PlutoF—a Web Based Workbench for Ecological and Taxonomic Research, with an Online Implementation for Fungal ITS Sequences
The web-based workbench PlutoF is described, which is designed to bridge the gap between the needs of contemporary research in biology and the existing software resources and databases.
The genera of Nematinae (Hymenoptera, Tenthredinidae)
This work expands previous DNA sequence datasets on Nematinae based on DNA sequences to show extensive incongruencies with current nomenclature of genus-group taxa.
Completing Linnaeus’s Inventory of the Swedish Insect Fauna: Only 5000 Species Left
The size and composition of the Swedish insect fauna, thought to represent roughly half of the diversity of multicellular life in one of the largest European countries, is reported on, and it is suggested that it comprises around 33,000 species.
Identification of sawflies and horntails (Hymenoptera, ‘Symphyta’) through DNA barcodes: successes and caveats
The utility of barcoding for species identification and taxonomy of ‘Symphyta’ is discussed on the basis of examples from each of the included families, and a significant level of cryptic species diversity was apparent in many groups.
Sawfly taxa (Hymenoptera, Symphyta) described by Edward Newman and Charles Healy
Type specimens of seven nominal species of sawfly described by Edward Newman and one by Charles Healy were studied and 26 new combinations are proposed for species formerly placed in Hartigia and here transferred to Phylloecus.
Empria longicornis species group: taxonomic revision with notes on phylogeny and ecology (Hymenoptera, Tenthredinidae).
The Empria longicornis species group (Hymenoptera, Tenthredinidae) is revised and external morphology, morphometrics, and DNA sequences are used to delimit species within the group and to assess their phylogenetic relationships.
North-Western Palaearctic species of Pristiphora (Hymenoptera, Tenthredinidae)
North-Western Palaearctic species of Pristiphora Latreille, 1810 are revised and the following 29 new synonymies are proposed: P. caraganae Vikberg & Prous, sp.
Review of the sawfly genus Empria (Hymenoptera, Tenthredinidae) in Japan
Eleven Empria species from Japan are reported from Japan and results of phylogenetic analyses using mitochondrial (COI) and nuclear (ITS1 and ITS2) sequences are also provided.
The Sawflies of Crete (Hymenoptera, Symphyta)
The sympatric occurrence of three related Pristiphora species on Acer sempervirens, two of which differ in their choice of host individuals that are at different stages of vegetative development, is remarkable.
North-Western Palaearctic species of the Pristiphora ruficornis group (Hymenoptera, Tenthredinidae)
The Pristiphora ruficornis group, defined here based on the structure of the penis valve and the genetic data, includes morphologically and genetically highly similar species that remain…
