Five new species of Disepyris Kieffer (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae) are described and illustrated: D. kenyaensis Lim & Azevedo, sp. nov. (Kenya), D. fessus Lim & Azevedo, sp. nov., D. mongoliaensis Lim & Azevedo, sp. nov., D. prolatatus Lim & Azevedo, sp. nov. (Mongolia), D. niveus Lim & Azevedo, sp. nov. (United Arab Emirates) and the genus is first recorded from Yemen, based on a female of D. guigliae (Benoit). The diagnosis of Disepyris is emended by a combination of following characteristics… 
Rediscovery of Disepyris semiruber (Kieffer) (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae) in Southern Africa, with first description of the male
ABSTRACT Holepyris semiruber Kieffer is redescribed and illustrated based on freshly collected specimens. Holepyris semiruber var. striatipleura Kieffer is considered a colour variant of this species
Anatomic glossary of mesopleural structures in Bethylidae (Hymenoptera: Chrysidoidea)
An anatomic glossary is produced that standardizes the terms used in the Bethylidae mesopleuron and in other Hymenoptera groups, which will facilitate hypotheses of primary homology in comparative biology.


Revision of the Neotropical Laelius (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae) with notes on some Nearctic species
A revision of the Neotropical species of Laelius is presented and keys for the identification of males and females of these species are provided and fourteen nomenclatural changes and additions are proposed.
Reclassification of Epyrini (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae): a tribal approach with commentary on their genera
The addition of new characters was essential to define Epyrini, and the ventral region of the mesosoma, petiole and male genitalia may help to better understand genera and species limits.
Phylogeny and reclassification of Laelius (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae) and description of four new species
This paper examined the taxonomic limits of this genus and tested whether species of the genera Laelius and Prolaelius Kieffer constitute a monophyletic group, finding that these genera form a single clade.
Phylogenetic analysis of Rhabdepyris (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae) and redefinition of generic limits based on morphological characters
A cladistic analysis based on morphological characters to test the monophyly of Rhabdepyris found it to be polyphyletic; the subgenus Trichotepyris was closely related to Anisepyr is whereas RhabDepyris str.
Folding Wings like a Cockroach: A Review of Transverse Wing Folding Ensign Wasps (Hymenoptera: Evaniidae: Afrevania and Trissevania)

Laelius Ashmead (Hymenoptera, Bethylidae) from Madagascar, with description of two new species
Laelius is recorded from the Afrotropical region for the first time, and two new species are described and illustrated and a key to the species of Madagascar is provided.
Morphology and evolution of the tarsal plantulae in Hymenoptera (Insecta), focussing on the basal lineages
The morphology of the plantulae (= tarsal pulvilli = plantar lobes), structures attached to the underside of the tarsus in Hymenoptera, was examined in 55 genera from all 14 families of the basal lineages and a few species of Apocrita using scanning electron microscopy.
Trends in evolution of ant wing venation (Hymenoptera, Formicidae)
The specific features of wing venation in representatives of various subfamilies are characterized, as well as differences in the evolutionary trends.
Insecta, Hymenoptera, Bethylidae: range extension and filling gaps in Yemens
Yemen is an Arab country occupying the southwest extremity of the Arabian Peninsula within the bounds of the Ethiopian region, according to the zoogeographic regions established by Wallace (1876). It
A Gross Anatomy Ontology for Hymenoptera
The Hymenoptera Anatomy Ontology provides a foundation through which connections between genomic, evolutionary developmental biology, phylogenetic, taxonomic, and morphological research can be actualized and is available through the OBO Foundry ontology repository and BioPortal.
