    In spite of the two-fold reproductive advantage, asexual reproduction is not common in nature, probably due to the associated genetic deterioration or reduced genetic variation. To understand how genetic diversity is maintained in existing asexual populations, we investigated the genetic diversity and population structure of sympatric sexual and asexual populations of a parasitic wasp, Meteorus pulchricornis, using 614 genome-wide single nucleotide polymorphisms. The genetic structures of the apomictic asexual populations were distinct, showing considerable genetic differentiation among them. Most of the asexual populations were highly differentiated from the sympatric sexual population; some asexual individuals could not be distinguished from members of the sexual population. Furthermore, significantly fewer multilocus genotypes were identified in the asexual populations (1-7) compared to the sexual population (42), which is consistent with their apomictic nature. The observed patterns of fixed heterozygous sites suggest that most asexual populations had the same evolutionary origin and have long since evolved individually; the detected gene flow between the sexual population and a few asexual population may indicate independent origins of asexuality. The potential role of occasional males in apomictic wasps is also discussed.

  • Integrative taxonomy and analysis of species richness patterns of nocturnal Darwin wasps of the genus Enicospilus Stephens (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae, Ophioninae) in Japan

    So Shimizu, Gavin R. Broad, Kaoru Maeto

    The predominantly tropical ophionine genus Enicospilus Stephens, 1835 is one of the largest genera of Darwin wasps (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae), with more than 700 extant species worldwide that are usually crepuscular or nocturnal and are parasitoids of Lepidoptera larvae. In the present study, the Japanese species of Enicospilus are revised using an integrative approach (combined morphology and DNA barcoding). On the basis of 3,110 specimens, 47 Enicospilus species are recognised in Japan, eight of which are new species (E. acutus Shimizu, sp. nov., E. kunigamiensis Shimizu, sp. nov., E. limnophilus Shimizu, sp. nov., E. matsumurai Shimizu, sp. nov., E. pseudopuncticulatus Shimizu, sp. nov., E. sharkeyi Shimizu, sp. nov., E. takakuwai Shimizu, sp. nov., and E. unctus Shimizu, sp. nov.), seven are new records from Japan (E. jilinensis Tang, 1990, E. laqueatus (Enderlein, 1921), E. multidens Chiu, 1954, stat. rev., E. puncticulatus Tang, 1990, E. stenophleps Cushman, 1937, E. vestigator (Smith, 1858), and E. zeugos Chiu, 1954, stat. rev.), 32 had already been recorded in Japan; three (E. biharensis Townes, Townes & Gupta, 1961, E.flavicaput (Morley, 1912), and E. merdarius (Gravenhorst, 1829)) have been erroneously recorded from Japan based on misidentifications, and four names that were previously on the Japanese list are deleted through synonymy. The following taxonomic changes are proposed: E. vacuus Gauld & Mitchell, 1981, syn. nov. (= E. formosensis (Uchida, 1928)); E. multidens stat. rev.; E. striatus Cameron, 1899, syn. nov. = E. lineolatus (Roman, 1913), syn. nov. = E. uniformis Chiu, 1954, syn. nov. = E. flatus Chiu, 1954, syn. nov. = E. gussakovskii Viktorov, 1957, syn. nov. = E. striolatus Townes, Townes & Gupta, 1961, syn. nov. = E. unicornis Rao & Nikam, 1969, syn. nov. = E. unicornis Rao & Nikam, 1970, syn. nov. (= E. pungens (Smith, 1874)); E. iracundus Chiu, 1954, syn. nov. (= E. sakaguchii (Matsumura & Uchida, 1926)); E. sigmatoides Chiu, 1954, syn. nov. (= E. shikokuensis (Uchida, 1928)); E. yamanakai (Uchida, 1930), syn. nov. (= E. shinkanus (Uchida, 1928)); E. ranunculus Chiu, 1954, syn. nov. (= E. yezoensis (Uchida, 1928)); and E. zeugos stat. rev. = E. henrytownesi Chao & Tang, 1991, syn. nov. In addition, the following new regional and country records are also provided: E. flavocephalus (Kirby, 1900), E. puncticulatus, and E. vestigator from the Eastern Palaearctic region, E. laqueatus from the Eastern Palaearctic and Oceanic regions, and E. maruyamanus (Uchida, 1928) from the Oriental region; E. abdominalis (Szepligeti, 1906) from Nepal, E. flavocephalus from Laos, E. formosensis from Laos and Malaysia, E. insinuator (Smith, 1860) from Taiwan, E. maruyamanus from India and Philippines, E. nigronotatus Cameron, 1903, E. riukiuensis (Matsumura & Uchida, 1926), and E. sakaguchii from Indonesia, E.pungens from 14 countries (Australia, Bhutan, Brunei, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Nepal, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Solomon Islands, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan, and Taiwan), and E. yezoensis from South Korea. An identification key to all Japanese species of Enicospilus is proposed. Although 47 species are recognised in the present study, approximately 55 species could potentially be found in Japan based on ACE and Chao 1 estimators. The latitudinal diversity gradient of Enicospilus species richness is also tested in the Japanese archipelago based on the constructed robust taxonomic framework and extensive samples. Enicospilus species richness significantly increases towards the south, contrary to the 'anomalous' pattern of some other ichneumonid subfamilies.

    A new species of Microgastrinae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) parasitoid wasp, Microgaster godzilla Fernandez-Triana & Kamino, is described from Japan. From a biological and morphological perspective this is a very unusual species. It represents only the third known microgastrine to be aquatic, and the first one to be found entering the water. The female wasp searches for its hosts, aquatic larvae of Elophila turbata (Lepidoptera: Crambidae), mostly by walking over floating plants, but occasionally diving underwater for several seconds to force the larva out of its case, when it is quickly parasitized (parasitization was always observed above water). The unique searching behaviour of M. godzilla as well as its parasitization of aquatic larvae was filmed and it is presented here. The wasp has simple tarsal claws, which are elongate and strongly curved, similar to those found in the related genus Hygroplitis; they seem to represent an adaptation for gripping to the substrate when entering the water. The new species is described based on morphological, molecular (DNA barcoding), biological and ethological data. Additionally, we provide detailed diagnoses to recognize M. godzilla from all other described species of Microgaster and Hygroplitis in the Palearctic, Nearctic and Oriental regions.

