Checklist of the sawflies (Hymenoptera) of Canada, Alaska and Greenland
A distributional checklist of the sawflies (Hymenoptera) of Canada, Alaska (USA) and Greenland (Denmark) is presented and eighty-four new combinations are proposed for species of Nematinae (Tenthredinidae).
Taxonomic addition to the early diverged parasitic wasps (Hymenoptera: Orussoidea) from the mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber
A new genus and species of orussoid wasps, Cretorussus vilhelmseni gen. et sp. nov., is described based on new material from the mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber. Its wing venation and body characters
Sawflies (Hymenoptera, Symphyta) newly recorded from Washington State
This map shows the distribution of fruit flies in Washington state, Canada and the United States over the course of a 12-year period.
New records of Orussus minutus Middlekauff, 1983 (Hymenoptera: Orussidae) represent a significant western range expansion
This work reports specimens Orussus minutus Middlekauff, 1983, from Arkansas, Iowa, Minnesota, and Manitoba, which represent new state and province records and significantly expand the known range of the species west from previous records.
Per arborem ad astra: morphological adaptations to exploiting the woody habitat in the early evolution of Hymenoptera.
We survey morphological features of larval and adult wasps that undergo their entire larval development inside wood and interpret them in view of the lifestyle. The evolution of some of the
Antennal Hammers: Echos of Sensillae Past
It is shown that vibrational sounding is associated with antennal modification and the usage of wood-boring buprestid and cerambycid beetles, and suggested, based on an apparent transition series, that the hammers are derived from mechano-sensilla within the Cryptinae.
The origins of species richness in the Hymenoptera: insights from a family-level supertree
A family-level phylogeny of the Hymenoptera is assembled using supertree methods to suggest that numerous phylogenetically distinctive radiations contribute to the richness of large clades and suggest that evolutionary events restricting the subsequent richness ofLarge clades are common.
Distal leg morphology, subgenual organs and host detection in Stephanidae (Insecta, Hymenoptera)
The authors' observations provide circumstantial evidence that female Stephanidae detect substrate‐borne vibrations when searching for hosts, and characters of the distal leg elements and the SGO suggest a basal position of Schlettererius and Stephanus within Stephanidae.
Hammering homoplasy: multiple gains and losses of vibrational sounding in cryptine wasps (Insecta: Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae).
It is shown that, within the Cryptinae, the tips of the antenna are modified into a hammer-like structure that is suitable for knocking a substrate; this form of echo-location is typical to the tribe Cryptini, although it is also found in a few phygadeuontines and in the hemigastrine genus Echthrus.
Phylogeny and Classification of Hymenoptera
A superfamily-level classification of the Hymenoptera is offered, which differs from most recent classifications in the recognition of the Diaprioidea, to include Diapriidae, Monomachidae, and Maamingidae.
