They are hemiptera insects (such as bed bugs or heteroptera) that have biting-sucking mouthparts with two pairs of transparent membranous wings inclined on the abdomen in the form of a roof.
Also among these insects there are some without wings.
All are phytophagous, that is, they feed on juices and vegetable substances.
Among the most important families are the cicadas, which have an organ that produces a characteristic sound.
In the larval stage, they live underground for four years, feeding on roots, and once they have reached the adult stage, they are arboreal. Eggs are injected into plant tissues.
Among the homopterans there are very strange forms, almost all tropical, and species very harmful to plants and agriculture.
Among them are aphids or plant lice, vine phylloxera and mealybug.
This order of insects includes more than 100,000 species of small and medium dimensions, with membranous wings and often without them or very small.
They have a chewing-licking mouthpart and short antennae. They have compound and simple eyes.
The respiratory system is tracheal and branches and expands into air sacs in flying species.
The brain ganglia are highly developed. Most eat vegetables (pollen and juices), but there are also carnivorous and parasitic species.
His metamorphosis is complete. There are some species whose females possess poisonous stingers.
The social instinct is highly developed and they form numerous and very complex colonies.
A small presentation of the diversity of the insects could be the following:
|WITHOUT WINGS or Apteros|
|Proturos||They are the most primitive insects.|
Without wings or antennae.
A ventral organ allows them to take great leaps.
|Tisanuros||Tres apendices terminales|

The SEA is realizing a complete Catalog of the Aragonese Entomofauna that has already been partially published, where 190 families have been inventoried with 3012 species.
A small list of species in Aragon would be the following:
