Resumen: El Orden Hemiptera comprende cuatro clados: Sternorrhyncha, Auchenorrhyncha, Coleorrhyncha y Heteroptera.
Abstract: The Order Hemiptera comprises four main clades: Sternorrhyncha, Auchenorrhyncha, Coleorrhyncha and Heteroptera.
He recognized three groups within Hemiptera: Sternorrhyncha, Auchenorrhyncha, and Heteropterodea (as "Heteropteroidea"), the latter clade formed by Coleorrhyncha + Heteroptera (Schlee 1969d).
They proposed: Clypeorrhyncha (for extant Cicadomorpha), Archaeorrhyncha (for Fulgoromorpha), Peloridiomorpha (for Coleorrhyncha [Peloridiidae]), Neohemiptera (for Fulgoromorpha + Heteropterodea), and Prosorrhyncha (for Heteropterodea) (Table 1).
It has been suggested that a tymbal-like communication is synapomorphic for Auchenorrhyncha + Coleorrhyncha + Heteroptera (Hoch et al.
Goodchild (1966) based on the morphology and histology of the digestive tract considered Auchenorrhyncha as paraphyletic because he considered two groups: Fulgoromorpha + Heteroptera and Cicadomorpha + Sternorrhyncha, with the Coleorrhyncha in a polytomy with both.
Heteropterodea is the clade containing Coleorrhyncha + Heteroptera (Schlee 1969d; Hennig 1969, 1981; Kristensen 1975).
En el suborden Auchenorrhyncha, infraorden Cicadomorpha se incluyen las superfamilias Cicadoidea, Cercopoidea y Membracoidea; el infraorden Fulgoromorpha incluye a la superfamilia Fulgoroidea (con 20 familias), los otros subordenes son: Coleorrhyncha y Heteroptera (=Prosorrhyncha) (verdaderas chinches).
The hemipterans have been classified into four major taxa (suborder): Heteroptera, Coleorrhyncha, Sternorrhyncha, and Auchenorrhyncha [2]; the latter are divided into Fulgoromorpha and Cicadomorpha [3].
