Table 1 Sister groups differing in host diversity (HD). Sister groups were selected on the basis of differences in host diversity. HD 1 is the group with the highest host diversity and Richness 1 is the corresponding species richness of that group. Richness 2 shows the species richness of the group with the lower host diversity (HD 2).

From: Diversity begets diversity: host expansions and the diversification of plant-feeding insects
