Phylogenetic characterization of bacteria in the gut of house flies (Musca domestica L.).
It is shown that the house fly gut is an environmental reservoir for a vast number of bacterial species, which may have impacts on vector potential and pathogen transmission.

This study determined the extent of genetic diversity in global A. fulica populations using the mitochondrial 16S ribosomal RNA gene and found that for the non-native populations, the lack of genetic variation points to founder effects due to the absence of multiple introductions from the native range.
Ignatzschineria indica sp. nov. and Ignatzschineria ureiclastica sp. nov., isolated from adult flesh flies (Diptera: Sarcophagidae).
Two Gram-negative-staining, aerobic, non-motile, rod-shaped bacteria, designated strains FFA1(T) and FFA3(T), and belonging to the class Gammaproteobacteria were isolated from the gastrointestinal tract of adult flesh flies and demonstrated that they represented two novel species of the genus Ignatzschineria.
Determination of Wolbachia Diversity in Butterflies from Western Ghats, India, by a Multigene Approach
A striking diversity was observed among Wolbachia strains in butterfly hosts based on five multilocus sequence typing (MLST) genes, with 15 different sequence types (STs), further supporting the role of both processes in generating Wolbachian diversity.
Bacterial diversity in different regions of gastrointestinal tract of Giant African Snail (Achatina fulica)
Assessment of the bacterial diversity in the different regions of GI tract of Giant African snail, A. fulica by culture‐independent and culture‐dependent methods suggested that bacterial community structure changes only in intestine when snail enters estivation state.

When DNA barcoding sequences were compared with the sequences of the conspecifics submitted from different geographic regions, nine cases of deep intraspecies nucleotide divergences were observed and NJ (Neighbour Joining) clustering analysis successfully discriminated all species.
DNA barcoding of Pentatomomorpha bugs (Hemiptera: Heteroptera) from Western Ghats of India
Diversity of Wolbachia in Odontotermes spp. (Termitidae) and Coptotermes heimi (Rhinotermitidae) using the multigene approach.
A striking diversity was observed among Wolbachia strains in closely related hosts based on five MLST genes (ftsZ, coxA, fbpA, hcpA and gatB) and the 16S rRNA gene.
Documenting the fauna of a small temporary pond from Pune, Maharashtra, India
A faunal inventory, with representative photographs, for a single, small temporary pond, reporting over 125 species of strictly aquatic fauna and 25 species of associated fauna, even though it did not identify some groups such as Protozoa, Diptera and nymphs of Odonata, etc.
