Schuh's (1979) analysis differs mainly from that of Kerzhner (1981) in the placement of the Reduvioidea, which Schuh considered to be the sister group to the remaining Cimicomorpha, contrary to Kerzhner's assertion of being a derived clade.
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)).
