New species and sex associations are proposed in the genus Lomachaeta Mickel, 1936. Six new species are described: Lomachaeta calamondin Williams, L. eironeia Williams, L. juanita Williams , L. meloi Williams , L. osita Williams , and L. warneri Williams. The previously unknown females of five species are described: L. beadugrimi (Pitts & Manley, 2004); L. chionothrix Pitts & Manley, 2004; L. hedera Williams & Pitts, 2009; L. hyphantria Pitts & Manley, 2004; and L. vacamuerta Williams & Pitts, 2...

Five new species of Traumatomutilla Andre from Brazil are described: T. fratres Bartholomay & Williams sp. nov., T. anhanga Bartholomay & Williams sp. nov., T. barathra Bartholomay & Williams sp. nov., T. poranga Bartholomay & Williams sp. nov. and T. pantherina Bartholomay & Williams sp. nov. Traumatomutilla tabapua Casal, 1969, T. luscoides Andre, 1908 and T. integella (Cresson, 1902) are redescribed. T. verecunda (Cresson, 1902) is proposed as junior synonym of T. integella based on morpholog...

Cleptoparasitic bees abandoned the pollen collecting for their offspring and lay their eggs on other bees provisioned nests. Also known as cuckoo bees they belong to several lineages, especially diverse in Apinae. We focused on a lineage of Apinae cleptoparasitic bees, the clade Ericrocidini+Rhathymini, which attack nests of the oil-collecting bees. We sequenced five genes for a broad sampling in this clade plus a large outgroup and reconstruct phylogeny and divergence times. We confirmed the mo...

Mutilideos (Hymenoptera, Mutillidae) sao parasitoides de formas imaturas de outros insetos, especialmente Hymenoptera aculeados. Eles sao caracterizados pelo seu acentuado dimorfismo sexual: todas as femeas sao apteras, enquanto a maioria dos machos e alada. A familia compreende cerca de 4.200 especies descritas e sua maior diversidade e encontrada nas regioes tropicais e subtropicais do mundo. Apesar do tamanho da familia na Regiao Neotropical (cerca de 1.500 especies, sendo 560 no Brasil), lev...

The Dasymutilla paradoxa species-group is newly proposed to include taxa formerly included in the genera Dasymutilla Ashmead, 1899, Traumatomutilla Andre, 1901 and some previously incertae sedis . This species-group now includes the following eight species: D. fasciventris Mickel, D. guanacaste Manley & Pitts, D. naranjo Manley & Pitts , D. paradoxa (Gerstaecker), comb. nov., D. paraparadoxa, sp. nov . , D. phya (Cameron), comb. nov., D. relata (Cameron) , and D. sliepniri Manley & Pitts.

A review of bee species used as hosts of mutillid wasps in the Neotropical region is presented. Three new confirmed host records are provided for the mutillid species Hoplomutilla biplagiata Mickel, 1939, Pappognatha limes Mickel, 1939, and Tallium aracati Casal, 1962. Two potential host records are provided for Euspinolia rufula Mickel, 1938 and Lophomutilla inca Fritz and Pagliano, 1993. Additionally, Mutilla hoplitiformis Strand, 1909, is transferred to the genus Darditilla. Correlations betw...

The monotypic genus Allotilla Schuster, 1949, previously known only from the Chaco biogeographic province of Argentina and Paraguay, is recorded for the first time in Brazil. These new records extend the known range of the genus to a new biogeographic dominion.

(With 1 figure)The family Mutillidae comprises a diverse group of solitary wasps, with over 4000 described species (Lelej, 2005). They are characterized by strong sexual dimorphism: all females are wingless, while males almost always are fully winged and capable of flight. Adult females are generally parasitoids of immature stages of other aculeate Hymenoptera. When inside a host nest they are known to drink hemolymph from the host larvae or prepupae. Adult males, on the other hand, generally fe...
