Phylogenetic position of the extinct insect family Vetanthocoridae (Heteroptera) in Cimiciformes
Two cladistic analyses were conducted to confirm the phylogenetic position of the fossil family Vetanthocoridae within Cimiciformes and Cimicoidea, and forms a monophyletic group with the extant flower bugs.
Correlated evolution and Bayesian divergence time estimates of the Cimicoidea (Heteroptera: Cimicomorpha) reveal the evolutionary history
It is determined that evolutionary changes in morphological characters were dependent on habitat selection and proposed evolutionary historical hypotheses for the Cimicoidea are proposed.
Revisiting habitat and lifestyle transitions in Heteroptera (Insecta: Hemiptera): insights from a combined morphological and molecular phylogeny
The results indicate that aquatic and semi‐aquatic true bugs invaded these habitats three times independently from terrestrial habitats in contrast to a recent hypothesis, and suggest that the most recent common ancestor of Heteroptera was predacious.
First Mesozoic Microphysidae (Hemiptera): A New Genus and Species in Late Cretaceous Amber from Canada
A new genus and species of microphysid bug is described and illustrated from two individuals preserved in Late Cretaceous amber from Alberta, Canada, suggesting that those taxa may not be distinct and are in need of cladistic analysis.
Phylogenetic relationships within the Cimicomorpha (Hemiptera: Heteroptera): a total‐evidence analysis
Within the Miridae, several inclusive monophyletic groups at the subfamily/tribal level are more or less consistently recognized when molecular data are included; however, the interrelationships of the subfamilies vary substantially across the range of analyses.
Systematic methods, fossils, and relationships within Heteroptera (Insecta)
General arguments against the use of phenetic methods in palaeontology, and ad hoc approaches under the guise of cladistics, are offered, with the conclusion that rigorous cladistic analyses are a prerequisite to testable conclusions concerning the placement of fossil and Recent taxa.
Do larvae evolve the same way as adults in Tingidae (Insecta: Heteroptera)?
There is a global tendency for larval traits to evolve convergently from simple to complex, as suggested for adults, and an evolutionary pattern of shapes among Tingidae emerges from this study.
A taxonomic revision of the family Velocipedidae Bergroth, 1891 (Insecta: Heteroptera)
The Indo-Papuan family Velocipedidae Bergroth, 1891 (Heteroptera) is revised; a new genus, 19 new species and four new subspecies are described. Costomedes gen. nov. (type species: C. gressitti spec.
