Understanding the origin and diversification of organisms requires a good phylogenetic estimate of their age and diversification rates. This estimate can be difficult to obtain when samples are limited and fossil records are disputed, as in Dictyoptera. To choose among competing hypotheses of origin for dictyopteran suborders, we root a phylogenetic analysis (~800 taxa, 10 kbp) within a large selection of outgroups and calibrate datings with fossils attributed to lineages with clear… Expand
Earliest record of fossil insect oothecae confirms the presence of crown‐dictyopteran taxa in the Late Triassic
TLDR
Two new oothecae ichnospecies found in a Carnian deposit from Argentina are reported, moving the origin of this specialized reproductive strategy back by 100 million years and providing direct fossil evidence that can inform future research on the origins and timing of diversification of the Dictyoptera. Expand
Wing morphology of a new Cretaceous praying mantis solves the phylogenetic jigsaw of early‐diverging extant lineages
The extremely derived morphology and behaviour of extant praying mantises combined with a scarce record of fossil relatives introduce significant challenges to tracing their evolution from PalaeozoicExpand
A Cretaceous-aged Palaeotropical dispersal established an endemic lineage of Caribbean praying mantises
TLDR
This study focuses on three Antillean endemic praying mantis genera, Callimantis, Epaphrodita and Gonatista, to determine their phylogenetic placement and geographical origins and recovered the three genera as a monophyletic lineage among Old World groups, which was supported by molecular and morphological evidence.

Revising dating estimates and the antiquity of eusociality in termites using the fossilized birth–death process
Deciphering the timing and tempo of lineage diversification of organisms has greatly benefited from advances in Bayesian phylogenetic analyses using morphological data. Those advances, however, haveExpand
Transoceanic Dispersal and Plate Tectonics Shaped Global Cockroach Distributions: Evidence from Mitochondrial Phylogenomics
TLDR
A phylogenetic estimate of all extant cockroach families is presented, as well as a timescale for their evolution, based on the complete mitochondrial genomes of 119 cockroach species, and tentative support for vicariance through plate tectonics within and between several major lineages is found. Expand
An integrative phylogenomic approach illuminates the evolutionary history of cockroaches and termites (Blattodea)
TLDR
The first nuclear phylogenomic study of termites and cockroaches with a thorough approach to divergence time analysis, identification of endosymbionts, and reconstruction of ancestral morphological traits and behaviour shows that most subgroups of Blattodea evolved in the Cretaceous. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Blaberidae (Dictyoptera, Blattodea), with implications for taxonomy and evolutionary scenarios
TLDR
In-depth signal analyses should be performed to better understand molecular evolution and its consequence on tree reconstruction for this group of cockroaches, and new markers should be searched for, especially to decipher deeper relationships in Blaberidae. Expand
Fossil calibrations for the arthropod Tree of Life
TLDR
A series of rigorously vetted calibration fossils for arthropod evolutionary history, taking into account recently published guidelines for best practice in fossil calibration are presented, resulting in 80 fossil calibrations for 102 clades. Expand

Soil‐burrowing cockroaches (Blaberidae: Geoscapheinae) are large insects endemic to Australia. Originally thought to represent a monophyletic group, these enigmatic species have in fact evolvedExpand

Phylogeny of cockroaches (Insecta, Dictyoptera, Blattodea), with placement of aberrant taxa and exploration of out‐group sampling
TLDR
The phylogeny of cockroaches is addressed using DNA sequence data from a broad taxon sample of Dictyoptera and other non‐endopterygotan insect orders, and Lamproblattidae was recovered as sister to Polyphagidae, consistent with the traditional placement. Expand
Reconstructing the origins of praying mantises (Dictyoptera, Mantodea): the roles of Gondwanan vicariance and morphological convergence
TLDR
It is found that major mantis lineages diverged prior to and during the isolation of geographical regions and subsequent ecomorphic specializations within these regions may have led to convergences in morphology. Expand
The phylogeny of termites (Dictyoptera: Isoptera) based on mitochondrial and nuclear markers: Implications for the evolution of the worker and pseudergate castes, and foraging behaviors.
TLDR
The data support a traditional hypothesis of foraging behavior, in which the evolutionary transition from a one-piece type to a separate life type occurred through an intermediate behavioral form. Expand
Evidence for Carboniferous origin of the order Mantodea (Insecta: Dictyoptera) gained from forewing morphology
TLDR
The homology statement implies that the total-group Mantodea arose as soon as the Late Carboniferous, i.e. about 175 million years earlier than previously estimated, suggesting a survivorship of several main Pterygota lineages at the end-Permian extinction event higher than previously expected. Expand
Phylogeny of Mantodea based on molecular data: evolution of a charismatic predator
TLDR
The ancestral predatory condition as generalist hunting is reconstructed, with three independent shifts to cursorial hunting and one shift to ambush hunting, associated with the largest radiation of mantid species. Expand
Identifying possible sister groups of Cryptocercidae+Isoptera: a combined molecular and morphological phylogeny of Dictyoptera.
TLDR
It is suggested that wood-feeding, and the resultant need to conserve nitrogen, may have been an important factor in the development of termite eusociality. Expand
The phylogenetic system of Mantodea (Insecta: Dictyoptera)
TLDR
It is shown that many morphological characters, e.g. the head processes, enlarged lateral lobes of the pronotum, lobes on the legs and on the abdomen, evolved convergently several times during the evolution of the praying mantises (Mantodea). Expand
Termites (Isoptera): Their Phylogeny, Classification, and Rise to Ecological Dominance
TLDR
The first phylogeny of termite lineages using exemplar Cretaceous, Tertiary, and Recent taxa was presented, revealing extensive grades of stem-group taxa and the divergence of some modern families in theCretaceous. Expand
Relationships among the major lineages of Dictyoptera: the effect of outgroup selection on dictyopteran tree topology
TLDR
The internal dictyopteran relationships differed in the position of several taxa of interest, including Cryptocercus, Polyphaga, Periplaneta and Supella, providing further evidence that the choice of both outgroup and ingroup taxa greatly affects tree topology. Expand

TLDR
It is indicated that cockroaches are a monophyletic group, whose sister group is Mantoidea, and the phylogeny inferred here does not support a close relationship between C. punctulatus and M. darwiniensis. Expand
