A New Emerald Ash Borer (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) Parasitoid Species of Spathius Nees (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Doryctinae) from the Russian Far East and South Korea
Molecular evidence supports that Russian and Korean specimens represent a single species and are closely related to two Asian species that belong to the S. exarator species group.
Evolution of the parasitic wasp subfamily Rogadinae (Braconidae): phylogeny and evolution of lepidopteran host ranges and mummy characteristics
The molecular dating of clades and the ancestral reconstruction of host ranges support the hypothesis that radiation within Aleiodes s.
Phylogeny of the genera of the parasitic wasps subfamily Doryctinae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) based on morphological evidence
This work investigated the ‘performance’ of characters from external morphology and the other character systems and the effects of abundant missing entries by comparing the data decisiveness, retention and consistency indices of four different character partitions, indicating that the morphological information in this group is subject to high levels of homoplasy.
Asian Betylobraconinae (Hymenoptera, Braconidae), with description of a new genus and phylogenetic affinities of the tribe Facitorini
The taxonomy of the Asian genera of the subfamily Betylobraconinae, a small and understudied group within the hymenopteran family Braconidae, is revised. A new genus exclusively from the Asian
DNA barcoding and the taxonomy of Microgastrinae wasps (Hymenoptera, Braconidae): impacts after 8 years and nearly 20 000 sequences
The integration of DNA barcoding with traditional morphology‐based taxonomy, host records, and other data has substantially improved the accuracy of microgastrine wasp identifications and will significantly accelerate further studies on this group of parasitoids.
Phylogeny and evolution of dorsal pattern in the Mexican endemic lizard genus Barisia (Anguidae: Gerrhonotinae)
Variation of the dorsal pattern within Barisia was mapped onto the simultaneous morphological and molecular phylogeny, indicating that the two main states present in the taxa assigned to B. imbricata, an adult dorsal pattern present in females and absent in males and the absence of any pattern in both sexes, occur each in separate lineages.
