ABSTRACT This paper outlines and discusses the fossil record of the Hemiptera – the fifth most diverse insect order. The diversity of these insects in comparison with the “Big Four” group is given, together with a short history of its classification. Updated information is presented about the fossil record of particular families, with a brief analysis. The main evolutionary traits of the major Hemiptera lineages are briefly described. The influence of biotic interactions with endosymbionts… 
Fossils reshape the Sternorrhyncha evolutionary tree (Insecta, Hemiptera)
TLDR
The new finding of very specialised sternorrhynchans found as inclusions in mid-Cretaceous amber from Kachin state (northern Myanmar), which represent another extinct lineage within this hemipteran suborder are reported and proposed to be placed in a new infraorder.
The first representative of Progonocimicidae (Hemiptera: Coleorrhyncha) from mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber
Abstract Gakasha calcaridentata gen. et sp. nov. representing Progonocimicidae: Cicadocorinae (moss bugs) is described. It is the first record of Coleorrhyncha in mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber and the
A new genus and species of Perforissidae (Hemiptera: Fulgoromorpha) from mid-Cretaceous Kachin amber
TLDR
A new genus and species of planthopper, Lanlakawa changdaensis gen. et sp.
A new species of the extinct family Minlagerrontidae (Insecta: Hemiptera: Cicadomorpha) from mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber
Abstract The extinct family Minlagerrontidae bears unusual morphological characteristics and includes two close species within one genus from mid-Cretaceous Burmese (Myanmar) amber. Herein, a third
The second leafhopper of the subfamily Ledrinae (Hemiptera, Cicadellidae) in mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber
TLDR
A new female ledrine in Kachin amber is described and illustrated, based on which a new genus and species, Duyana electronica gen. et sp.
First insects from the Manuherikia Group, early Miocene, New Zealand
TLDR
The first fossil insects from the Manuherikia Group, comprising three isolated wings recovered from leaf beds in the Dunstan Formation near Cromwell, Otago, are reported.
The youngest record of the leafhopper family Archijassidae in Kachin amber from the lowermost Upper Cretaceous of northern Myanmar (Cicadomorpha, Cicadelloidea)
Abstract The Mesozoic hemipteran family Archijassidae, known from the Late Triassic to the Early Cretaceous, is recorded as the ancestral group of mega-diverse leaf- and treehoppers. On the basis of
A tiny yuripopovinid true bug (Hemiptera, Pentatomomorpha) from Cenomanian Burmese amber
TLDR
A new taxon in this amber biota possesses a very small body size as well as a series of other novel morphological characteristics, which is distinctly different from the type species of Caulisoculus and other yuripopovinids as well, further providing us new insights to the disparity of the Cretaceous YuripopOVinidae.
New fossil data and phylogenetic inferences shed light on the morphological disparity of Mesozoic Sinoalidae (Hemiptera, Cicadomorpha)
TLDR
Finds in the froghopper family confirm that the information from body structures, vital to understanding the biodiversity and evolutionary history of extinct insects, should not be ignored in palaeoentomological studies.
New Palaeontinidae (Insecta: Hemiptera) from the Lower Cretaceous of southern England
TLDR
Two new species of butterfly bug are described from the Lower Cretaceous of southern England, with the first complete hindwing of a palaeontinid from the UK and a narrower forewing and vein CuA bifurcating beyond the nodal line.

A lesser predilection for bugs : Hemiptera (Insecta) diversity in tropical rain forests
TLDR
The Hemiptera fauna of a moderately large and topographically diverse area of tropical rain forest in Sulawesi Utara, Indonesia is presented and the global estimates of 1.84–2.57 million species of insect are much lower than the 10–80 million predicted by Erwin and Stork from a study of tropical Coleoptera.
The systematics of the Hemiptera
TLDR
The main phylogenetic hypotheses for Hemiptera and its subgroups are reviewed and important references regarding catalogs and identification aids are provided for the major groups, making emphasis in recent online tools.
Overview of the Phylogeny , Taxonomy and Diversity of the Leafhopper ( Hemiptera : Auchenorrhyncha : Cicadomorpha : Membracoidea : Cicadellidae ) Vectors of Plant Pathogens
TLDR
New molecular phylogenetic and functional genomic tools and techniques may facilitate more rapid and extensive surveys of the microbiota associated with non-pest leafhoppers and promote more comprehensive approaches to the study of the evolution of leafhopper-pathogen-plant associations.
Evolutionary patterns in the armored scale insects and their allies (Homoptera: Coccoidea: Diaspididae, Phoenicococcidae, and Asterolecaniidae)
TLDR
The purpose of the present report is to offer a re-evaluation of the morphological diversity as it is at present interpretable from the chromosome studies of the armored scale insects.
A Preliminary Molecular Phylogeny of Planthoppers (Hemiptera: Fulgoroidea) Based on Nuclear and Mitochondrial DNA Sequences
TLDR
This work expands upon recent phylogenetic work using additional nuclear (18S and 28S) and novel mitochondrial (16S and cytb) markers and yielded robust phylogenetic trees containing Cixiidae and Delphacidae as the sister group to the remaining taxa.
CATALOGUE OF THE GENERA OF THE HEMIPTEROUS FAMILY APHIDÆ, WITH THEIR TYPICAL SPECIES, TOGETHER WITH A LIST OF THE SPECIES DESCRIBED AS NEW FROM 1885 TO 1905
TLDR
This instalment contained a list, without references, of the genera and species known to Lichtenstein, but, as will be seen from the following pages, a large number of names was omitted and some were misapplied.
Juraphididae, a new family of aphids and its significance in aphid evolution
TLDR
A revision of the Jurassic aphid family Genaphididae revealed that the type genus Genaphis did not have the characteristics usually attributed to this family, and a new family is included in the superfamily Palaeoaphidoidea.
Rooting down the aphid's tree – the oldest record of the Aphidomorpha lineage from Palaeozoic (Insecta: Hemiptera)
TLDR
The presence of very small Aphidomorpha in the Middle Permian contradicts the hypothesis of the ‘Lilliput effect’ that is presumed to have affected the insect fauna during the Early to Middle Triassic, after the end‐Permian crisis.
Co‐cladogenesis spanning three phyla: leafhoppers (Insecta: Hemiptera: Cicadellidae) and their dual bacterial symbionts
TLDR
Analysis of host and symbiont data sets support a congruent evolutionary history between sharpshooters, Sulcia and Baumannia and provide the first strong evidence for long‐term co‐inheritance of multiple symbionts during the diversification of a eukaryotic host.
New fossil insect order Permopsocida elucidates major radiation and evolution of suction feeding in hemimetabolous insects (Hexapoda: Acercaria)
TLDR
Identification of gut contents as angiosperm pollen documents an ecological role of Permopsocida as early pollen feeders with relatively unspecialized mouthparts and represents an evolutionary link documenting the transition from chewing to piercing mouthparts in relation to suction feeding.
