Vouchering DNA-barcoded specimens: test of a nondestructive extraction protocol for terrestrial arthropods
TLDR
A protocol for the nondestructive extraction of DNA from terrestrial arthropods is described, using as examples members of the orders Acarina, Araneae, Coleoptera, Diptera, and Hymenoptera chosen to represent the ranges in size, overall sclerotization, and delicacy of key morphological characters in the group.
Fruit Flies of the Genus Anastrepha (Diptera: Tephritidae) and Associated Native Parasitoids (Hymenoptera) in the Tropical Rainforest Biosphere Reserve of Montes Azules, Chiapas, Mexico
TLDR
Larvae of eight species of Anastrepha on nine plant species from six plant families were found to be parasitized by Doryctobracon areolatus Szepligeti, D. zeteki Musebeck, Opius hirtus Fisher, Utetes anastrephae Viereck, and Aganaspis pelleranoi Brethes.
The fauna of Tephritidae (Diptera) from capitula of Asteraceae in Brazil
TLDR
The first comprehensive survey of the fauna of Tephritidae that breed in capitula of Asteraceae in southern and southeastern Brazil, resulting from a sampling program begun in 1985, shows that there is little variation in the set of host plants of tephritid species and genera among areas.
Remarkable fly (Diptera) diversity in a patch of Costa Rican cloud forest: Why inventory is a vital science.
TLDR
The number of species of Diptera in tropical regions has been severely underestimated and the actual number may surpass the number ofspecies of Coleoptera.
A revision of the Anastrepha robusta species group (Diptera: Tephritidae)
TLDR
The Anastrepha robusta species group is revised to include the following 29 species, and Moutabea longifolia is recorded as a host plant of A. rojasi, the first host record for Anastrata species from the plant family Polygalaceae.
A Preliminary List of the Fruit Flies of the Genus Anastrepha (Diptera: Tephritidae) in Costa Rica
TLDR
Variation in host use and adult morphology between Costa Rican and Mexican-Guatemalan populations of A. ludens (Loew) is discussed.
A global checklist of the 932 fruit fly species in the tribe Dacini (Diptera, Tephritidae)
TLDR
This checklist is the first global overview of valid species names for the Dacini in almost two decades, and includes new lure records and is a resource for those studying fruit flies as well as researchers studying components of their impact on agriculture.
Comprehensive inventory of true flies (Diptera) at a tropical site
TLDR
The intensive inventory of a four-hectare tropical cloud forest in Costa Rica for one year yielded 4332 species of Diptera, providing the first verifiable basis for diversity of a major group of insects at a single site in the tropics.
