The parasitoid complex attacking Finnish populations of the Glanville fritillary Melitaea cinxia (Lep: Nymphalidae), and endangered butterfly
Ten species of parasitoids were found in association with a large metapopulation of the Glanville fritillary Melitaea cinxia (L.) in a fragmented landscape in SW Finland. Two primary larvalExpand

Molecular phylogeny of the sawfly subfamily Nematinae (Hymenoptera: Tenthredinidae)
Abstract Nematinae is one of the largest subfamilies in the sawfly family Tenthredinidae, but internal relationships are unknown in the absence of any formal phylogenetic analysis. To understand theExpand

How common is ecological speciation in plant-feeding insects? A 'Higher' Nematinae perspective
BackgroundEcological speciation is a process in which a transiently resource-polymorphic species divides into two specialized sister lineages as a result of divergent selection pressures caused byExpand

The genera of Nematinae (Hymenoptera, Tenthredinidae)
Recent phylogenetic studies on Nematinae based on DNA sequences have shown extensive incongruencies with current nomenclature of genus-group taxa. Here, we expand previous DNA sequence datasets basExpand

Taxonomy of the species of Eupontania crassipes- and aquilonis-groups (Hymenoptera: Tenthredinidae: Nematinae)
The earlier lectotype designation for Nematus crassipes Thomson, 1871 by Kopelke (1989) is invalid. A new lectotype for Nematus crassipes is designated from Thomson’s collection; the female wasExpand

LARVAL HABITS, HOST-PLANT ASSOCIATIONS, AND SPECIATION IN NEMATINE SAWFLIES (HYMENOPTERA: TENTHREDINIDAE)
Abstract Adaptive radiations consist of two intertwined processes, diversification of species and diversification of their ecological niches, but it is unclear whether there is a causal link betweenExpand

Determinants of parasitoid communities of willow‐galling sawflies: habitat overrides physiology, host plant and space
Studies on the determinants of plant–herbivore and herbivore–parasitoid associations provide important insights into the origin and maintenance of global and local species richness. If parasitoidsExpand
