Although a great deal of attention, on the part of several workers,
has been devoted to a study of the head structure of Hemiptera, the
interpretation of which presents one of the most controversial questions
in external insect anatomy, uncertainty still exists as to the
correct homologies of the various sclerites. Hence in taxonomic
papers the same part of the head may be named differently according
to the views held by the respective authors.
The present work has been made possible by the recent discovery
of abundant material of Herniodoecus fidelis Evans, a representative
of the Peloridiidae, which is undoubtedly the most archaic hemipterous
family still in existence
