The Japanese species of the genus Tmesiphorus are revised: three known species are redescribed and two new species are described. They are: Tmesiphorus costatus Weise, T. crassicornis Sharp, T. princeps Sharp, T. kinomurai sp. nov. , and T. okinawensis sp. nov. A key to species is provided. Four species, T. crassicornis , T. princeps , T. kinomurai sp. nov. and T. okinawensis sp. nov. , are recognized as obligate myrmecophiles.

Megasybacodes brevitarsis Kakizoe, Maruyama & Masumoto, a new genus and new species of the tribe Rhyparini, is described based on a single female from Borneo. It is allied to the genus Sybacodes Fairmaire, 1896, but easily distinguished by its short protarsi, broad flattened basal tarsomeres of the meso- and metatarsi, broad flattened tibiae, and wrinkled pronotal and elytral surfaces. Checklist of rhyparine species from Borneo is also provided.

Host-symbiont interactions are embedded in ecological communities and range from unspecific to highly specific relationships. Army ants and their arthropod guests represent a fascinating example of species-rich host-symbiont associations where host specificity ranges across the entire generalist - specialist continuum. In the present study, we compared the behavioral and chemical integration mechanisms of two extremes of the generalist - specialist continuum: generalist ant-predators in the genu...

Aphaenogaster gamagumayaa sp. nov., a new troglobiotic (true cave-dwelling) ant species, from a limestone cave on the island of Okinawa (Okinawa-jima), Ryukyu Archipelago, Japan is described. This is the first discovery of a troglobiotic ant in Japan and the second verified record worldwide. This species has only been found in a cave area with heavy guano deposits, and some worker ants were observed carrying guano. The evidence for categorizing this new species as troglobiont is discussed.

Myrmecophilus crickets are well-known inquilines that live and obtain food resources in ant nests. In Japanese Myrmecophilus species various degrees of host specificity are reflected in behavioral differences among species. For example, extremely specialized species perform trophallaxis with their host ant species, whereas generalist species may steal food from their hosts without any intimate contact. We examined behavioral variations among four Myrmecophilus species that use different hosts an...

The rove beetle subfamily Aleocharinae is the largest subfamily of animals known in terms of species richness. Two small aleocharine tribes, Gymnusini and Deinopsini, are believed to be a monophyletic clade, sister to the rest of the Aleocharinae. Although the phylogenetic relationships of the extant lineages have been well investigated, the monophyly of Gymnusini has been questioned due to a series of previous studies and the recent discovery of the aleocharine †Cretodeinopsis Cai & Huang (Dein...
