A phylogenetic analysis of the megadiverse Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera)
TLDR
The first phylogenetic analysis of the superfamily Chalcidoidea based on both morphological and molecular data is presented and several life‐history traits are mapped onto the new phylogeny.
A Molecular Phylogeny of the Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera)
TLDR
This first comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of the superfamily Chalcidoidea based on a molecular analysis of 18S and 28S ribosomal gene regions for 19 families, 72 subfamilies, 343 genera and 649 species finds no impact of alignment method, and few but substantial differences between likelihood and parsimony approaches.
Ophelimus mediterraneus sp. n. (Hymenoptera, Eulophidae): a new Eucalyptus gall wasp in the Mediterranean region
TLDR
This study reports here for the first time the presence of Ophelimus mediterraneus sp.
Advanced Techniques for Imaging Parasitic Hymenoptera (Insecta)
TLDR
Lighting techniques designed for imaging parasitic Hymenoptera in the superfamilies Chalcidoidea and Cynipoidea are described, applicable to all small insects, as well as other invertebrates.
The identity and reinstatement of Homalodisca liturata ball and Phera lacerta fowler (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae)
TLDR
Phera lacerta Fowler, combination restored, is transferred back to its original genus and Homalodisca liturata Ball is removed from synonymy with P. Lacerta.
First report of the Eucalyptus gall wasp, Ophelimus maskelli (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae), an invasive pest on Eucalyptus, from the Western Hemisphere.
Ophelimus maskelli (Ashmead) (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) was found in southern California, USA, on March 17, 2014, in Riverside County, University of California Riverside Campus (UCR), and has been
Combined molecular and morphological phylogeny of Eulophidae (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea), with focus on the subfamily Entedoninae
TLDR
A new combined molecular and morphological phylogeny of the Eulophidae is presented with special reference to the subfamily Entedoninae, and the impact of a small set of historically recognized morphological characters on combined analyses is examined.
Subforaminal bridges in Hymenoptera (Insecta), with a focus on Chalcidoidea.
Systematics of the parasitic wasp genus Oxyscelio Kieffer (Hymenoptera, Platygastridae s.l.), part II: the Australian and southwest Pacific fauna
TLDR
The Australasian and southwest Pacific species of Oxyscelio (Hymenoptera: Platygastridae s.l.) are revised and 60 new species are described, many representing new distributional records for the genus.
Systematics of the parasitic wasp genus Oxyscelio Kieffer (Hymenoptera, Platygastridae s.l.), Part I: Indo-Malayan and Palearctic fauna
Abstract The Indo-Malayan and Palearctic species of Oxyscelio (Hymenoptera: Platygastridae s.l.) are revised. A total of 90 species are recognized as valid, 19 of which are redescribed - Oxyscelio
