Occurrence of Vespa velutina Lepeletier from Korea, and a revised key for Korean Vespa species (Hymenoptera: Vespidae)
The diagnosis and taxonomic relationship between geographical subspecies is provided, with a revised key to complement the previous taxonomic information of Korean Vespa species.
First Record of the Genus Elampus (Hymenoptera: Chrysidoidea: Chrysididae) from Korea, with a Key and Checklist of Current Valid Species of Korean Chrysididae
A checklist of the 45 current valid Korean species placed in the family Chrysididae is presented and a key to subfamilies, tribes, genera of Korean Chrysidaceae is provided.
Increase trend of social hymenoptera (wasps and honeybees) in urban areas, inferred from moving‐out case by 119 rescue services in Seoul of South Korea
The situation of the return of social hymenoptera to Seoul is presented and the possible reasons for the recent increase in social wasps in urban areas are discussed, including enlarging the green space inurban areas and stable nesting places, which benefited colony development due to the relatively higher urban temperature and the few natural predators and parasitoids.
New additions to the shallow-water hydroids (Cnidaria: Hydrozoa) of the French Lesser Antilles: Martinique.
The present report provides the first general account of the shallow-water hydroids of Martinique, French Lesser Antilles, with new, lesser known or unidentifiable species being described, while the common taxa are accompanied by brief remarks and/or distributional data.
Description of a new species of the genus Primeuchroeus Linsenmaier, 1968 (Hymenoptera, Chrysididae) from Korea and redescription of P. malayensis (Linsenmaier, 1982).
This is the first Palaearctic record of the genus Primeuchroeus and a comparison between the paratype of P. malayensis and Korean specimens revealing that the specimens belong to a new species described below.
Taxonomic review of genus Stenodynerus Saussure (Eumeninae, Vespidae, Hymenoptera) with description of a new species in Korea
Ten Korean eumenine wasp species of the genus Stenodynerus, including one new species and six newly recorded species, were taxonomically reviewed and the male of S. pappi was collected for the first time.
Taxonomic review of the genus ancistrocerus wesmael (hymenoptera: Vespidae: Eumeninae) from the far east, with a description of a new species from Korea
The opinion on the identity of A. densepilosellus is presented: it is more supportive that the Far Eastern population is the latter than the former, and revised key, description, recognition characteristics and digital images for all the treated species are provided.
Co-occurrence of ecologically equivalent cryptic species of spider wasps
It is reported that three phylogenetically closely related species are found sympatrically in Japan, indicating a lack of competitive exclusion, and this evidence may suggest that ecologically equivalent species can co-occur stably if their shared resources are sufficiently abundant that they cannot be over-exploited.
Redescription of Ectopioglossa taiwana (Sonan) (Hymenoptera: Vespidae: Eumeneinae) based on materials from Korea and Taiwan
Ectopioglossa taiwana (Sonan) is redescribed based on the specimens from Taiwan and Korea, including newly discovered males. This genus is newly recorded in Korea.
