Abstract Five genera in the tribe Sparasionini are described and keyed. Electroteleia Brues (Baltic amber), Sceliomorpha Ashmead (Neotropics) and Sparasion Latreille (Nearctic, Palearctic, Oriental, and Afrotropical regions) are redescribed. Listron Musetti and Johnson, new genus is described from Chile with two species, L. politum Musetti and Johnson, new species (type species of the genus), and L. bilaminatum Masner, new species. Mexon Masner and Johnson, new genus, is described from Mexico… Expand
Proterosceliopsidae: A new family of Platygastroidea from Cretaceous amber
TLDR
The analysis of Proterosceliopsis in the context of extant and fossil platygastroids places this group as a lineage well outside of the current families. Expand
The genus Neuroscelio Dodd (Hymenoptera: Platygastridae s.l.) reviewed: new species, distributional update, and discussion of relationships
The genus Neuroscelio Dodd is revised and two new species are described: N. lagunai n. sp. (Australia) and N. orientalis n. sp. (Vietnam). An update to the identification key for Neuroscelio speciesExpand
Maxillolabial complex in scelionids (Hymenoptera: Platygastroidea): morphology and phylogenetic implications
TLDR
This study provides relevant information for resolving the phylogeny of the Platygastroidea, but additional character sources have to be explored to obtain a robust phylogenetic hypothesis. Expand
An apterous scelionid wasp in mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber (Hymenoptera: Scelionidae)
TLDR
This is the first flightless species of Platygastroidea known from the Mesozoic, and its affinities with other Mesozoics and extant lineages are discussed. Expand
Only a half of Species of Hymenoptera in Rovno Amber Fauna is Common with Baltic Amber
TLDR
Evidence is provided that the source area of the Rovno amber, contrary to the Baltic amber, had been situated southwards from Subparathetys, supporting the previously proposed suggestion on the four main European sources of succinite. Expand
Orwellium, a new Valdivian genus of Platygastridae (Hymenoptera)
Orwellium enigmaticum is described as a new genus and species. Th is species is endemic to the Valdivian forests of Chile. Th e genus is hypothesized to be the sister-group of the subfamilyExpand
An online photographic catalog of primary types of Platygastroidea (Hymenoptera) in the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution
A photographic catalog of primary types of Platygastroidea housed in the National Insect Collection, National Museum of Natural History, is here made available online at the image database at TheExpand
The maxillo-labial complex of Sparasion (Hymenoptera, Platygastroidea)
TLDR
An ontology-based model of the anatomical concepts related to the maxillo-labial complex (MLC) of Hymenoptera is provided and the possible functions and putative evolutionary relevance of some anatomical structures of the MLC in Sparasion are discussed. Expand
Checklist of British and Irish Hymenoptera - Platygastroidea
TLDR
A revised checklist of the British and Irish Platygastroidea (Platygastridae) substantially updates the previous comprehensive checklist, dating from 1978, and represents a 47% increase on the number of British and Ireland species reported in 1978. Expand
An appreciation of Lubomír Masner on the occasion of his 75th birthday

Key to genera of Scelionidae of the Holarctic region, with descriptions of new genera and species (Hymenoptera: Proctotrupoidea)
TLDR
The Nearctic and Palearctic faunas of Scelionidae are compared, analyzed, and tabulated on generic level. Expand
Nearctic species of Scelionidae (Hymenoptera: Proctotrupoidea) that parasitize the eggs of grasshoppers
TLDR
A new generic name, Sceliocerdo, is proposed for an Indian species, which is discussed because of its similarity to Synoditella, new genus of Proctotrupoidea. Expand
The polyphyletic nature of Apanteles Foerster (Hymenoptera: Braconidae): a phylogeny and reclassification of Microgastrinae
TLDR
The subfamily Microgastrinae is redefined; Cardiochilinae and Miracinae are placed as separate subfamilies and Twenty new species are described and about 350 new combinations are given. Expand
World Review and Keys to Genera of the Subfamily Inostemmatinae with Reassignment of the Taxa to the Platygastrinae and Sceliotrachelinae (Hymenoptera: Platygastridae)
The subfamily Inostemmatinae is considered a symplesiomorphic assemblage and the genera currently classified here are reassigned either to the subfamily Platygastrinae or the Sceliotrachelinae.Expand
The ovipositor system of Scelionid and Platygastrid wasps (Hymenoptera: Platygastroidea): Comparative morphology and phylogenetic implications
TLDR
The morphology of the sclerotised components of the ovipositor system is comprehensively surveyed for scelionid and platygastrid wasps, with information being assessed for 120 genera and 220 species and it is proposed that this group be informally referred to as the Scelionini sensu lato. Expand
REVISIONARY NOTES AND KEYS TO WORLD GENERA OF SCELIONIDAE (HYMENOPTERA: PROCTOTRUPOIDEA)
TLDR
The tribal classification is reviewed; four new tribes are proposed in the subfamily Scelioninae, viz. Expand
Phylogeny of the platygastroid wasps (Hymenoptera) based on sequences from the 18S rRNA, 28S rRNA and cytochrome oxidase I genes: implications for the evolution of the ovipositor system and host relationships
TLDR
Results strongly support the monophyly of the superfamily and one of the two families, Platygastridae, but the Scelionidae are most likely polyphyletic, while illustrating the problems associated with the current classification is the nonmonophyle of a number of genera, namely Opisthacantha Caloteleia, Telenomus, Trimorus, Teleas and Idris.

Skeletomusculature of Scelionidae (Hymenoptera: Platygastroidea): head and mesosoma
TLDR
The skeletomusculature of the head and mesosoma of the parasitoid wasp family Scelionidae is reviewed, and the variability of the muscle and corresponding skeletal structures within the family is described. Expand
Anatomy and mechanics of the telescopic ovipositor system of Scelio latreille (Hymenoptera: Scelionidae) and related genera
TLDR
The telescopic ovipositor system possessed by the genus Scelio Latreille and related genera is described in detail for the first time, and found to be anatomically and mechanically unique amongst the parasitic Hymenoptera. Expand
Morphology of antennal gustatory sensilla and glands in some parasitoid Hymenoptera with hypothesis on their role in sex and host recognition
TLDR
Two functional areas, "touch and taste area" and "release and spread area", are proposed in an attempt to associate them with behavior and to clear some nomenclatural problems in different taxa. Expand
