Abstract. Surgical removal and larval transplantation experiments were carried out to evaluate behavioral manipulative effects caused by larvae of the polysphinctine ichneumonid, Reclinervellus nielseni (Roman, 1923), on its orb-weaving spider host, Cyclosa argenteoalba Bösenberg & Strand, 1906 (Araneidae). Residual behavioral effects on spiders from which parasitoid larvae had been removed were recognized and are described. Some transplanted parasitoid larvae also successfully consumed…

Sinarachna nigricornis and genus-specific host utilization of Araneus spiders by the genus Sinarachna (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae)
TLDR
The genus specificity of the cocoon web architecture described here, in which the typical cocoonweb exhibits a sparse but strong 3D architecture and in whichThe wasp cocoon is suspended by its apical end at the center, is expected for the genus Sinarachna.

Cyclosa omonaga (Araneae: Araneidae), an Alternative Host of the Spider Ectoparasitoid Reclinervellus nielseni (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae), with Notes on Behavioural Manipulation
Abstract Parasitism upon Cyclosa omonaga (Araneidae) by the ichneumonid ectoparasitoid Reclinervellus nielseni is reported for the first time, based on molecular identification, corroborating that R.
“Veils” Against Predators: Modified Web Structure of a Host Spider Induced by an Ichneumonid Parasitoid, Brachyzapus nikkoensis (Uchida) (Hymenoptera)
TLDR
The modified web seems resistant against predators and scavengers such as ants and is the first record of web modification demonstrating its resistance to predators.
Modification of Nephila clavipes (Araneae Nephilidae) webs induced by the parasitoids Hymenoepimecis bicolor and H. robertsae (Hymenoptera Ichneumonidae)
TLDR
A possible spider defence (molting) against polysphinctine parasitisation is documented, and it is shown that the alterations induced by H. bicolor make the webs more resistant to destruction.
A Parasitoid Wasp Induces Overwintering Behaviour in Its Spider Host
TLDR
It is discovered that the behavior evoked by larvae in two hosts was functionally similar, and the larva evoked protective behaviors that occur in unparasitized hosts only during specific life-history periods.
Life histories of two ichneumonid parasitoids of Cyclosa octotuberculata (Araneae): Reclinervellus tuberculatus (Uchida) and its new sympatric congener (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae: Pimplinae)
TLDR
In Japan, two species of the genus Reclinervellus were found to attack a single host spider, Cyclosa octotuberculata (Araneae), and one seemed to escape from competition with R. tuberculatus at the stage of oviposition and out‐competed it when asingle host individual bore larvae of both species.
Overwintering microhabitat selection by an Endoparasitoid (Hymenoptera: Aphidiidae): Induced phototactic and thigmokinetic responses in dying hosts
TLDR
Parasitized aphids showed negative phototaxis, thigmokinesis, and chose a dark rather than a light-colored substrate when seeking a site to mummify, but their behavior was not influenced by either gravity or the presence of another mummy.
Evolutionary patterns of host utilization by ichneumonoid parasitoids (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae and Braconidae)*
The four major biological strategies of ichneumonoid parasitoids, koinobiont and idiobiont, ecto-and endoparasitism, are discussed and the evolutionary radiations of the two families Ichneumonidae
UNDER THE INFLUENCE: WEBS AND BUILDING BEHAVIOR OF PLESIOMETA ARGYRA (ARANEAE, TETRAGNATHIDAE) WHEN PARASITIZED BY HYMENOEPIMECIS ARGYRAPHAGA (HYMENOPTERA, ICHNEUMONIDAE)
TLDR
The mechanism by which the larva of the ichneumonid wasp Hymenoepimecis argyraphaga induces the spider to perform highly stereotyped construction behavior and build an otherwise unique “cocoon web” that is particularly well-designed to support the wasp larva's cocoon.
