We addressed the phylogeny of cockroaches using DNA sequence data from a broad taxon sample of Dictyoptera and other non‐endopterygotan insect orders. We paid special attention to several taxa in which relationships are controversial, or where no molecular evidence has been used previously: Nocticolidae, a family of small, often cave‐dwelling cockroaches, has been suggested to be the sister group of the predaceous Mantodea or of the cockroach family Polyphagidae; Lamproblatta, traditionally… Expand
Phylogeny of Dictyoptera: Dating the Origin of Cockroaches, Praying Mantises and Termites with Molecular Data and Controlled Fossil Evidence
TLDR
The authors' datings suggest that crown-Dictyoptera—and stem-mantises—would date back to the Late Carboniferous, a result compatible with the oldest putative fossil of stem-dictyopteran suborders, and suggests a scenario of replacement in carnivory among polyneopterous insects. 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
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
Complete mitochondrial genomes of two cockroaches, Blattella germanica and Periplaneta americana, and the phylogenetic position of termites
TLDR
It is proposed that termites should be treated as a superfamily (Termitoidea) of cockroaches and suggested that Polyphagoidea was the sister group of Termitoides in Blattaria and supported that the suborder Caelifera is more closely related to the Phasmatodea than to the sub order Ensifera of Orthoptera. 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
Reconstructing the phylogeny of Blattodea: robust support for interfamilial relationships and major clades
TLDR
Preliminary phylogenetic relationships among cockroaches based on five genes, combined with data from a recent study that examined these same genes from 49 species, resulted in significantly higher levels of support for a number of previously recognized groupings. Expand
Fossil calibrations for the cockroach phylogeny (Insecta, Dictyoptera, Blattodea), comments on the use of wings for their identification, and a redescription of the oldest Blaberidae
TLDR
This first thorough assessment of the fossil calibrations for divergence time estimation of cockroaches concludes that currently the best fossils to use for calibration of the cockroach tree are: Cretaholocompsa montsecana, “Gyna” obesa, Cariblattoides labandeirai, and Ectobius kohlsi. 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
Revision of the genus Attaphila (Blattodea: Blaberoidea), myrmecophiles living in the mushroom gardens of leaf-cutting ants
TLDR
The molecular result of Attaphila being closest to three particular blattellid genera, however, is conflictual from the morphological perspective, and the morphology of the male genitalia places the genus in the Blaberoidea. Expand
New predatory cockroaches (Insecta: Blattaria: Manipulatoridae fam.n.) from the Upper Cretaceous Myanmar amber
TLDR
A new extinct lineage Manipulatoridae (new family) of cockroaches from the Upper Cretaceous (Cenomanian) amber of Myanmar is described, which represents the first (of a total of 29 known worldwide) cockroach family reported exclusively from the Myanmar amber. Expand

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
Molecular phylogeny of cockroaches (Blattaria) based on mitochondrial COII gene sequences
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships among five cockroach families using seventeen species, were estimated based on the DNA sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit II (COII) gene and indicated that Polyphagidae and Cryptocercidae are closely related to each other, and that these two groups are a sister group to the remainingcockroach families.

Wood-feeding cockroaches as models for termite evolution (Insecta: Dictyoptera): Cryptocercus vs. Parasphaeria boleiriana.
TLDR
It is argued against any reasonable usage of P. boleiriana as a model for the early evolution of Isoptera or even of the clade Cryptocercus+Isoptera, as some other Blaberidae appear more useful as model-taxa-by-homoplasy for theEarly evolution of the CryptocERCus+ isoptera clade, as their brooding behavior is more elaborate.

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
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
A molecular phylogeny of the Odonata (Insecta)
TLDR
Several recent taxonomic changes at the genus level, based on morphology, were confirmed, but other morphology‐based taxonomies have misclassified taxa considered currently as Megapodagrionidae, Platycnemididae and Amphipterygidae and have underestimated the number of family‐level clades. Expand
