A new plant-feeding species of braconid wasp Allorhogas minimus Centrella & Shaw is described from Heredia Province in Costa Rica. The new species is diagnosed and compared with other species in the genus. This is the first record of an Allorhogas species from fruit galls on Miconia longifolia. 
Three new species of gall-associated Allorhogas wasps from Costa Rica (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Doryctinae)
TLDR
Three new species of braconid wasps from Costa Rica are described here and are the first records of an Allorhogas species associated with the plant families Burseraceae and Rubiaceae. Expand

Allorhogas cordobensis sp. nov. (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Doryctinae) is described from the province of Córdoba, Argentina. Its representatives can be distinguished from all other known species ofExpand
Seven new species of Allorhogas (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Doryctinae) from Mexico.
TLDR
Seven new Mexican species of the gall associated doryctine genus Allorhogas are described, illustrated and molecularly characterized and coccolobae was reared from leaf galls probably induced by an unidentified cecidomyiid on Coccoloba barbadensis Jacq. Expand
Six new species of Allorhogas (Hymenoptera, Braconidae, Doryctinae) from south and southeast Brazil with host-plant record
TLDR
Six new Brazilian species of the gall-associated Doryctinae genus Allorhogas are described and illustrated and host plant records for five of these species are provided, three and one of which are new host plant genera (Ilex L., Copaifera L. and Eugenia P. Micheli ex L.) and new host family (Aquifoliaceae) records, respectively. Expand
A new species of Allorhogas (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Doryctinae) inducing ovule galls on Miconia chamissois Naudin, a potentially invasive shrub in the Brazilian cerrado
TLDR
Different from other described species of Allorhogas that induce galls on fruits/seeds of Melastomataceae, the new species attacks floral bud ovules of Miconia chamissois Naudin, forming ‘fruit-like’ galls. Expand
Systematics and evolution of gall formation in the plant‐associated genera of the wasp subfamily Doryctinae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae)
TLDR
The results support the origin of true gall induction in the Doryctinae from parasitoidism of other gall‐forming insects and erects three new genera originally assigned to Psenobolus. Expand
New gall-associated species of Allorhogas (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), including a natural enemy of the weed Miconia calvescens (Melastomataceae)
TLDR
Nine species of the gall-associated doryctine genus Allorhogas Gahan (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) are described from Brazil and Costa Rica, with information that reveals that at least three of them feed on seeds. Expand
Cecidonius pampeanus, gen. et sp. n.: an overlooked and rare, new gall-inducing micromoth associated with Schinus in southern Brazil (Lepidoptera, Cecidosidae)
TLDR
Cecidonius pampeanus is a new genus and species of cecidosid moth from the Pampa biome, south Brazil and a phylogeny for Cecidosidae is inferred using sequences from mitochondrial and nuclear loci, and genetic variation and gene flow across ten populations are characterized. Expand
Insect Galls of Costa Rica and Their Parasitoids
TLDR
An independent inventory of Entedonini (Eulophidae) and the resulting taxonomic monographs allow for a more detailed analysis of this group, which shows that while the vast majority of Chrysonotomyia and Omphale species are probably associated with galls, very few have been reared: only 27 of 97 species, and 10 of 129 species, respectively. Expand
Beta diversity of four braconid subfamilies (Braconidae, Agathidinae, Braconinae, Doryctinae and Macrocentrinae) of the Ria Lagartos Biosphere reserve in Yucatan, Mexico, with some considerations on biological habits
TLDR
Phenological sequence indicates an influence of the rainy season in Braconid diversity, but its effects differed among braconid subfamilies and among the vegetation communities. Expand

Reclassification of Bracon mendocinus, a gall‐associated doryctine wasp, and description of a new closely related species of Allorhogas (Hymenoptera: Braconidae)
TLDR
The morphological examination of recently collected specimens from central Argentina associated with galls on Lycium chilense (Solanaceae), as well as on the DNA variation at 28S ribosomal RNA and cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI) mitochondrial DNA genes, result in conclusions that gall‐associated braconids should be removed from the subfamily Braconinae and transferred to the doryctine genus Allorhogas.

SEED PREDATION BY A BRACONID WASP, ALLORHOGAS SP. (HYMENOPTERA)

TLDR
The reproductive phenology of the cloud forest tree Protium tovarense (Burseraceae) is analysed for one population in northern Venezuela and evolutionary routes to phytophagy in braconid wasps and hypothetical scenarios in which this plant–seed predator interaction can be maintained are discussed.

Ecology and impact of Allorhogas sp. (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) and Apion sp. (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea) on fruits of Miconia calvescens DC (Melastomataceae) in Brazil
TLDR
While a variety of apionids have been used for biological control in the past, this is the first time a braconid wasp has been considered for Biological control of a weed. Expand
Biology of Mesostoa kerri (Insecta: Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Mesostoinae), an Endemic Australian Wasp that Causes Stem Galls on Banksia marginata
TLDR
A number of factors, including the absence of early-stage galls and substantial foliage growth distal to some galls in September–October, indicates that M. kerri has an annual life cycle, and data available for other Mesostoinae suggest that Banksia is the exclusive host group and all species are gall formers.

A single origin of gall association in a group of parasitic wasps with disparate morphologies.
TLDR
A scenario in which secondary phytophagy evolves from initially attacking primary gall-forming hosts is supported, and one of the main morphological features employed in the higher level classification of the Doryctinae is actually highly homoplastic. Expand
