Cobben [18] has reported that apical plates can be found in several taxa such as the Saldidae, Microphysidae, Dipsocoridae, Enicocephalidae, Reduviidae, Nabidae, Miridae, and all Gerromorpha.
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)).
