ARTHROPODA Generalis 6: 1-8.

A new species of cone-headed stick insect (Phasmatodea: Diapheromeridae: Loxopsis) from Samar Island, Philippines.

Author: Ireneo L. Lit, jr & Orlando L. Eusebio

Publication date: October 14th, 2015

Abstract: The third Philippine species of Loxopsis is described as new to science and named Loxopsis waray Lit & Eusebio, n. sp., based on adult females and their eggs, collected from Samar Island. The new species differs from the other Philippine Loxopsis species in having the apex of the subgenital plate excised at the margins and incurved posteriorly in addition to a very long hindwing i. e. reaching the IX abdominal tergite. Its discovery expands the geographical range of the genus northward but maintains the distribution of Loxopsis as confined to the Greater Mindanao biogeographic region.

A new species of leaf insect (Phasmatodea: Phylliidae) from Northern Luzon, Philippines.

Author: Ireneo L. Lit, jr & Orlando L. Eusebio

Publication date: December 19th, 2014

Abstract: A new species of leaf insect or walking leaf, Phyllium bonifacioi Lit & Eusebio, n. sp., from the northern part of Luzon Island, Philippines, is described and illustrated. Among other Philippine species, the new species is morphologically closest to P. ericoriai Hennemann et al. in having well-developed alae.  However, it differs from P. ericoriai and other Phyllium species by having the VII abdominal lateral margins with indistinct lobe and posteriorly converging. The place of collection is within key biodiversity areas and the discovery of this new walking leaf also contributes to the importance of northern Luzon corridors and conservation priority areas in Philippine biodiversity and conservation.

A new species of armored scale insect (Hemiptera: Diaspididae) attacking Lansium domesticum in the Philippines.

Author: Ireneo L. Lit, jr & Normandy M. Barbecho

Publication date: November 25th, 2014

Abstract: A new species of armored scale insect, Unaspis mabilis Lit & Barbecho, n. sp., is described and illustrated as the second species of Unaspis in the Philippines. This sucking insect infests and is currently considered a pest of lanzones, Lansium domesticum, trees although it may not be native to the archipelago. It is probably of recent introduction from other countries which serve as sources of imported larger varieties of lanzones fruits.

New insights and critical remarks on certain species of walking leaves (Insecta: Phasmatodea: Phylliidae).

Author: Detlef Grösser

Publication date: March 08, 2011

Abstract: A recent publication by Hennemann et al. (2009) discusses the identity of several species cultured in Europe, but various taxonomic acts, especially new species and synonyms, are doubtful. The present author has executed extensive experiments. For several generations the ,species‘ have been hybridised and the changes been noted.
Additionally, the internal female genitalia have been examined and compared. The sclerites of 21 females and 22 male vomer are figured, most of them for the first time, as well as the eggs of the species treated in this article and their hybrids.
As a result, Phyllium philippinicum Hennemann et al. appears to be a hybrid, and Phyllium tobeloense must be re-established as a valid species.
The description of new phasmid species should be based on original material and not on cultured specimens of uncertain origin.

Description of the first adult female of †Archipseudophasma phoenix Zompro, 2001 known to science, with notes on the subfamily †Sucinophasmatinae (Insecta: Phasmatodea: †Archipseudophasmatidae).

Author: Oliver Zompro

Publication date: March 06, 2011

Abstract: To date, descriptions of phasmids in Baltic amber have been based on adult males or nymphs, and adult females remained unknown. Now an adult female of †Archipseudophasma Zompro, 2001 has been discovered that provides evidence that both sexes possessed fully developed tegmina and alae. The external female genitalia can be examined in this well preserved specimen. The largest specimen known to science belonging to the subfamily †Sucinophasmatinae has been traced, too. The problem about the length of the wings remains unsolved.

The new spiny stick insect Stenobrimus lumad Lit & Eusebio, n. sp. (Phasmatodea: Heteropterygidae: Obriminae: Eubulidini) - the first record of the genus from Mindanao Island, The Philippines, and some insights in the conservation of forest arthropods.

Author: Ireneo L. Lit, jr.

Publication date: November 30, 2010

Abstract: A new species of spiny stick insect, Stenobrimus lumad Lit & Eusebio, n. sp., is described and illustrated. This constitutes the first record of the genus Stenobrimus Redtenbacher 1906, from the island of Mindanao in southern Philippines. The new species differs from other Stenobrimus species by having no or subobsolete anterior pronotals and median mesonotals. The new locality record also suggests that the genus Stenobrimus probably has a wider Philippine distribution than what is presently known, i.e, Greater Luzon and Greater Mindanao biogeographical regions. In addition, the discovery of new species of a stick insect and other organisms in Mounts Balatukan and Magdiwata highlights the importance of those conservation priority areas in Philippine biodiversity and conservation.
