    The Hymenoptera collection of Lars Huggert housed in the Swedish Museum of Natural History2021In: Entomologisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0013-886X, Vol. 142, no 4, p. 207-220Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the autumn of 2006 the large insect collection of Lars Huggert (1942–2003) was kindly donated to the Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm by the siblings of the collector. A first assessment of the size of the collection, estimated more than 30 000 specimens of Coleoptera, 23 000 specimens of Hymenoptera and about 2 000 specimens of Diptera. Here an inventory of the Hymenoptera part of the Lars Huggert donation is given including an account of type specimens of 32 taxa described by Huggert and currently housed in NHRS. Specimens of more than 1 330 species of Hymenoptera were included in the donation which enriched the existing NHRS collections immensely. Huggert described 80 species and 34 genera/subgenera in the families Diapriidae Haliday, 1833, Platygastridae Haliday, 1833, Scelionidae, Haliday 1839 and Pteromalidae Dalman, 1820 and these families are particularly well-represented in the donation.

    A modern workflow for non-destructive DNA extraction and slide preparation of thrips (Insecta, Thysanoptera) for taxonomic studies and collection deposition2023In: Norwegian Journal of Entomology, ISSN 1501-8415, E-ISSN 1894-0692, Vol. 70, p. 1-5Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent studies of taxonomy, systematics and ecology often depend on molecular data, and non-destructive DNA extraction protocols have gained popularity as a method of saving a physical voucher specimen. However, the quality of the permanently mounted specimens is seldom discussed, and detailed protocols often left out. Here a modified and optimized protocol for Thysanoptera is presented and outlined in detail.

    Revision and morphological analysis of the Ragadidae (Insecta, Diptera)2019In: European journal of taxonomy, E-ISSN 2118-9773, Vol. 0, no 521, p. 1-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Several taxonomic groups within Empidoidea Latreille, 1809 have been subject to unclear phylogenetic assignments along with multiple parallel hypotheses causing difficulties in classification and morphological identification. This study reviews the internal classification of the Ragadidae and includes a diagnosis and description of all included subfamilies and genera based on the results of an analysis of morphological characters using maximum parsimony. Illustration of important characters and a key to all genera in the family is given. The genus Hormopeza Zetterstedt, 1838 is found to be most closely related to Anthepiscopus Becker, 1891 and Iteaphila Zetterstedt, 1838, and the subfamily Iteaphilinae Wahlberg & Johanson, 2018 is therefore expanded to also include that genus. Hormopeza is consequently excluded from Ragadinae Sinclair, 2016. This study provides diagnoses, descriptions and keys in a contribution to a thorough classification of the empidoid groups and increased ease in morphological recognition.

    Rhipidothrips brunneus (Williams, 1913) (Thysanoptera: Aeolothripidae) ny art för Sverige, samt ett nytt landskapsfynd av Thrips menyanthidis Bagnall, 1923 (Thysanoptera: Thripidae)2023In: Entomologisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0013-886X, Vol. 144, no 1-2, p. 47-51Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Species in the order Thysanoptera, or thrips, are often overlooked, perhaps because of their small size and hidden biology. Even though some thrips species are broadly distributed in northern Europe, records in Sweden are lacking. This is also the case for the species Rhipidothrips brunneus (Williams, 1913), here presented with the first record for Sweden. Thrips menyanthidis Bagnall, 1923 is a species associated with Menyanthes trifoliata L. and was previously only known from one locality in Dalarna, but is here recorded for the first time from Värmland.

    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the Swedish diversity of the thrips families Aeolothripidae and Melanthripidae. Currently, a total of 12 species in 2 genera of Aeolothripidae occur in Sweden, and 1 in Melanthripidae. The aims of this study include to provide an updated identification key with photographic material and an updated checklist of the country with provincial records. In this study both museum material and new material collected in understudied provinces are included, and a large number of molecular barcodes are produced. The results reveal 26 new provincial records in Sweden, predominantly in northern regions, and 11 provinces in total had new species records. New records of Rhipidothrips brunneus Williams 1913 warranted an examination of distinguishing characters compared to R. niveipennis Reuter, 1899. The original description of R. niveipennis is found to lack sufficient characters to delimit the species, and a redescription based on syntypes is presented.

