Twittering Pupae of Papilionid and Nymphalid Butterflies (Lepidoptera): Novel Structures and Sounds.

Ann Entomol Soc Am 2018 Oct 23;111(6):341-354. Epub 2018 Aug 23.

Forstzoologie und Entomologie, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität, Freiburg i.Br., Germany.

Pupae of numerous Papilionidae and Nymphalidae produce twitter sounds when wriggling in response to mechanical stimulation. The structural basis comprises distinct pairs of sound-producing organs (SPOs) located at intersegmental membranes of the abdomen. They differ-as the twitters do-in sampled taxa of Papilioninae, Epicaliini, and Heliconiini. Read More

(Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae) Rapidly Alters Production of Soldier Embryos in Response to Competition.

Ann Entomol Soc Am 2017 Sep 18;110(5):501-505. Epub 2017 Jul 18.

Department of Entomology, University of Georgia, Athens, GA 30602

Most social insects are free living and produce castes that develop in response to extrinsic environmental cues. Caste-forming polyembryonic insects, in contrast, are all endoparasitoids that form social groups inside the bodies of host insects. The best studied polyembryonic wasp is (Ashmead), which produces ∼3,000 clonal offspring that develop into two castes named reproductive and soldier larvae. Read More

Better Together: Association With ' Liberibacter Asiaticus' Increases the Reproductive Fitness of Its Insect Vector, (Hemiptera: Liviidae).

Ann Entomol Soc Am 2016 May 13;109(3):371-376. Epub 2016 Feb 13.

Department of Entomology and Nematology, Citrus Research and Education Center, University of Florida, Lake Alfred, FL 33850 ( ; ), and.

The duration of the evolutionary association between a pathogen and vector can be inferred based on the strength of their mutualistic interactions. A well-adapted pathogen is likely to confer some benefit or, at a minimum, exhibit low pathogenicity toward its host vector. Coevolution of the two toward a mutually beneficial association appears to have occurred between the citrus greening disease pathogen, Liberibacter asiaticus (Las), and its insect vector, the Asian citrus psyllid, (Kuwayama).

Mosquitoes in Bromeliads at Ground Level of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest: the Relationship Between Mosquito Fauna, Water Volume, and Plant Type.

Ann Entomol Soc Am 2015 Jul 16;108(4):449-458. Epub 2015 May 16.

Laboratório de Transmissores de Hematozoários, Fundação Oswaldo Cruz, Avenida Brasil, 4365, CEP 21045-900, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil.

Water accumulating in the axils of bromeliads provides habitat for numerous invertebrates, frequently among them, immature mosquitoes. To evaluate mosquito richness in bromeliads and the relationship between mosquito presence and biotic and abiotic variables, we performed a study in the Parque Nacional do Itatiaia, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Mosquitoes of genus were the most abundant and varied in species richness, among which nine belonged to subgenus , () Lutz and Theobald being the most frequent species. Read More

Geographic Variation of Photoperiodic Diapause but Not Adult Survival or Reproduction of the Invasive Mosquito Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae) in North America.

Ann Entomol Soc Am 2011 Nov;104(6):1309-1318

School of Biological Sciences, Behavior, Ecology, Evolution, and Systematics Section, Illinois State University, Normal, IL 61761-4120.

Climate differences across latitude can result in seasonal constraints and selection on life-history characters. Because Aedes albopictus (Skuse) invaded North America in the mid-1980s, it has spread across a range of ≈14° latitude and populations in the north experience complete adult mortality because of cold winter temperatures that are absent in the south. Life-table experiments were conducted to test for differences in the adult survival and reproductive schedules of Ae. Read More

Nature of Predation Risk Cues in Container Systems: Mosquito Responses to Solid Residues From Predation.

Ann Entomol Soc Am 2010 Nov;103(6):1038-1045

School of Biological Sciences; Illinois State University; Normal, IL 61790.

In aquatic systems, prey animals associate predation risk with cues that originate either from the predator or from injured conspecifics. Sources and benefits of these cues have received considerable attention in river, lake, and pond ecosystems but are less well understood in small container ecosystems that can hold less than a liter of water. Mosquitoes Aedes triseriatus (Say) and Aedes albopictus (Skuse) encounter predatory Corethrella appendiculata (Grabham) and Toxorhynchites rutilus (Coquillett) in small containers and show antipredatory behavioral responses.

Population Genetics of Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae) Invading Populations, Using Mitochondrial nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Dehydrogenase Subunit 5 Sequences.

Ann Entomol Soc Am 2009 Jan 1;102(1):144-150. Epub 2008 Oct 1.

Yale School of Public Health, New Haven, CT 06520-8034.

Aedes albopictus (Skuse) (Diptera: Culicidae), the Asian tiger mosquito indigenous to Asia, now an invasive species worldwide, is an important vector for several arboviruses. Genetic analysis using the mitochondrial nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide dehydrogenase subunit 5 (ND5) gene was carried out in populations from Cameroon (n = 50), Hawaii (n = 38), Italy (n = 20), the continental United States, Brazil, and its native range. Data for Brazil, the continental United States, and the native range was obtained from Birungi and Munstermann (2002). Read More

Molecular Phylogeny of Neotropical Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) Albitarsis Species Complex (Diptera: Culicidae).

Ann Entomol Soc Am 2005 Nov;98(6):918-925

Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, Department of Entomology, 503 Robert Grant Avenue, Silver Spring, MD 20910-7500.

A phylogeny was reconstructed for four species belonging to the Neotropical Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) albitarsis complex using partial sequences from the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I (COI) and NADH dehydrogenase 4 (ND4) genes and the ribosomal DNA ITS2 and D2 expansion region of the 28S subunit. The basis for initial characterization of each member of the complex was by correlated random amplification of polymorphic DNA-polymerase chain reaction (RAPD-PCR) markers. Analyses were carried out with and without an outgroup (An. Read More

Department of Entomology and Nematology, P.O. Box 110620, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611.

Resources and predation are both known to be important in structuring communities; however the strength of one factor may be affected by the intensity of the other. This study used a fully crossed factorial experiment in laboratory microcosms to examine the ability of a predator, Corethrella appendiculata (Grabham), and basal resources (leaf litter) to differentially affect two competing species of mosquito prey. Increased resources resulted in shorter developmental time and increased survivorship, mass, and population performance for both prey species, except when predation levels were high. Read More
