Museomics and phylogenomics with protein-encoding ultraconserved elements illuminate the evolution of life history and phallic morphology of flesh flies (Diptera: Sarcophagidae)
A phylogenomic dataset of protein-encoding ultraconserved elements from representatives of all three subfamilies of Sarcophagidae as ingroup and a large Calyptratae outgroup is generated, and a robust phylogenetic framework and timescale are generated to understand flesh fly systematics and the evolution of their life histories.

La prédation chezOdontomachus troglodytes Santschi (Formicidae-Ponerinae)
Four types of preys were presented to workers of Odontomachus troglodytes and the most complete sequence includes the following phases: detection, localization, approach, antennal palpation, attack, lifting, stinging and transport. Expand
Hunting behavior by the sand wasp Rubrica nasuta (Christ 1791) (Hymenoptera Sphecidae)
Considering the great behavioral differences of R. nasuta's prey, the use of various searching and attack tactics may strongly affect prey selection. Expand
The natural history of the neotropical sand wasp Rubrica nasuta (Christ 1791)(Hymenoptera Sphecidae) in Brazil
The natural history of the sand wasp Rubrica nasuta (Christ 1791) was studied at the campus of the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, Brazil in the first comprehensive study of this neotropical species. Expand
14 – Insect Venoms and Toxins
The Sphecidae (Hymenoptera) of New Zealand
Most species are endemic, but there are two adventive species of Australian origin, and the sphecid fauna is isolated and restricted and 16 species are discussed. Expand
The ecology and evolution of male reproductive behaviour in the bees and wasps
Of special interest in multiple-mating by females, which may be an evolutionary response to the costs of attempting to resist copulation in certain situations, are the ecological and evolutionary bases of these differences that are explored in this paper. Expand
