A dichotomous and an interactive key to the species of Megarhyssa (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae) in America, north of Mexico are presented. A diagnosis accompanied by images is provided for male andExpand
The Ecology, Behavior, and Biological Control Potential of Hymenopteran Parasitoids of Woodwasps (Hymenoptera: Siricidae) in North America
Major gaps exist regarding parasitoid ecology, including their taxonomy, distribution range, exact siricid and tree hosts, interactions with hosts, phenology, and chemoecology in forest stands, and a better understanding of the biology of these parasitoids may be needed in coniferdominated landscapes.

Phylogeny of the Polysphincta group of genera (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae; Pimplinae): a taxonomic revision of spider ectoparasitoids
A cladistic analysis of the Polysphincta genus‐group, a clade of koinobiont ectoparasitoids of spiders, was undertaken using ninety‐six characters for seventy‐seven taxa, finding that, when the tropical fauna is better known, it will be possible to subdivide ‘Polys phincta’ as a genus. Expand
A new species of Grotea Cresson (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae, Labeninae) from Colombia
Abstract The genus Grotea has 18 described species. A new species, Grotea villosissima sp. n., is described here and its host information included. This is the first record of Grotea for Colombia.
Revision of North American species of Clistopyga (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae: Pimplinae)
The present revision extends the distributional range of the Neotropical species C. henryi Gauld, Ugalde, and Hanson, 1998 to the southern part of the Nearctic Region (northern Mexico), and the area of the nearctic speciesC. Expand
Two new species of the Polysphincta genus-group (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae: Pimplinae) reared from their spider (Araneae) hosts in Europe.

Detection and Identification of Two New Native Hymenopteran Parasitoids Associated with the Exotic Sirex noctilio in North America
This study marks the first association of R. crevieri and P. nigricornis with S. noctilio in North America and indicates cleptoparasitism of the exotic woodwasp rather than native siricids. Expand
First record of Acaenitinae (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae) from South America with description of a new species and a key to the world species of Arotes Gravenhorst