    We report the solitary parasitism by Colastomion formosanum (Watanabe) (Hymenoptera, Braconidae, Rogadinae) on the larva of Nevrina procopia (Stoll) (Lepidoptera, Crambidae) feeding on Turpinia ternata Nakai (Staphyleaceae) in Amami Ôshima Is., Japan. This is the first host record for the genus Colastomion Baker outside of Papua New Guinea. We have also inferred the phylogenetic relationships of Colastomion species using Bayesian and maximum likelihood approaches, based on the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase 1 gene. The results indicate two major clades–solitary and gregarious parasitoids–within Colastomion. Colastomion formosanum belongs to the clade of solitary parasitoids that specifically parasitize the crambid subfamily Spilomelinae. Plant-host-parasitoid associations and the evolutionary scenario of the host use of Colastomion are discussed.

    Sympetrum pedemontanum is regionally endangered or extinct in several countries despite having a wide distribution across the Eurasian continent and its neighboring islands. Its subspecies S. p. elatum in Japan has been decreasing rapidly with the loss of larval habitat in rural areas since the 1970s. Previous studies have detailed habitat use by larvae and mature adults, but information on grass and water preferences during oviposition is still lacking. In this study, we tracked adults as they performed reproductive behaviors and documented the grass height and water conditions preferred for oviposition in a lowland, mid-slope river in Japan. Our results showed that females dipped their abdomens significantly more into stagnant than into flowing water for oviposition and that short surrounding grass and shallow water enhanced oviposition behavior. These findings emphasize the importance of riparian grass management and water flow regulation for the conservation of S. p. elatum.

    Recent developments in, and widespread availability of, platforms, technologies, and computer software and hardware have enhanced the use of genetic markers to address major scientific questions in non-model organisms, even by researchers with limited expertise in genomics. However, there are few studies investigating the genomes of non-model insects using these approaches. This review discusses the application of next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies to the study of genomes of wild organisms. We first introduce currently available NGS-based methods—including restriction site-associated DNA sequencing multiplexed inter-simple sequence repeat genotyping by sequencing target capture and amplicon, transcriptome, and whole genome sequencing—as useful tools for studies of non-model insects. We also provide guidelines for first-time users of NGS systems. In addition to the massive amount of information that it provides, a major advantage of NGS data is the scalability to future research projects. Studies using NGS technology can answer questions related to basic entomology by focusing on the unique nature of non-model insects in wild environments in a way that is not possible for model organisms.

    Accurate egg placement into or onto a living host is an essential ability for many parasitoids, and changes in associated phenotypes, such as ovipositor morphology and behaviour, correlate with significant host shifts. Here, we report that in the ichneumonid group of koinobiont spider-ectoparasitoids ("polysphinctines"), several putatively ancestral taxa (clade I here), parasitic on ground-dwelling RTA-spiders (a group characterised by retrolateral tibial apophysis on male palpal tibiae), lay their eggs in a specific way. They tightly bend their metasoma above the spider's cephalothorax, touching the carapace with the dorsal side of the ovipositor apically ("dorsal-press"). The egg slips out from the middle part of the ventral side of the ovipositor and moves towards its apex with the parted lower valves acting as rails. Deposition occurs as the parasitoid draws the ovipositor backwards from under the egg. Oviposition upon the tough carapace of the cephalothorax, presumably less palatable than the abdomen, is conserved in these taxa, and presumed adaptive through avoiding physical damage to the developing parasitoid. This specific way of oviposition is reversed in the putatively derived clade of polysphinctines (clade II here) parasitic on Araneoidea spiders with aerial webs, which is already known. They bend their metasoma along the spider's abdomen, grasping the abdomen with their fore/mid legs, pressing the ventral tip of the metasoma and the lower valves of the ovipositor against the abdomen ("ventral-press"). The egg is expelled through an expansion of the lower valves, which is developed only in this clade and evident in most species, onto the softer and presumably more nutritious abdomen.

    The eastern hive bee Apis cerana is a major honeybee species in Asia providing numerous ecosystem services. Understanding how much the honeybees depend on natural and human-influenced plants and landscapes in different climates is important could contribute to evaluate how wild honeybees use food resources and to measure the ecosystem services. We investigated the effects of land use and climate changes on stable nitrogen and carbon isotope ratios in wild populations of A. cerana. In populations from 139 individual sites throughout Japan, we measured nitrogen (delta N-15) and carbon (delta C-13) stable isotope ratios and analyzed the effects of land use and climate. Our results showed that forested areas and annual precipitation had significant effects on delta N-15, and that paddy fields and urban areas had significant effects on delta C-13. These results suggest that A. cerana sensibly uses available food resources in the various environments and that stable nitrogen and carbon isotope ratios clearly reflect the effects of land use and climate changes on the populations of A. cerana. Thus, stable nitrogen and carbon isotope ratios in A. cerana, which widely distributes in Asia, can be used as indicators of the environments, such as land use and climate, of an area within its foraging range.

    Sympetrum pedemontanum (Muller in Allioni) (Odonata: Libellulidae) is widely distributed across the Eurasian continent and its neighboring islands. However, the populations of its subspecies S. pedemontanum elatum (Selys) in Japan have been rapidly decreasing with the loss of habitats in rural and suburban areas since the 1970s. For the conservation of this subspecies, which is now listed as endangered in many prefectures, it is important to understand the habitat preferences of the adults. Previous studies indicate that adult males of this species tend to fly on the flat surface of rice paddy fields. Thus, we hypothesized that they preferred short and flat grass. Field experiments in the Sakasegawa River, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, showed that adult S. p. elatum significantly preferred the trimmed grass of Phragmites japonicus to untreated shaggy grass, regardless of sex. Our results indicate the importance of grass management for the conservation of this species, not only in and around paddy fields but also in fluvial habitats, which are abundant in Japan.

