In Philaenus spumarius (Homoptera), colour polymorphism is mainly determined by a series of allelic genes. The dominance and co-dominance relationships of the following seven alleles were analysed: T (trilineatus), M (marginellus), F (flavicollis-F), L (lateralis), C (flavicollis-C, gibbus and leucocephalus), O (quadrimaculatus, albomaculatus and leucophthalmus) and t (typicus). The colour phenotypes are indicated in brackets. On the basis of partly direct and partly indirect evidence, T… 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
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
Assessing genotype-phenotype associations in three dorsal colour morphs in the meadow spittlebug Philaenus spumarius (L.) (Hemiptera: Aphrophoridae) using genomic and transcriptomic resources
TLDR
The authors' data suggested that major loci, consisting of multi-genomic regions, may be involved in dorsal colour variation among the three dorsal colour morphs analysed, but no homology was found between the associated loci and candidate genes known to be responsible for coloration pattern in other insect species. Expand
Colour gene allele frequencies correlated with altitude of habitat in Philaenus populations
TLDR
It seems that pO is an allele favoured in habitats at high elevations above sea level, similar to what was noted in populations living in Norway and Finland. Expand
Family-level relationships of the spittlebugs and froghoppers (Hemiptera: Cicadomorpha: Cercopoidea)
TLDR
The results of this investigation suggest that the origins of the major spittlebug lineages probably coincided with the breakup of Pangaea and, subsequently, Gondwana, as well as major floristic diversification such as the rise of angiosperms. Expand
Ecology of the meadow spittlebug Philaenus spumarius in the Ajaccio region (Corsica) – I: spring
TLDR
The strong relationship between P. spumarius and C. monspeliensis could be used to monitor spittlebug populations, to limit/concentrate the means of insect control, or in an agronomic context to lure insects away from crops. Expand
Family‐level relationships of the spittlebugs and froghoppers (Hemiptera: Cicadomorpha: Cercopoidea)
TLDR
The first ever phylogenetic investigation of the higher‐level relationships within Cercopoidea is presented, suggesting four of the five described families are monophyletic and the origins of the major spittlebug lineages probably coincided with the breakup of Pangaea and, subsequently, Gondwana as well as major floristic diversification such as the rise of angiosperms.

INHERITANCE OF THREE DORSAL COLOR/PATTERN MORPHS IN SOME TURKISH PHILAENUS SPUMARIUS (HOMOPTERA: CERCOPIDAE) POPULATIONS
TLDR
A preliminary study of the Turkish populations revealed that the trilineatus phenotype is dominant over the marginellus and typicus/populi phenotypes in both sexes. 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
Molecular phylogeny and DNA barcoding in the meadow-spittlebug Philaenus spumarius (Hemiptera, Cercopidae) and its related species.
TLDR
The patterns of haplotype divergence at the mitochondrial gene cytochrome oxidase I (COI) found in this study suggest a postglacial western Europe and a eastern south-to-north colonization. Expand

CROSSING EXPERIMENTS WITH PHILAENUS SPUMARIUS (HOMOPTERA)
TLDR
In experiments performed by the present authors, females representing the colour forms marginella and leucophthalma were found to produce among their offspring daughters like their mother, in addition to males and females belonging to the colour form typica. Expand
Balanced Polymorphism in the Meadow Spittlebug, Philaenus spumarius
TLDR
A state of balanced polymorphism seems to exist in these populations of the meadow spittlebug, and possibly the relative frequency of the forms is determined by selection by predators. Expand
Area effects in Cepaea

TLDR
The snails Cepaea nemoralis and C. hortensis are remarkable for an extensive and stable polymorphism involving the colour and banding of the shell, but it is not clear that the area effects are caused by some form of selection, but the topography, geology and vegetation of the Marlborough Downs gives no clue to what this could be for banding.

Balanced Polymorphism in North American Populations of the Meadow Spittlebug, Philaenus spumarius (Homoptera: Cercopidae). 1. North American Morphs1
TLDR
The object of this study was to identify distinct phenotypes which could then be examined for genetic and distributional differences so as ultimately to allow a satisfactory explanation of the adaptive significance of the polymorphism in this species. Expand
The evidence for apostatic selection
TLDR
The evidence for apostatic selection is brought up to date, its application to Cepaea is discussed, and a reply to Carter's criticisms is replied to. Expand

TLDR
It follows from Clarke & S heppard’s discovery of certain rare mimics of Papilio dardanus that this is the greatest possible heterozygous advantage that can be acting on the modifiers. Expand
