Mating behavior and sexual selection in a polygamous beetle
TLDR
Mating behavior and sexual selection in relation to morphometric traits in a polygamous beetle, Glenea cantor (F.) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae), were investigated and larger males were more capable of grasping females and achieving mating. Expand
Entomopathogenic fungi disturbed the larval growth and feeding performance of Ocinara varians (Lepidoptera: Bombycidae) larvae
TLDR
Feeding experiments using three strains of entomopathogenic fungi with newly moulted 3rd–5th instar Ocinara varians Walker larvae suggest that all the studied fungal strains have a high potential for biocontrol and could be developed into biocOntrol agents against O. varians. Expand
Behavioral and electrophysiological responses of Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki towards entomopathogenic fungal volatiles
TLDR
This study demonstrates the pathogenicity of Metarhizium anisopliae, Beauveria bassiana and Isaria fumosorosea towards the Formosan subterranean termite, Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki, and concludes that the incorporation of I. fumosea may increase the control potential of bait. Expand
In vitro and in vivo culturing impacts on the virulence characteristics of serially passed entomopathogenic fungi.
TLDR
The results indicated that the influence of nutritional conditions on fungal growth and sporulation is strain dependent and serial subculturing of entomopathogenic fungi on PDA significantly affects the level of infection. Expand
The cephalic morphology of free-living and cave-dwelling species of trechine ground beetles from China (Coleoptera, Carabidae)
TLDR
External and internal cephalic features of free-living and cave-dwelling trechine carabid beetles are described and illustrated using digital microscopy, SEM, micro-CT, and computer-based 3D reconstruction. Expand
Genetic diversity of Diaphorina citri and its endosymbionts across east and south-east Asia.
TLDR
Investigating the genetic diversity and population structures of 24 populations in Asia and one from Florida based on the mtCOI gene indicated that populations of D. citri and its endosymbionts in east and south-east Asia were genetically distinct from populations in Pakistan and Florida. Expand
Phenology and Laboratory Rearing Procedures of an Asian Longicorn Beetle, Glenea cantor (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae: Lamiinae)
TLDR
Glenea cantor (F.) is an Asian longicorn beetle whose larvae bore under the bark of living trees of at least seven plant families and enter the wood for pupation, and procedure 3 is the most effective method for maintaining a laboratory colony. Expand
Contributions to the knowledge of subterranean trechine beetles in southern China’s karsts: five new genera (Insecta, Coleoptera, Carabidae, Trechinae)
TLDR
It is revealed that southern China’s karsts hold the most diverse and morphologically modified subterranean trechine beetles in the world, albeit the first troglobitic blind beetle was only reported in the early 1990s. Expand
Six new species of dragon millipedes, genus Desmoxytes Chamberlin, 1923, mostly from caves in China (Diplopoda, Polydesmida, Paradoxosomatidae)
TLDR
Six new species of Desmoxytes are described from southern China, including three new species from caves in Guangdong Province, and a modified key to all 20 Desm oxygentes species currently known to occur in China is given. Expand
A new subgenus and two new species of the troglobitic genus Dongodytes Deuve from Guangxi, China (Coleoptera, Carabidae)
TLDR
A new subgenus and two new species of the cave-dwelling genus Dongodytes Deuve, 1993 are described and illustrated and from Du’an Xian, North Guangxi, China. Expand
