TLDR
A global guide of the flat wasp family Bethylidae with diagnoses, taxonomic evaluation, keys, and a checklist of all their extant genera and subfamilies is presented.
Opening Pandora's box of Pristocerinae: molecular and morphological phylogenies of Apenesia (Hymenoptera, Bethylidae) reveal several hidden genera
TLDR
Apenesia is now defined as flat wasps having males with the mesoscutum gibbous, the genitalia with the paramere narrow and densely hairy, and the aedeagus with the ventral apical lobe elliptical and covered with lumps.
Definition of the coronatus species-group (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae, Dissomphalus ) with description of thirteen new species
TLDR
The following thirteen new species of Dissomphalus from the Neotropical region are described and illustrated and the coronatus group is suggested to accommodate them.
Reclassification of Epyrini (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae): a tribal approach with commentary on their genera
TLDR
The addition of new characters was essential to define Epyrini, and the ventral region of the mesosoma, petiole and male genitalia may help to better understand genera and species limits.
Couples in phoretic copulation, a tool for male-female association in highly dimorphic insects of the wasp genus Dissomphalus Ashmead (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae)
TLDR
The mating system based on couples of six Dissomphalus species collected during copulation is discussed and the genital structures used during phoretic copulation are discussed, analyzing the male and female genitalia in copulation.
A new species-group of Dissomphalus (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae), with description of thirteen new species
TLDR
Feature of the basal portion of the dorsal body of the male genitalia are defined and described for the first time, including the basal bar, the connector and the basal plate in the microstictus species-group.
Review of Neurepyris Kieffer, 1905 (Hymenoptera, Bethylidae), a new synonym of Pristocera Klug, 1808
TLDR
The genus Neurepyris is considered a junior synonym of Pristocera because its type species is N. rufiventer and both species have the metanotum well developed medially.
Pairs in copulation of the highly dimorphic genus Pristocera Klug (Hymenoptera, Bethylidae) from Madagascar solve taxonomic problems of male-female associations.
TLDR
The main goal of this paper is to update the taxonomic information of the pairs of Pristocera Klug collected in Madagascar by A. Seyrig and recognize ten species, ten of which are new to science, all based on pairs collected in copulation.
New species and records of Dissomphalus Ashmead (Hymenoptera, Bethylidae) from Cerrado, Caatinga and relicts of the Atlantic Forest from northeastern Brazil.
TLDR
The main goal of this paper is to study the Dissomphalus material deposited at the Coleção Zoológica do Maranhao (Maranhão, Brazil), which contains material collected in six parks and recognizes forty species, including newly described species.
