Seventy-two morpho-anatomical characters were examined in 221 genera belonging to the families Blattidae, Polyphagidae, Blattellidae, and Blaberidae. They were cladistically analyzed and polarized using two mantids and two termites. As no autapomorphies of the family Blattellidae were found, the constituent subfamilies were used as terminal taxa together with other families. Three trees were found (CI = 0.81 and RI = 0.88, without autapomorphies) that differed only by the position of… Expand
A phylogenetic analysis of Dictyoptera ( Insecta ) based on morphological characters
A cladistic analysis of Dictyoptera is presented based on a data set comprising 27 ingroup taxa and 175 characters from morphology and life history (3 relating to symbiotic relationships). The focusExpand
Molecular phylogeny of cockroaches (Blattaria) based on mitochondrial COII gene sequences
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships among five cockroach families using seventeen species, were estimated based on the DNA sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit II (COII) gene and indicated that Polyphagidae and Cryptocercidae are closely related to each other, and that these two groups are a sister group to the remainingcockroach families. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Blaberidae (Dictyoptera, Blattodea), with implications for taxonomy and evolutionary scenarios
TLDR
In-depth signal analyses should be performed to better understand molecular evolution and its consequence on tree reconstruction for this group of cockroaches, and new markers should be searched for, especially to decipher deeper relationships in Blaberidae. Expand
Phylogeny of cockroaches (Insecta, Dictyoptera, Blattodea), with placement of aberrant taxa and exploration of out-group sampling
TLDR
The phylogeny of cockroaches is addressed using DNA sequence data from a broad taxon sample of Dictyoptera and other non-endopterygotan insect orders, and Lamproblattidae is retained because of the limited support for this relationship and conflict with earlier morphology-based phylogenetic hypotheses. Expand
Phylogeny of cockroaches (Insecta, Dictyoptera, Blattodea), with placement of aberrant taxa and exploration of out‐group sampling
TLDR
The phylogeny of cockroaches is addressed using DNA sequence data from a broad taxon sample of Dictyoptera and other non‐endopterygotan insect orders, and Lamproblattidae was recovered as sister to Polyphagidae, consistent with the traditional placement. Expand
Reconstructing the phylogeny of Blattodea: robust support for interfamilial relationships and major clades
TLDR
Preliminary phylogenetic relationships among cockroaches based on five genes, combined with data from a recent study that examined these same genes from 49 species, resulted in significantly higher levels of support for a number of previously recognized groupings. Expand
New data on the subfamily Epilamprinae (Dictyoptera, Blaberidae) of the New World, with description of a new genus and a new species from Ecuador

An integrative phylogenomic approach illuminates the evolutionary history of cockroaches and termites (Blattodea)
TLDR
The first nuclear phylogenomic study of termites and cockroaches with a thorough approach to divergence time analysis, identification of endosymbionts, and reconstruction of ancestral morphological traits and behaviour shows that most subgroups of Blattodea evolved in the Cretaceous. Expand
Species Delimitation and Phylogenetic Relationships in Ectobiid Cockroaches (Dictyoptera, Blattodea) from China
TLDR
The molecular data and 6 cockroach fossil calibrations were used to obtain a preliminary estimate of the timescale of ectobiid evolution and the major subfamilies in the group were found to have diverged between ~125–110 Ma, and morphospecies pairs were find to have Diverged ~10 or more Ma. Expand
On cockroaches of the subfamily Epilamprinae (Dictyoptera: Blaberidae) from South India and Sri Lanka, with descriptions of new taxa.
The new genus Indoapterolampra, gen. nov. and two new species (I. rugosiuscula sp. nov. and Morphna lucida sp. nov.) are described. Rhabdoblatta praecipua (Walker, 1868) is removed from the synonymyExpand

Cockroaches of the Galápagos Islands, Ecuador, with descriptions of three new species (Insecta: Blattodea)
TLDR
Three species of cockroaches are described as new species on the Galapagos Islands and only Periplaneta australasiae, Symploce pallens, and Pycnoscelus surinamensis seem to have invaded native (undisturbed) habitats. Expand
Some monodontomerinae and megastigminae torymidae associated with cynipidae in spain hymenoptera
TLDR
A group of species belonging to the Ectobiinae is described in which the male genitalia show a reversed right-left asymmetry, and a new homology concept for the sclerites of Plectopterinae and Blaberidae is proposed. Expand
Revision of the Loboptera species of Morocco (Blattaria: Blattellidae: Blattellinae)
TLDR
The Moroccan species are treated and form a well defined group of closely related species (the maroccana group) which appears to be endemic to Morocco except for L. ovolobata which also reaches into western Algeria. Expand
Phylogeny of the Dictyoptera
TLDR
Arrangements within the termites are equivocal, with Termopsidae and Mastotermes darwiniensis possible as the relatively most primitive element of Isoptera. Expand

TLDR
Five genera of Panchlorinae are reviewed and the identification and subfamily placement of the 3 last-named genera were confused. Expand

TLDR
It is indicated that cockroaches are a monophyletic group, whose sister group is Mantoidea, and the phylogeny inferred here does not support a close relationship between C. punctulatus and M. darwiniensis. Expand
Revision of the Loboptera species of Spain (Blattaria: Blattellidae).
TLDR
The relevant structures for the discrimination of the species - supraanal plate and subgenital plate, paraproct and phallomere structures in the males, valves with associated sclerites and spermathecae in females - are described and depicted for all species. Expand

TLDR
Living species of the cockroach family Cryptocercidae have intestinal symbionts that are congeneric with some of the gut protozoa found in Isoptera, and by occasionally killing and consuming an intruder from the other group, gutprotozoa could have been acquired and exchanged between termites and cryptocercus or their ancestors.