    Ten Japanese species of the genus Spilopteron Townes, 1965 are recognized. Five new species, S. albiventre sp. nov., S. brachyurum sp. nov., S. nigrum sp. nov., S. oblongulum sp. nov. and S. pseudonigrum sp. nov., are described from Japan. Morphological discrimination between most Japanese species is confirmed by sequence analysis of the mitochondrial COI gene, which indicates the following relationships: S. oblongulum sp. nov. + S. apicale (Matsumura, 1912), S. brachyurum sp. nov. + S. nigrum sp. nov. + S. pseudonigrum sp. nov., and S. tosaense (Uchida, 1934) + S. luteum (Uchida, 1930). A key to the Japanese species of Spilopteron is provided. This genus seems to have its center of diversity in the mid-latitude area of East Asia.

    Although it is important to identify species of pest and natural enemy insects in agriculture, morphological identification alone is often difficult. Because a combination of morphological identification and DNA barcoding is very important for identifying indiscriminable species, there is a need to develop non-destructive DNA extraction methods. Here, we compared three general methods of DNA extraction-the Chelex method, PrepMan(A (R)) Ultra Reagent, and DNeasy(A (R)) Blood and Tissue Kit-in the search for a rapid, simple, and non-destructive method of DNA extraction from pest and natural enemy specimens. Amplification of PCR production was achieved with the Chelex method and the DNeasy(A (R)) Blood and Tissue Kit. However, not all specimens tested by the PrepMan(A (R)) Ultra Reagent method yielded amplification products. Observation of the morphological features of dried Encarsia formosa specimens revealed that all heads and leg segments remained intact after DNA extraction by each of the three methods. Almost all samples treated with the PrepMan(A (R)) Ultra Reagent method had large, discernible morphological changes, in particular, of the antennae and forewings, which are important features for identifying minute wasps. In contrast, the antennae and forewings of specimens on which we used the Chelex method suffered little damage. Use of the DNeasy(A (R)) Blood and Tissue Kit method did not alter the forewing features, but strong wrinkles appeared in the antennae. We discuss the DNA extraction techniques from the perspective of these results.

    The PREDICTS project-Projecting Responses of Ecological Diversity In Changing Terrestrial Systems (www.predicts.org.uk)-has collated from published studies a large, reasonably representative database of comparable samples of biodiversity from multiple sites that differ in the nature or intensity of human impacts relating to land use. We have used this evidence base to develop global and regional statistical models of how local biodiversity responds to these measures. We describe and make freely available this 2016 release of the database, containing more than 3.2 million records sampled at over 26,000 locations and representing over 47,000 species. We outline how the database can help in answering a range of questions in ecology and conservation biology. To our knowledge, this is the largest and most geographically and taxonomically representative database of spatial comparisons of biodiversity that has been collated to date; it will be useful to researchers and international efforts wishing to model and understand the global status of biodiversity.

    Declines in honeybee populations have been a recent concern. Although causes of the declines remain unclear, environmental factors may be responsible. We focused on the potential environmental determinants of local populations of wild honeybees, Apis cerana japonica, in Japan. This subspecies has little genetic variation in terms of its mitochondrial DNA sequences, and genetic variations at nuclear loci are as yet unknown. We estimated the genetic structure and environmental determinants of local genetic diversity in nuclear microsatellite genotypes of fathers and mothers, inferred from workers collected at 139 sites. The genotypes of fathers and mothers showed weak isolation by distance and negligible genetic structure. The local genetic diversity was high in central Japan, decreasing toward the peripheries, and depended on the climate and land use characteristics of the sites. The local genetic diversity decreased as the annual precipitation increased, and increased as the proportion of urban and paddy field areas increased. Positive effects of natural forest area, which have also been observed in terms of forager abundance in farms, were not detected with respect to the local genetic diversity. The findings suggest that A. cerana japonica forms a single population connected by gene flow in its main distributional range, and that climate and landscape properties potentially affect its local genetic diversity.

    The shining fungus beetle, Scaphidium amamiense Hoshina & Morimoto, 1999 is synonymized with S. morimotoi Lobl, 1982, based on a review of morphological characters and molecular analysis. This species is endemic to the Amami Islands, the Ryukyus, Japan. An almost completely melanic form morimotoi in strict) is known only on the island Yoroshima, where the ordinary form with reddish fasciae on the elytra previously called amamiense) is absent. The present study suggests that the melanic form on the small island has been fixed by random genetic drift.

Two of them were identified as L. maculipennis (Cameron, 1905) and L. radiatus (Uchida, 1956), both of which had been previously recorded in Taiwan; we redescribe them based on Taiwanese specimens. We describe a single new species as L. giganteus Shimizu & Watanabe, sp. nov. The phenology and distribution of the species are briefly discussed. A key to the Taiwanese species of Leptophion and additional couplets to the key proposed by Gauld & Mitchell (1981) are also provided.

    Sympetrum pedemontanum (Muller in Allioni) (Odonata: Libellulidae), which is distributed widely in the Eurasian continent and its neighboring islands, is listed as a Least Concern species in the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List (2015). In Japan, however, the population of its subspecies S. pedemontanum elatum (Selys) has been rapidly decreasing since the 1970s. In order to conserve this subspecies, it is important to understand the seasonal microhabitat use by its larvae. However, this has been a difficult task because larvae of S. pedemontanum elatum often coexist with those of a common congener, S. eroticum (Selys), and cannot be morphologically distinguished from the latter. Thus, in this study, we first established a molecular technique based on the polymerase chain reaction to accurately identify each species. In the subsequent field survey in 2015 with its application in the Sakasegawa River, Hyogo Prefecture, we found that S. pedemontanum elatum larvae hatch in stagnant water and subsequently advance into weakly flowing water. Our results indicated a change in the microhabitats during the larval developmental process, reflecting the need for a continuous spectrum of stagnant, transitional, and flowing water. Such aquatic environments with a spectrum of water conditions are disappearing in Satoyama, a rural farming area in Japan. This has endangered species such as S. pedemontanum elatum and Oryzias latipes (Beloniformes: Adrianichthyidae) by depriving them of their favorable habitats. For their conservation, it is necessary to develop methods to recover the traditional aquatic environments in Satoyama.

