Vineyard managers and researchers seek sustainable solutions for mealybugs, a changing pest complex
TLDR
The mealybug pests and their natural enemies are reviewed to provide some clarification about current trends in biological control tactics and needed directions for future work.
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.
Annotated catalogue of the Hymenoptera of Russia. Volume II. Apocrita: Parasitica
TLDR
The first volume treats the all recent groups of parasitoids (11 superfamilies, 43 families, 1466 genera, about 10.6 thousand species) recorded in the fauna of Russia.
Egg parasitoids of Homalodisca coagulata (Homoptera: Cicadellidae).
TLDR
A limited survey of egg parasitoids of H. coagulata in California and also in the southeastern United States to assess the feasibility of a biological control program against this pest.
Morphological, biological, and molecular comparisons among the different geographical populations of Anagyrus pseudococci (Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae), parasitoids of Planococcus spp. (Hemiptera:
TLDR
Morphological and molecular studies as well as cross-breeding experiments revealed that the Argentine population is reproductively incompatible with and genetically different from all other populations tested, which cross-bred freely among each other and group together genetically.
Anagrus (Hymenoptera: Mymaridae) egg parasitoids of Erythroneura spp. and other leafhoppers (Homoptera: Cicadellidae) in North American vineyards and orchards: a taxonomic review.
TLDR
It is shown that a complex of several Anagrus species is associated with leafhopper hosts found on grape vines as well as on apple, blackberry, prune, and other plants that may occur near vineyards, and that E. variabilis is the only economically important grapevine pest in southern California, Arizona and northwestern.
Parasitoids of obscure mealybug, Pseudococcus viburni (Hem.: Pseudococcidae) in California: establishment of Pseudaphycus flavidulus (Hym.: Encyrtidae) and discussion of related parasitoid species
TLDR
To improve natural suppression of the obscure mealybug, Pseudococcus viburni (Signoret), the parasitoids Pseudaphycus flavidulus and Leptomastix epona of Chilean origin were released in California's Central Coast vineyards from 1997 to 1999.
Species identity of geographically distinct populations of the glassy-winged sharpshooter parasitoid Gonatocerus ashmeadi: morphology, DNA sequences, and reproductive compatibility
TLDR
Results from these three areas (morphology, DNA sequences, and reproductive compatibility) have been evaluated collectively; leading to the conclusion that G. ashmeadi as it is currently viewed is a valid species and not an aggregate of morphologically indistinguishable cryptic species.
Key to the Holarctic species of Anagrus Haliday (Hymenoptera: Mymaridae) with a review of the Nearctic and Palaearctic (other than European) species and descriptions of new taxa
TLDR
A checklist of 68 presently recognized species of Anagrus is given in accordance with their distribution in different biogeographic regions, based on a study of their type material.
