Studying the Phasmatodea digestive system is important not only for potential use in systematics, but also in the evolution of their diet: Unlike other Polyneoptera, phasmids are exclusively folivorous (Calderon-Cortes et al.
In this study we describe the digestive systems of species widely spread across the Phasmatodea phylogenetic tree (Fig.
The following Phasmatodea species were used: Diapherodes gigantea Gmelin, Eurycantha calcarata Lucas, Extatosoma tiaratum Macleay, Medauroidea extradentata Brunner, and Ramulus nematodes De Haan (Phasmatidae), plus Sipyloideasipylus Westwood (Diapheromeridae), Aretaon asperrimus Redtenbacher (Heteropterygidae), Peruphasma schultei Conle & Hennemann and Anisomorpha buprestoides Stoll (Pseudophasmatidae), and Phyllium siccifolium L (Phylliidae).