    We reared six idiobiont braconids, Bracon asphondyliae, B.sunosei, B.tamabae, Simplicibracon curticaudis, Testudobracon longicaudis and T.pleuralis from 22 identified species and 11 unidentified segregates of Asphondyliini (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) in Japan. A total of 22 cecidomyiid species and segregates were newly recorded as hosts of the braconids. Analysis of cytochrome oxidase subunitI (COI) did not show any evidence of host races among the braconids. Bracon sunosei, which was synonymized with B. asphondyliae, is restored to a valid species. The host range of the braconid species seemed to be related to the lineage of host genera within Asphondyliini.

    The braconid parasitoid wasp that attacks exposed lepidopteran larvae, Meteorus pulchricornis (Wesmael), is a common natural enemy of pest caterpillars and may serve as a biological control agent. Recently spreading nighttime lighting for the control of noctuid moths may affect the behavior of the parasitoid if it is nocturnal, but little is known about its daily activity patterns. This study investigated the locomotor activity of M. pulchricornis under various light conditions. Over a daily 16-h light:8-h dim light cycle (16L8Dim), the wasps were inactive during most of the photophase (16L), gradually becoming active late in the photophase, with activity levels peaking just after the switch to the scotophase (8Dim). Subsequently, during the scotophase, activity decreased to a moderate level and continued at that level until the switch to the photophase. In addition, after transfer from daily light/dim light cycles (16L8Dim), daily fluctuations in activity persisted for at least 1 day under continuous light or dim light conditions. This is the first report describing the nocturnal activity rhythm of parasitoid wasps and the suppression of their activity under strong light conditions.

    The delimitation of two ichneumonid species, Spilopteron apicale (Matsumura) and S. tosaense (Uchida), was investigated using DNA sequences of the mitochondrial COI and nuclear 28S rRNA genes, as well as adult morphology. The two species have long been confused and were until recently speculated to be the same species with continuous colour variation. Our molecular and morphological studies reveal that there are two distinct species: a dark species confined to northern or high latitude localities (S. apicale) and a widely distributed species with a marked geographical gradient in body colour (S. tosaense) across the Japanese Archipelago. In the latter species, female body colour became significantly darker with latitude and altitude. A lectotype of Chorischizus apicalis Matsumura, 1912 is designated.

    Biodiversity continues to decline in the face of increasing anthropogenic pressures such as habitat destruction, exploitation, pollution and introduction of alien species. Existing global databases of species' threat status or population time series are dominated by charismatic species. The collation of datasets with broad taxonomic and biogeographic extents, and that support computation of a range of biodiversity indicators, is necessary to enable better understanding of historical declines and to project - and avert - future declines. We describe and assess a new database of more than 1.6 million samples from 78 countries representing over 28,000 species, collated from existing spatial comparisons of local-scale biodiversity exposed to different intensities and types of anthropogenic pressures, from terrestrial sites around the world. The database contains measurements taken in 208 (of 814) ecoregions, 13 (of 14) biomes, 25 (of 35) biodiversity hotspots and 16 (of 17) megadiverse countries. The database contains more than 1% of the total number of all species described, and more than 1% of the described species within many taxonomic groups - including flowering plants, gymnosperms, birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, beetles, lepidopterans and hymenopterans. The dataset, which is still being added to, is therefore already considerably larger and more representative than those used by previous quantitative models of biodiversity trends and responses. The database is being assembled as part of the PREDICTS project (Projecting Responses of Ecological Diversity In Changing Terrestrial Systems - ). We make site-level summary data available alongside this article. The full database will be publicly available in 2015.

    Agricultural landscapes generally include not only crop fields but also semi-natural habitats. In Japan, such a mixed rural landscape is called "satoyama." Although ground beetles are potential predators of pests, the environmental factors that determine their distribution in Japanese rural landscapes have not been fully elucidated. To understand the effects of distance from woodland edges, soil moisture, and weed height on assemblages of carabid beetles, we examined the number of adult beetles in pitfall traps placed in a satoyama landscape in the lowlands of western Honshu, Japan. Our results show that the carabid species could be largely differentiated into woodland, intermediate, and open-land species. The "intermediate species" group includes species that depend on woodland or woodland edges for at least part of their life cycles. Paddy fields must have long provided semi-natural habitats that complement those in natural grasslands and wetlands for open-land beetles that prefer wet conditions. Weeds can also increase the abundance of some intermediate and woodland species; thus, the arrangement of such landscape elements as woodlands and paddies can determine the species richness and abundance of ground beetles in agricultural fields.

    Although apomixis is the most common form of parthenogenesis in diplodiploid arthropods, it is uncommon in the haplodiploid insect order Hymenoptera. We found a new type of spontaneous apomixis in the Hymenoptera, completely lacking meiosis and the expulsion of polar bodies in egg maturation division, on the thelytokous strain of a parasitoid wasp Meteorus pulchricornis (Wesmael) (Braconidae, Euphorinae) on pest lepidopteran larvae Spodoptera litura (Fabricius) (Noctuidae). The absence of the meiotic process was consistent with a non-segregation pattern in the offspring of heterozygous females, and no positive evidence was obtained for the induction of thelytoky by any bacterial symbionts. We discuss the conditions that enable the occurrence of such rare cases of apomictic thelytoky in the Hymenoptera, suggesting the significance of fixed heterosis caused by hybridization or polyploidization, symbiosis with bacterial agents, and occasional sex. Our finding will encourage further genetic studies on parasitoid wasps to use asexual lines more wisely for biological control.

    The Japanese species of subgenus Conoblasta Forster 1869 sensu Aubert (1978) and Kuslitzky (1974, 2007) of the genus Glypta Gravenhorst 1829 are reviewed. No reliable synapomorphies are found for the species of Conoblasta after all and thus we conclude that they should be treated as a tentative species group. Eighteen species of the Conoblasta species group, including 11 new species (G. cognata sp. nov., G. daisetsuzana sp. nov., G. densepunctata sp. nov., G. flavitarsus sp. nov., G. ichitai sp. nov., G. karasawensis sp. nov., G. nipponica sp. nov., G. shigaensis sp. nov., G. suwai sp. nov., G. touyaensis sp. nov., G. zenibakoensis sp. nov.) and two newly recorded species (G. chinensis (Uchida 1956) and G. extincta Ratzeberg 1852), are recognized from Japan. A key to the Japanese species is provided.

