Taxonomy and phylogeny of Leptopilina species (Hymenoptera: Cynipoidea: Figitidae) attacking frugivorous drosophilid flies in Japan, with description of three new species
Despite the intensive use of the Leptopilina genus and its drosophilid hosts as model systems in the study of host–parasitoid interactions, the diversity and distribution of the species occurring inExpand

Genetic differentiation of Ganaspis brasiliensis (Hymenoptera: Figitidae) from East and Southeast Asia
Ganaspis brasiliensis (Ihering) (Hymenoptera: Figitidae: Eucoilinae) is a Drosophila parasitoid that has often been misidentified as G. xanthopoda (Ashmead) in recent studies. This study aims toExpand

Colocasiomyia (Diptera: Drosophilidae) revised phylogenetically, with a new species group having peculiar lifecycles on monsteroid (Araceae) host plants
The phylogeny of Colocasiomyia (Drosophilidae) is analysed using data for 70 morphological characters, many of which are re‐evaluated from or added to those used previously, for an expanded taxonExpand

Diapause and cold tolerance in Asian species of the parasitoid Leptopilina (Hymenoptera: Figitidae)
Diapause and cold tolerance are essential for temperate insects to pass the winter, with the mechanisms controlling these two traits varying considerably among insects. In the present study, diapauseExpand

What Determines Host Acceptance and Suitability in Tropical Asian Drosophila Parasitoids?
ABSTRACT For successful parasitism, parasitoid females must oviposit and the progeny must develop in individual hosts. Here, we investigated the determinants of host acceptance for oviposition andExpand

Diversity and abundance of frugivorous drosophilids and their parasitoids in Bogor, Indonesia
The diversity, abundance and association of frugivorous drosophilids and their parasitoids were studied in Bogor, Indonesia (tropical region), and compared with the results in Iriomote-jimaExpand

Altitudinal patterns of abundances and parasitism in frugivorous drosophilids in west Java, Indonesia
Abundances and parasitism rates of frugivorous drosophilid flies were studied in three localities at altitudes of 250–1350 m in and near Bogor, Indonesia. The drosophilid and parasitoid species wereExpand

Assessment of fitness costs of resistance against the parasitoid Leptopilina victoriae in Drosophila bipectinata
How insects evolve resistance or counter-resistance against antagonists is a basic issue in the study of host-parasitoid coevolution. One of the factors that affect their coevolution is fitness costsExpand
