Taxonomical revision of subfamily Anacharitinae (Hymenoptera: Cynipoidea: Figitidae) by Noel Mata Casanova( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Superfamily Cynipoidea (Hymenoptera: Apocrita) includes two very different groups of organismes. Macrocynipoids is a paraphyletic group of parasitoids of wood-bearing beetle larvae, characterized by its big size, and with a very low biodiversity. Microcynipoids, on the other hand, are a monophyletic group of smaller wasps (up to 3mm) with two distinct ways of life: while Cynipidae are gall-makers, Figitidae are parasitoids of endopterygot insects. Family Figitidae (Hymenoptera: Cynipodea) includes twelve subfamilies of parasitic wasps. Anacharitinae is one of those, characterized by being parasitoids of the aphid-feeding larvae of Hemerobiidae (Neuroptera). This subfamily included eight genera – Acanthaegilips Ashmead, 1897; Aegilips Haliday, 1835; Anacharis Dalman, 1823; Calofigites Kieffer, 1909; Hexacharis Kieffer, 1907; Proanacharis, 1996; Solenofigites Díaz, 1979 and Xyalaspis Hartig, 1843 – with most of its biodiversity located in the Neotropical and Palaearctic regions. The knowledge of the subfamily was scarce and outdated, and except for Acanthaegilips, there were no recent revisions on the taxonomical status of Anacharitinae species. The diversity of the subfamily in some of the most biodivresity-rich bioregions had not been studied. Thus, a revision was needed. The present Thesis has prosecuted three main objectives: i) studying the Anacharitinae global biodiversity, ii) studying the biology and relationships of its members and their hosts, iii) make the results accessible to the scientific community. These objectives have been accomplished through exmining all the type material of the previously described species, along with large series of unidentified material, deposited in scientific institutions all around the world. The results have been synthetized in identification keys fully illustrated and published in scientific journals with impact factor. The study of Anacharitinae material has led to the following taxonomical changes have been made: - Two new genera have been described: Acanthaegilopsis Pujade-Villar, 2013 and Cornaegilips Mata-Casanova & Pujade-Villar, 2017, the first with teo known species and the former with just one species. - Genera Calofigites, Hexacharis, Proanacharis and Solenofigites do not present changes regarding their taxonomical status. Calofigites comprises two species, while the other three remain as monotypic genera. - Regarding genus Anacharis, 12 species are considered still valid, while 10 are not considered valid anymore: 6 are synonyms, 2 have been designated as incertae sedis, and 2 have been moved to other genera (Aegilips and Figites Latreille, 1802). 8 new species have been described. - Regarding genus Xyalaspis, 8 species are considered still valid, while 5 are not considered valid anymore: 4 are synonyms, and 1 has been moved to other genera (Aegilips). 14 new species have been described. The study of Anacharitinae material has led to the following changes in the known distribution areas of the subfamily: - For the Afrotropical region, 4 genera and 11 species are known to be found there., with one endemic genus: Acanthaegilopsis. - For Asia (includying both the Eastern Palaearctic and the Indomalayan regions), 4 genera and 13 species are known to be found there, 5 of them being found in the Indomalayan region, which holded no previous Anacharitinae records. - For the Australasian region, 3 genera and 4 species are known to be found there. - For the Nearctic region, 4 genera and 17 species are found there, with one endemic genus: Hexacharis. -For the Neotropical region, 7 genera and 39 species are known to be found there. 4 genera are endemic of the region: Acanthaegilips, Calofigites, Cornaegilips and Solenofigites

Revision of the types of species of Alloxysta described by Cameron and Fergusson (Hymenoptera: figitidae: charipinae) and deposited in the Natural History Museum (London), including a key to the fauna of Great Britain by Mar Ferrer-Suay( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Type material of the species of Alloxysta described by Cameron and Fergusson and deposited in the Natural History Museum of London has been revised. Seven species are considered valid: Alloxysta abdera Fergusson, 1986, A. basimacula (Cameron, 1886), A. crassa (Cameron, 1889), A. mullensis (Cameron, 1883), A. piceomaculata (Cameron, 1883), A. pleuralis (Cameron, 1879) and A. semiaperta Fergusson, 1986. A. basimacula, A. crassa, A. maculicollis (Cameron, 1886), A. perplexa (Cameron, 1889) and A. piceomaculata are here removed from synonymy with A. macrophadna (Hartig, 1841). A. rufi ceps (Cameron, 1883) is removed from synonymy with A. victrix (Westwood, 1833). A. caledonica (Cameron, 1886) and A. perplexa are here synonymized with A. basimacula. A. maculicollis, A. ruficeps and A. ruficollis (Cameron, 1883) are here synonymized with A. castanea (Hartig, 1841). A. ancylocera (Cameron, 1886) was correctly synonymized with A. fuscicornis (Hartig, 1841), A. curvicornis (Cameron, 1883) was correctly synonymized with A. victrix and A. filicornis (Cameron, 1889) was correctly synonymized with A. macrophadna. Complete redescriptions and illustrations are given for valid species. A key for all the Alloxysta species found so far in Great Britain is given

