Evolution: Taking the Sting out of Wasp Phylogenetics
TLDR
Two phylogenomic studies now resolve hymenopteran phylogeny and provide scenarios for the evolution of major lineages and key lifestyle transitions. Expand

Two new species of the genus Methocha from Laos (Hymenoptera, Tiphiidae)
TLDR
Two new species of Methocha, M. cariniventris and M. granulosa are described from Laos, both of which are new to science and have never been seen before in the wild. Expand
Phylogenomic analysis of Apoidea sheds new light on the sister group of bees
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses revealed that within the Apoidea, (eu)social societies evolved exclusively in a single clade that comprises pemphredonine and philanthine wasps as well as bees. Expand
Social Insects: Are Ants Just Wingless Bees?
New phylogenomic analyses suggest that ants and Apoidea (hunting wasps and bees) are more closely related than we had previously believed.
The bee tree of life: a supermatrix approach to apoid phylogeny and biogeography
TLDR
This study affirms the monophyly of each bee family, sister-taxa relationships between Apidae and Megachilidae (the ‘long-tongued bees’), between Collettidae and Stenotritidae, and between Colletidae + StenOTritidae and Halictidae, as well as support Melittidae as sister to the remaining bees. Expand
The sister group of Aculeata (Hymenoptera) - evidence from internal head anatomy, with emphasis on the tentorium
TLDR
The internal head anatomy of representatives of the relevant taxa, specifically the tentorium, musculature and glands are investigated, finding three potential candidates for the sister group of aculeate wasps: Ichneumonoidea, Evanioidea and Trigonaloidea. Expand
Review of the genus Eotilla Schuster, 1949 (Hymenoptera: Bradynobaenidae: Typhoctinae: Eotillini) and description of new species from Argentina.
TLDR
A key to the species of Eotilla is presented and a description of the female of E. superba is presented. Expand
Review of the hymenopteran fauna of New Caledonia with a checklist of species.
The hymenopteran fauna of New Caledonia is reviewed and compared with that of Australia and New Zealand, as well as other islands in the south-west Pacific. In conclusion, several different scenariosExpand

Phylogeny of the Ants: Diversification in the Age of Angiosperms
TLDR
Divergence time estimates calibrated by minimum age constraints from 43 fossils indicate that most of the subfamilies representing extant ants arose much earlier than previously proposed but only began to diversify during the Late Cretaceous to Early Eocene, which also witnessed the rise of angiosperms and most herbivorous insects. Expand
Phylogeny of the Hymenoptera (Insecta): The state of the art
TLDR
What the authors know about the higher‐level phylogeny of the Hymenoptera is summarized based on presentations given at a recent symposium on hymenopteran phylogenetics, which identifies agreement and conflict among morphological and molecular analyses and suggests important priority areas for future research. Expand
Modifications of the metapostnotum and origin of the ‘propodeal triangle’ in Hymenoptera Aculeata
The metapostnotum of aculeate Hymenoptera shows three trends of modification: simple reduction in Bethyloidea, invagination and reduction in Vespoidea and enlargement (forming the ‘propodealExpand
On the origin of the bees (Hymenoptera: Apidae, Sphecidae)
TLDR
A cladistic analysis results in accepting the "Sphecidae" as being paraphyletic in terms of the bees, leaving the Sphecinae + the Ampulicinae as the least specialized members of the complex. Expand
Morphology, Classification, and Antiquity of Melittosphex burmensis (Apoidea: Melittosphecidae) and Implications for Early Bee Evolution
TLDR
This specimen remains the earliest body-fossil evidence that pollen-collecting Apoidea (bees) were present approximately 20 million years after the origin of the eudicots, the major angiosperm lineage with extensive reliance on bee pollination. Expand
The major opsin in bees (Insecta: Hymenoptera): A promising nuclear gene for higher level phylogenetics.
TLDR
The phylogenetic utility of the nuclear gene encoding the long-wavelength opsin (LW Rh) for tribes of bees is reported, suggesting that LW Rh could provide important new data from the nuclear genome for phylogeny reconstruction. Expand
The phylogenetic position of the enigmatic wasp family Heterogynaidae based on molecular data, with description of a new, nocturnal species (Hymenoptera: Apoidea)
TLDR
The higher level phylogeny of the Apoidea based on sequence data of a nuclear gene, long‐wavelength (LW) opsin, is analysed for the first time and implies that Heterogynaidae may not have originated from a basal node within Apoides, and that the character states presumed to be plesiomorphies may instead be homoplasies.

Phylogeny and evolution of wasps, ants and bees (Hymenoptera, Chrysidoidea, Vespoidea and Apoidea)
The comprehensive cladistic study of family‐level phylogeny in the Aculeata (sensu lato) by Brothers & Carpenter, published in 1993, is briefly reviewed and re‐evaluated, particularly with respect toExpand
Phylogeny of the bee family Melittidae ( Hymenoptera : Anthophila ) based on combined molecular and morphological data
The bee family Melittidae comprises a small, but biologically fascinating, group of mostly oligolectic bees, some of which are oil collecting. Phylogenetic relationships within this family are poorlyExpand
Phylogeny and biogeography of the ant subfamily Myrmeciinae (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
TLDR
The myrmeciine ants appear to be a formerly widespread group that retained many ancestral formicid characteristics and that became extinct everywhere except in the Australian region, supporting the contention that many of the major lineages of ants arose at around the same time during a bout of diversification in the middle or late Cretaceous.
