ABSTRACT The types and undescribed material of the hymenopteran fossils of the Insect Bed of the Bembridge Marls from the Isle of Wight (UK) are critically revised and studied. A total of 1460 fossils are recorded and attributed to 20 families: Gasteruptiidae s.l. (1); Proctotrupidae (3); Diapriidae (24); Cynipidae (7); Figitidae (6); Pteromalidae (1); Agaonidae (3); Scelionidae (12); Platygastridae (2); Ichneumonidae (32); Braconidae (75); Bethylidae (3); Crabronidae (2); Sphecidae (1); Apidae… Expand
Modernisation of the Hymenoptera: ants, bees, wasps, and sawflies of the early Eocene Okanagan Highlands of western North America
Abstract Most major modern families of Hymenoptera were established in the Mesozoic, but the diversifications within ecologically key trophic guilds and lineages that significantly influence theExpand
Synopsis of the fossil flat wasps Epyrinae (Hymenoptera, Bethylidae), with description of three new genera and 10 new species
The subfamily Epyrinae is the most common in the bethylid fossil record. Its geological history ranges from the Eocene to the Pleistocene, and it is the only subfamily that has no records in theExpand
A new genus and three new species of fossil braconid wasps (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonoidea) from Eocene Baltic and Rovno ambers
Abstract. New parasitoid wasps of the family Braconidae are documented from Eocene Baltic and Rovno ambers. A new fossil genus belonging to the braconid subfamily Exothecinae, Palaeocolastes n. gen.,Expand
Contributions to the knowledge of Formicidae (Hymenoptera, Aculeata): a new diagnosis of the family, the first global male-based key to subfamilies, and a treatment of early branching lineages
The diagnosis of the Formicidae is revised, including five new, unreversed apomorphies, of which one is a unique synapomorphy. The first global male-based key to all subfamilies is provided andExpand
The Flora of the Insect Limestone (latest Eocene) from the Isle of Wight, southern England

TLDR
New non-destructive techniques have yielded additional taxonomic information and common plant remains were probably derived from vegetation near a freshwater body, sometimes with slight brackish influence, whilst rarer elements were probably blown in from a greater distance. Expand
First Record of the Ant Genus Crematogaster (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) from the Late Eocene European Ambers
The ant genus Crematogaster Lund, 1831 is recorded for the first time from the Late Eocene Rovno amber, Ukraine (Priabonian stage, 33.9–37.8 Ma). C. primitivasp. nov. is described based on singleExpand
Seven remarkable new fossil species of parasitoid wasps (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae) from the Eocene Messel Pit
TLDR
Seven new ichneumonid fossil species and two new genera from a remarkable insect fossil site, the Eocene Messel Pit in Germany are described, demonstrating the need for a more rigorous approach in the taxonomic placement of fossil ich pneumonid genera and subfamilies. Expand
Miocene ants (Hymenoptera, Formicidae) from Crimea
TLDR
One of the studied forewing imprints is similar in venation to Paraphaenogaster microphthalmus Dlussky, 1981, described from the Middle Miocene of Vishnevaya Balka (Stavropol province, Russia) and so is attributed to this species. Expand
Ichneumonid parasitoid wasps from the Early Eocene Green River Formation: five new species and a revision of the known fauna (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae)
TLDR
Two new fossil genera and five new species of Ichneumonidae from the Eocene Green River Formation are described and the importance of careful taxonomic placement of fossils and difficulties in ichneumonid palaeontology caused by host-related homoplasies and a lack of knowledge about the age of the recent subfamilies are discussed. Expand
Morphometric analysis of fossil bumble bees (Hymenoptera, Apidae, Bombini) reveals their taxonomic affinities
TLDR
A large portion of the known and presumed bumble bee fossils were re-examined in an attempt to better understand their affinities with extant Bombini, showing that Calyptapis florissantensis Cockerell, 1906 and Oligobombus cuspidatus Antropov, 2014 likely belong to stem-group Bombini. Expand

The first Late Cretaceous ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) from southern Africa, with comments on the origin of the Myrmicinae
TLDR
Ants (10 specimens) comprise 12% of the hymenopteran Armaniid-Kind assemblage collected from the Turonian deposits at Orapa, Botswana and the significance of these findings is discussed in the context of observed faunal changes in Cretaceous ants, evolutionary changes in the Ponerinae, and time and mode of origin of Myrmicinae. 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
AFFINITIES OF THE FOSSIL WASP, HOPLISIDEA KOHLIANA COCKERELL (HYMENOPTERA: SPHECIDAE: SPHECINAE)
TLDR
The fossil wasp, Hoplisidea kohliana, was described by Cockerell (1906) from a single specimen taken from the "Miocene" shales of Florissant, Colorado, and was covered with long setae indicating that the wasp was fairly hairy. Expand
Occurrence of ant (hymenoptera, formicidae) and aphid (homoptera, aphidinea) syninclusions in Saxonian and Rovno ambers
TLDR
Ant species found as syninclusions with aphids in Rovno and Saxonian ambers are listed for the first time and strongly suggests that C. goepperti and Germaraphis formed an association during their lifetime. Expand
A MONOGRAPH OF THE BALTIC AMBER BEES AND EVOLUTION OF THE APOIDEA (HYMENOPTERA)
TLDR
The genus Electrapina is elevated to tribal rank among the corbiculate Apinae and the subfamily Glyptapinae of Cockerell is reduced to subtribal rank within Osmiini. Expand
Social Wasps in Amber
A new species of the paper wasp genus Agelaia Lepeletier (Hymenoptera: Vespidae; Polistinae, Epiponini) is described from Miocene amber of the Dominican Republic. Agelaia electra is the only socialExpand
ANTS OF THE DOMINICAN AMBER ( HYMENOPTERA : FORMICIDAE )
The Dolichoderinae, in particular the species of Azteca and Iridomyrmex, are by a wide margin the most abundantly represented ants in the Dominican amber. They are also exceptional in the number ofExpand
Phylogeny of the subfamilies of the family Braconidae (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonoidea)
TLDR
The cladograms obtained show that the Braconidae can be divided into three major groups of subfamilies, and these are a lineage comprising the mainly ectoparasitic cyclostomes and relatives, and two advanced endoparAsitic groups, both apparently derived from somewhere near the endopareptic cyclostome subfamily Rogadinae Foerster, 1862 sensu stricto.

TLDR
One new tribe and five new genera based on two existing and three new species are described, and an illustrated key is provided to the Old World genera of Braconinae. Expand
Revision of the Palaearctic species of the genus Clinocentrus (Hymenoptera, Braconidae)
TLDR
The composition and geographic distribution of the genus Clinicocentrus and the probable generic position of fossil species described by Brues (1933) as Clinocentrus are discussed and the systematic position of this genus in Exothecinae is discussed and arguments presented to support the differentiation of exothecines and rogadines.