    The biological control of pest insects in farmlands is an important ecosystem service provided by natural enemies, a tenet that is frequently supported by natural ecosystems; however, natural ecosystems can sometimes serve as a source of pests and can maintain them as an ecosystem disservice. We examined the effects of the surrounding seminatural and natural matrix on aphid presence and aphid predator abundance in buckwheat fields. We specifically aimed to detect whether the seminatural and natural matrix causes a trade-off between pest and natural enemy abundances. We established buckwheat study fields in a region of central Japan, the landscape of which is quite complex. Our results showed that aphid presence was not affected by either the abundance of ladybirds and lacewings or the area of the surrounding seminatural and natural matrix. We also found that the abundance of ladybirds, but not of lacewings, was significantly affected by the area of the seminatural and natural matrix. These findings suggest that in a complex landscape, as the area of seminatural and natural lands increases, some assemblages of natural enemies could also increase, but their biological control services would have little effect or would be compensated for by larger pest migration, leading to no net difference in pest damage.

  • Causes of polymorphic melanism and its thermoregulatory function in a parasitoid wasp Meteorus pulchricornis (Hymenoptera: Braconidae)

    Yosuke Abe, Takuma Nishimura, Kaoru Maeto

    We investigated the variation in body colour and its thermoregulatory function in Meteorus pulchricornis (Wesmael) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), a parasitoid wasp of Spodoptera and other free-living lepidopteran larvae. We show that the body colour of adult wasps darkens when cocoons are kept at low temperatures. The range in the variation in colour, however, differs for different parts of the body and among uniparental (thelytokous) strains. This melanism enables these wasps to attain a body temperature in sunshine up to 2 degrees C. Moreover, this small gain in body temperature can markedly increase the flight activity of wasps at low ambient temperatures. We conclude that the variation in body colour that resulted from rearing the cocoons at different temperatures enable the wasps to adapt to changing thermal environments. The ecological significance of the difference in the degree of melanism of the different strains is discussed.

    In order to understand the effects of line thinning on forest biota, we compared ant community structure between the line thinned and an adjacent control stand in two Japanese cedar plantations in Hyogo Prefecture. The stand, which was heavily thinned 11 years ago, tended to have more woodland specialists and less habitat generalists compared with the control plot. In the stand, which was lightly thinned four years ago, the opposite trend was observed. The effect of environmental factors on ant species composition was not clear, but there were some effects of the amount of incident light to the forest floor and the biomass of understory vegetation. Our results indicate that more investigation is needed in order to use ant species composition as an indicator of the degree of disturbance and subsequent recovery of forest biota after forest management practices.

    We explored the variable adult emergence in summer generations of a multivoltine sawfly [Arge nigrinodosa (Argidae)], larvae of which feed gregariously on the foliage of Rosa spp. (Rosaceae), and its ecological significance. The sawfly showed a trimodal adult emergence under long-day conditions in the laboratory. Following the first and largest cluster of emergence, a small tail of slightly delayed emergence was observed, which most likely was heritable. The third cluster of emergence after nonheritable partial diapause in prepupae seemed to match the synchronous emergence of a portion of adults in September under field conditions, probably as a risk-spreading (i.e., bet-hedging) strategy to cope with food shortage during unpredictable periods of drought in summer.

    In terrestrial ecosystems, ecological processes and patterns within focal patches frequently depend on their matrix. Crop fields (focal patches) are often surrounded by a mosaic of other land-use types (matrix), which may act as habitats for organisms and differ in terms of the immigration activities of organisms to the fields. We examined whether matrix quality affects wild pollinator abundance in crop fields, given that the species (Apis cerana) generally nest in the cavities of natural trees. We examined fields of a pollination-dependent crop surrounded by plantations and natural forests, which comprised the matrix. Our analysis revealed a clear positive effect of the natural forest on the pollinator abundance, but the plantation forest had little effects. These indicate that agricultural patches are influenced by their matrix quality and the resulting crop pollinator abundance, suggesting the importance of matrix management initiatives such as forest restoration surrounding agricultural fields to improve crop production.

    1. To infer the effects of forest aging on the abundance, genus richness and diversity, and genus composition of understorey parasitoids, we investigated the assemblages of braconids collected in Malaise traps in a chronosequence of secondary broad-leaved forests (4-128 years old) in the satoyama landscape in the cool-temperate region of central Honshu, Japan. 2. Multivariate linear regression analysis indicated that the abundance of braconid parasitoids was affected by forest age (time since clear-cutting) in the secondary broad-leaved forests, although the effects on genus richness and diversity were not statistically supported. 3. The abundance of herbivore parasitoids decreased significantly with forest age. This is probably caused by the decline of insect herbivores associated with the decrease in forest floor vegetation along the chronosequence. 4. The opposite trend was observed for detritivore parasitoids, which significantly increased in abundance with forest age, probably along with forest floor litter mass, though no significant change in the abundance of wood-borer parasitoids was observed with forest age. 5. Genus composition of braconid parasitoids was affected by forest age, as determined by canonical correspondence analysis. Genera of detritivore parasitoids were mostly confined to older plots, those of herbivore parasitoids were rather abundant in younger plots, and those of wood-borer parasitoids were more broadly distributed. 6. Therefore, we conclude that the presence of mixed forest stands of various age classes at the landscape level would contribute to the conservation of diverse assemblages of host insects and their parasitoids.

