Two new species of tarsocheylid mites (Acari: Heterostigmata, Tarsocheylidae) from coastal grassland soil in Thailand
Abstract The first representatives of tarsocheylid mites (Acari, Heterostigmata) from Thailand, Hoplocheylus longisetosus sp. nov. and Hoplocheylus nudis sp. nov., collected from sandy soil of theExpand
A turbo-taxonomic study of Thai Aleiodes (Aleiodes) and Aleiodes (Arcaleiodes) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Rogadinae) based largely on COI barcoded specimens, with rapid descriptions of 179 new species
The Aleiodes and Arcaleiodes species of Thailand are revised based on extensive recent collecting as well as existing museum material, and combining evidence from DNA barcoding for sequenced material with species known from morphological data alone. Expand
Molecular phylogeny places the enigmatic subfamily Masoninae within the Ichneumonidae, not the Braconidae
Discovery of a fully winged female of Masona from remote Australia has enabled a reassessment of its relationships and molecular analyses place Masona basally among the ophioniformes lineage of Ichneumonidae. Expand
Recognition of the Trachypetidae stat.n. as a new extant family of Ichneumonoidea (Hymenoptera), based on molecular and morphological evidence
Molecular and combined molecular and morphological analyses confirm the monophyly of the Trachypetinae and robustly place them as sister to the Braconidae and propose the new family, Trachtypetidae Schulz stat.n. Expand
Extension of historical range of Betylobraconinae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) into Palaearctic Region based on a Baltic amber fossil, and description of a new species of Mesocentrus Szépligeti from
Two new species of the parasitic wasp genus Mesocentrus Szépligeti (Betylobraconinae) are described. One based on a new species from Papua New Guinea, the other the first Palaearctic member of theExpand
A cross‐continental comparison of assemblages of seed‐ and fruit‐feeding insects in tropical rain forests: Faunal composition and rates of attack
It is suggested that seed eaters may be most commonly associated with dry fruits at relatively dry tropical sites where fleshy fruits may be less prevalent and only weak evidence of community convergence at the intercontinental scale among these assemblages is observed. Expand
Cystomastacoides van Achterberg (Braconidae, Rogadinae): first host record and descriptions of three new species from Thailand and Papua New Guinea
A new species of Cystomastacoides van Achterberg, C. asotaphaga Quicke sp. n., is described and illustrated based on a series of specimens reared from caterpillars of the erebid moth Asota planaExpand
Colastomion Baker (Braconidae, Rogadinae): nine new species from Papua New Guinea reared from Crambidae
Nine new species of Colastomion Baker are described, illustrated and keyed based on series of specimens reared from caterpillars of crambid moths from lowland Papua New Guinea plus one additionalExpand
Different allometric intercepts in major Aegus chelifer chelifer stag beetle males from urban and forest habitats
This model revealed the existence of dimorphism in males that could be divided into minor and major morphs based on their mandible size, in broad agreement with the morph classification based on mandible shape. Expand
First host record for the Palaeotropical braconine wasp genus Cassidibracon Quicke (Hymenoptera, Braconidae) with the description of a new species from India
A new species, Cassidibracon gracillariae Quicke sp. n. from India, is described and illustrated and differentiated from other Indian species. The three known specimens were each reared fromExpand
