The genus Phasmotaenia Navas, 1907 (type-species: Taeniosoma sanchezi Bolivar, 1897) is currently known only from the Philippine Islands and Taiwan, but here shown to extend eastwards as far as to the Solomon Islands, Northern New Guinea and even Fiji. A taxonomic review of the genus, and updated keys to the species are presented. The type-species of Phasmotaenia Navas, 1907, P. sanchezi (Bolivar, 1897) from Luzon, Philippines is shown to have been misinterpreted by previous authors. This has… 
The phylogenetic placement and biogeographical origins of the New Zealand stick insects (Phasmatodea)
TLDR
These analyses show that Lanceocercata and their sister group, the Stephanacridini, probably diverged from their South American relatives, the Cladomorphinae, as a result of the separation of Australia, Antarctica and South America.
The types of Phasmida in the Natural History Museum, London, UK.
Type specimens of 437 Phasmida taxa have been located in the Natural History Museum, London (NHMUK, formerly BMNH), including 480 primary types of 372 taxa. Taxa with types are listed alphabetically
A second view on the evolution of flight in stick and leaf insects (Phasmatodea)
TLDR
The evolutionary history of wings in Phasmatodea is explored and it is demonstrated that the disjunct distribution of ocelli substantiates the hypothesis on their regain and thus on trait reacquisition in general.
