A phylogeny of the Agaonidae (Chalcidoidea) in their restricted sense, pollinators of Ficus species (Moraceae), is estimated using 4182 nucleotides from six genes, obtained from 101 species representing 19 of the 20 recognized genera, and four outgroups. Data analysed by parsimony and Bayesian inference methods demonstrate that Agaonidae are monophyletic and that the previous classification is not supported. Agaonidae are partitioned into four groups: (i) Tetrapus, (ii) Ceratosolen + Kradibia… 

Torymidae (Hymenoptera, Chalcidoidea) revised: molecular phylogeny, circumscription and reclassification of the family with discussion of its biogeography and evolution of life‐history traits

A phylogeny of the Torymidae (Chalcidoidea) is estimated using 4734 nucleotides from five genes. Twelve outgroups and 235 ingroup taxa are used, representing about 70% of the recognized genera. Our

Taxonomic revision and molecular phylogeny of the fig wasp genus Anidarnes Bouček, 1993 (Hymenoptera: Sycophaginae)

TLDR
A detailed morphological analysis as well as the first molecular phylogeny of the genus inferred from two nuclear and two mitochondrial genes (Cytb, COI, EF‐1α and 28S rRNA, 3937 bp) are presented.

Taxonomic revision and molecular phylogenetics of the Idarnes incertus species-group (Hymenoptera, Agaonidae, Sycophaginae)

TLDR
The Idarnes incertus species-group was reviewed and detailed morphological descriptions and illustrations for the species belonging to this group were provided to provide keys for the identification of the species as well as for recognising the different species-groups of Idarne and a closely related genus.

Preliminary phylogeny of the genus Copidosoma (Hymenoptera, Encyrtidae), polyembryonic parasitoids of Lepidoptera

TLDR
The current work offers a foundation for a comprehensive phylogeny of Copidosoma and the possibility to reconstruct cophylogeny between CopidOSoma and their lepidopteran hosts.

A phylogenetic analysis of the megadiverse Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera)

TLDR
The first phylogenetic analysis of the superfamily Chalcidoidea based on both morphological and molecular data is presented and several life‐history traits are mapped onto the new phylogeny.

Taxonomic revision and molecular phylogeny of the fig wasp genus Anidarnes Bouˇ cek, 1993 (Hymenoptera: Sycophaginae)

TLDR
A detailed morphological analysis as well as the first molecular phylogeny of the genus inferred from two nuclear and two mitochondrial genes (Cytb, COI, EF-1α and 28S rRNA, 3937 bp) of Anidarnes Bouy cek (Sycophaginae) are presented.

A living fossil Tetrapus fig wasp (Hymenoptera: Agaoninae) developing in extant Neotropical fig species (Moraceae: Ficus, section Pharmacosycea).

TLDR
This work reports a group of New World extant Tetrapus morphotypes, whose females have two mandibular appendages and the males are hexapodous, their fig host association and phylogenetic position to the family Agaonidae, and suggests that Hexapus stands up as a living fossil and the sister clade of Tetrapu s.s.

A Molecular Phylogeny of the Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera)

TLDR
This first comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of the superfamily Chalcidoidea based on a molecular analysis of 18S and 28S ribosomal gene regions for 19 families, 72 subfamilies, 343 genera and 649 species finds no impact of alignment method, and few but substantial differences between likelihood and parsimony approaches.

Integrative taxonomy to assess the species richness of chalcidoid parasitoids (Hymenoptera) associated to Bruchinae (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) from Mexico

TLDR
This study highlights the considerable species richness of chalcidoid taxa that are associated to bruchine beetles, and the need to provide reliable host records for members of this group of parasitoids.

Phylogeny and behaviour of the Gollumiellinae, a new subfamily of the ant‐parasitic Eucharitidae (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea)

TLDR
The molecular phylogeny contradicts previous morphological hypotheses, in which Gollumiella and Anorasema are within Eucharitini, and suggests that very distinct traits such as the fusion of the pronotum and prepectus in adults and the Fusion of the first two tergites of the planidia are convergent apomorphies.

Phylogenetics and classification of Chalcidoidea and Mymarommatoidea — a review of current concepts (Hymenoptera, Apocrita)

TLDR
Mymaridae are indicated as the likely sister group of all other Chalcidoidea by: two features of the ovipositor, the unique structure of a muscle between the mesofurca and axillary lever, and sequence data from the 28s rDNA gene.

TLDR
The recovery of the ectoparasitic-containing proctotrupomorphs (Chalcidoidea and, in some analyses, Ceraphronoidea) as apical lineages argues that these biologies are reversals.

Revision of the Australian species of Pleistodontes (Hymenoptera: Agaonidae) fig-pollinating wasps and their host-plant associations

TLDR
The morphological study suggests strongly that the genus Pleistodontes includes some species that pollinate fig flowers actively and others that effect only passive pollination; however, three notable exceptions are discussed.

Phylogeny of the Nasonia species complex (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae) inferred from an internal transcribed spacer (ITS2) and 28S rDNA sequences

TLDR
Tree topology of the Nasonia complex was congruent with the phylogeny of a cluster of Wolbachia bacteria which infect these insects and was used to resolve the phylogenetic affiliation of an eulophid, Melittobia digitata, to the pteromalids.

Phylogenetic relationships among microgastrine braconid wasp genera based on data from the 16S, COI and 28S genes and morphology

TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships among the genera of the large braconid wasp subfamily Microgastrinae were explored using DNA sequence data from the mitochondrial large ribosomal subunit (16S) and mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase (COI) genes, along with morphological characters, both new and from previous studies.
