Masnerium wellsae gen. n., sp. n. (Hymenoptera, Platygastridae, Sceliotrachelinae) a parasitoid of Aleuroduplidens wellsae Martin (Hemiptera, Aleyrodidae) in Australia
Masnerium wellsae Polaszek, gen. nov., sp. nov. is described from Merbein, Victoria, Australia. It is a primary endoparasitoid of the whitefl y Aleuroduplidens wellsae Martin, described from the sameExpand
Proterosceliopsidae: A new family of Platygastroidea from Cretaceous amber
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
Unique extrication structure in a new megaspilid, Dendrocerus scutellaris Trietsch & Mikó (Hymenoptera: Megaspilidae)
This species is the only known ceraphronoid wasp with a straight mandibular surface and raised dorsal projections on the scutellum, called the mesoscutellar comb, which is hypothesised to aid the emergence of the adult from the host. Expand

Chinese species of egg-parasitoids of the genera Oxyscelio Kieffer, Heptascelio Kieffer and Platyscelio Kieffer (Hymenoptera: Platygastridae s.l., Scelioninae)
Twenty-eight species of Oxyscelio, primarily found in the tropics, are recorded from collections in mainland China, and most of these species are shared with Taiwan and southeast Asia. Expand
Systematics of Trichoteleia Kieffer and Paridris Kieffer (Hymenoptera, Platygastroidea, Platygastridae)
The first phylogenetic analysis of platygastroid wasps that combines and compares morphological and molecular data is presented, finding the results of the phylogenetic analyses of the two data sources to be largely congruent for the species treated here. Expand
Biodiversity & Endangered Species
The morphological diversity of Podostemaceae is characterized by recurrent large-gap differences, and the earliest change occurred at the origin from the common ancestor to Hypericaceae. Expand
