of the abdomen to be a reliable sex marker in nymphal stage 5, as well as the shape of the 9th sternite, allowing rapid nymph sorting by sex are shown.

Morphological and Molecular Identification of Tropical Bed Bugs From Two Cities of the Pearl River Delta in China

It can be affirmed that bed bugs collected from Guangzhou and Foshan were C. hemipterus, and the morphological characteristics and mitochondrial DNA sequence data indicated that no significant difference was observed in the mean pronotum width-to-length ratio.
