Anyway, the Homoptera have the dubious distinction of being probably the most destructive insects of all. They include aphids, leafhoppers, cicadas, and scale insects: 45, species in all. Both Hemiptera and Heteroptera go back to the Permian, and are fairly well-known as fossils. Indian Homoptera - high resolution image from old book. Size in pixels: xstandard_description.
