Scelionid wasps (Hymenoptera: Scelionidae) are powerful egg parasitoids which have an efficient role in the biological control of agricultural pests, especially pentatomids (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae). The species diversity of these beneficial insects from Isfahan province is studied in this paper. Twenty species from 2 subfamilies, Scelioninae and Tele - nominae, were collected and identified. In this paper, the hosts of reared parasitoids are introduced together with the synonyms of scelionid… Expand
The family Torymidae (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea) of Kerman province, Southeastern Iran.
The family Torymidae (Hymenoptera.: Chalcidoidea) is an important group because of its role as agricultural pests or biocontrol agent pests in many ecosystems. Fauna of this family was studied in theExpand

Egg parasitoids of the pistachio green stink bug, Brachynema germari (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) in Kerman province, Iran
TLDR
Seven new host-parasitoid associations were determined and four species of them, i.e. T. deserticola, T. niceppe, O. oobius and O. egeria, are newly recorded from Iran. Expand
Contribution to the knowledge of Chalcidoidea (Pteromalidae and Eupelmidae) of Iran
TLDR
Chalcid wasps associated with plant galls, Rosa beggeriana Schrenk, Ephedra major (Host) and Salix alba L., were collected from the Kerman Province, south-eastern Iran during 2010-2011 and four species were identified, out of which E. martellii and M. fasciiventris are recorded for the first time from Iran.

Information from the mitochondrial genomes of two egg parasitoids, Gonatocerus sp. and Telenomus sp., reveals a controversial phylogenetic relationship between Mymaridae and Scelionidae.
The taxonomic status and phylogenetic affinities of Mymaridae and Scelionidae are controversial, based on similarities between these families in the characteristics of adults, larvae, and eggs. InExpand
Sown Wildflowers Enhance Habitats of Pollinators and Beneficial Arthropods in a Tomato Field Margin
TLDR
The results suggest that selected flowering plants can improve the field margin habitats for pollinating insects and beneficial arthropods, but more work is needed to elucidate the effect on crop pollination. Expand

The ecology and behavior of a subsocial pentatomid bug and two scelionid wasps : strategy and counterstrategy in a host and its parasites
TLDR
The tropical bug Antiteuchus tripterus and two parasites of its eggs, Trissolcus bodkini and Phanuropsis semiflaviventris, were studied in urban Cali, Colombia, and it was shown that the net effect of their defense against generalized egg predators is to greatly improve egg survival but that, paradoxically, theNet effect against the parasitic wasps is to decrease survival.
