The scale insects (infraorder Coccomorpha) are the most morphologically specialised members of the Hemiptera. They form a monophyletic group within the suborder Sternorrhyncha, having one-segmented tarsi and a single claw (all other hemipterans have a double claw). They show extreme sexual dimorphism: the more-or-less sessile adult females are wingless and larviform, whereas the motile adult males mostly are winged and lack mouthparts. Within the Coccomorpha, 54 families are currently…

Taxon-specific ultraconserved element probe design for phylogenetic analyses of scale insects (Hemiptera: Sternorrhyncha: Coccoidea)

This study recovered the monophyly of neococcoids and characterized the phylogenetic relationships within and among families of scale insects at the genome level using an ultraconserved element probe set designed specifically for Coccoidea.
