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.
Australian species of Anachloris Meyrick (Lepidoptera: Geometridae: Larentiinae): taxonomy, musculature of the male genitalia and systematic position
The skeletomuscular system of the male genitalia and the structure of the female genitalia of Hydriomena impluviata from Europe are compared with those of A. uncinata from Australia, suggesting that Anachloris does not belong to the tribe hydriomenini.
The structure and musculature of male terminalia in the tribe Xanthorhoini Pierce and related tribes (Lepidoptera: Geometridae: Larentiinae), with particular reference to the Palaearctic and

The musculature of the male genitalia was reviewed for the tribe Xanthorhoini and related tribes (Lepidoptera, Geometridae, Larentiinae) and confirmed the previously uncertain separation of Euphyiini and Scotopterygini.
Comparison of the structure and musculature of male terminalia in the tribe Cidariini Duponchel (Lepidoptera: Geometridae: Larentiinae) once again throws into doubt a sister relationship with the
A comparative analysis of the musculature in the tribes Cidariini and Xanthorhoini questions the sister relationship of these tribes that was suggested by earlier studies.
Cladistic Assessment , Key and Description of Two New Neotropical Genera and Species of Gabuniina ( Hymenoptera : Ichneumonidae : Cryptinae )
—Phe Cryptini Fenixia n. gen., from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, and Dineotropica n. gen., from the Amazon basin, are proposed, described, and cladistically compared with literature data for
Myths and facts about the absence of socii in the male genitalia of Larentiinae (Lepidoptera: Geometridae)
The study reveals that the socii are widely present in the European Larentiinae, the largest group of moths of the family Geometridae.
One century after: a reappraisal of the gnathos (sensu Pierce, 1914) in Larentiinae (Lepidoptera: Geometridae).
A re-examination of the male genitalic characters of numerous larentiine species representing 14 different tribes provided, contrary to Pierce's results, evidence for the presence of the gnathos in Larentiinae.
The Mt Halimun-Salak Malaise Trap project - releasing the most species rich DNA Barcode library for Indonesia
The astonishing heterogeneity of BINs, as high as 1.1 exclusive BIN per specimen of Diptera successfully processed, shows that the cost/benefit relationship of the discovery of new species in those areas is very low, and how fast molecular pipelines contribute substantially to the objective inventorying of the fauna gives a good picture of how potentially diverse tropical areas might be.
A streamlined collecting and preparation protocol for DNA barcoding of Lepidoptera as part of large-scale rapid biodiversity assessment projects, exemplified by the Indonesian Biodiversity Discovery
A general collecting and preparation protocol for DNA barcoding of Lepidoptera as part of large-scale rapid biodiversity assessment projects, and a comparison with alternative preserving and vouchering methods are presented.
From field courses to DNA barcoding data release for West Papua - making specimens and identifications from university courses more sustainable
The study suggests that DNA barcoding applied to university courses achieves several goals, including capacity building and hands-on learning, and can provide valuable biodiversity data that are globally available to researchers for further studies.
