Article
The radiative cooling of butterfly wing scales hierarchy has great value in understanding how poikilotherms adapt to the environment and developing bionic materials. However, it remains unclear what the cooling system is like and how the variation of hierarchy affects the cooling efficiency. Therefore, the correlation between the variations of the...

Nuptial gift-giving is one of the most remarkable traits to have evolved among animal mating systems, and has brought about numerous hypotheses regarding their evolution and influence. Yet, their study has been confined to the modern fauna owing to their ephemeral nature and lack of traces on the environment suitable for preservation. Here we repor...

[Objectives] To improve the hatching rate of Cryptotympana atrata eggs and increase the cost effectiveness of breeding this species in captivity. [Methods] An orthogonal experimental design was used to determine the effects of different temperatures (10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 ℃) and humidity (35%, 45%, 55%, 65% and 75%) on the biological parameters of...

太阳光是地球上所有生物所需能量直接或间接的最主要来源。昆虫利用太阳热量的对策与机制是目前研究的热点。蝴蝶是一种典型的可以直接使用太阳热量用于自主飞行,并影响繁殖的昆虫;不过目前缺少系统阐述蝴蝶利用太阳热量的对策和机制的研究。本文总结前人对蝴蝶翅热量获取机制,以及热量获取对自主飞行发生和蝴蝶繁殖的影响等研究结果,并提出蝴蝶太阳热量利用对策和机制研究的未来展望,为深入研究昆虫太阳热量的对策与机制,提供一种新的研究思路。

Background: Metamorphosis remains one of the most complicated and poorly understood processes in insects. This is particularly so for the very dynamic transformations that take place within the pupal sheath of holometabolous insects. Only few studies address these transformations especially with regard to cranial structures of those holometabolous...

The practice of eating insects has been documented for a long time. With obvious economic and environmental advantages, edible insects are in the spotlight recently due to their enormous potential in multiple industries. A number of research has been conducted to maximize their value, but concerns have been raised for the food security. In this rev...

Background The metamorphosis is a complicated but very interesting process because of the highly dynamic transformation in sheath. Very few studies had coverage on the head muscles of larvae, pupae, and adults. Most of these studies were focusing on the model organisms about the rough changes of the external and internal tissues or the time of meta...

Mosquitoes are of great medical significance as vectors of deadly diseases. Despite this, little is known about their evolutionary history or how their present day diversity has been shaped. Within a phylogenetic framework, here we show a strong correlation between climate change and mosquito speciation rates: the first time to our knowledge such a...

Protomedeteragen. n. (Diptera: Dolichopodidae), a new genus of the subfamily Medeterinae, is described from the Oriental and Australasian realms based on four new species. Protomedeterasingaporensis Grootaert & Tang, sp. n. is designated as type of the new genus. The genus is peculiar because of the small body size, the small globular first flagell...

The long-legged fly Diostracus lamellatus Wei et Liu belongs to the subfamily Hydrophorinae of Dolichopodidae. The mitogenome of D. lamellatus was sequenced, the first representative of the mitogenome of the subfamily. The mitogenome is 14,143 bp totally, consisting of 13 protein-coding genes, two rRNAs, and 22 transfer RNAs. All genes have the sim...

The genus Diaphorus from Oriental Mainland China is introduced. The following three species are described as new to science: Diaphorus emeiensis Liu & Yang, sp. nov., Diaphorus suae Liu & Yang, sp. nov. and Diaphorus tenebricoflavus Liu & Yang, sp. nov. A key to the species of Diaphorus from Oriental Mainland China is presented.

Tipulomorpha has long been a problematic taxon in terms of familial composition, phylogenetic relationships among families and position relative to other ‘lower’ Diptera. Whole-transcriptome shotgun sequencing provides a powerful basis for phylogenetic studies. We performed de novo transcriptome sequencing to produce the first transcriptome dataset...
