Malagasy Conostigmus (Hymenoptera: Ceraphronoidea) and the secret of scutes
The results reveal that body size polyphenism in Megaspilidae is most likely related to cell number and not cell size variation, and that cell size differs between epithelial fields of the head and that of the mesosoma. 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
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.
