Male Baclozygum depressum, from Insects of Tasmania.

Belongs within: Cimicomorpha.
Contains: Cantacaderinae, Tinginae.

The Tingoidea are a group of mostly plant-feeding bugs that lack trichobothria on the head. The costal fracture on the wings is reduced, tarsi are two-segmented and spermatheca are non-functional (Shcherbakov & Popov 2002). The greater number of species belong to the Tingidae, lace bugs, which are characterised by an often ornate lace-like ornamentation of the thorax and wings. The Thaumastocoridae are a group of small, flattened bugs with a relictual distribution in India, Australia and the Americas, characterised by an apical process on the tibiae that is almost as long as the small, slender tarsi (Carver et al. 1991). Joppeicus paradoxus is a small bug found in Asia Minor that preys on other insects on Ficus and usually carries its rostrum directed anteriorly (Richards & Davies 1977).