Charipinae Worldwide revision with special attention to Alloxysta and Phaenoglyphis genera (Hym.: Cynipoidea: Figitidae) by Mar Ferrer Suay( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Members of the subfamily Charipinae (Hymenoptera: Cynipoidea: Figitidae) are secondary parasitoids of aphids via Aphidiinae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) and Aphelininae (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae) and secondary parasitoids of psylids via Encyrtidae (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea). The charipines affect effectiveness of the primary parasitoids by decreasing their abundance and modifying their behavior. As a result, increase of aphid host populations can cause severe yield losses in some of the most important crops. Therefore, studies on the subfamily Charipinae have a great economical and biological importance. This subfamily was until now in a chaotic state with a null phylogenetic knowledge, with many described species within the last and a half century but without any deep revision of them, nor any study of the generic internal relationship. Before focus on ecological and molecular detailed studies based on charipines, it was necessary to carry out a basic taxonomic revision of this group. As well as study their diversity and distribution patterns, which has considerably helped to the identification of species we are working with. This has been the main objective during the last years, started with the updated worldwide catalogue of this subfamily. The knowledge about the subfamily Charipinae has been significantly increased, with special attention to the Alloxysta and Phaenoglyphis, the most abundant and widely distributed genera within this subfamily; these genera are also the most important affecting to the practices of aphid biological control. As a first step, it has been revised the type material of the Alloxysta, Apocharips and Phaenoglyphis genera in order to complete the revision of this subfamily. Thanks to the study of this type material, with the revision of many specimens deposited in different institutions and sent to the University of Barcelona, it has been possible to establish the interspecific limits based on morphological features, making new synonymies or breaking down groups of species when it has been necessary. On the other hand, a complete faunistic revision of the members of this subfamily has been due to term, thanks to these studies the knowledge about the diversity and distribution patterns of the Charipinae has been greatly increased. The Charipinae is a cosmopolitan subfamily, well distributed around the five biogeographical regions: Oriental, Australia, Africa, Neotropical and Nearctic. For the preparation of this thesis we have selected twelve papers as examples to illustrate the achievements of the objectives proposed. The first three papers show the taxonomic revisions that have been carried out to validate and establish the correct taxonomic status of all the Charipinae species, the next two explain how we have dealt with some taxonomic problems we have found during these studies, another pointing to the importance of the revision of the material deposited in different institutions, five focused on the biodiversity revisions made in every continent establishing many new records and describing many new species, and an example of the a work which not only study the Charipinae biodiversity also new trophic relationships are discovered. As a complement we include all the new species which are still under review and which will be included in the new update catalogue that we have prepared after all the revisions and in the complete Charipinae keys. All the information recompiled during these years of studies will be soon available to be consulted on a website that we are working on at this moment in order to maximize the disclosure of our results, as well as in different papers. With this thesis the taxonomy of the subfamily Charipinae is now solved and new studies from different points of view (molecular and ecology) could be proposed to continue with the studies focus on this interesting group of wasps
