First Recorded Parasitoid from China of Agrilus planipennis: A New Species of Spathius (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Doryctinae)
Life history observations of S. agrili in the field and laboratory indicate it is a gregarious idiobiont ectoparasitoid and has up to four generations per year. Expand
Comparative mitogenomics of Braconidae (Insecta: Hymenoptera) and the phylogenetic utility of mitochondrial genomes with special reference to Holometabolous insects
Comparative studies indicate that mitochondrial genomes are a useful phylogenetic tool at the ordinal level within Holometabola, at the superfamily within Hymenoptera and at the subfamily level within Braconidae, suggesting that the utility of mitochondrial genomes is likely to be a valuable tool for systematics in other groups of arthropods.

New Views on Strand Asymmetry in Insect Mitochondrial Genomes
It is shown that deaminations during replication and other mutations contribute more than selection on amino acid sequences to strand compositions of G and C, and that the replication process has a stronger affect on A and T content than does transcription. Expand
Revision of the Agathidinae (Hymenoptera, Braconidae) of Vietnam, with the description of forty-two new species and three new genera
Sixty-five species are recognised, of which twelve species are newly recorded for Vietnam: Bassus albifasciatus (Watanabe, 1934), Coccygidium angostura (Bhat & Gupta, 1977), Cremnops atricornis (Smith, 1874), stat. Expand
The first two mitochondrial genomes of wood wasps (Hymenoptera: Symphyta): Novel gene rearrangements and higher-level phylogeny of the basal hymenopterans.
The first two representative mitochondrial genomes from the superfamily Siricoidea and Xiphydrioidea (Hymenoptera: Symphyta) are obtained using next-generation sequencing and Phylogenetic relationships among the major lineages of symphyta are reconstructed using mitochondrial genomes. Expand
A revision of the Chinese Stephanidae (Hymenoptera, Stephanoidea)
The Stephanidae Leach, 1815 (Hymenoptera: Stephanoidea) from China are revised and new synonyms are established and one species is newly recorded from China. Expand
A study of the Iranian species of Choeras Mason (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Microgastrinae), with the description of a new species.
Four species of Choeras Mason, 1981 (Braconidae: Microgastrinae) from Iran are revised; three are illustrated, of which one is described as new species from SE and W Iran: C. taftanensis Ghafouri Moghaddam van Achterberg sp. Expand
A new species of genus Leluthia Cameron (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) parasitizing Agrilus sp. (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) from China with a key to the East Palaearctic species.
A new species of genus Leluthia Cameron (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), L. chinensis Li & van Achterberg, sp. nov. is described and illustrated. It was reared from Agrilus sp. (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), aExpand
Braconidae (Hymenoptera: Opiinae, Alysiinae) Reared from Aquatic Leaf-Mining Diptera on Lagarosiphon major (Hydrocharitaceae) in South Africa
Three new species belonging to two genera of the family Braconidae (Hymenoptera) are recorded from a dipterous aquatic leaf miner on Lagarosiphon major (Hydrocharitaceae), which is new for the fauna of South Africa. Expand
Revision of the subfamily Opiinae (Hymenoptera, Braconidae) from Hunan (China), including thirty-six new species and two new genera
The species of the subfamily Opiinae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) from Hunan (Oriental China) are revised and illustrated and the cladogram presented. Expand
