The recently described dictyopharid planthopper Taosa (Cuernavaca) longula Remes Lenicov (Hemiptera: Dictyopharidae) is associated with aquatic plants of the family Pontederiaceae in northern Argentina and Peru (Remes Lenicov & Hernandez, 2010).
s (1996) recent molecular phylogenetic investigation of mating system evolution in the plant family Pontederiaceae suggests that there may be several long-lived selfing taxa in the group, and Armbruster's (1993) investigation of mating system evolution in the genus Dalechampia suggests reversals from selfing to outcrossing in several lineages.