    Molecular phylogenetics reveals novel relationships within Empidoidea (Diptera)2018In: Systematic Entomology, ISSN 0307-6970, E-ISSN 1365-3113, Vol. 43, p. 619-636Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Empidoidea represent a large and diverse superfamily of true flies, and to date no stable hypothesis on the phylogeny exists. Previous classifications have been based on morphological data and the relationships among several groups are still unknown. Using the mitochondrial genes cytochrome oxidase c subunit I (COI) and cytochrome β (Cytβ) and the nuclear genes carbomoylphosphate synthase domain of rudimentary (CAD), elongation factor‐1α (EF‐1α) and isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH) in a Bayesian analysis, we tested the support of higher taxonomic groups within this large superfamily of flies. We re‐evaluated previous hypotheses of evolution within the group and present a highly supported phylogenetic hypothesis. Atelestidae, Dolichopodidae, Empididae and Hybotidae were supported as monophyletic families, with Atelestidae as sister group to the remaining Empidoidea. Within the family Hybotidae, Bicellariinae stat.n. formed the sister group to the other subfamilies. The family Ragadidae stat.n. is established to include the subfamily Ragadinae and the new subfamily Iteaphilinae subfam.n.; Ragadidae was sister group to the Empididae. Dolichopodidae was found to form a sister group to Ragadidae plus Empididae. Within Empididae, Hemerodromiinae was found to be a nonmonophyletic group. The tribes Hilarini and Hemerodromiini stat. rev. were recovered as sister groups, as were Empidini and Chelipodini stat. rev. The former family Brachystomatidae was found to be nested within Empididae. A revised classification and diagnoses of nondolichopodid families, subfamilies and tribes are provided.

    To be or not to be a subspecies: description of Saperda populnea lapponica ssp. n. (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae) developing in downy willow (Salix lapponum L.)2017In: ZooKeys, ISSN 1313-2989, E-ISSN 1313-2970, Vol. 691, p. 103-148Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     A new subspecies of the European cerambycid Saperda populnea (Linnaeus, 1758) is described: Saperda populnea lapponica ssp. n. based on specimens from Scandinavia. The male genitalia characters were examined and found to provide support for this separation, as well as differences in morphology, geographical distribution and bionomy. The preferred host tree for the nominate subspecies S. populnea populnea is Populus tremula L., whereas S. populnea lapponica ssp. n. is considered to be monophagous on Salix lapponum L. DNA sequence data of mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI) was generated from Scandinavian specimens of S. populnea populnea and specimens representing S. populnea lapponica ssp. n. The two subspecies were not reciprocally monophyletic and genetic distances in COI were small. All synonyms of S. populnea populnea have been considered, and species similar to S. populnea populnea have been examined, and not found to be related to S. populnea lapponica ssp. n. A male lectotype has been designated for each of the two following synonyms: Cerambyx decempunctatus De Geer, 1775, and Saperda salicis Zetterstedt, 1818. The synonymised species from Asia, S. balsamifera (Motshulsky, 1860), is elevated to subspecies: S. populnea balsamifera stat. n. We end with a discussion on the definition of subspecies under the unified species concept.

The extent to which each of these contributed to the hydroptilid faunas of mainland Australia,Tasmania, New Guinea, New Zealand, New Caledonia, Fiji and Vanuatu is explored by comparison of the faunal composition,geology and geography of Australia and these SW Pacific islands. Corroborative evidence is sought from othergroups, flora as well as fauna.

    Abstract [en]

    New Caledonian representation of the cosmopolitan genus Oxyethira Eaton is reviewed, with the descriptionof new species bringing to 26 the total for the genus on the island. The species are referred to threesubgenera: Trichoglene Neboiss (11 species), Pacificotrichia Kelley (13 species) and Dampfitrichia Ulmer(one species) and one species is unplaced to subgenus. A key is provided to Oxyethira species of New Caledonia.In addition, new records are given for two otherwise Australian species, Hydroptila losida Moselyand Hellyethira malleoforma Wells. Points marked on a series of small maps of New Caledonia indicate thesite or sites at which the species were collected. This final paper in a series of generic revisions brings thehydroptilid fauna of the island of New Caledonia to 60 species, distributed in six genera.

    Why are so many species based on a single specimen?2019In: Zoosymposia, ISSN 1178-9905, E-ISSN 1178-9913, Vol. 14, p. 32-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A considerable number of insect species, including Trichoptera, are described from a single specimen, also knownas a 'unique' or a 'singleton'. We ask the question of whether this reflects failure to consider variation and relatedspecies, lack of collecting effort, or true rarity. In an attempt to answer this question we examine the availableliterature and data on the Trichoptera of Tasmania and New Caledonia. We note a low level of taxonomicsynonymy among species in these faunas. Moreover, a significant proportion of species from Tasmania that werebased originally on singletons have been re-collected subsequently, but this is not true for New Caledonia. Thepossible significance of these figures is considered following examination of data on diversity and abundance ofHydroptilidae collected by regular, standardised light trapping over almost two years at a northern Australiantropical stream. We conclude that quite a large proportion of the Trichoptera species based on singletons are rare,valid species, but for others the appearance of rarity may be a consequence of inadequate collecting, particularbehavioural attributes of the species, including seasonality, and failure to consider fully the structural diversity ofrelated species. Lastly, we discuss briefly the consequences of rarity, apparent or real, on conservationmanagement.

