Abstract Background and aims. The Doryctinae is a considerably diverse, poorly studied group of parasitoid wasps and one of the most diverse subfamilies within Braconidae. Taxonomic knowledge of this group remains highly incomplete, specially in the tropics. In Mexico, it has been reported as the subfamily with the highest number of recorded genera. A preliminary Barcoding study carried out in the Chamela region, located near the Mexican pacific coast in Jalisco, identified 185 barcoding…

Systematics of the Neotropical braconid wasps of the Pedinotus genus group (Doryctinae)

It is proposed that the pattern of sublateral grooves or depressions appears to be a useful systematic character for recognition of an endemic Neotropical radiation that could have originated c.

Sequence-based species delineation and molecular phylogenetics of the transitional Nearctic–Neotropical grasshopper genus Taeniopoda (Orthoptera, Romaleidae)

The species-based phylogeny recovered Taeniopoda as paraphyletic with respect to the monotypic genus Romalea, and three morphologically and geographically congruent major clades were recovered, two with species having a considerably elevated pronotal crest and one with its members having it less elevated.

Species Delimitation of Scavenger Flies in the Valley of Mexico

This study highlights the utility of DNA barcoding as a first-step strategy to assess species richness of poorly studied scavenger fly taxa.

Cryptic Species Diversity of Rice Hopper Parasitoids in Southeast Asia

This is the first study on molecular diversity of rice parasitoids in the Philippines and more research is urgently needed to assess the performance and suitability of these organisms as biocontrol agents.

Preliminary Investigation of Species Diversity of Rice Hopper Parasitoids in Southeast Asia

This is the first study investigating the molecular diversity of rice hopper parasitoids in the Philippines and illustrates that characterization of species diversity using morphological and molecular analyses were concordant only for the genus Paracentrobia.

New lichenized Arthoniales and Ostropales from Mexican seasonally dry tropical forest

Abstract. Twelve new lichenized species are described in Arthoniales and Ostropales from seasonally dry tropical forest in Mexico: eight in Graphidaceae, one in Gomphillaceae, and one each in

Transcriptome profiling of venom gland from wasp species: de novo assembly, functional annotation, and discovery of molecular markers

This is the first study on the identification of large-scale genomic data and the discovery of microsatellite markers from V. tropica ducalis and V. analis fabricius to improve the understanding on bioactive proteins and venom-related genes in wasp venom gland and provide a basis for pests control and other applications.



DNA barcoding a highly diverse group of parasitoid wasps (Braconidae: Doryctinae) from a Mexican nature reserve

The preliminary results of a DNA barcoding study of the doryctine fauna of parasitoid wasps from the Chamela–Cuixmala Biosphere Reserve in Mexico are presented, pointing out the extraordinary species richness of this subfamily of insects in a Mexican tropical dry forest.

DNA barcoding species inventory of Microgastrinae wasps (Hymenoptera, Braconidae) from a Mexican tropical dry forest

Only five microgastrine species from Chamela were found to occur in other countries, four in Costa Rica and one in Canada and the United States, based on a comparison of nearly 20 000 barcoding sequences released for Microgastrinae from 75 countries.

Phylogeny of the genera of the parasitic wasps subfamily Doryctinae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) based on morphological evidence

This work investigated the ‘performance’ of characters from external morphology and the other character systems and the effects of abundant missing entries by comparing the data decisiveness, retention and consistency indices of four different character partitions, indicating that the morphological information in this group is subject to high levels of homoplasy.

Extreme diversity of tropical parasitoid wasps exposed by iterative integration of natural history, DNA barcoding, morphology, and collections

DNA barcoded 2,597 parasitoid wasps belonging to 6 microgastrine braconid genera reared from parapatric tropical dry forest, cloud forest, and rain forest in northwestern Costa Rica and combined these data with records of caterpillar hosts and morphological analyses to result in a much more fine-scaled understanding of Parasitoid diversity and host specificity.

Phylogenetic affinities of Monarea Szépligeti, 1904 (Hymenoptera: Braconidae, Doryctinae, with description of a new species from Mexico.

The genus Monarea Szépligeti is recorded from Mexico for the first time and Monarea is transferred to the tribe Holcobraconini, which is also supported by features of the internal ovipositor structure and the venom glands and reservoir.

The Doryctinae (Braconidae) of Costa Rica: genera and species of the tribe Heterospilini

A comprehensive taxonomic study is presented for the four genera and 286 species of the doryctine tribe Heterospilini occurring in Costa Rica, with new genus and species described and illustrated.

Five new species of the genera Heerz Marsh, Lissopsius Marsh and Ondigus Braet, Barbalho and van Achterberg (Braconidae, Doryctinae) from the Chamela-Cuixmala biosphere reserve in Jalisco, Mexico

Systematics and evolution of gall formation in the plant‐associated genera of the wasp subfamily Doryctinae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae)

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.
