Prociphilus (Prociphilus) bumeliae (Schrank, 1801) was recorded for the first time in the Iberian Peninsula, while developing colonies on the branches of Fraxinus angustifolia Vahl, attended by Lasius niger (Linnaeus, 1758) and a Tapinoma ant of nigerrimum group (Nylander, 1856). Relationships with these two ant species are new records. The identif...

Since the invasive garden ant Lasius neglectus Van Loon, Boomsma & Andrásfalvy, 1990 was first detected in 1998 in Seva (Barcelona), and despite the number of amateurs and professionals dedicated to the study of ants in Spain, this species had only been located outside Catalonia in Tenerife, Vizcaya and Valencia. Here we present a detailed study of...
Article
Eight brachypterous species have been described within the hymenopteran genus Alloxysta. Intraspecific wing polymorphism linked to sex has been previously hypothesized within this genus and the aim of this work was to confirm whether the phylogenetic relationships based on morphological characters between brachypterous and macropterous species are...

The East-Asian aphid Tinocallis (Tinocallis) zelkowae is recorded for the first time in the Iberian Peninsula on Zelkova serrata (Ulmaceae) in the Viveros Gardens of the city of Valencia (Spain). This is the second record of the species in Europe, after being cited on a Japanese zelkova bonsai in England in 1974. Alate viviparous females and sexual...

The aphid genus Cerataphis Lichtenstein is native to Southeast Asia although several species have been distributed to other tropical regions of the world. Cerataphis brasiliensis (Hempel) and Cerataphis lataniae (Boisduval) are of interest due to their potential as pests on palms. Those species and Cerataphis orchidearum (Westwood) may be morpholog...

Here we describe Aphidius erodii sp. n. associated with Acyrthosiphon malvae (Mosley, 1841), which is a pest on herbaceous ornamental Geranium and Pelargonium plants, but also an increasingly serious pest of strawberry in Northern and Western Europe. Aphidius erodii sp. n. is diagnosed on the basis of the COI barcode gene and morphological traits,...

Aphids (Hemiptera, Aphididae) feed on the phloem and some of them induce the formation of conspicuous galls on their primary hosts. Histological studies were proposed to elucidate the evolutionary history of galling habit in Pemphigini tribe, assessing if gall complexity indicates the phylogenetic relations among gall inducers. Nine Eriosomatinae g...

Exotic ants are a growing component of urban and disturbed habitats worldwide. Sampling in two Iberian Mediterranean localities revealed several exotic species. The tree-nesting, black acrobat ant Crematogaster inermis Mayr, 1862, has been detected nesting outdoors on a Robinia pseudoacacia tree in a public garden in Valencia (Spain) and represents...

Biological invasion of aphids and other insects has been increased due to long distance commercial transportation of plant material. The bamboo-aphid-parasitoid association is strictly specific and even though it does not develop interactions with the local environment it should be listed as part of the fauna of southwestern Europe. On-going resear...

Elucidating the diets of insect predators is important in basic and applied ecology, such as for improving the effectiveness of conservation biological control measures to promote natural enemies of crop pests. Here, we investigated the aphid diet of two common aphid predators in Central European agroecosystems, the native Coccinella septempunctata...

Species from the genus Paralipsis are obligatory endoparasitoids of root aphids in the Palaearctic. It is known that these species are broadly distributed, parasitizing various aphid hosts and showing great biological and ecological diversity. On the other hand, this group of endoparasitoids is understudied and was thought to be represented by a si...

As there was no consensus on the presence or absence of Aphis (Toxoptera) citricidus (Kirkaldy) in Chile, a meticulous literature survey has been carried out to clarify the issue. From this survey, it can be concluded that A. (T.) citricidus is not present in Chile, that it has never been cited as present from first-hand information/observations in...

Trophobiosis between aphids (Aphididae, Hemiptera) and ants (Formicidae, Hymenoptera) is considered to provide an important source of nutrition for ants by aphid honeydew and aphids themselves used as prey. However, little is known about nutrient fluxes and the relative importance of trophobiosis for different ant species. Combining direct contact...

The aphid–natural enemy interaction in winter wheat fields constitutes a complex system that has been frequently studied because of its implication for biological control. However, not all of the aphids living in cereal fields are crop pests, as there are also aphids living on weeds that may serve as alternative hosts or prey for aphid parasitoids...

Toxoptera aurantii (Boyer de Fonscolombe) is an aphid pest of great agricultural importance, not only due to its polyphagy but mostly due to its ability to transmit various plant viruses e.g. Citrus tristeza virus on Citrus (Blackman & Eastop, 2000). Blackman & Eastop (2000) considered this aphid to be entirely anholocyclic, because no sexual morph...