    Locating specimens of extinct tiger (Panthera tigris) subspecies: Caspian tiger (P. t. virgata), Javan tiger (P. t. sondaica), and Balinese tiger (P. t. balica) – including previously unpublished specimens2013In: Mammal Study, ISSN 1343-4152, E-ISSN 1348-6160, Vol. 38, p. 187-198Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent advances in multivariate statistics, and in ancient DNA techniques, have greatly increased understanding of tiger phylogeography. However, regardless of advances in analytical methodology, researchers will continue to need access to specimens for morphological measurements and sampling for genetic analysis. The tiger has become increasingly endangered, and out of the nine putative tiger subspecies, three (Javan, Balinese, and Caspian) have become extinct in the last 100 years, leaving the specimens kept in natural history collections as the only materials available for research. Frustratingly little information is widely available concerning the specimens of these extinct tiger subspecies. We conducted an extensive search for specimens of extinct tiger subspecies, and also developed a simple on-site method to assign unprovenanced and probable Indonesian specimens to either Javan/Balinese or Sumatran subspecies. We located a total of 88 Javan, 11 Balinese, and 46 Caspian tigers, including seven new Javan tigers, and three Balinese tigers that were not widely known previously. These specimens are critical for research in order to understand the intraspecific phylogeny and evolutionary history of the tiger.

    Gammarinema scyllae sp. n. and Monhystrium mangrovi sp. n. (Nematoda: Monhysteridae) from land crabs from New Caledonia2022In: Systematic Parasitology, ISSN 0165-5752, E-ISSN 1573-5192, Vol. 99, no 1, p. 83-101Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Two new species of nematodes associated with crabs are described from New Caledonia. Gam-marinema scyllae sp. n. from the gill chambers of Scylla serrata (Forsskal) is characterised by 3–4 mmlong body, small outer labial and cephalic sensilla, distinct ocelli, short straight spicules and sub-cylin-drical tail. Monhystrium mangrovi sp. n. from the gill chambers and body cavity of mangrove crab Neosar-matium sp. is characterised by 1–1.4 mm long body; outer labial sensilla longer than cephalic sensilla,amphid located at level with posterior stoma chamber,denticles in posterior stoma chamber and five pairs ofgenital papilla on tail. Phylogenetic relationships oftwo new species and other nematodes from the familyMonhysteridae are analysed based on 18S and partial28S rDNA sequences.

    Morphological and molecular characterization of Encotyllabe vallei Monticelli, 1907 (Monopisthocotylea, Monogenea) from the gilthead seabream Sparus aurata Linnaeus (Teleostei, Sparidae) from the southwestern Mediterranean and notes on host specificity of the genus Encotyllabe Diesing, 18502023In: Journal of Helminthology, ISSN 0022-149X, E-ISSN 1475-2697, Vol. 97, p. 1-15, article id e82Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Incomplete original descriptions, the unavailability or poor conditions of specimens and the lack of detailed redescriptions have caused the validity of several species of the genus Encotyllabe Diesing, 1850 to be questioned. To date, seven of the recognized species were described upon one or two specimens, hindering study of intraspecific variations. This was made worse by considering few morphoanatomical differences sufficient to erect new species. Among Encotyllabe spp. occurring in Mediterranean waters, E. vallei was first described from the gilt-head bream Sparus aurata (Sparidae) off Italy. Although beautifully illustrated for a paper from that century, morphometric data for E. vallei from the type-host S. aurata remain unavailable. Previous records of E. vallei provided either morphometrical or molecular data, and its validity was questioned. We provide a redescription of E. vallei based on newly collected specimens from the S. aurata from the southwestern Mediterranean (off Algeria) using integrative taxonomy. Analysis of cox1 sequences of E. vallei from S. aurata, compared to sequences from other sparid hosts, mainly Pagellus bogaraveo, revealed a divergence not exceeding 2%, suggesting a stenoxenic specificity for this monogenean. Given that P. bogaraveo is the type-host for Encotyllabe pagelli, we were tempted to suggest a synonymy between E. vallei and E. pagelli. We refrained from doing so because E. pagelli was first described from the Atlantic coast off Brest, France. Morphological data for Encotyllabe from P. bogaraveo are warranted assessing the host specificity of E. vallei and whether there might be a species complex within individual sparid fish species.

