A contribution to the knowledge of parasitoids of insects associated with Rosaceae species from Edirne Province, European Turkey

Twelve dipteran and hymenopteran species were determined as new records for the fauna of Edirne province and European Turkey and some biological and ecological observations were also recorded.

Foraging Payoffs Change With Group Size in Kin and Non-kin Groups of an Argyrodinae Kleptoparasitic Spider, Argyrodes miniaceus

The juxtaposition of kin and non-kin group showed that A. miniaceus enjoyed the highest foraging payoffs when being solitary or in small groups (group size two), which contrast sharply with the feeding benefits of kinship recorded in kin-based groups of sub-social species present in related subfamilies in the Theridiidae.

Life Cycle and Behavior of the Kleptoparasitic Spider, Argyrodes Ululans (Araneae, Theridiidae)

This study investigated the life cycle and behavior of Argyrodes ululans which is a specialist kleptoparasite in the communal webs of its social spider host, Anelosimus exiraius. Observations of

FACTORS INFLUENCING SPECIFICITY AND CHOICE OF HOST IN ARGYR ODES ANTIPODIAN A (THERIDIIDAE, ARANEAE )

In the laboratory, Argyrodes antipodiana is significantly better at obtaining food on the webs of Aranea pustulosa, than on the Webs o f Achaearanea sp .

Host‐dependent differences in prey acquisition between populations of a kleptoparasitic spider Argyrodes kumadai (Araneae: Theridiidae)

Examination of whether differences in host characters affect prey acquisition of Argyrodes kumadai found no evidence of a relationship between host characters and prey acquisition.

OBSERVATIONS ON THE BEHAVIOR OF THE KLEPTOPARASITIC SPIDER, MYSMENOPSIS FURTIVA

Mysmenopsis furtiva, a tiny spider which lives in the funnelwebs of the Ja? maican diplurid spider, Ischnothele xera, behaves both as a kleptoparasite and as a com? mensal; it pilfers portions of its

The effect of kleptoparasitism on prey consumption and web relocation in a Peruvian population of the spider Nephila clavipes

There was a complete correlation between the number of Argyrodes individuals in a spider's web and the percentage of those spiders that relocated their web, which indicated that N. clavipes that moved their webs shortly after observation had consumed significantly fewer prey items than those that maintained their web site.

PREDATION BY ARGYRODES TRIGONUM ON LINYPHIA TRIANGULARIS, AN INVASIVE SHEET-WEB WEAVER IN COASTAL MAINE

Multiple observations of Argyrodes spiders inhabiting L. triangularis webs suggest that this invasive sheet-web weaver is not immune to web invasions, kleptoparasitism or predation by A. trigonum.

Two New Species of Kleptoparasitic Mysmenopsis (Araneae, Mysmenidae) from Jamaica

Two new species of kleptoparasitic Mysmenopsisspiders from Jamaica are described and the probable close relationship of this Mysmanopsisspecies pair to M .

ARGYRODES: PHYLOGENY, SOCIALITY AND INTERSPECIFIC INTERACTIONS—A REPORT ON THE ARGYRODES SYMPOSIUM, BADPLAAS 2001

It is concluded that Argyrodes forms a monophyletic group within the Theridiidae, and that there are clear monophyletsic clades within the genus (already identified as species groups) that appear to share behavioral characteristics.

Ecology and behavior of the giant wood spider Nephila maculata (Fabricius) in New Guinea

Investigations of the seasonal, reproductive, and population ecology of Nephila maculata are reported in detail and the predatory behavior of N. maculaia is analyzed in terms of behavior units and behavior sequences and is compared with that of other Nephila species, related species, and that ofother araneids studied by the authors.

Spider-web kleptoparasites as a model for studying producer-consumer interactions

It is documented that the kleptoparasitic spiders Argyrodes etevatus consume and assimilate web material from the host spider Nephila elatripts, and quantitatively it is demonstrated that the amount of web material consumed is equivalent to theamount of insect material comsumed when host vigilance is low, as expected when foraging conditions are very good.
