  title={Wallabicoris, New Genus (Hemiptera: Miridae: Phylinae: Phylini) from Australia, with the Description of 37 New Species and an Analysis of Host Associations},
  author={Randall T. Schuh and P. Pedraza},
Abstract A new genus, Wallabicoris, is described from Australia with 37 included species, all described as new. Host plants for 29 species of Wallabicoris are recorded in the families Asteraceae, Boraginaceae, Fabaceae (Papilionoideae), Lamiaceae, Rhamnaceae, Sterculiaceae, and Thymelaeaceae. Maps organized on the basis of host association are presented. A phylogenetic analysis based on 53 morphological characters is presented for all species and seven outgroups. An additional analysis for 25… 
Restiid-Feeding Semiini (Hemiptera: Miridae: Phylinae) from Western Australia: Description and Phylogenetic Analysis of the New Plant Bug Genus Restiophylus, n. gen
A cladistic analysis based on 55 morphological characters, four ingroup taxa, and 31 outgroup taxa is presented, providing evidence for the monophyly of this new genus and its placement in the tribe Semiini, and potentially as sister to the subtribe Exocarpocorina.
Myrtaceae-Feeding Phylinae (Hemiptera: Miridae) from Australia: Description and Analysis of Phylogenetic and Host Relationships for a Monophyletic Assemblage of Three New Genera
A cladistic analysis of a broader cross section of Australian Phylinae indicates that these taxa all belong to a monophyletic group, on the basis of pretarsal and male genitalic structures.

Myrtlemiris, a new genus and new species of Australian plant bugs (Insecta: Heteroptera: Miridae): systematics, phylogeny and host associations
A phylogenetic analysis establishes Myrtlemiris as monophyletic, defined by a broad apophysis on the left paramere, and identifies nine included species described as new to science.
Systematics, biodiversity, biogeography, and host associations of the Miridae (Insecta: Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Cimicomorpha).
Key morphological character systems are discussed and illustrated, including pretarsal structures, femoral trichobothria, external efferent system of the metathoracic glands, male and female genitalia, and molecular markers.
Revision of Parapseudosthenarus Schuh and Pseudosthenarus Poppius (Hemiptera: Miridae), a Monophyletic Group of Crotalarieae-Feeding Phylinae from South Africa with a Discussion of Hosts and Distributions
Extensive host documentation is presented, indicating that both insect genera are restricted to plant genera placed in the tribe Crotalarieae (Fabaceae: Faboideae), and that most species arerestricted to a single host genus; most Pseudosthenarus species breed only on the monophyletic Cape Group within CroTalarieae.
Determining the position of Diomocoris, Micromimetus and Taylorilygus in the Lygus-complex based on molecular data and first records of Diomocoris and Micromimetus from Australia, including four new species (Insecta : Hemiptera : Miridae : Mirinae)
This study is the initial step in understanding the Lygus-complex phylogeny; analyses with more taxa, more genes and morphology are needed to reveal the interrelationships within this group, and sister-group relationships of Australian taxa.
Plant bugs, plant interactions and the radiation of a species rich clade in south-western Australia: Naranjakotta, gen. nov. and eighteen new species (Insecta : Heteroptera : Miridae : Orthotylinae)
The discovery of a new clade of 18 new species of the plant bug subfamily Orthotylinae, which belong to Naranjakotta, gen. nov, is documents, which was analysed phylogenetically and found to be monophyletic.
Total‐evidence phylogenetic analysis and reclassification of the Phylinae (Insecta: Heteroptera: Miridae), with the recognition of new tribes and subtribes and a redefinition of Phylini
A reclassification of the subfamily based on the POY analysis is presented, recognizing nine tribes and nine subtribes of Phylinae.
Systematics and host plant associations of a new genus of Acacia-inhabiting plant bugs from arid Australia (Insecta : Hemiptera : Heteroptera : Miridae : Orthotylinae)
The genus is putatively an Acacia specialist, and has cryptozoic yellowish colouration, and is primarily found in arid and semi-arid regions of non-monsoonal regions of Australia.


Revision and Cladistic Analysis of the Polyozus Group of Australian Phylini (Heteroptera: Miridae: Phylinae)
Cladistic analysis of the nine species of Polyozus and seven additional, related species resulted in the hypothesis thatPolyozus is a monophyletic group, with Ancoraphylus, n.gen.
Revision of New Zealand Bryocorinae and Phylinae (Insecta: Hemiptera: Miridae)
Eight new genera (Basileobius, Cyrtodiridius, Halormus, Mecenopa, Monospatha, Pimeleocoris, Polyozus, and Xiphoides) and 14 new species of endemic New Zealand Phylinae: Phylini are described and illustrated.
Abstract The diagnostic features of Plagiognathus are clarified, with characteristics of the male genitalia being used for the first time in diagnosing the Nearctic species. The North American
The Lattinova Complex of Austromirine Plant Bugs (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Miridae: Orthotylinae)
A new hypothesis of aedeagal evolution is proposed—the torsion hypothesis of endosomal spicules in the Lattinova complex, comprising five new genera: Fronsetta, Latt inova, Metopocoris, Sinistropa and Watarrkamiris.
Revision and Phylogenetic Analysis of the Hadronema Group (Miridae: Orthotylinae: Orthotylini), With Descriptions of New Genera and New Species, and Comments on the Neotropical Genus Tupimiris
Aoplonema, Aoplonemella, Daleapidea, hadronema, HadronemideA, Origonema, and Scutomiris form a monophyletic group herein denominated the Hadronema group, and a phylogenetic hypothesis of relationships among the genera is proposed, and host-plant associations are discussed.
Australian ant-mimetic Miridae (Hemiptera : Heteroptera). I. The Leucophoroptera group of the subfamily Phylinae
The group of Australian ant-mimetic Miridae treated in this paper are phylines and are distinguished here as the Leucophoroptera group and their ranking either as a tribe or subtribe of the Phylinae or Phylini is left undecided until there is some more stability in the classification of the family.
An update of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group classification for the orders and families of flowering plants: APG IV
A revised and updated classification for the families of the flowering plants is provided and the use of bracketing families that could be included optionally in broader circumscriptions with other related families are expanded.
Patterns of Embryological and Biochemical Evolution in the Asterids
The phylogenetic tree based on the recent phylogenetic analysis of four genes was used to elucidate the evolutionary patterns of the ovule and the diversification of iridoid biosynthesis in the asterids and showed high correlation of unitegmic-tenuinucellate ovules with iridoids synthesis.
Revision of the Mexican Genera Ficinus Distant and Jornandes Distant with the Description of 21 New Species (Heteroptera: Miridae: Orthotylinae: Orthotylini)
Twenty-five species of Jornandes are recognized, including 20 new species, predominately from the southern edge of the Transmexican Volcanic Belt near the conjunction of the Balsas Basin and the Sierra Madre del Sur of Guerrero, Puebla, and Oaxaca.

The use of unpalatability as a defense strategy of butterflies has been studied since the time of Bates (1862). Most studies have focused primarily on the role of unpalatability in mimicry systems,
