Pentatomoidea

Our study supports the monophyly of the Pentatomoidea on the basis of the following characters ( Figs 42 View Fig , 43 View Fig , 53 View Fig and 54 View Fig ): (i) scutellum reaching or

surpassing an imaginary transverse line crossing the connexivum at apical angles of 3rd abdominal segment (161); (ii) claval commissure obsolete, claval apices close together but not contiguous (172); (iii) abdominal trichobothria lateral on urosternites II–VII, usually 2 + 2 or at least 1 + 1 (342); and (iv) tergite VIII covering tergite IX in females (431). This character suite is in close agreement with the views of earlier authors (see Schuh and Štys, 1991). In Figure 44 View Fig , under implied weighting, the Pentatomoidea is not monophyletic, and neither is the group supported by the characters listed above.
