- BiologyEuropean Journal of Taxonomy
Eight new species of chewing lice in the genus Philopterus Nitzsch, 1818, parasitic on hosts in the bird families Cardinalidae, Chloropseidae, Hirundinidae, Icteridae, Motacillidae, Paridae, and Vangidae from China, Peru, South Africa, Thailand, and the USA are described and illustrated.
Chewing Lice (Insecta: Phthiraptera) from Migratory Birds of the Curonian Spit
- BiologyEntomological Review
The fauna of chewing lice (Insecta: Phthiraptera) from migratory birds was studied in 2008–2009 and 2017 on the Curonian Spit, including 11 species new to the Russian Federation, 29 speciesnew to the Northwest of Russia, and 2 new host records.

A host-parasite list, and a list of hosts which breed in the Galápagos Islands but without lice recorded from them are included, and four lectotypes from the Kellogg Collection are formally designate.

Molecular phylogeny of the tribe Candalidini (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae): systematics, diversification and evolutionary history
- BiologySystematic Entomology
A dated phylogeny and biogeographical and habitat analyses based on the DEC model in BioGeoBEARS indicated that the ancestor of the Candalidini most likely evolved in rainforest habitats of the mesic biome in situ on the Australian plate of Southern Gondwana during the Eocene.

An integrative approach elucidates the systematics of Sea Hayward and Cybdelis Boisduval (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Biblidinae)
- BiologySystematic Entomology
The molecular analysis recovers Sea sister to Cybdelis, and this clade sister to Eubagina, rendering Epicaliina (sensu Lamas, ) paraphyletic, and the phylogenetic position of Sea and CybDelis in Biblidinae is ascertain.
Cophylogenetic analysis of lice in the Colpocephalum complex (Phthiraptera: Amblycera)
The chewing louse genus Colpocephalum parasitizes nearly a dozen distantly related orders of birds, and there was no evidence of correlated cophylogenetic patterns between these two louse groups, suggesting that their host distribution patterns have been shaped by different evolutionary processes.