    We investigated the seasonal changes in the abundance of coleopteran and hymenopteran functional groups to evaluate the ecological suitability of line thinning in overstocked Japanese cedar plantations in central Japan. In line thinning, 3- to 5-m-wide sections of the stand are harvested parallel to the mountain slope and perpendicular to the forest roads. The thinning intensity varies from 25 to 35% of the total number of trees. We compared the seasonal abundance between the thinned stand and the unthinned (control) stand in two plantation forests: a low-elevation Sugi site (4 years since thinning) and a high-elevation Kuchiotani site (6 years since thinning). Most coleopteran and hymenopteran functional groups were consistently more abundant in the thinned stand than in the unthinned stand. The differences in arthropod abundance between the thinned and unthinned stands were mainly caused by marked differences in the abundance of seasonally strongly changing functional groups during their peak seasons. The predators and parasitoids of insects as well as the plant and pollen feeders (plant-dependent functional groups) responded to seasonal changes in the vegetation (food and microhabitats) and microclimate. The ants were less affected by line thinning. Our results indicate that line thinning is an ecologically suitable silvicultural treatment for the improvement of biodiversity conditions in the overstocked plantation forests.

    Crop pollination is an essential ecosystem service, which, when provided by wild pollinator species, can be negatively affected by human activities at a landscape scale. Various pollinator species can be affected by landscape factors and/or act at different spatial scales. We investigated whether different landscape factors at different spatial scales are correlated with pollinator abundances and pollination success. We examined common buckwheat, which is a self-incompatible crop species, pollinated by managed honeybees, native honeybees, and wild non-honeybee insects. To determine the effects of landscape factors at different spatial scales, we sampled flower-visiting insects and recorded seed sets. Results from the sampled flower visitors indicated that the abundances of managed honeybees, native honeybees, and wild non-honeybee insects were significantly related to the distance of managed hives, the area of forest cover within a 3-km radius, and the area of forest and grassland cover within a 100-m radius, respectively. Additionally, the latter two influential factors of the landscape, but not the distance of managed hives, showed significant positive correlations with the seed set. These results suggest that considering landscape factors at different spatial scales associated with the characteristics of managed and wild pollinators would help to ensure crop yields.

    We investigated pre-dispersal seed predation by insects in a bayberry Myrica rubra Sieb. et Zucc. (Myricaceae) on Yakushima Island, Japan. To clarify the patterns of seed fate and predation, all fruit that fell into seed traps were collected to allow any insect larvae within the fruit to emerge, and the fruit were finally dissected to determine whether or not they had been attacked by insect predators. Two lepidopteran species, Thiotricha pancratiastis (Meyrick) (Gelechiidae) and Neoblastobasis spiniharpella Kuznetzov & Sinev (Blastobasidae), emerged from the fruits. Thiotricha pancratiastis is the major seed predator of M. rubra, attacking the fruits intensively during the primary stage of fruit development. Thiotricha pancratiastis had been known as a foliage feeder (leaf miner) of M. rubra, but we revealed that the insect is also an important seed predator of the bayberry.

    We suggest a new mechanism for the avoidance of self-superparasitism by a solitary endoparasitoid of free-living hosts. Meteorus pulchricornis (Wesmael) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) is a solitary larval endoparasitoid of a wide range of Lepidoptera. First, we tested the tendency to avoid multiple oviposition on Spodoptera litura (Fabricius) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) larvae, examining the distribution pattern of eggs deposited in 20 hosts in 24 h. The standardized Morisita index of dispersion (Ip) for the number of eggs in a host larva was almost always below zero, and the 95% confidence limits of the means were lower than zero for both experienced and inexperienced females, indicating that parasitoids tend to avoid multiple oviposition, although not completely. Second, we observed changes in host movements (head shaking and forward movement) after oviposition and the occurrence of additional ovipositions in pre-oviposited hosts, because a recent study indicated the necessity of visual cues provided by host movements for oviposition by this species. The incidence of host movements decreased markedly after oviposition and remained at a low level for approximately 1 h, during which time additional ovipositions were rarely observed. Temporary host paralysis after oviposition would be a new mechanism for the avoidance of self-superparasitism in a solitary endoparasitoid using visual cues from moving hosts for oviposition.

    The tenthredinid sawflies Macrophya apicalis and M. infumata, which range throughout Japan and adjacent areas, are very similar in external morphology and share the same host plant, Sambucus sieboldiana. We investigated their genetic distances within the genus and their intraspecific variation, and estimated their time of divergence to clarify the history of their speciation and colonization. We collected 33 specimens of the two species from several locations in the Japanese archipelago (Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu) and Cheju Island (Korea). We extracted total DNA from each specimen, and PCR amplified and sequenced 1300 bp of the cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI) gene. We constructed phylogenetic trees by using the UPGMA and maximum likelihood methods. We estimated divergence times based on previously published COI substitution rates. The genetic distance between the two species indicated that their ancestors differentiated in the late Miocene, probably on the Asian continent. Based on the calculated time of intraspecific diversification in Japan, we estimated that both species immigrated to Japan in the early Pleistocene and crossed the Tsugaru Strait land bridge between Hokkaido and Honshu after the middle Pleistocene. Genetic analysis of the two sibling species elucidated their relative taxonomical positions within the genus, and their intraspecific variation. Estimated from previously published COI evolutionary rates, the time of arrival of both species in Japan is consistent with the history of colonization of the country by other animals during the last ice age.

    Human-induced disturbances and wildfires can transform areas of tropical rainforest into Imperata-dominated grassland, but it may be possible that recovery of biodiversity is facilitated by reforestation with fast-growing trees. We compared the assemblages of braconid wasps as parasitoids of taxonomically diverse groups of insects among Imperata grasslands, young and mature plantations of Acacia mangium, young secondary forests after wildfires, and old secondary forests in the lowland of East Kalimantan. The abundance and species richness of braconids, which had declined in Imperata grasslands, somewhat increased in Acacia plantations, and also the species composition of braconids in Acacia plantations was transitional between Imperata grasslands and old secondary forests. Parasitoids of detritivores and wood borers increased markedly after plantation, while those of herbivores showed a distinct turnover of species all over the range from grasslands to old secondary forests. The plantation of A. mangium had most likely facilitated the recovery of the diversity of host forest and their parasitoids, but the recovery was just at the rudimentary stage even in mature plantations. Monitoring of parasitic wasps would be useful to test the continuous recovery of forest biodiversity in plantation stands.

