The recruitment of parasitoid species to two invading herbivores
TLDR
Against initial predictions, the size of the assemblages were indistinguishable from those on native species and it was predicted that the parasitoids attacking novel hosts should have a wider host range than those attacking native hosts, but this was not found to be the case.
Lepidoptera. Chapter 11
TLDR
It is highlighted that four species in particular, Diaphania perspectalis, Cacyreus marshalli, Cameraria ohridella and Paysandisia archon, are the most important current economic threats.
The pattern of spread of invading species: two leaf-mining moths colonizing Great Britain
TLDR
The relationship between the square root of the range and time was in both cases remarkably linear, suggesting that the spread of the moths can be viewed as a simple travelling wave.
Discovery of an unknown diversity of Leucinodes species damaging Solanaceae fruits in sub-Saharan Africa and moving in trade (Insecta, Lepidoptera, Pyraloidea)
TLDR
The taxonomy of African Leucinodes and Sceliodes is investigated based on morphological characters in wing pattern, genitalia and larvae, as well as mitochondrial DNA, providing these data for identification of all life stages and suggest that both genera are congeneric.
New Tortricidae (Lepidoptera) from East Africa with an account of the tortricid fauna of acacia in the Kenyan Rift Valley.
TLDR
Species of Tortricidae whose larvae feed on acacia are listed, including five new species; and Age onychistica Diakonoff is recorded from Africa for the first time.
Revision of African Neaspasia Diakonoff, 1989 and the related Conaspasia, n. gen. (Lepidoptera, Tortricidae).
TLDR
The six species of Neaspasia Diakonoff present in mainland Africa are described and illustrated and Genetancylis Razowski is synonymised with NeaspAsia.
