ABSTRACT An annotated taxonomic and nomenclatural catalogue of the insect order Strepsiptera is presented. Known distributions and host associations are given as they are currently known. As of this publication, there are 627 valid species, 28 of which are known only from fossils. The misspelling of Viridipromontorius as Viridopromontorius n. syn. (Roy and Niladri, 2016) is corrected to include Viridipromontorius aequus n. comb. Caenocholax pierci is moved to the genus Myrmecolax and becomes… 
A generic classification of Xenidae (Strepsiptera) based on the morphology of the female cephalothorax and male cephalotheca with a preliminary checklist of species
TLDR
A critical evaluation of the classification of the genera of Xenidae is provided here based on morphology in accordance with results of recent molecular phylogenetic studies.
A New Species of Triozocera Pierce, 1909 (Strepsiptera: Corioxenidae) from Oman, with a New Distribution Record for Mengenilla Arabica Kinzelbach, 1979 (Strepsiptera: Mengenillidae)
ABSTRACT: Triozocera longipalpis n. sp. is described as the first species in this genus from Oman and the Middle East. This species is readily separated from other species of Triozocera due to its
The Taxonomy of Adult Females in the Genus Xenos (Strepsiptera: Xenidae) with a Re-description of the Females of Three North American Species
TLDR
Taxonomically important characters of females of the genus Xenos (Strepsiptera: Xenidae) are presented, which should provide for species level identification using females in the genus xenos, and these methods should be generally applicable to other strepsipterans.
Unexpected cryptic species diversity of parasites of the family Xenidae (Strepsiptera) with a constant diversification rate over time
TLDR
The constant rate in net diversification in the twisted‐wing parasite family Xenidae (Strepsiptera) can be explained by the flexibility of this parasitic group, represented by their ability to colonize new host lineages combined with passive long‐range dispersal by hosts.
A New Species of Xenos (Strepsiptera: Xenidae) from Colombia, with Comments on the Neotropical Species of the Genus
ABSTRACT The adult male of Xenos colombiensis n. sp. is described from a specimen extracted from the pupal case of its host, Polistes meyersi. While several species of Strepsiptera are known to
Xenosyangi sp. nov.: A new twisted-wing parasite species (Strepsiptera, Xenidae) from Gaoligong Mountains, Southwest China
TLDR
Combining the mitogenomic data (COI) and morphological traits, this species was identified to be a new species of the genus Xenos, namely Xenosyangi Dong, Liu & Li, sp.
A study of external morphological changes and the development time towards further understanding the biology of Elenchus yasumatsui Kifune & Hirashima (Strepsiptera: Elenchidae) male
TLDR
Investigation of the morphological changes and the development periods of the E. yasumatsui male revealed that the larval growth period was 10 days and the pupation time since the pupal cap extruding from the host abdomen was 3 days, which can be used for enhancing the success of biological control in N. lugens populations.
A double-edged sword: parental care increases risk of offspring infection by a maternally vectored parasite
TLDR
It is demonstrated that parental care can augment, rather than reduce, the risk of parasite transmission to offspring, with nest provisioning behaviour explaining ca 90% of the interspecific variation in mean parasitism.

A case of mistaken identification of an amber fossil male strepsipteran (Insecta: Strepsiptera)
TLDR
A well-preserved specimen of amber Strepsiptera was erroneously described as Stylops neotropicallis Kogan and Poinar, 2010; further observations showed that there are actually seven antennomeres, which places the fossil in the family Myrmecolacidae, and it is herein redescribed in the genus Palaeomyrmecolax Kulicka, 2001.
THREE NEW SPECIES OF THE GENUS PARAXENOS (STREPSIPTERA : STYLOPIDAE) PARASITIC ON BEMBIX (HYMENOPTERA : SPHECIDAE) OF SRI LANKA AND AUSTRALIA IN THE COLLECTION OF THE SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION (Notulae Strepsipterologicae-XVII)*
Paraxenos krombeini, P occidentalis, and P. australiensis spp. nov. (Strepsiptera : Stylopidae) are described on the basis of female specimens obtained from Bembh orientalis of Sri Lanka, and B.
Protoxenidae fam. nov. (Insecta, Strepsiptera) from Baltic amber — a ‘missing link’ in strepsipteran phylogeny
TLDR
A male specimen of a new strepsipteran genus and species found in Baltic amber is described and illustrated and shows features which are apparently more plesiomorphic than in hitherto known Strepsiptera.
Remarkable stasis in some Lower Tertiary parasitoids: descriptions, new records, and review of Strepsiptera in the Oligo-Miocene amber of the Dominican Republic
TLDR
These new findings are consistent with Kinzelbach's hypotheses of an ancient, Lower Cretaceous/Jurassic origin of the Strepsiptera, as well as higher-level cladistic relationships, and fossil dating of major host groups.
Review of the Australian genera of signal flies (Diptera: Platystomatidae)
The distribution patterns of platystomatid genera in the 12 recognized provinces of the Australasian Region are recorded. Notes are provided on biology and behaviour, including parasitism by fungi
STREPSIPTERA OF SOUTH FLORIDA AND THE BAHAMAS WITH THE DESCRIPTION OF A NEW GENUS AND NEW SPECIES OF CORIOXENIDAE
TLDR
This study reports five species from southern subtropical Florida, and one species from Andros Island, the Bahamas, of Strepsiptera, generally a widespread parasite of fire ants in the southern parts of North America, in the West Indies, and in the northern Neotropics.
Bahiaxenidae, a “living fossil” and a new family of Strepsiptera (Hexapoda) discovered in Brazil
TLDR
A new family Bahiaxenidae is suggested based on cladistic analyses of comprehensive morphological data sets with a broad taxon sampling including the stem group, unambiguously placed as the sister group of all other extant families of Strepsiptera.
The First Twisted-Wing Parasitoids (Insecta: Strepsiptera) from the Early Eocene Green River Formation of Colorado
TLDR
Two new species of Caenocholax (Strepsiptera: Myrmecolacidae) described here represent the first reported adult strepsipterans preserved as organic compression fossils and hint at an unappreciated fossil diversity of endoparasitic insects.
A new genus of Strepsiptera, Rozenia gen. n. (Stylopidae), a parasite of bee genera Acamptopoeum and Calliopsis (Andrenidae, Panurginae, Calliopsini)
TLDR
The first case of increased number of setae on the body of the first instars and augmentation of chaetotaxy of Strepsiptera are discussed.
A contribution to the knowledge of Dryinidae (Hymenoptera: Chrysidoidea) and Strepsiptera of Mozambique
TLDR
A new combination and a new name (Gonatopus maputensis) are proposed for Paradicondylus australis Olmi and the males of Gonatopusmaputensis, G. rubripes and G. guigliae are described for the first time.
