Despite its potential value in phylogenetic and ecological studies, the morphology of antennal sensilla has rarely been compared quantitatively within the Apoidea. Here, through a scanning electron microscopy analysis, we provide an inventory of different types of antennal sensilla and compare their morphology across 10 species of predatory wasps (Crabronidae: Philanthinae) including species that hunt exclusively either on beetles or on bees to feed their larvae. A sensilla-free area was found… Expand
Flagellar Sensillar Equipment of Two Morphologically Closely Related Aphid Hyperparasitoids (Hymenoptera: Figitidae: Alloxysta)
TLDR
The comparison with the other species of Figitidae studied by far showed, at subfamily-level, that variability in sensillar equipment and phylogeny do not agree, which suggests a complex series of morphological changes during evolution of this group. Expand
Functional morphology of antennae and sensilla of Hippodamia variegata (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
The fine morphology of antennae as well as the typology, morphology and distribution of antennal sensilla of H. variegata were comprehensively examined by scanning electron microscopy and compared with other lady beetles from multiple perspectives. Expand
Antennal sensilla in male gall-wasps (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) and insights on the evolution of sexual dimorphism in cynipoid sensory equipment
TLDR
A possible hypothesis is that gall-inducing female cynipids may have evolved a richer sensillar equipment in response to female-only activities (e.g. plant host recognition), while cynipid males may have evolve higher density of sensilla devoted to mate recognition. Expand
Diverse Filters to Sense: Great Variability of Antennal Morphology and Sensillar Equipment in Gall-Wasps (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae)
TLDR
The first comparative study on antennal morphology and sensillar equipment in female Cynipoidea (Hymenoptera), a large and diverse group of wasps, with special reference to the so-called gall-wasps, suggests a tendency to decreased numbers of SP rows per flagellomere and increased relative size of SCo-A during cynipoid evolution.

Antennal sensilla analyses as useful tools in the revision of the sweat-bee subgenus Corynura (Callistochlora) Michener (Hymenoptera: Halictidae)
TLDR
A comparative study of antennal sensilla of the subgenus Corynura Michener, as well as a detailed morphological revision of the species, including characters of the genital capsule and the hidden sterna are provided. Expand
Antennal sensilla of cleptoparasitic and non-parasitic bees in two subfamilies of Apidae
TLDR
The morphology of antennal sensilla in solitary and cleptoparasitic bees of Apinae and Nomadinae is described and it was found that males of non-parasitic Bees showed a higher number of multiporous sensilla than males. Expand
Antennal morphology and sensillar equipment vary with pollen diet specialization in Andrena bees.
TLDR
A formal correction for phylogeny is necessary to confirm the preliminary conclusion that pollen diet specialization has driven the morphology of the peripheral sensory system in this bee genus Andrena. Expand
Development, Preimaginal Phases and Adult Sensillar Equipment in Aganaspis Parasitoids (Hymenoptera: Figitidae) of Fruit Flies
TLDR
Observations on the ovipositor revealed the presence of coeloconic sensilla on Valva I in both species, and shed light on parasitoid-pest relationships (sensillar equipment). Expand
Ants as prey for the endemic and endangered Spanish tiger beetle Cephalota dulcinea (Coleoptera: Carabidae)
TLDR
It is reported that C. dulcinea suffers potential risks associated with counter-attacks by ants while using them as prey at one of these marshes, and consequences on both chemosensory and locomotion abilities may be expected. Expand
Use of contact chemical cues in prey discrimination by Cerceris fumipennis
TLDR
It is proposed that CHC act as a kairomone for C. fumipennis, triggering attack, whereas classes of CHC not found in Buprestidae disrupt this response, and thus help to determine the prey range of the wasp. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that the morphology, numbers, and distribution of the sensory receptors are highly similar in these two closely related wasp species. Expand
Antennal sensilla of the click beetle, Melanotus villosus (Geoffroy) (Coleoptera: Elateridae)
TLDR
The typology, number and placement of antennal sensilla of the click beetle Melanotus villosus (Geoffroy) were studied using scanning electron microscopy and can be seen as morphological adaptation of this species of insect, whose specific behavioural reaction of olfactory searching is flying, both before and after contact with an odour plume.

Abstract Antennal sensilla were compared in females and males of two sympatric mymarid Hymenoptera, Anaphes victus and A. listronoti which are, respectively, solitary and gregarious parasitoids ofExpand
Distribution and morphometric studies of flagellar sensilla in Emphorini bees (Hymenoptera, Apoidea).
TLDR
G gustative and tactile sensilla were more abundant in female bees, as well as, olfactory receptors predominate in the antennal system of males, and patterns of distribution of setae determine the relative abundance of the types of sensilla in the flagellum. Expand
Relationship between antennal sensilla pattern and habitat in six species of Triatominae.
TLDR
The results support the idea that the patterns of antennal sensilla are sensitive indicators of adaptive process in Triatominae, and it is proposed that those species that inhabit less stable habitats possess more types of sensilla on the pedicel, and higher number of antenna sensilla. Expand
Sensilla numbers and antennal morphology of parasitic and non-parasitic bees (Hymenoptera : Apoidea)
TLDR
Compared antennal forms and sensilla of 114 species of bees, representing all major lineages, were compared to ascertain the relationship between sensory structures and behavior, finding similarities in search behavior of males (both parasitic and non-parasitic) and parasitic females, which in general may be more dependent on longer-range olfactory cues.