    We tested the hypothesis that cocoon Suspension by a thread in hymenopteran parasitoids is a defense tactic against predators, by comparing predation against suspended and non-suspended cocoons of the braconid wisp Meteorus pulchricornis on a Quercus phillyraeoides hedge on which workers of the common small ant Crematogaster matsumurai were foraging. The lost proportion of non-suspended cocoons, which were artificially attached to leaves of Q. phillyraeoides, markedly decreased with cocoon age, indicating a critical phase of predation on young cocoons. No suspended cocoons at age 1-12 h at the beginning of exposure were lost within 12 It, whereas more than 75% of same-aged non-suspended cocoons were lost in the same period. Predation against such young cocoons Would be a strong force driving the evolution of cocoon suspension in parasitoids of exposed-living host insects.

    Meteorus pulchricornis is a solitary endoparasitoid of various lepidopteran larvae that attacks free-living hosts exposed on plant foliage. We tested the necessity of host movement for oviposition behavior in M. pulchricornis using dummy hosts as well as natural host larvae (Spodoptera litura). We quantified the occurrence of three steps in oviposition behavior, i.e., host orientation, oviposition stance, and oviposition attack, to natural hosts under light and dark conditions. We also examined the incidence of these behaviors on natural hosts, moving dummy hosts, and motionless dummy hosts under light conditions. Few successful attacks occurred on natural hosts under dark conditions and no oviposition attempts were made against motionless dummy hosts. These results indicate that visual cues from moving host larvae are necessary for successful oviposition. Furthermore, host movement seems important for female wasps to orient the ovipositor toward the host body, since the location of the oviposition attack on natural hosts changed markedly with the mode of host movement.

    Here we review the bioindicator potentials of several arthropod groups in forest management. First, we describe the indicator potentials of frequently used arthropod groups in general forest management, and then evaluate ecosystem function and plural taxonomic groups to infer forest biodiversity We then review indicator potentials of arthropod groups to explore the ecological consequences of forest management practices. Different arthropod groups respond differently to forest management. Ants, carabid beetles, and spiders often respond to local-scale, disturbance-induced vegetation development caused by thinning and can be used to infer the ecological suitability of forest management treatments. Dung beetles and moths respond to habitat alterations caused by forest fragmentation and can indicate the suitability of landscape-level forest management techniques. Butterflies and cerambycid beetles respond highly positively to the presence of herbaceous plants and understory trees and can be used to infer the integrity of thinning treatments in forest management. Syrphid flies, which are strong flyers associated with vegetation complexity, can be used as bioindicators of landscape-level forest management practices. Monitoring regulatory service providers may also help when designing forest management practices. We propose using arthropod bioindicator groups to effectively design and assess ecologically sustainable management plans for both natural and plantation forests.

  • Spatial population structure of the predatory ground beetle Carabus yaconinus (Coleoptera: Carabidae) in the mixed farmland-woodland satoyama landscape of Japan

    Yoshitake Kagawa, Kaoru Maeto

    To conserve the predators and parasitoids of agricultural pests it is necessary to understand their population structure in a mixed landscape, and to consider the spatial and temporal changes in their distribution and movement of adults and larvae. We studied the distribution and movement of the ground beetle Carabus yaconinus ( Coleoptera: Carabidae), which inhabits farmland-woodland landscapes. We placed a large number of pitfall traps along the border between a wood and an orchard and counted the number of C. yaconinus adults and larvae caught in the traps from 13 April to 28 June 2005. Some of the adults were marked before they were released. Adults were most abundant at the edge of the wood and the number caught gradually decreased when entering into the wood. In contrast, larvae were only found in the interior of the wood, although they moved closer to the edge of the wood as they matured. Adult females were collected within the wood and neighbouring orchards more frequently than adult males. It is likely that females enter woodlands in search of oviposition sites and leave woodlands in search of high-protein food sources to support reproduction. For sustaining populations of C. yaconinus it is necessary to have woodlands of at least 60 m in width adjacent to farmland. It is possible to design an appropriate landscape if the habitat requirements of the predatory arthropods are well understood.

    Intraspecific competition of larvae in superparasitism was examined in Meteorus pulchricornis (Hymenoptera: Bra conidae), a solitary endoparasitoid of lepidopteran larvae. The outcome of competition principally depended on the time interval between two ovipositions by conspecific females. Lethal symmetrical competition by physical attacks with sharp mandibles occurred between first-instar larvae just after or before hatching when two eggs were laid almost simultaneously into the same host within 30 min. During asymmetrical competition between first-instar larvae oviposited at an interval of 24h, older larvae tended to win against younger ones. However, during competition between first- and second-instar larvae oviposited at an interval of 72 h, the first instar always killed amandibulate second instars by physical attacks using the mandibles. In contrast, obvious developmental delays, but not death, of young first-instar larvae were detected as a result of asymmetrical competition at a 96-h interval. We did not observe egg mortality during either symmetrical or asymmetrical competition.

    To clarify the effects of forest fragmentation in urban landscapes on the abundance, species richness, dominance, and species composition of ground beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae and Brachinidae), we compared the beetles collected in 12 pitfall traps from April to July and from September to November between three continuous suburban forests and eight isolated urban forests (0.06-1.02 ha), most of which were in the precincts of shrines and temples in Hanshin District, Honshu, Japan. A total of 28 species and 4178 individuals of ground beetles were collected. Segregation of urban forests from continuous suburban forests has changed the species composition and resulted in the loss of some large-sized forest species and the addition of some non-forest species. Simpson's index of dominance (lambda) also increased in the urban forests. The richness of forest species markedly decreased with the reduction in forest area but not with the distance from continuous forests, although the species richness of non-forest species did not change with them. Also, species composition changed only with forest area. These findings indicate that continuous forests do not necessary serve as a "mainland" for urban forest species and that every urban habitat, however small in size, acts as a temporary reservoir of species. In comparison with populations of small-sized species, populations of large-sized forest species appeared to decline more readily during forest fragmentation.

