The families Berytidae and Miridae (i.e., Neoborella pseudotsugae; Kelton and Herring, 1978) were more abundant in broomed branches (P = 0.0187 and 0.0253, respectively).

Worldwide, stilt bugs are a relatively small group of unusual hemipterans, or true bugs, in the family Berytidae. They possess long, slender legs, leathery front wings, and membranous hind wings.
Other Hemiptera collected from leaves included a lygus bug (Lygaeidae), treehopper (Membracidae), mirid (Miridae), stiltbug (Berytidae), hard scale (Diaspidae), stainers (Pyrrhocoridae), jewel bugs (Scutelleridae), broad-headed bug (Alydidae), flat bug (Aradidae), lacebug (Tingidae) and several families of planthoppers (Delphacidae, Fulgoridae, Acanaloniidae, and Cixiidae).
Henry's main interest was to elucidate the relationships among the Lygaeoidea and to test the monophyly of this group, while looking for a sister group relationship for the Berytidae. In his analyses Pentatomoidea is the sister group of the remaining Pentatomomorpha, i.e., ((Coreoidea + Pyrrhocoroidea) + (Idiostoloidea + Lygaeoidea sensu stricto)).
