Skeletal Morphology of Opius dissitus and Biosteres carbonarius (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), with a Discussion of Terminology
TLDR
The external skeletal morphology of Opius dissitus Muesebeck 1963 and Biosteres carbonarius Nees 1834 are described, two diverse representatives of one of the least known and most diverse braconid subfamilies, the Opiinae, and the terminology used to describe skeletal features in the Ichneumonoidea in general and the OpIinae is reviewed.

Darwin wasps: a new name heralds renewed efforts to unravel the evolutionary history of Ichneumonidae
The parasitoid wasp family Ichneumonidae is arguably one of the groups for which current knowledge lags most strongly behind their enormous diversity. In a five-day meeting in Basel (Switzerland) inExpand
Completing Linnaeus’s inventory of the Swedish insect fauna: only 5,000 species left?
TLDR
The size and composition of the Swedish insect fauna, thought to represent roughly half of the diversity of multicellular life in one of the largest European countries, is reported on, and it is suggested that it comprises around 33,000 species. Expand
The Swedish Malaise Trap Project: A 15 Year Retrospective on a Countrywide Insect Inventory
TLDR
The history, organisation, methodology and logistics of the SMTP is described, focusing on the rationale for the decisions taken and the lessons learned along the way, as well as characterising the size and taxonomic composition of theSMTP material. Expand
Antimicrobial use and antimicrobial susceptibility in Escherichia coli on small- and medium-scale pig farms in north-eastern Thailand
TLDR
Although the level of antimicrobial resistance, as well as multidrug-resistance, was higher in isolates from medium-scale farms, it cannot be concluded if this increase is a consequence of a more abundant use of antimicrobials, or a result of differences in administration routines. Expand
A hymenopterists' guide to the Hymenoptera Anatomy Ontology: Utility, clarification, and future directions
TLDR
The history, development, and utility of the Hymenoptera Anatomy Ontology (HAO) and its associated applications are described and the roles of homology, “preferred terms”, and “structural equivalency” are discussed. Expand
Biodiversity assessments in the 21st century: the potential of insect traps to complement environmental samples for estimating eukaryotic and prokaryotic diversity using high-throughput DNA
TLDR
The potential of bulk insect samples to assess prokaryote and eukaryote biodiversity and to complement the taxonomic coverage of soil samples is examined and it is proposed that the sampling and sequencing of insect samples should become a standard complement for biodiversity studies based on environmental DNA. Expand
Completing Linnaeus’s inventory of the Swedish insect fauna: Only 5,000 species left?
TLDR
The size and composition of the Swedish insect fauna, thought to represent roughly half of the diversity of multicellular life in one of the largest European countries, is reported on, and it is suggested that it comprises around 33,000 species. Expand
The data of the Swedish Malaise Trap Project, a countrywide inventory of Sweden's insect fauna
TLDR
The SMTP dataset is unique in that it contains a large proportion of data on previously poorly-known taxa in the Diptera and Hymenoptera, and will be published continuously. Expand
