No qualitative cladistic analysis has been performed previously for the subfamily classification of Pompilidae (Hymenoptera). In 1994 Shimizu proposed six subfamilies, but their validity and relationships remain inconclusive. The objective of this study was to perform a quantitative analysis of phylogenetic relationships of the Pompilidae, with emphasis on testing the validity of proposed subfamilies. Two cladistic analyses were performed based on morphological evidence. First, a maximum… Expand
Molecular phylogeny and systematics of spider wasps (Hymenoptera: Pompilidae): redefining subfamily boundaries and the origin of the family
TLDR
This is the first phylogenetic reconstruction of Pompilidae from molecular characters, with broad geographic and taxonomic sampling and new relationships are recovered. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Pompilinae (Hymenoptera: Pompilidae): Evidence for rapid diversification and host shifts in spider wasps.
TLDR
The first molecular phylogenetic analysis of Pompilinae is presented, toward the aim of evaluating the monophyly of tribes and genera, and Aporini was the only previously proposed monophyletic tribe. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics of Vespoidea indicate paraphyly of the superfamily and novel relationships of its component families and subfamilies
TLDR
This work collects molecular data from four nuclear genes and uses this topology as the best estimate of phylogeny at the family and subfamily levels of Vespoidea, and proposes a new classification of Aculeata that recognizes eight superfamilies. Expand
A global phylogenetic analysis of trap‐jaw ants, Anochetus Mayr and Odontomachus Latreille (Hymenoptera: Formicidae: Ponerinae)
TLDR
Biogeographic analyses suggest that the most recent common ancestor of Odontomachus and Anochetus occupied either the Neotropical or Afrotropical region during the late Cretaceous and that the two genera radiated during the early Paleocene. Expand
First record of Epipompilus excelsus (Bradley, 1944) (Hymenoptera, Pompilidae) as a koinobiont ectoparasitoid of Ariadna mollis (Holmberg, 1876) (Araneae, Segestriidae)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the Neotropical species of Epipompilus exhibit biological characteristics similar to the Australian species, acting as a koinobiont ectoparasitoid, but displays differences in larval morphology. Expand
Phylogeny and the evolution of nesting behaviour in the tribe Ageniellini (Insecta: Hymenoptera: Pompilidae)
TLDR
The evolution of nesting behaviour was inferred, as burrowing in the soil without using water was ancestral in Ageniellini, and constructing nests by plastering mud obtained by softening soil with water was derived only once at the ancestor of the Auplopodina. Expand
Systematic studies on the Pompilidae occurring in Japan: Genus Agenioideus Ashmead (Hymenoptera), supplement
TLDR
Two species of the pompilid genus Agenioideus occurring in Japan are described and a new combination is proposed: A. cinctellus and A. maculipes, which is found in Southeast Asia to South Asia. Expand
Next-Generation Sequencing of Two Mitochondrial Genomes from Family Pompilidae (Hymenoptera: Vespoidea) Reveal Novel Patterns of Gene Arrangement
TLDR
The genomes presented in this study have enriched the knowledge base of molecular markers, which is valuable in respect to studies about the gene rearrangement mechanism, genomic evolutionary processes and phylogeny of Hymenoptera. Expand
Brood Parasitism in Two Species of Spider Wasps (Hymenoptera: Pompilidae, Dipogon), with Notes on a Novel Reproductive Strategy
TLDR
A trap-nesting study provided the first documentation of brood parasitism in Dipogon nagasei and in D. iwatai, both of which develop into adult wasps without larval cannibalism and are with the subgenus Nipponodipogon, whereas all five Dipog on hosts are in the sub genus Deuteragenia. Expand
A checklist to the wasps of Peru (Hymenoptera, Aculeata)
TLDR
Th e fi rst checklist to the 225 genera and 1169 reported species-group taxa of aculeate wasps of Peru is presented and the following new combinations are proposed: Ancistroceroides cirrifer comb. Expand

The suprageneric groups ofthe Pimplinae (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae): a cladistic re-evaluationand evolutionary biological study
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of the suprageneric group of the ichneumonid subfamily Pimplinae (Hymenoptera) are re-assessed using 166 morphological and biological characters for 162 species, representing all of the available described genera and subgenera, and results suggest that using abstracted taxa may force a ‘falsemonophyly’ on the preselected groups.

Phylogeny and evolution of wasps, ants and bees (Hymenoptera, Chrysidoidea, Vespoidea and Apoidea)

Phylogenetic utility of the major opsin in bees (Hymenoptera: Apoidea): a reassessment.
TLDR
An expanded LW Rh data set generated by sequencing the same gene fragment from 52 additional bee species from 24 tribes and all six extant bee families unambiguously support the traditional phylogeny of the corbiculate bee tribes, implying a single origin of advanced eusocial behavior among bees rather than dual origins. Expand
The major opsin in bees (Insecta: Hymenoptera): A promising nuclear gene for higher level phylogenetics.
TLDR
The phylogenetic utility of the nuclear gene encoding the long-wavelength opsin (LW Rh) for tribes of bees is reported, suggesting that LW Rh could provide important new data from the nuclear genome for phylogeny reconstruction. Expand
Phylogeny of eusocial Lasioglossum reveals multiple losses of eusociality within a primitively eusocial clade of bees (Hymenoptera: Halictidae).
TLDR
The results support the view that eusociality is hard to evolve but easily lost, and are potentially important for understanding the early evolution of the advanced eussocial insects, such as ants, termites, and corbiculate bees. Expand
Phylogeny of Aculeata: Chrysidoidea and Vespoidea (Hymenoptera)
TLDR
The development of ideas on the phylogeny of the aculeate Hymenoptera, especially Vespoidea and Chrysidoidea, since Brothers and Carpenter's 1986 studies is reviewed and the final preferred cladogram indicates the following relationships. Expand
Studies on Neotropical Pompilidae (Hymenoptera). IX. the Genera of Auplopodini
TLDR
Seven genera which Hermann Haupt described from the neotropics, all of which can be promptly relegated to synonymy are considered and a revised key to neotropical Auplopodini is presented. Expand
Multiple molecular data sets suggest independent origins of highly eusocial behavior in bees (Hymenoptera:Apinae).
TLDR
This work presents new data and taxa for four molecular data sets and reassess the morphological characters available to date, and accepts two equally well supported hypotheses of corbiculate bee relationships, which frame the argument that highly eusocial behavior within the corBiculate bees evolved twice independently.

TLDR
Behaviour, nesting cycles, life histories, and final-instar larvae are described for all species, and distributions of all species are indicated. Expand
STUDIES ON NEOTROPICAL POMPILIDAE (HYMENOPTERA)
TLDR
In the previous paper of this series (Evans, I968), I described several cases of dual sex-limited mimicry in the genus Chirodamus and mentioned that certain species of Austrochares exhibit this phenomenon, and it seems desirable to clarify this matter further. Expand
