Homoptera order information sheets

The order is divided into three suborders: Geocorizae (terrestrial bugs), Amphibicorizae (semiaquatic or shore-inhabiting bugs), and Hydrocorizae (aquatic bugs). Hemiptera are also important in agriculture, known to cause direct damage to plants by herbivory and indirectly by transporting diseases (Dooling, 1991).

Information on the Sternorrhyncha, a suborder of True bugs (Order: Hemiptera). The Sternorrhyncha include familiar insects such as aphids. The Hymenoptera are quite a distinctive order and members are unlikely to be confused with other insects. Some of the smaller winged species may appear to only have 1 pair of wings and may be mistaken for flies (Diptera). All members of the suborder Homoptera have piercing/sucking mouthparts and feed by withdrawing sap from vascular plants. The proboscis is shorter than that found in true bugs (suborder Heteroptera), and it emerges near the ventral posterior margin of the head capsule (opistognathous). Order Homoptera (*check current classification) COMMON NAMES - CICADAS, LEAFHOPPERS, TREEHOPPERS, SCALE INSECTS, APHIDS, SPITTLEBUGS, PLANTHOPPERS, AND MEALYBUGS Members of the order Homoptera vary widely in appearance. They range from small to large and may or may not have wings.

Homoptera, order of plant-feeding insects with membranous wings and piercing, sucking mouthparts. They are closely related to the true bugs. About 45,000 species are known. Among the most familiar are the aphids, cicadas, leafhoppers, and scale insects. The range of size and shape of homopterans is great. Most undergo incomplete metamorphosis.
