The complex of insect inhabitants of old larval galleries of Saperda populnea (L.) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) was studied during the period 2000–2003 in 18 localities in Bulgaria. As a result, 32 insect species were reared from old S. populnea galls: Metopoplax origani (Kolenati) (Heteroptera: Lygaeidae), Malachius sp. (Coleoptera: Malachiidae), Agrilus pratensis pratensis (Ratzeburg) (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), Xylocleptes bispinus (Duftschmidt) (Coleoptera: Scolytidae), Crossocerus cetratus… Expand

Faunistic, ecological, biogeographical and phylogenetic aspects of Coleoptera as gall-inducers and associates in plant galls in the Orient and eastern Palearctic
An attempt has been made to clarify the faunistics of coleopteran gall-inducers, interactions of Coleoptera with other gall-inducing arthropods, and their usefulness in terms of biological control and evolution, concentrating on select species from the Orient and eastern Palearctic fauna. Expand
Bats use larval galleries of the endangered beetle Cerambyx cerdo as hibernation sites
The results indicate that bats frequently use these specific roots, which emphasises the importance of this beetle species as an ecosystem engineer and the protection of C. cerdo can be an important component of the conservation of tree-dwelling bats. Expand
Abundance of syrphid larvae in willow plantations
This study shows that a higher diversity within the enemy-complex may have negative effects on the biological control of pests and that predators within the same guild are susceptible to predation in certain developmental stages. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships and taxonomic ranking of pipizine flower flies (Diptera: Syrphidae) with implications for the evolution of aphidophagy
The homogeneous morphology of the Pipizini clade in combination with their unique combination of characters among the Syrphidae suggest a change of rank to subfamily, including the subfamily Pipizinae stat. Expand
