Sister‐group relationships of the Platygastroidea and Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera) — an alternate hypothesis to Rasnitsyn (1988)
Retention of an independent prepectus and a mesotergal‐mesotrochanteral depressor muscle indicates that Chalcidoidea + Mymarommatoidea are a relatively early clade of Apocrita but does not indicate exact relationships. Expand
Diversity, Classification and Higher Relationships of Mymarommatoidea (Hymenoptera)
Desc description of the structural diversity of extant and extinct mymarommatids is based on the 20 described species plus 15 undescribed extant morphospecies and several fossils from Tertiary Baltic amber and Burmese, Canadian and New Jersey Cretaceous amber. Expand
A new family of primitive serphitoid wasps in Lebanese amber (Hymenoptera: Serphitoidea)
A new family of serphitoid wasps (Bipetiolarida: Serphitoidea) is described and figured as Archaeoserphitidae Engel,new family, and the subfamily Microserphitinae Engel, new subfamily, is established. Expand
The History of Insect Parasitism and the Mid-Mesozoic Parasitoid Revolution
After the MMPR, in phases 3 and 4 (Late Cretaceous to Recent), parasitoids increased in taxonomic diversity, becoming integrated into food webs that continue to the present day. Expand
Dipterommatidae, a new family of parasitic wasps (Hymenoptera: Mymarommatoidea) in mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber: The first case of morphological diptery in flying Hymenoptera
Abstract Microhymenopterans are important components of modern ecosystems, where they act as egg parasites and hyperparasites of arthropods. Mymarommatoidea are among the smallest hymenopterans andExpand
Information from the mitochondrial genomes of two egg parasitoids, Gonatocerus sp. and Telenomus sp., reveals a controversial phylogenetic relationship between Mymaridae and Scelionidae.
The taxonomic status and phylogenetic affinities of Mymaridae and Scelionidae are controversial, based on similarities between these families in the characteristics of adults, larvae, and eggs. InExpand
New serphitoid wasp Supraserphites draculi gen. et sp. nov. in Burmese amber (Hymenoptera, Serphitidae: Supraserphitinae)
A new subfamily is described as new in Serphitidae in having the number of flagellomeres reduced (less than 12), and autapomorphic in respect to other Serph itidae (Serphitinae and Microserphitinee) in having maxillary and labial palps very long and subequal in length. Expand
Laurasian ancestors and “Gondwanan” descendants of Rotoitidae (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea): What a review of Late Cretaceous Baeomorpha revealed
The newly described fossils indicate the southern hemisphere distribution of extant Rotoitidae is relictual with the pattern observed being formed at least in part by extinction events, though distributions of the only two extant rotoitid genera, Rotoita Boucek and Noyes, 1987 (New Zealand) and Chiloe Gibson and Huber, 2000 (small area in the southern Chile) may have been more extensive in the past. Expand
The Mesozoic family Mesoserphidae and its phylogeny (Hymenoptera: Apocrita: Proctotrupoidea)
Phylogenetic analysis using 22 morphological characters, 18 mesoserphid ingroups and two outgroups indicate that the subfamilies Mesoserphinee and Karataoserphinae should be abandoned. Expand
The wasp family Spathiopterygidae in mid-Cretaceous amber from Myanmar (Hymenoptera: Diaprioidea)
The extinct parasitoid wasp family Spathiopterygidae is recorded for the first time from the mid-Cretaceous amber deposits of northern Myanmar, often referred to as Burmese amber, revealing a novel combination of traits seemingly intermediary between the Albian and Turonian taxa. Expand
