On the polymorphic meadow spittlebug, Philaenus spumarius (L.) (Homoptera: Cercopidae).
TLDR
This homopteran insect shows very high habitat diversity and therefore has a wide global distribution and Adults exhibit a heritable colour/pattern polymorphism on the dorsal surface throughout its range. Expand
Limited polymorphism in two spittlebugs, Philaenus spumarius (Linnaeus) and P. signatus Melichar (Hemiptera: Cercopidae), in island populations from Western Turkey
TLDR
Stochastic events such as random genetic drift may be the reason for shaping the polymorphism of these two sympatric species in Gökçeada and the absence of pigmentation alleles possibly indicates the founder effect. Expand
Differential survival and reproduction in colour forms of Philaenus spumarius give new insights to the study of its balanced polymorphism
TLDR
Ptaenus spumarius (Linnaeus) (Hemiptera, Aphrophoridae) shows a widely studied dorsal colour polymorphism with several described phenotypes whose variation in their occurrence and frequency, as well as their maintenance across time, have been reported. Expand
New Mitochondrial and Nuclear Evidences Support Recent Demographic Expansion and an Atypical Phylogeographic Pattern in the Spittlebug Philaenus spumarius (Hemiptera, Aphrophoridae)
TLDR
Unexpected patterns of recent gene-flow events between Mediterranean peninsulas, a close relationship between Iberia and North Africa, as well as high levels of genetic diversity being maintained in northern Europe were found. Expand
The colour/pattern polymorphism of Philaenus spumarius (Hemiptera: Cercopidae) in the north-western Black Sea region of Turkey
TLDR
The heritable elytral colour/pattern polymorphism of Philaenus spumarius in north-western Black Sea region of Turkey was investigated and the predominant phenotype was TYP in females and males followed by POP in males. Expand
POPULATION GENETICS OF PHILAENUS SPUMARIUS ON THE ISTRANCA MOUNTAINS: II. POLYMORPHISM AND PHENOTYPE FREQUENCY
TLDR
Genetically controlled colour polymorphism of the meadow spittlebug Philaenus spumarius in the populations of the Istranca Mountains was investigated and melanic phenotypes were limited to the female sex only. Expand
Lagged effects of North Atlantic Oscillation on spittlebug Philaenus spumarius (Homoptera) abundance and survival
TLDR
It is shown that winter NAO has a considerable lagged effect on April and May temperature; even this second lagging effect contributes to differences in humidity. Expand
A potential role for overdominance in the maintenance of colour variation in the Neotropical tortoise beetle, Chelymorpha alternans
TLDR
Differences in offspring survival appear to play a greater role in maintaining polymorphisms than nonrandom mating in species, and strong evidence for random mating as a function of colour pattern is found. Expand
Population structure, adaptation and divergence of the meadow spittlebug, Philaenus spumarius (Hemiptera, Aphrophoridae), revealed by genomic and morphological data
TLDR
The population genomics approach provided new insights into the patterns of divergence, gene flow and adaptation in these spittlebugs and led to several hypotheses that require further local investigation. Expand
