Abstract A key is provided to twenty‐four western Palaearctic species of Urophora Robineau‐Desvoidy. The hosts of twenty‐three species which attack Asteraceae are listed, including those being used or investigated as possible weed biocontrol agents. The species are divided into four species groups and the differing host relationships and types of galls induced by these groups are discussed. U.lopholomae sp.n. and U.affinis ssp. calcitrapae ssp.n., associated with Centaurea (Lopholoma) spp. and… 
A revision of the genus Chaetorellia Hendel (Diptera: Tephritidae) including a new species associated with spotted knapweed, Centaurea maculosa Lam. (Asteraceae).
TLDR
The confirmed host-plants, knapweed, starthistles and related plants, belong to the genera Centaurea, Carthamus and Chartolepis (Asteraceae), and these are listed.
A revision of the genus Chaetorellia Hendel (Diptera: Tephritidae) including a new species associated with spotted knapweed, Centaurea maculosa Lam. (Asteraceae)
TLDR
Host-plant choice tests and canonical variates analysis were used to justify the separation of some species and to help identify some populations, and negative results in host tests suggest that some of these populations may represent additional undescribed species.
A new species of Urophora Robineau-Desvoidiy, 1830 (Diptera: Tephritidae) from Turkey, with a key to the species of the Urophora guadrifasciata group.
TLDR
The U. quadrifasciata group is redefined and a key to the 3 species included is provided and all species appear to induce galls, either in the flowerhead or on the upper or lower stem of host plants.
A New Species of Urophora Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830 (Diptera: Tephritidae) from Turkey
ABSTRACT: Urophora hani n. sp. associated with Centaurea babylonica (L.) in Turkey (type locality: Hatay, skenderun, Çerçikaya) is described and illustrated. It resembles U. congrua (Loew), U.

ABSTRACT A new species of the genus Isocolus Förster, 1869 (Hymenoptera, Cynipidae: Aylacini) is described. It induces galls on the capitula of Centaurea ornata Willd. (Asteraceae), an endemic of the
Revision of the Urophora xanthippe species group, with description of new species (Diptera: Tephritidae).
The xanthippe group of species of the genus Urophora Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830 is revised and keyed. It contains seven species with a yellow area on the scutum medial to the notopleuron: Urophora
The fruit flies of Morocco: new records of the Tephritina (Diptera, Tephritidae)
Based on the samples of the true fruit flies belonging to the subfamily Tephritinae collected in Morocco during 2016–2020, the genus Chaetostomella Hendel, 1927 and the species Myopites cypriaca
Tephritids of knapweeds, starthistles and safflower: results of a host choice experiment and the taxonomy of Terellia luteola (Wiedemann) (Diptera: Tephritidae)
TLDR
A host choice experiment was carried out to determine the host range of some potential biological control agents of yellow starthistle, a Mediterranean plant which has become a serious rangeland weed in western USA and confirmed the extreme host specificity of some species.
Musculature of the ovipositor of Lenitovena trigona (Matsumura) (Diptera, Tephritidae) with reference to the larval saprophagy
TLDR
The structure of the sclerites and musculature of the ovipositor of Lenitovena trigona (Matsumura) a Far Eastern tephritid of the tribe Acanthonevrini with initially saprobiont larva was investigated to facilitate understanding of the morphological changes in the adults associated with larval shift from saprophagous to herbivorous habit.
Study of the genus Urophora Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830 (Diptera: Tephritidae) in Ecebsir region with two species as new records for Iran.
TLDR
Two species of Urophora affinis and U. solstitialis are new records for the Iran insect fauna, based on specimens collected from Ecebshir area during 2009-2010.

The larvae of some British species of Gyrophaena Mannerheim (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae) with notes on the taxonomy and biology of the genus
TLDR
It is shown that hosts of a given species are often distantly related and any fungus with certain properties may be inhabited, and some preferred properties are: fungi that grow on wood, spore volume under 200, long period in which fruiting may occur, and host fungi fruit in July on average, i.e. earlier than non-hosts.
The Linnaean species of the family Tephritidae (Insecta: Diptera).
TLDR
The Linnaean Collection was examined; a syntypes of Tephritis hyoscyami and a possible syntype of Urophora solstitialis were identified and specimens illustrated by Aldrovandi and de Reaumur are designated as lectotypes.

TLDR
A cladistic analysis involving 27 tribes and subtribes of Asteraceae and 81 characters is presented, finding little support for the hypothesis that other tribes are derived from or have their sister group within the Heliantheae.

TLDR
The eggshell of two fruit flies of economic importance has been studied by means of light and electron microscopy and it is thought that the enzyme causes covalent cross-linking of the eggshell proteins producing a resilin-type configuration with rubberlike properties.
