Summary The species of the genus Laena Latreille 1829 (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) from China including Tibet are treated and separated in a key. Some synonymies are established and 47 new species are described, altogether 71 species are now known from that area. ‐ New species: Laena baishuica n. sp. (Yunnan), becvari n. sp. (Yunnan), benesi n. sp. (Sichuan), bowaica n. sp. (Sichuan), brendelli n. sp. (Yunnan), businskyorum n. sp. (Yunnan), cholanica n. sp. (Tibet), daxueica n. sp. (Sichuan…

A review of the genus Phania Meigen, 1824 (Diptera: Tachinidae: Phasiinae) in Iran with the description of a new species
The genus Phania (Diptera: Tachinidae: Phasiinae) was studied in Iran and two species, namely Phania funesta (Meigen) and P. curvicauda (Fallen), were newly recorded in Iran.
Leiochrinini (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae: Diaperinae) from north-eastern India and China, with descriptions of six new species1
Newly collected specimens of the tenebrionid tribe Leiochrinini Lewis, 1894 (Diaperinae Latreille, 1802) from continental China and north-eastern India are treated, including several new geographical records and six new species: Derispia arunachala n.
Neotropical Agromyzidae (Diptera) of the Mission Géodésique de l'Équateur: Becker (1920) revisited.
The Ecuadorian Agromyzidae described by Theodor Becker from the Mission du service géographique de l'armée pour la mesure d'un arc de méridien équatorial en Amérique du Sud are revised and several
Revision of the fish family Kyphosidae (Teleostei: Perciformes).
The distribution of Kyphosus species is reconsidered based on the taxonomic revision, indicating that four species occur in both the Atlantic and Indo-Pacific regions and four species (K. bigibbus, K. cinerascens,K. cornelii, k. hawaiiensis and K. vaigiensis) occur in either the Atlantic or Indo- Pacific regions.
Reassessment of Paleotachina Townsend and Electrotachina Townsend and their removal from the Tachinidae (Diptera)
Paleotachina and Electrotachina were originally described as fossils in amber but were later discovered to be inclusions in copal and both taxa were originally assigned to the Tachinidae and this placement has continued to the present day.
A checklist of macroparasites of Liza haematocheila (Temminck & Schlegel) (Teleostei: Mugilidae)
A comparison of the parasite faunas based on the records in the native and introduced/invasive range of L. haematocheila suggests that a large number of parasite species was 'lost' in the new distributional range whereas an even greater number was 'gained'.
Phylogeny in cryptic weevils: molecules, morphology and new genera of western Palaearctic Cryptorhynchinae (Coleoptera : Curculionidae)
The results of this study show the need for molecular tools within this morphologically cryptic group of weevils and provide a scaffold based on which genus assignment can be tested.
Chloropidae from the Arabian Peninsula
Abstract 119 named species, belonging to 48 genera are recorded from the Arabian Peninsula. Of these 21 species are described as new to science, being Scoliophthalmus cryptonevriformis, Elachiptera
A Descriptive Morphology of the Ant Genus Procryptocerus (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
Ants of the genus Procryptocerus possess important morphologic characters yet have not been explored for use in a taxonomic revision, and a in-group comparison of the external morphology is presented focusing on the workers.
Redescription of Chelifer eucarpus DALMAN ( Arachnida , Chelonethi , Withiidae ) and fi rst records of pseudoscorpions in copal from Madagascar and Colombia
Chelifer eucarpus DALMAN, 1826, which was previously considered a nomen dubium, is redescribed from the holotype tritonymph and transferred to the genus Withius KEW, 1911 (Withiidae). The provenance


First record of Laenini (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) from South Africa, with descriptions of two new genera and several new species
The tenebrionid tribe Laenini was first recorded from the Ethiopian Region (South Africa). The following new taxa are described, Laena ruthmuellerae spec. nov., Laena africana spec. nov., Afrolaena
A revisional study of the species of the genus Uloma from Japan, Korea and Taiwan (Tenebrionidae, Coleoptera)
The genus Uloma from japan, Korea and Taiwan is revised and twenty·two species in total, of which 2 species are divided into 2 subspecies each, are found in the region and all are dealt with here.
A Remarkably Large New Species of Discocoris from Colombia (Heteroptera: Thaumastocoridae)
The species described below is a relatively gigantic thaumastocorid, nearly twice the length and several times the bulk of any previously known species of the genus, newly described from Colombia.
My purposes here are to make more clear some published ambiguities on thaumastocorid morphology, to add a few details hitherto un noticed, and to comment briefly on the relationships of the family.
Paleodoris lattini gen. n., sp. n., a fossil palm bug (Hemiptera: Thaumastocoridae, Xylastodorinae) in Dominican amber, with habits discernible by comparative functional morphology
The fossil shows a similar morphology to X. luteolus, which inhabits the confined spaces between the closed leaves of the Royal Palm, and it is presumed that the fossil species lived in a similar habitat, possibly between the pinnae of palms that grew in the Dominican Republic some 20-40 million years ago.
Larval morphology and phenology of four fennoscandian species of Hydroporus Clairville (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae), with a preliminary key to the known larvae
The morphology of 3rd‐instar larvae of the genusHydroporus Clairville was studied and a key for the identification of Hydroporus larvaeis provided, including also 6 additional species.
Three new species are described and one, P. damonidaensis, presents a character unique within the family Phrynidae : three tibial segments in le g IV instead of four.
An alternative phylogeny of peracarid crustaceans
The polyphyletic nature of the Peracarida is discussed and it is suggested that at least three independent lines of "peracaridan" radiation might have arisen from a pre-Carboniferous syncarid-Iike ancestral eumalacostracan.
Extraordinary New Subterranean Isopods (Peracarida: Crustacea) from the Kimberley Region, Western Australia
A new genus and two new species of fresh water isopods from ground waters of the Kimberley region of West Australia are described, with features including free pleonites that are subequal except for an enlarged fifth pleonite.
Aspects of Malacostracan Evolution
This work concludes that the Crustacea Malacostraca were originally epibenthic, retaining a number of primitive features, and implies that the Malacstraca was originally epiphytesis, thereby emphasizing an important aspect of the eumalacOSTracan structural and functional plan.
