Northward range expansion by Nezara viridula (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) in Shikoku and Chugoku Districts, Japan, possibly due to global warming
Field surveys and light trap catches of Nezara viridula and N. antennata (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) in Shikoku and Chugoku Districts, Japan showed that N. viridula is now distributed along theExpand
Key‐factor/key‐stage analysis of long‐term life table data for a fruit gall midge, Asphondylia sphaera (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae)
1. Population dynamics of Asphondylia sphaera Monzen (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae), a species that induces fruit galls on Ligustrum japonicum (Oleaceae), was studied from 1970 to 1996 in broad‐leavedExpand
Influence of the introduced parasitoid Torymus sinensis (Hymenoptera: Torymidae) on T. koreanus and T. beneficus as indigenous parasitoids of the chestnut gall wasp Dryocosmuskuriphilus (Hymenoptera:
We describe here the parasitoid wasps Torymus sinensis Kamijo and T. beneficus Yasumatsu & Kamijo (early-spring and late-spring strains), which are introduced and indigenous natural enemies of theExpand
A taxonomic issue of two species of Trissolcus (Hymenoptera: Platygastridae) parasitic on eggs of the brown-winged green bug, Plautia stali (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae): resurrection of T. plautiae, a
Trissolcus plautiae (Watanabe) is known as a major egg parasitoid of the brown-winged green bug Plautia stali Scott, which is a serious pest of various fruit trees in Japan. Although T. plautiae wasExpand
Two new species of Torymus Dalman, 1820 (Hymenoptera: Torymidae) parasitizing Celticecis japonica Yukawa and Tsuda, 1987 (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) that induce leaf galls on Celtis species (Ulmaceae)
Torymus celticolus Matsuo sp. nov. and Torymus celtidigalla Matsuo sp. nov. (Hymenoptera: Torymidae) are described as parasitoids of larvae of Celticecis japonica Yukawa & Tsuda, 1987 (Diptera:Expand
Host range of braconid species (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) that attack Asphondyliini (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) in Japan
We reared six idiobiont braconids, Bracon asphondyliae, B. sunosei, B. tamabae, Simplicibracon curticaudis, Testudobracon longicaudis and T. pleuralis from 22 identified species and 11 unidentifiedExpand
Arms race between leaf rollers and parasitoids: diversification of plant‐manipulation behavior and its consequences
Understanding the determinants of community structure remains a challenging ecological task; the plant–host insect–parasitoid community is a particularly important community because of itsExpand
Geographical and annual variations in the proportion of extended diapausing individuals of Illiciomyia yukawai (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) with reference to an adaptive significance of its bimodal
Illiciomyia yukawai (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) induces leaf galls on Illicium anisatum (Schisandraceae) and exhibits 1‐year (yr) and 2‐yr type life history patterns. Geographical and annual variationsExpand
Syntheses and Properties of Novel Cyclic Sulfilimines, 2-Azathiabenzene Derivatives
Novel cyclic sulfilimines (so-called azathiabenzenes), 2-methyl-1-aza-2-thianaphthalene (7) and 9-methyl-(14a) or 9-ethyl-10-aza-9-thiaphenanthrene (14b), were synthesized in high yields byExpand
