Ant-mediated secondary dispersal (myrmecochory) of phasmid eggs using a fleshy nutrient-rich appendage called capitulum remains poorly studied, albeit the egg capitula are present in a large number of phasmid species worldwide. We here report our unexpected collection of 42 multi-species phasmid eggs deposited together with seeds in the four nests...

Stick and leaf insects (Phasmatodea) are large terrestrial herbivorous arthropods known for masquerading as plant parts such as bark, twigs and leaves. Their evolutionary history is largely shaped by convergent evolution associated with adaptive radiations on geographically isolated landmasses that have repeatedly generated ground-dwelling ecomorph...

While the leaf insects (Phylliidae) are a well-supported group within Phasmatodea, the genus Phyllium Illiger, 1798 has repeatedly been recovered as paraphyletic. Here, the Phyllium (Phyllium) celebicum species group is reviewed and its distinctiveness from the remaining Phylliini genera and subgenera in a phyloge- netic context based on morphologi...

Aschiphasmatinae is a small group of stick insects from the Oriental region whose genital morphology has been rarely described in detail.
