Genetic Evolution of Asian Predatory Wasp, Vespa velutina, in Northern of Thailand Based on Cytochrome Oxidase Subunit I DNA Barcoding
It is concluded that COI could be used as the powerful DNA barcode for Vespa spp.
Emerging patterns in social wasp invasions.


Genetic variations of DNA barcoding region of bumble bees (Hymenoptera: Apidae) from South Korea
DNA barcoding is a useful technique for species recognition and for allopatric and sympatric haplotype detection in bumble bees and it is demonstrated that B. (Megabombus) diversus is detected in South Korea for the first time.
Checklist of the species in the subfamily Vespinae (Insecta : Hymenoptera : Vespidae)
A checklist of the species in the subfamily Vespinae is presented, including synonyms and distributional summaries. Sixty-seven extant species in four genera are treated as valid, with an additional
A phylogenetic study of the species of the genus Vespa (Hymenoptera: Vespinae)
A phylogenetic analysis with the program Hennig86 is performed on the 23species of the genus Vespa, using the Polistinae and the remaining species of the Vespinae as outgroups, and the following species groups are resolved as being of uncertain relationships.
Phylogeny of hornets: a total evidence approach (Hymenoptera, Vespidae, Vespinae, Vespa)
The monophyly of the genus Vespa and the existence of a main clade excluding V. basalis and V. binghami are confirmed and the tropica group is supported; the affinis group is not supported; molecular data relate the previously unresolved V. orientalis to V. affinis + V. mocsaryana.
The origin and genetic diversity of the yellow-legged hornet, Vespa velutina introduced in Japan
The genetic structure of V. velutina is investigated to infer the origin of Japanese populations and it is revealed that the yellow-legged hornet consists of an Indonesian–Malaysian clade and an Asian Continent clade, although some Indonesian samples are included in the latter clade.
Newly discovered colour-pattern polymorphism of Bombus koreanus females (Hymenoptera: Apidae) demonstrated by DNA barcoding
Bombus (Megabombus) koreanus (Skorikov) is a long-tongued bumblebee that specialises in visiting deep flowers. To describe the distribution, colour-pattern variation and food plants of B. koreanus,
DNA barcoding reveals the occurrence of cryptic species in host-associated population of Conogethes punctiferalis (Lepidoptera: Crambidae)
M morphological studies and DNA barcode analyses using cytochrome oxidase I gene unraveled the mystery of C. punctiferalis breeding on castor and cardamom and showed an amount of genetic divergence between the two host-associated populations compatible with cryptic species rather than host races.
Checklist and Distribution of Korean Vespidae Revisited
The list of Korean Vespidae determined except for Eumeninae, with their distributional data is provided, which made a final summarization of research on Vespaceae.
Genes Suggest Ancestral Colour Polymorphisms Are Shared across Morphologically Cryptic Species in Arctic Bumblebees
It is shown that there is support for nine species in the subgenus Alpinobombus, and examination of the more slowly evolving nuclear PEPCK gene shows further support for a previously unrecognised taxon as a new species in northwestern North America.
