Trichophora

Most authors have accepted this grouping since the time it was originally proposed by Tullgren (1918). Our morphological and total evidence analyses sup-

port the Trichophora as monophyletic ( Figs 42–44 View Fig View Fig View Fig , 53 View Fig and 54 View Fig ). The Pentatomoidea and Lygaeoidea (sensu Henry, 1997) are each monophyletic and form a sistergroup relationship, although our sample for the latter grouping is very small. The analysis of Wheeler et al. (1993) offered, in our view, a weak attempt to resolve relationships within the Trichophora , because it contained data insufficient to do any more than support the monophyly of the Trichophora . Rigorous tests of the theories of Henry (1997) concerning the monophyly of the Lygaeoidea and the sister-group relation-

ships of that taxon will require analysis of both morphological and molecular data for a broadly representative taxon sample.
