The genus Spiroplasma and its non-helical descendants: phylogenetic classification, correlation with phenotype and roots of the Mycoplasma mycoides clade.
The genus Spiroplasma (helical mollicutes: Bacteria: Firmicutes: Mollicutes: Entomoplasmatales: Spiroplasmataceae) is associated primarily with insects. The Mycoplasma mycoides cluster (sensuExpand
Corethrella (Diptera : Corethrellidae) of Eastern North America : laboratory life history and field responses to anuran calls
The laboratory life history from egg to adult is presented for Corethrella appendiculata Grabham, C. brakeleyi (Coquillett), and C. wirthi Stone. The average number of days required for a completeExpand
l-Octen-3-ol, an Effective Attractant for Tabanidae (Diptera)
The effectiveness of the canopy trap for female Tabanidae was increased significantly when l-octen-3-ol was used as an attractant. There was a threefold increase in the number of tabanids captured byExpand
Spiroplasma chrysopicola sp. nov., Spiroplasma gladiatoris sp. nov., Spiroplasma helicoides sp. nov., and Spiroplasma tabanidicola sp. nov., from Tabanid (Diptera: Tabanidae) Flies
Four spiroplasma strains, DF-1T, TG-1T, TABS-2T, and TAUS-1T, all of which were isolated from deerflies or horseflies (Diptera: Tabanidae), were serologically distinct from previously describedExpand
Revised group classification of the genus Spiroplasma.
Significant changes have been made in the systematics of the genus Spiroplasma (class Mollicutes) since it was expanded by revision in 1987 to include 23 groups and eight sub-groups. Since that time,Expand
Spiroplasma Species, Groups, and Subgroups from North American Tabanidae
Abstract. Twenty-one triply cloned spiroplasma strains from the United States east of the Rocky Mountains, all isolated from tabanid (Diptera:Tabanidae) flies or serologically related to strains fromExpand
Spiroplasma syrphidicola sp. nov., from a syrphid fly (Diptera: Syrphidae).
Spiroplasma sp. strain EA-1(T) (T = type strain) (subgroup VIII-1), which was isolated from the syrphid fly Eristalis arbustorum, was serologically distinct from other spiroplasma species, groups,Expand
Spiroplasma species in the Costa Rican highlands: implications for biogeography and biodiversity
More than 1,000 Spiroplasma isolates have been obtained from horse flies and deer flies (Diptera:Tabanidae) in the United States and Canada. However, the spiroplasma biota of Central America isExpand
Two-tier box trap catches Chrysops atlanticus and C. fuliginosus (Diptera: Tabanidae) near a Georgia salt marsh.
A new two-tier box trap designed for collecting Chrysops was tested on St. Simons Island, GA. The bottom box was constructed of plywood 1.2 m wide with the sides painted flat black on the outside andExpand
Corethrella (Diptera: Corethrellidae) of North America north of Mexico: distribution and morphology of immature stages.
The reported geographical range of Corethrella appendiculata Grabham is extended northward, of C. brakeleyi (Coquillett) westward, and of C. wirthi Stone northward and westward. All North AmericanExpand
