Five new associations of parasitoids in potter wasps (Vespidae, Eumeninae). New associations of host and parasitoids involving potter wasps: Toxophora leucon and Pleurochrysis sp. were found parasitizing Cyphomenes anisitsii, Chrysis sp. (gr. intricans) was found parasitizing Minixi suffusum, Plega beardi was found parasitizing Montezumia pelagica sepulchralis and Macrosiagon sp. was found parasitizing Pachodynerus nasidens.

Bird dropping masquerading of the nest by the potter wasp Minixi suffusum (Fox, 1899) (Hymenoptera: Vespidae: Eumeninae)
The nest of Minixi suffusum offers a rare form of mimicry: bird dropping masquerading of the nest by the potter wasp was recorded in mid-western Brazil, in the municipality of Dourados MS. Nesting

A review of the biology of symphrasinae (Neuroptera: Rhachiberothidae), with the description of the egg and primary larva of Plega Navás, 1928
The egg and first larval instar of Plega are described and illustrated and the main characteristics of the genus are discussed in a comparative context of the known primary larva and egg of Mantispoidea.
Beetles (Coleoptera) of Peru: A Survey of the Families. Ripiphoridae Gemminger and Harold, 1870
Ripiphoridae have complex life strategies which allow them to colonize various habitats, from deserts to rain forests, from the sea level to mountains close to 3000 m, or even man-made environments, such as town parks or suburban environment, whenever the conditions are suitable for sufficient abundance of their host.
A review of the biology and biogeography of Mantispidae (Neuroptera)
Considering the biology, systematics, distribution of higher taxonomic levels and the fossil record, the historical biogeography of the group is critically discussed with Gondwana as the epicenter of Mantispidae radiation.
Frequency and consequences of the collection of already parasitized caterpillars by a potter wasp
It is concluded that the collection of parasitized caterpillars by D. dimidiantipenne is frequent and costly, and the persistence of this behavior may result from limited discrimination ability against parasitized prey by female potter wasps, or by their limited ability to exhibit choosiness under field conditions.
Coleoptera - Beetles


A common neotropical wasp established in Florida has characteristic mud potter-like nests that prey on geometrid caterpillars and are reused by various arthropods, forming an ecological web similar to that of other mud dauber wasps.
Observations on the biology of Anchieta fumosella (Westwood 1867) (Neuroptera Mantispidae) from Brazil
Biological observations on Anchieta fumosella (Westwood 1867) are presented, based on specimens found in association with a mud nest of the solitary wasp Trypoxylon (Tripargylum) aestivale Richards
A review of the genus Macrosiagon in Laos (Coleoptera: Ripiphoridae)
The genus Macrosiagon Hentz, 1830 (Coleoptera: Ripiphoridae) in Laos is reviewed. Four species of the genus are figured and keyed and their distribution discussed. First records of Macrosiagon
The 39 species of Mantispidae known from Brazil are described, keys are presented for their identification, and distributions recorded. Five new synonomies are proposed: Gerstaeckerella anchietai
Further records of 'Macrosiagon' (Coleoptera: Rhipiphoridae) reared from eumenid and sphecid wasps in Australia
'Macrosiagon capito' and 'M. novaehollandiae' are reported as parasites of the eumenid wasps 'Eumenes latreillei' Saussure and 'Odynerus' sp.
On the nesting biology of Pirhosigma Giordani Soika (Hymenoptera, Vespidae, Eumeninae), with special reference to the use of vegetable matter
The use of vegetable matter in nest building is reported for the first time for the two species of potter wasps Pirhosigma superficiale and P. limpidum.
Nest camouflage in the spider wasp Priochilus captivum (Fabricius, 1804) (Hymenoptera: Pompilidae), with notes on the biology
New prey records are presented, aspects of construction and camouflage strategy of the nests are described, and aspects related to the biology of the larva, longevity, sex ratio, reproductive success, and seasonal activities are reported based on active nests reared in the laboratory.
Report on the host associations of the genus Macrosiagon (Coleoptera: Ripiphoridae) in Sulawesi (Indonesia)
The family Pompilidae is recorded as a host group for the genus Macrosiagon for the first time and a review of known associations between the hosts and reared parasitoids is provided.
