Revision of the Terellia virens Group (Diptera, Tephritidae) with Description of Three New Species
TLDR
Three new species of uniformly greenish flies with white setulose abdomens and hyaline wings, variable in the characters of the male and female terminalia of the Terellia virens group are described and illustrated.
A new species of Tephritis Latreille (Diptera: Tephritidae) from Iran
Tephritis nozarii sp. n. from East Azerbaijan Province (NorthWest of Iran) is described and illustrated. It is similar to T. hendeliana Hering, T. hyosciami Linnaeus and T. multiguttata Becker in its
Genetic diversity of genus Vespa including an invaded species of V. velutina (Hymenoptera: Vespidae) in Korea inferred from DNA barcoding data
TLDR
It is demonstrated that DNA barcoding is a useful technique for rapid and accurate species recognition in Korean Vespa species and the genetic diversity among Korean VesPA velutina was zero suggests that the invasion might have occurred in a single event with small number of founders.
Invasion pathway of the honeybee pest, small hive beetle, Aethina tumida (Coleoptera: Nitidulidae) in the Republic of Korea inferred by mitochondrial DNA sequence analysis
TLDR
A Bayesian inference tree and median joining haplotype network revealed a strong relationship between South Korean and North American populations suggesting that the SHB in South Korea came from the USA, and low genetic variation among Korean populations suggests that the invasion might have occurred in a single event with small number of founders.
A New Species of the Genus Tephritis (Diptera, Tephritidae) from Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, and Iran
Tephritis tridentata S. Korneyev and Mohamadzade Namin, sp. n. reared from the flower heads of Jurinea baissunensis Iljin in South-Eastern Kazakhstan, Western Turkmenistan and Southern Iran is
A new species of Limnia Robineau-Desviody, 1830 (Diptera: Sciomyzidae) from Iran
A new species of the dipteran family Sciomyzidae is described from Iran: Limnia kassebeeri sp. n., which is similar to L. unguicornis (Scopoli, 1763) and L. paludicola Elberg, 1965, but differs from
First Report of the Wax Beetle, Platybolium alvearium Blair (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) from Nepal
TLDR
During recent expedition trip to Central Nepal, several specimens of darkling beetles associated with Eastern honeybee, Ap.
A new species of the genus Herina Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830 from Iran and Turkey (Diptera: Ulidiidae)
A hitherto unknown species of the dipteran family Ulidiidae is described from Iran and Turkey: Herina rajabii n. sp. is similar to H. gyrans (Loew) and H. tristis (Meigen), differing from them by the
Morphometric and molecular identification of the female castes of Bombus ignitus and B. ardens (Apidae: Hymenoptera)
TLDR
A polymerase chain reaction followed by restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) was developed to discriminate these similar species and allowed molecular identifications of these two species with unique profiles from the digestion by these restriction enzymes.
