On the vertical distribution of bees in a temperate deciduous forest
Abstract. 1. Despite a growing interest in forest canopy biology, very few studies have examined the vertical distribution of forest bees. In this study, bees were sampled using 12 pairs of… Expand
Testing the validity of Northern European species in the Chrysis ignita species group (Hymenoptera: Chrysididae) with DNA barcoding.
Containing more than a hundred species, the Chrysis ignita species group is the largest and one of the most taxonomically challenging groups in its genus. It has not been possible to resolve the… Expand

A critical and annotated review of published records of the Chrysididae of the Nordic and Baltic countries and the Russian part of Fennoscandia is presented with some taxonomic and faunistic notes. A… Expand
Mitochondrial phylogeny of the Chrysisignita (Hymenoptera: Chrysididae) species group based on simultaneous Bayesian alignment and phylogeny reconstruction.
The ignita species group within the genus Chrysis includes over 100 cuckoo wasp species, which all lead a parasitic lifestyle and exhibit very similar morphology. The lack of robust, diagnostic… Expand
Host specificity of the tribe Chrysidini (Hymenoptera: Chrysididae) in Estonia ascertained with trap-nesting
Cuckoo wasps (Chrysididae) are a medium-sized and widespread family of Hymenoptera whose species are generally para- sitoids or cleptoparasites of solitary wasps and bees. The identities of the hosts… Expand
Vertical Distribution and Seasonality of Predatory Wasps (Hymenoptera: Vespidae) in a Temperate Deciduous Forest
Efforts to investigate the vertical dimension of forests continue to refine our thinking on issues of biodiversity and ecology. Arthropod communities exhibit a high degree of vertical stratification… Expand

Cryptic species complexes cause major challenges for taxonomists and alter understanding of species diversity. In Northern Europe, the Chrysis ignita species group is one such complex with numerous… Expand
Empria longicornis species group: taxonomic revision with notes on phylogeny and ecology (Hymenoptera, Tenthredinidae).
The Empria longicornis species group (Hymenoptera, Tenthredinidae) is revised. Empria japonica Heidemaa & Prous, sp. nov. is described from Japan. The lectotypes of Empria gussakovskii… Expand
