There was a low interspecific sequence divergence in six species groups so that for 16 out of the 99 species, the use of COI barcodes as species identifier should be done with care, and it is illustrated how such reference databases can improve local reference databases for forensic entomologists.
DNA barcoding and the differentiation between North American and West European Phormia regina (Diptera, Calliphoridae, Chrysomyinae)
The strong differentiation at COI, COII and cyt b as intraspecific mtDNA sequence divergence that should be taken into account when using P. regina in forensic casework or experimental research is considered.
Why is the molecular identification of the forensically important blowfly species Lucilia caesar and L. illustris (family Calliphoridae) so problematic?
Braconid wasps (Hymenoptera) of Reunion. 1. Euphorinae (including Meteorini): key to species and description of six new species
The Euphorinae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) collected in Reunion Island (Indian Ocean) is revised to a total of nine species, six of them being newly described.
First records on five species of Calliphoridae (Diptera) reared from maggot collected on rat carrions corpse during a forensic entomology experiment in the campus of the University of Yaounde…
Amongst the 1613 insects obtained from the emergence of maggots reared in the laboratory under ambient air temperature, the family Calliphoridae (Diptera) represents 72% (1161).
Utility of GenBank and the Barcode of Life Data Systems (BOLD) for the identification of forensically important Diptera from Belgium and France
Fly larvae living on dead corpses can be used to estimate post-mortem intervals and some forensically important fly species are not, or insufficiently, represented in the reference libraries.
Rainfall Influences Ant Sampling in Dry Forests
The standardized ‘Ants of the Leaf Litter’ protocol aims to facilitate the use of ground‐foraging and litter‐dwelling ants in biodiversity assessment and monitoring programs. It was initially…
New data on African Cheloninae (Hymenoptera, Braconidae) show a strong biogeographic signal for taxa with spined propodea
Eight species of Cheloninae (Hymenoptera, Braconidae) are newly described and several of them share the presence of spine-like apophyses on the propodeum and this character is cate-gorized for future phylogenetic use.
A phylogenetic analysis of the Mimagathidini with revisionary notes on the genus Stantonia Ashmead, 1904 (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Orgilinae)
Phylogenetic analyses including and excluding colour characters are presented and the results of various constrained analyses used to assess statistically the need for taxonomic changes lead to the recognition that Bentonia van Achterberg, 1992, is a derived group within Stantonia and the two genera are accordingly synonymized.
