Abstract In morphology, coloration, and size, Pseudabispa wasps (Hymenoptera: Vespidae: Eumeninae) closely resemble mason wasps in the genus Abispa, and their distributions overlap. Although these two genera are among the largest solitary wasps in Australia, the biology of Pseudabispa was not previously known. Field observations from near Katherine, Northern Territory, strongly suggest that P. paragioides (Meade-Waldo) females attack and kill female A. ephippium (Fabricius) and usurp their…

Vespula squamosa: A Yellow Jacket Wasp Evolving Toward Parasitism
TLDR
Evidence from behavior and from nest architecture implicates Vespula squamosa as a temporary, apparently facultative social parasite of V. maculifrons, and an apparent violation of Emery's long-standing generalization suggests that pressures leading to the evolu(t) 4 tion of temporary, evidently facultatise parasitism by V. squamiiosa queens cannot be conclusisels determined.
Nesting Behavior of Abispa ephippium (Fabricius) (Hymenoptera: Vespidae: Eumeninae): Extended Parental Care in an Australian Mason Wasp
TLDR
The genus Abispa includes Australia's largest wasps, potters with distinctive mud nests weighing up to 0.5 kg, which display long-term parental care through truncated progressive provisioning, removing debris, repairing damage, and attacking potential invaders.
Biological Notes On Three Species of Giant Australian Mason Wasps, Abispa (Hymenoptera: Vespidae: Eumeninae)
Abstract Seven nests of Abispa australiana (Mitchell) from Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory, two nests of A. splendida splendida (Guérin-Méneville) from Magnetic Island National Park,
Phylogenetic Relationships among Yellowjackets and the Evolution of Social Parasitism (Hymenoptera: Vespidae, Vespinae)
TLDR
Investigating the phylogenetic relationships among the parasites and their hosts using cladistic analysis failed to determine if Emery's Rule applies to yellowjackets, as is thought to be the case for the ants on which the theory was based.
Morphologische Anpassungen des Sozialparasiten Sulcopolistes atrimandibularis an sein Verhalten auf Wirtsnestern von Polistes biglumis (Hymenoptera: Vespidae)
TLDR
The thickened and enlarged mandibles can not exclusively be interpreted as an adaptation to fights with the host - as reported previously, but it is more likely that this character represents the result of intraspecific competition.
Nesting Biologies and Immature Stages of the Tapinotaspidine Bee Genera Monoeca and Lanthanomelissa and of Their Osirine Cleptoparasites Protosiris and Parepeolus (Hymenoptera: Apidae: Apinae)
Abstract The nesting biologies of Monoeca haemorrhoidalis (Smith) and Lanthanomelissa betinae Urban (Tapinotaspidini) are described from southeastern Brazil. Both are ground nesting; the nests of the

TLDR
Adaptive aspects of the evolutionary origin and maintenance of cynipid inquilinism are discussed, as well as general patterns in the evolution of agastoparasitism.
The evolution of parasites from their hosts: intra– and interspecific parasitism and Emery's rule
TLDR
A model for single- and two-species evolutionary stable strategies (ESSs) is developed to examine the basis for Emery's rule and to determine whether mechanism (iii) is consistent with ESS reasoning.
Chemical ecology and social parasitism in ants.
TLDR
It is hypothesize that host and parasite are likely to be related chemically, thereby facilitating the necessary mimicry to permit bypassing the colony odor barrier, and discusses evolutionary trends that may have led to social parasitism, focusing on whether slave-making ants and their host species are expected to engage in a coevolutionary arms race.
Evolutionarily stable nesting strategy in a digger wasp.
TLDR
Two models based on the theory of mixed evolutionarily stable strategies of the digger wasp Sphex ichneumoneus were developed and tested on comprehensive field data from two North American populations of these wasps, and one of the only examples yet known of a mixed Evolutionarily stable strategy in nature is tried.
