Ce travail a pour but d'attirer l'attention sur la necessite d'etudier la structure du squelette du segment arthropodien selon l'axe dorso-ventral. Entre un tergum dorsal et un sternum ventral prennent place des pleures lateraux. Ceux-ci sont constitues de l'appendice, mais aussi de territoires situes au dessus de l'appendice, entre la subcoxa et le tergum, et dont la nature doit etre discutee. Il peut s'agir de territoires d'origine appendiculaire mais secondairement integres a la paroi, ou au… 

Les Molopina hypogés des Pyrénées avec la description d'une nouvelle espèce de Zariquieya Jeannel, 1924 d'Espagne (Insecta, Coleoptera, Carabidae, Pterostichini)

Morphological structure of the new species, especially male and female genitalia as well as the external morphology suggests that this carabid beetle should be included in the genus Zariquieya, created for a single species endemic of eastern Spanish Pyrenees.

What is the epipleurite? A contribution to the subcoxal theory as applied to the insect abdomen

The body plan of the insect abdomen underlines the morphological and functional importance of the subcoxa in its fundamental structure, but the study of the Hexapoda in general indicates the presence of a more proximal segment, the precoxa, which would belong to the groundplan but is more cryptic because it is often closely associated with the sub coxa and/or the paranotal lobe.

Evolution of the elytral venation and structural adaptations in the oldest Palaeozoic beetles (Insecta: Coleoptera: Tshekardocoleidae)

The oldest definitive beetle, Coleopsis archaica gen. et sp. nov., is described from the earliest Permian (Asselian or early Sakmarian) of Germany (Grügelborn/Saarland). Its elytral venation is

Male Genital Sclerites of Neuropterida: an Attempt at Homologisation (Insecta: Holometabola)

Primitive machilid (Archaeognatha) structures provide the basis for identification of the amazingly similar male genital sclerites of Raphidioptera and argue for deciphering the homologies via the gonocoxites and their corresponding styli and gonapophyses.

Embryonic development of Carabus insulicola (Insecta, Coleoptera, Carabidae) with special reference to external morphology and tangible evidence for the subcoxal theory

The egg morphology and successive changes in the developing embryos of the carabid ground beetle Carabus insulicola (Carabidae) are described based on light and scanning electron microscopy observations and provide tangible evidence for the subcoxal theory, that is, that thoracic pleura and sterna are derived from sub Coxal regions.

Phylogenetic relevance of the genital sclerites of Neuropterida (Insecta: Holometabola)

Results from holomorphological and recent molecular cladistic analyses of Neuropterida agree in supporting the sister‐group relationships between: (1) the Raphidioptera and the clade Megaloptera + Neuroptera, and (2) the suborder Nevrorthiformia and all other Neuroptera.

Embryological evidence substantiates the subcoxal theory on the origin of pleuron in insects

The subcoxal origin of the pleuron is demonstrated, the tergal origin of spiracles is suggested, and the wing proper originates exclusively from the tergum, whereas the wing hinge and direct muscles may be appendicular in origin, suggesting the dual origin (i.e., tergal plus appendicular origin) of wings.
