Gryllotalpoidea

provided by wikipedia EN

The Gryllotalpoidea are a superfamily of insects that includes the mole crickets and the ant crickets.[1] The type genus is Gryllotalpa.[1][2][3]

Recent (2015) molecular phylogenetic studies support the monophyly of the cricket clade (Gryllidea in the Orthoptera Species File[4]) and its subdivision into two clades: Gryllotalpidae and Myrmecophilidae on the one hand, and all the other crickets (i.e. crickets sensu stricto: seven monophyletic clades, including the scaly crickets Mogoplistidae and Gryllidae).[5]

Families and subfamilies

The Orthoptera Species File lists the following families and subfamilies:[1]
