We updated the phylogenetic analysis of the evolution of habitat choice and social habits in the cockroach group of [Zetoborinae + Blaberinae + Gyninae + Diplopterinae] (Dictyoptera: Blaberidae) elaborated by Grandcolas (1998b). The original phylogenetic matrix was updated with new data obtained in the Brazilian Atlantic forest for the genera Parasphaeria and Zetobora (Zetoborinae), Monastria, Petasodes (Blaberinae) and Pycnoscelus (Pycnoscelinae) (one outgroup). These new data did not change… 

Taxonomy, phylogeography and distribution of the genus Monastria (Insects, Blattodea) in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest

The Brazilian Atlantic forest is one of the biodiversity hotspots with the richest species diversity and threat. It is located along the Brazilian Atlantic coast going south til Paraguay and

A Comparison of Behavioral Interactions in Solitary and Presocial Zetoborinae Cockroaches (Blattaria, Blaberidae)

The social behavior of five species of Zetoborinae cockroaches is compared with respect to inter-individual interactions of nymphs in the laboratory and it is shown that gregarious species accept closer contacts than does the solitary one.

The evolution of social behaviour in Blaberid cockroaches with diverse habitats and social systems: phylogenetic analysis of behavioural sequences

It is reported for the first time that nonstereotyped behavioural data are adequate for phylogenetic analyses: they are no more homoplastic than traditional data, and support several phylogenetic relationships that are discussed.

Miroblatta baai, a new very large cockroach species from caves of Borneo (Blattaria: Blaberidae)

A new species of the genus Miroblatta Shelford, 1906 is described from caves of Borneo in East Kalimantan, Indonesia, which is believed to be the first one recorded in the family Blaberidae.

The evolution of sociality in termites from cockroaches: A taxonomic and phylogenetic perspective.

To fully grasp the evolution of sociality, studies must obviously not restrict to eusocial lineages, and the need for natural history, taxonomic, and phylogenetic studies is emphasized.

The Conservation-Refugium Value of Small and Disturbed Brazilian Atlantic Forest Fragments for the Endemic Ovoviviparous Cockroach Monastria biguttata (Insecta: Dictyoptera, Blaberidae, Blaberinae)

Assessment of refugium value of small fragments to the conservation of one of the endemics of the Atlantic forest, the ovoviviparous cockroach Monastria biguttata, showed that this species was ubiquitous in large and small forest fragments, but never present in plantations or pastures.

Cockroach as the Earliest Eusocial Animal

The group of eusocial cockroaches makes termite morphotaxon polyphyletic, but also the erection of a new order for mastotermites and/or the inclusion of eUSocial, morphological cockroach within termites appears counterproductive, thus an example of such a general exception to the taxonomical procedure is provided.

Patterns of aggregation behaviour in six species of cockroach: comparing two experimental approaches

Compared aggregation behaviour in six cockroach species belonging to three groups: Eublaberus, Blaberus, and Gromphadorhina‐Princisia (all Blaberidae) revealed that blaberid clades clearly differed in their aggregation patterns.

Dyadic behavioural interactions in cockroaches (Blaberidae): ecomorphological and evolutionary implications

It was found that similarity in social interactions was related to species body shape, but not to ecology or phylogenetic relationships, and it was suggested that body shape plays an important role in the evolution of social behaviour.

The Evolutionary Interplay of Social Behavior, Resource Use and Anti-Predator Behavior in Zetoborinae+ Blaberinae+Gyninae+Diplopterinae Cockroaches: A Phylogenetic Analysis

Phylogenetic patterns of habitat use, social systems and anti-predator behavior are inferred and compared to previous evolutionary hypotheses and weakly corroborate the hypothesis of evolutionary relationship between resource use and social system.

Living in Atlantic forest fragments : life habits, behaviour and colony structure of the cockroach Monastria biguttata (Dictyoptera, Blaberidae, Blaberinae) in Espirito Santo, Brazil

The life habits, behaviour, and colony structure of the cockroach Monastria biguttata were studied during 2 years in remnants of the Brazilian Atlantic forest, and it appeared to be gregarious with only a slow spread during nymphal development.
