The New Zealand Peloridiidae fauna (3 genera, 13 species) is reviewed. Results published by Burckhardt (2009: Deutsche Entomologische Zeitschrift 56) and by Burckhardt et al. (2011: Zootaxa 2923) are reconciled with a study of specimens contained in New Zealand and overseas entomological collections and museums (over 2,400 specimens from more than 175 localities). A concise treatment of the taxonomy of all taxa is presented. New identification keys and descriptions are provided for genera and… Expand

Rapid range expansion of an invasive predatory snail, Oxychilus alliarius (Miller 1822), and its impact on endemic Hawaiian land snails
TLDR
Its high abundance, rapid rate of population expansion and probable negative impacts on certain species caution vigilance in preventing its introduction and spread to as yet uninvaded islands and locations is urged. Expand
IMPACT OF DIETARY DIVERSIFICATION ON INVASIVE SLUGS AND BIOLOGICAL CONTROL WITH NOTES ON SLUG SPECIES OF KENTUCKY
TLDR
This research demonstrated reductions in plant damage by D. reticulatum in treatments containing the North American carabid beetle Scarites quadriceps Chaudoir with the presence of alternative prey having no effect, supporting its use in biological control efforts in spite of its generalist feeding habits. Expand

Revision of the genus Acantholybas Breddin (Hemiptera: Coreidae)
TLDR
A revision of the genus Acantholybas Breddin was undertaken and species redescriptions are given and neotypes and lectotypes designated for A. kirkaldyi and A. brunneus, respectively. Expand
Tenebrionidae (Insecta: Coleoptera): catalogue of types and keys to taxa.
New Zealand's fauna of the family Tenebrionidae (Coleoptera) is recorded in a synonymic catalogue, presented alphabetically, which includes data on the primary type specimens. The composition of theExpand
Four new genera of Mesoveliidae (Hemiptera, Gerromorpha) and the phylogeny and classification of the family
TLDR
Habitat preferences of mesoveliids include humid terrestrial and/or marginal aquatic habitats, and lava-tubes, coastal caves, intertidal marine habitat, and the plant-covered freshwater surface, which probably are the derived kinds of habitats. Expand
Taxonomy and biogeography of Central European Kybos (Insecta, Hemiptera, Cicadellidae)
TLDR
The present study evaluates the morphological variation of the male genitalia and sound apodemes of the Central European species of the taxonomically difficult Holarctic typhlocybine genus Kybos and suggested that the variation of this structure has previously been underestimated. Expand
New Zealand cicadas of the genus Maoricicada (Homoptera: Tibicinidae)
TLDR
Ten cicada species from the South Island mountains are described as new and most species are characteristic of open, unforested sites; M. nigra nigra and M. oromelaena occur close to the summer snowline, a zone not known to be inhabited by cicadas elsewhere in the world. Expand
Zeonidicola(Coleoptera: Cavognathidae) — Beetles inhabiting birds' nests
TLDR
The endemic beetle fauna of the Chatham Islands is reviewed in relation to the probable history of the islands and the possible functional and phylogenetic significance of differences between the two species is discussed briefly. Expand
