BARANOWSKI, R. Revision of the genus Leiodes Latreille of North and Central America (Coleoptera: Leiodidae). 1993. 149 pp. SEK 224.
A taxonomic revision of the genus Leiodes Latreille of North and Central America is presented including a historical review, information on natural history, collecting techniques, diagnostic characters, and a brief discussion of zoogeography. Seventytwo species are recognized. Fortysix species are described as new, 26 from America north of Mexico, 18 from Mexico, 1 from Mexico and Belize (British Honduras) and 1 from Panama and Costa Rica.
The genus Leiodes is divided into 26 species groups without recognition of subgenera. A separate key is provided for the species of Canada and the United States, and another for the species of Mexico and Central America. Each species is described and illustrated, including all available data. Maps showing the distribution in North or Central America are presented for all species.
NOLTE, U. Egg masses of Chironomidae (Diptera). A review, including new obsertvations and a preliminary key. 1993. 75 pp. SEK 120.
Contains original data on egg masses of 25 genera (32 species), a review of the literature from 1713 with a critical evaluation of the organisation pattern present in the egg masses, a preliminary key and an illustrated glossary.
MUONA, J. Review of the phylogeny, classification and biology of the family Eucnemidae (Coleoptera). 1993. 133 pp. SEK 200.
A new classification of the family based on the phylogenetic studies is presented. The family is divided in 8 subfamilies and 28 tribes. A key to subfamilies and tribes is given and the synapomorphies evaluated. A large number of new genera and spercies, synonyms and new combinations are given.
PAPE, TH. The World Blaesoxipha Loew, 1861 (Diptera: Sarcophagidae). 1994. 247 pp. SEK 280.
The genus Blaesoxipha is redefined and divided into 10 subgenera based on a cladistic analysis. A catalogue of the world species is provided giving information on distribution, biology and bibliographic information for 242 valid species. 15 new generic and 39 new specific synonyms are proposed together with 53 new species.
RONQUIST, F. Phylogeny and classification of the Liopteridae, an archaic group of cynipoid wasps (Hymenoptera) 1995. 74 pp. SEK 120.
The world fauna of the mainly subtropic and tropic family Liopteridaeis revised at generic level. A cladistic analysis of 54 morphological characters are presented, forming the basis for a new classification. The family is divided into 11 monophyletic genera representing 130 species. Each genus is described and a key is provided.
SCHELLER, U. First record of Pauropoda (Myriapoda) from Sierra Leone. 1995. 54 pp. SEK 100.
Pauropoda are reported from Sierra Leone for the first time. 27 species were found which belong to 4 genera in Pauropodidae and one genus in Brachypauropodidae. The latter family is reported from continental Africa for the first time. 21 species new to science are described and figured: 15 in Allopauropus, 1 in Pauropus, 1 in Hemipauropus, 3 in Polypauropus and one in Pananmauropus.
SÆTHER, O. A. & WANG, X. Revision of the genus Paraphaenocladius Thienemann, 1924 of the world (Diptera: Chironomidae, Orthocladiinae). 1995. 69 pp. SEK 120.
Generic diagnosis to all stages of the genus Paraphaenocladius are given. A synapomorphic diagram showing Paraphaenoclaius as a sistergroup of Parametriocnemus is presented. In addition a parsimony analysis using the PAUP program is given. The genus is divided into 5 spcies groups, the irritus , dewulfi, proprius, penerasus, and impensus groups. Keys to male and female imagines, pupae and larvae are given. — 23 taxa including 16 species and 7 subspecies are decribed or redecribed. The genus is nearly exclusively Holarctic with only the dewulfi group Afrotropical. The differentiation into subspecies and some species appears to have taken place as a result of postglacial and interglacial vicariance events.
HANSSON, CH. Taxonomic revision of the Nearctic species of Omphale Haliday (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae). 1996. 78 pp. SEK 140.
The Nearctic members of the genus Omphale Haliday are revised, and a key to the species and other genera of Entedoninae with delimited clypeus are included. The interpretation of Omphale and of species-groups within the genus is different from previous studies due to the dicovery of new characters. 57 species of Nearctic Omphale are regarded as valid of which 35 species are described as new.
Six previously described species are newly recorded from the Nearctic region; one new name is proposed, 3 species are recombined and 4 specific synonymies are established. — Nearctic Ompahle is divided in 8 species-groups, in addition there are 8 unplaced species. The division of species-groups is partly based on characteristics of male genitalia, a structure very seldom used in taxonomic studies of Eulophidae, but here shown to be a valuable tool in the classification. Seven lectotypes are designated.
SÖLI, G. E. E. On the morphology and phylogeny of Mycetophilidae, with a revision of Coelosia Winnertz (Diptera, Sciaroidea). 1997. 137 pp. SEK 160.
The world fauna of Coelosia Winnertz, 1863 is revised. Descriptions and diagnoses of the genus and all 24 known species are given, together with keys to males and associated females. A hypothesis of the phylogenetic relationship among the species is presented based on a cladistic analysis. The two genera Boletina and Gnoriste combined were used as outgroup in the analysis. The monophyly of the genus is well supported by the data. Despite much homoplasy, two species groups can be recognised. — All available type material of species assigned to Coelosia have been studied. In addition, identified and unidentified specimens were borrowed from 22 museums and institutions.
All known species are redescribed, and lectotypes designated for bicornis Stackelberg, 1946, flava Staeger, 1840, modesta Johannsen, 1912, sapporoensis Okada, 1939, tenella (Zetterstedt, 1852) and truncata Lundström, 1909. Coelosia fusca Bezzi, 1892 was found to be a senior synonym of silvatica Landrock, 1918, modesta Johannsen, 1912 of quadricornis Stackelberg, 1942, and pygophora Coquillett, 1904 of lepida Johannsen, 1912. Three species are transferred from Coelosia to Coelophthinia Edwards, 1941, namely flavithorax Freemann, 1951, neotropica Lane, 1959 and accita Plassmann & Vogel, 1990.
Thirteen new species are described, burmacola and distylata from the Oriental region, and brevilobata, huitzilopochtlii, longilobata, quetzalcoatli, scopariata, succinacea, tezcatlipocai, tlaloci, vockerothi, xochiquetzali and xolotli from the Nearctic region. — Of the 24 species in the genus, 13 are Nearctic, 6 Palaearctic, 3 Holarctic and 2 Oriental. The northernmost and southernmost records originate from 79°N and 16°N, respectively. Judged from the revealed phylogeny and present distribution of the species, an Eurasian origin of the genus appears most likely. The evolution and diversification of the genus is likely to coincide with the Tertiary palaeogeological development of Eurasia and North America.
