The cladistics and higher classification of the Pimpliformes (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae)
The monophyly of the ichneumonid clade Pimpliformes is established and the phylogenetic relationships of the eight component subfamilies are resolved. The clade (Acaenitinae + (Diacritinae +Expand

Cladistics of the genera of Mesochorinae (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae)
Abstract. A cladistic analysis is presented for the genera of the ichneumonid subfamily Mesochorinae. Nine genera are recognized as valid. Previous work on larval morphology is reviewed and a numberExpand
