He also presented the cladogram of an unpublished analysis of Cimicoidea relationships (see Schuh 1986: 79).
Their analysis shows that Reduvioidea (i.e., Reduviidae + Pachynomidae) is the sister group to the remaining Cimicomorpha, agreeing with the hypothesis of Schuh (1979), and that Velocipedidae is the sister group of ((Microphysidae + (Joppeicidae + Miroidea)) + (Naboidea + Cimicoidea)).
