Report on the host associations of the genus Macrosiagon (Coleoptera: Ripiphoridae) in Sulawesi (Indonesia)

  title={Report on the host associations of the genus Macrosiagon (Coleoptera: Ripiphoridae) in Sulawesi (Indonesia)},
  author={Jan Batelka and Patricia MacElveen Hoehn},
The wasp hosts of three species of the genus Macrosiagon Hentz, 1830 (Coleoptera: Ripiphoridae: Ripiphorinae: Macrosiagonini) are recorded from Central Sulawesi (Indonesia). Macrosiagon nasuta (Thunberg, 1784) was reared from the nests of Rhynchium haemorrhoidale (Fabricius, 1775) and Epsilon manifestatum crassipunctatum (Gusenleitner, 1991) (both Vespidae: Eumeninae), Macrosiagon cf. punctulaticeps (Blackburn, 1899) was reared from the nests of Pison sp. (Crabronidae: Trypoxylonini) and…

Morphology and biological notes of Macrosiagon octomaculata (Gerstaecker) triungulinid and a summary of the knowledge on immature stages of the genus (Ripiphoridae)
Information on Macrosiagon octomaculata, including eggs and triungulinids, found on Paepalanthus polyanthus (Bong.) Sano (Eriocaulaceae) blooming in restinga habitat on Santa Catarina Island, South Brazil, is presented.
The earliest beetle with mouthparts specialized for feeding on nectar is a parasitoid of mid-Cretaceous Hymenoptera
Evidence of the earliest occurrence of specialized nectar feeding mouthparts in Coleoptera is presented, and a new wedge-shaped beetle Melanosiagon serraticornis is described, closely related to extant Macrosiagonini.
A review of the genus Macrosiagon in Laos (Coleoptera: Ripiphoridae)
The genus Macrosiagon Hentz, 1830 (Coleoptera: Ripiphoridae) in Laos is reviewed. Four species of the genus are figured and keyed and their distribution discussed. First records of Macrosiagon
Ripiphorus caboverdianus sp. nov.—the first ripiphorid record from the Macaronesian volcanic islands (Coleoptera: Ripiphoridae: Ripiphorinae)
The new species is characterized by milky white elytra, hyaline hind wings and translucent membranous suture between dorsal and ventral surface of the first abdominal segments in both sexes, and its significance for the understanding of oceanic dispersal abilities of the subfamily Ripiphorinae is discussed.
Position and Relationships of Ripiphoridae (Coleoptera: Tenebrionoidea) Inferred from Ribosomal and Mitochondrial Molecular Markers
Molecular phylogeny of Ptilophorus Dejean supports a hypothesis about their Gondwanan origin and subsequent dispersal to the Northern hemisphere and majority consensus suggests a terminal position of Metoecus within Macrosiagon and the inferred subclades agree with the morphology-based species-groups.
The Hidden Biodiversity Data Retained in Pre-Linnaean Works: A Case Study with Two Important XVII Century Italian Entomologists
Detailed re-examinations of ancient studies may contribute to the knowledge on biodiversity by providing historical distribution data as well as unveiling trophic interactions that may have been modified due to biodiversity loss in the last century.
Five new associations of parasitoids in potter wasps (Vespidae, Eumeninae)
Five new associations of parasitoids in potter wasps (Vespidae, Eumeninae) are found, including Toxophora leucon and Pleurochrysis sp.
On the Presence of Macrosiagon ferruginea (Fabricius, 1775) in Northern Tunisia (Coleoptera, Ripiphoridae, Ripiphorinae, Macrosiagonini)
Macrosiagon ferruginea (Fabricius, 1775) is reported for the first time in Tunisia, expanding its distribution range in North Africa.
A preliminary study of cave-dwelling insects were conducted in Gunung Senyum Cave, Pahang to identify diurnal insect present in the cave environment to fill in the knowledge gap regarding cave insects which is very sparse in Malaysia.


Bionomics, behaviour and immature stages of Pelecotoma fennica (Paykull) (Coleoptera: Rhipiphoridae)
Ptilinus fuscus (Anobiidae) was confirmed as the host species of Pelecotoma fennica, and first-instar larvae are elongate, unsclerotized, very different from the triungulinid larvae known in other rhipiphorids.
Notes on the Nests and Prey of Six Species of Pison in Australia (Hymenoptera: Sphecidae)
Six species of the genus Pison, which is abundantly represented in Australia, are reported on, four of which have not previously been studied, and a species near tibiale Smith are confirmed and enlarge upon previously published reports.

Survivorship, Fecundity, and Recruitment in a Mud Dauber Wasp, Sceliphron assimile (Hymenoptera: Sphecidae)
A dense aggregation of 866 nests of a solitary mud daubing wasp, Sceliphron assimile Dahlbom, was censused at Hacienda La Pacifica near Caflas, Guanacaste, Costa Rica to estimate female-only fecundity values and technique for calculating interval-specific recruitment values is introduced.
Effects of Land‐Use Intensity in Tropical Agroforestry Systems on Coffee Flower‐Visiting and Trap‐Nesting Bees and Wasps
The results support the idea that many nonpest and beneficial insect species may even profit from agricultural land use, and contrast with the common expectation that intensively used agroforestry systems are characterized only by loss of species.