    Molecular phylogeny and biogeography of the aquatic dance fly subfamily Clinocerinae (Diptera: Empididae)2024In: Systematic Entomology, ISSN 0307-6970, E-ISSN 1365-3113Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study presents the first molecular phylogenetic analysis of the Clinocerinae, challenging the traditionally accepted monophyly of this subfamily. DNA was extracted from fresh and museum specimens representing all biogeographical regions. Maximum likelihood (ML) and Bayesian inference (BI) phylogenetic analyses were performed based on sequences from two mitochondrial genes, cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) and cytochrome β, and three nuclear genes, carbomoylphosphate synthase domain of rudimentary, elongation factor-1α and isocitrate dehydrogenase. Through molecular data and morphological examination, our results reveal a division within Clinocerinae, distinguishing ‘typical’ or Clinocerinae (s.s.) from several genera, specifically Afroclinocera Sinclair, Asymphyloptera Collin and Proagomyia Collin, possibly lending support for a reclassification of these genera outside Clinocerinae. Bergenstammia Mik is proposed as a junior synonym of Phaeobalia Mik, syn. n., and the following new combinations are recognized: Phaeobalia albanica (Wagner) comb. n., Phaeobalia aurinae (Pusch & Wagner) comb. n., Phaeobalia carniolica (Horvat) comb. n., Phaeobalia frigida (Vaillant) comb. n., Phaeobalia glacialis (Palaczyk & Słowińska) comb. n., Phaeobalia multiseta (Strobl) comb. n., Phaeobalia nudimana (Vaillant) comb. n., Phaeobalia nudipes (Loew) comb. n., Phaeobalia pulla (Vaillant & Wagner) comb. n., Phaeobalia pyrenaica (Vaillant & Vinçon) comb. n., Phaeobalia slovaca (Wagner) comb. n. and Phaeobalia thomasi (Vaillant & Vinçon) comb. n. Re-evaluation of the genus Roederiodes resulted in the following new combinations: Clinocerella macedonicus (Wagner & Horvat) comb. n. and Clinocerella montenegrinus (Wagner & Horvat) comb. n. The origins of Clinocerinae (s.s.) are traced back to the Holarctic region, Laurasian origin, with a likely complex history of dispersal events into the Southern Hemisphere. Based on current knowledge, the greatest generic and species richness is confined to the Palaearctic Region. These findings provide valuable insights into the evolutionary relationships and distribution patterns of Clinocerinae (s.s.), challenging existing taxonomic classifications and shedding light on their historical biogeography.

    Review and phylogeny of the New Zealand hagfishes (Myxiniformes: Myxinidae), with a description of three new species2015In: Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society, ISSN 0024-4082, E-ISSN 1096-3642, Vol. 174, no 2, p. 363-393Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Hagfishes from New Zealand are reviewed and a phylogeny proposed using morphological and genetic data (DNA sequences of cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene, COI, and the small subunit RNA, 16S). Eptatretus cryptus sp. nov. was previously confused with Eptatretus cirrhatus (Forster in Bloch & Schneider, 1801) because of their similar morphology, and is found from the Three Kings Islands to Stewart Island and in the eastern part of the Chatham Rise (at depths of 96–922 m). Eptatretus poicilus sp. nov. is endemic to the Three Kings Islands, where it is common and associated with soft sediment and deep-sea coral-sponge habitats (114–842 m). Neomyxine caesiovitta sp. nov. is a slender hagfish found along the east coast of the North Island south to the Chatham Rise (430–1083 m). A neotype is erected for E. cirrhatus (type locality: Breaksea Sound, Fiordland), occurring widely in New Zealand coastal, shelf, and slope waters (1–922 m), but not at the Three Kings Islands. Eptatetrus goliath Mincarone & Stewart, 2006, Neomyxine biniplicata (Richardson & Jowett, 1951), and Nemamyxine elongata Richardson, 1958 are further described using additional material. Rubicundus eos (Fernholm, 1991) is still only known from the holotype (type locality: Challenger Plateau). Genetic results showed that the New Zealand Eptatretus species form a monophyletic group within the subfamily Eptatretinae, indicating likely speciation from a single common ancestor within the area. Eptatretus poicilus sp. nov. is the sister species of E. cirrhatus, and E. cryptus sp. nov. is closely associated with the clade formed by these two species. Eptatretus goliath is most closely associated with Eptatretus minor Fernholm & Hubbs, 1981 (Gulf of Mexico), these two species basally diverging within New Zealand hagfishes. The endemic genus Neomyxine forms a well-supported monophyletic group of as yet uncertain position within the phylogenetic tree. A key to the New Zealand hagfishes, fresh colour photographs, distribution maps, and in situ video recordings are presented
