The order Thysanoptera (Paraneoptera), commonly known as thrips, displays a wide range of behaviours, and includes several pest species. The classification and suggested relationships among these insects remain morphologically based, and have never been evaluated formally with a comprehensive molecular phylogenetic analysis. We tested the monophyly of the suborders, included families and the recognized subfamilies, and investigated their relationships. Phylogenies were reconstructed based upon… 

Morphological phylogeny of Thripidae (Thysanoptera : Terebrantia)

This analysis was used to reconstruct the ancestral feeding habits of Thripidae, with the result that leaf-feeding is recognised as ancestral within this family, and flower-feeding derived.

Molecular Studies of Relationships and Identifications Among Insects of the Subfamily Panchaetothripinae (Thysanoptera, Thripidae)

The Panchaetothripinae comprises 42 genera and 146 species of leaf-feeding thrips, some of which are horticultural pests, and maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference confirmed monophyly of each genus with strong support.

Phylogenetic Analysis of the New World Family Heterothripidae (Thysanoptera, Terebrantia) based on Morphological and Molecular Evidence

It is concluded that additional morphological and molecular data would be desirable before revising the classification of Heterothripidae, because of the uncertainty in the monophyly of this group.

A Comprehensive Phylogeny ofTettigoniidae (Orthoptera: Ensifera) Reveals Extensive Ecomorph Convergence and Widespread Taxonomic Incongruence

The first comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of katydids based on five molecular markers based on 18S r DNA, 28S rDNA, cytochrome c oxidase II, wingless, and histone 3 is presented, finding that many of the characters that delineate the subfamilies are convergent, and in many cases biogeography is a better predictor of relationships than taxonomy.

Monophyletic clades of Macaranga-pollinating thrips show high specificity to taxonomic sections of host plants

Results suggest a closely matched diversification of pollinating thrips with Macaranga trees, which adds a novel type of association to thrips pollinator–plant interactions, which have been so far documented as single-species interactions or generalist thrips species visiting multiple plant taxa.

Phylogenomics and the evolution of hemipteroid insects

The results indicated that thrips (Thysanoptera) are the closest living relatives of true bugs and allies (Hemiptera) and that hemipteroid insects started diversifying before the Carboniferous period, over 365 million years ago.

Inventory of Philippine Thrips (Insecta: Order Thysanoptera)

There are 79 endemic species in the Philippines and the following species are potential predators of mites, scale insects, plant-feeding thrips, and coffee berry borer.

Gene arrangement, phylogeny and divergence time estimation of mitogenomes in Thrips

This study is the first largest effort to provide the new insights into the mitogenomic features, gene arrangement, phylogeny and divergence time estimation of thrips belonging to the order Thysanoptera.



The Thrips and Frankliniella genus-groups: the phylogenetic significance of ctenidia

The two largest groups of species in the Thripidae, the Thrips and Frankliniella genus-groups, are not closely related, judging from the different chaetotaxy of the abdomen and head, but these two groups are important because they include most of the recognised pest species.

Phylogenetic relationships within the genus Cranothrips (Thysanoptera, Melanthripidae) with consideration of host associations and disjunct distributions within the family

The optimal tree obtained from discrete characters alone was similar to the tree resulting from total evidence, and for most groups, the support values resulting from all the evidence analysis were higher than those obtained from the discrete‐only analysis.

The classification of Terebrantia (Insecta) into families

Abstract The Order Terebrantia is now reorganized into 28 families in 6 superfamilies, indicating the phyletic lineages of the various groups. Interpretation of their phylogenetic relationships is

Phylogenetic relationships between the families of recent Thysanoptera (Insecta)

The Phlaeothripidae are either derived independently from Protothysanoptera, or else are the sister-group of the Thripidae, the most specialized family of Terebrantia.

Phylogenetic analysis of paraneopteran orders (Insecta: Neoptera) based on forewing base structure, with comments on monophyly of Auchenorrhyncha (Hemiptera)

The present analysis suggested a monophyletic Auchenorrhyncha, and reduction of the proximal median plate was considered as an autapomorphy of this clade.

So many thrips – so few tospoviruses ?

Questions are raised concerning where, when, how, and how often the thrips/ tospovirus associations originated.

The insect order Tysanoptera: Classification versus systematics

Two widely different classifications of the insect order Thysanoptera are discussed; an essentially phylogenetic system recognizing nine families in two suborders, and an essentially phenetic system

Thysanoptera phylogeny - the morphological background

This paper attempts to set out hypotheses of relationships between the family groups of the insect Order Thysanoptera, based on defined apomorphies, for future testing by molecular methods.

The Phylogeny of the Extant Hexapod Orders

A well‐resolved and robust cladogram of ordinal relationships is produced with the topology of crustacea.

An outline of higher-level classification and survey of taxonomic richness

For the kingdom Animalia, 1,552,319 species have been described in 40 phyla in a new evolutionary classification. Among these, the phylum Arthropoda alone represents 1,242,040 species, or about 80%