    Sergey A. Belokobylskij, Kaoru Maeto

    The diversity of the braconide wasps of the subfamily Doryctinae from Ogasawara (Bonin) Islands, Japan, is studied. Twelve new species are described from these islands: Doryctes (Doryctes) boninus sp. nov., D. (Neodoryctes) makiharai sp. nov., Heterospilus micronesianus sp. nov., H. nishijimus sp. nov., H. pacificola sp. nov., H. striatiscutum sp. nov., H. watanabei sp. nov., Ecphylus (Sactopus) hahajimus sp. nov., Spathius asanderoides sp. nov., S. chichijimus sp. nov., S. ogasawarus sp. nov., and S. sugiurai sp. nov. Three species, Rhoptrocentrus piceus Marshall, 1897, Ontsira palliata (Cameron, 1881) and Heterospilus rubrocinctus (Ashmead, 1905), are firstly recorded for this territory. A key for determination of the all doryctine taxa of the Ogasawara Islands is given.

    Sergey A. Belokobylskij, Alejandro Zaldivar-Riveron, Kaoru Maeto, Alberto G. Saez

    The taxonomy of the Asian genera of the subfamily Betylobraconinae, a small and understudied group within the hymenopteran family Braconidae, is revised. A new genus exclusively from the Asian region, Asiabregma gen. nov., containing three species (A. ryukyuensis sp. nov. (type species, Japan and Malaya), A. makiharai sp. nov. (Japan) and A. sulaensis (van Achterberg), comb. nov. (Indonesia)) is described. One new species of Aulosaphobracon, A. striatus sp. nov. from Vietnam, and one of Facitorus, F amamioshimus sp. nov. from Japan, are also described. Based on molecular phylogenetic analyses using COT mtDNA and 28S rRNA sequences, the three genera previously placed in the tribe Facitorini, Facitorus, Conobregma and Jannya, together with Asiabregma gen. nov., are transferred to the rogadine tribe Yeliconini.

    We evaluated the effectiveness of line thinning, a new silvicultural technique, toward restoring diversity of Coleoptera in overstocked Cryptomeria japonica D. Don plantations in central Japan. We compared the abundance of some common Coleoptera families between line-thinned stands and adjacent unthinned stands in two plantations: low-elevation Sugi site (4 years since thinning) and high-elevation Kuchiotani site (6 years since thinning). Many bettle families comprising various functional groups such as plant feeders, wood borers, rotten wood feeders, root feeders, fungus feeders, dung feeders, and scavengers were more abundant in the line-thinned stands than in the unthinned stands. Furthermore, some important families were missing from the unthinned stands. There were strong positive relationships between Coleopteran abundance and understory vegetation. Our results suggest that line thinning may potentially increase biodiversity in overstocked C. japonica plantations by restoring important ecological processes such as food-web interactions (pollination, predation, herbivory, decomposition, parasitism, etc.), and habitat conditions.

    We investigated the effects of line thinning on the abundance of Hymenoptera in two Japanese cedar plantations in northern Hyogo Prefecture, central Japan, in order to evaluate the effectiveness of this silvicultural treatment for ecosystem management. Line thinning is a silvicultural treatment practiced in Japan, where linear stand sections are cut (25%-35% of the total number of trees) retaining one to two rows of trees. We used Malaise traps to capture Hymenoptera from the line-thinned stand (treatment plot, including thinned and retained sections) and the unthinned stand (control plot). Overall, the total number of Hymenoptera was greater in the treatment plot than in the control plot. The treatment plot hosted more functional groups and families of Hymenoptera than the control plot in both plantations. In the Kuchiotani plantation (high-elevation site), the overall abundance of Hymenoptera and of many Hymenopteran functional groups were positively correlated with both species richness and biomass of understory plants. In the Sugi plantation (low-elevation site), understory vegetation was less developed and there was no correlation with abundance of Hymenoptera. Our study indicates that line thinning is an effective silvicultural treatment for future management of overstocked Japanese cedar plantations because it can fulfill biodiversity objectives, but the effectiveness may depend on silvicultural and landscape factors.

    We investigated the predatory ability of Carabus yaconinus (Coleoptera: Carabidae) on larvae of Spodoptera litura (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) in the laboratory. A C. yaconinus adult preyed on ca. 90 S. litura larvae at the second-instar stage during 24 h. The number of larvae killed in 24 h decreased to ca. 40, 30 and 20 at third-, fourth- and fifth-instar stages, respectively. The wet weight of S. litura larvae killed by a C. yaconinus in 24 h increased with the larval stages of S. litura, and was. highest for the fifth-instar stage. C. yaconinus adults occasionally left the predation unfinished and bit another live prey. The proportion of half-eaten prey varied with the larval stage of the prey. C. yaconinus can efficiently kill large numbers of S. litura larvae; thus, it may play an important role as a natural enemy of lepidopteran pests in agricultural fields.

  • The use of arthropods as indicators of ecosystem integrity in forest management

    M. Abdul Maleque, Hiroaki T. Ishii, Kaoru Maeto

    Arthropods play vital roles in various ecosystem functions and respond acutely to habitat manipulation. Diversity and community dynamics of arthropods are strongly correlated with ecosystem functioning. Arthropod community structure reflects habitat heterogeneity, as well as development and recovery of forest ecosystems after natural and anthropogenic disturbances. Arthropod community structure also reflects the degree of fragmentation and isolation of forest ecosystems on the landscape. Arthropods are good indicators of the overall biodiversity and ecosystem integrity of forests and can be used for evaluating and designing sound ecosystem management plans.

    The attraction of Urocerus japonicus to volatile chemicals, which discolors the wood of conifers, was examined in the field. Attracting effects of α-pinene and ethanol that were suggested to be effective as attractants were compared to U. japonicus with Hodoron®, which has been used as an attractant for woodwasps. Adults of U. japonicus were captured in chemically treated adhesive traps, which were set up in a hinoki Cypress Chamaecyparis obtusa plantation. More female adults of U. japonicus were captured in traps with α-pinene or Hodoron® than in those without chemicals. There was no significant difference between the number of captured females in traps with α-pinene and those with Hodoron®. There were also no significant differences in the number of captured males among treatments. Traps with ethanol did not attract either sex of U. japonicus. It was indicated that both α-pinene and Hodoron® have attracting effects on female U. japonicus.

    To understand the long-term impacts of forestry, i.e., the conversion of old-growth native forests to second-growth native forests or conifer plantations, on ant species richness (i.e., the number of species) and species composition, ant assemblages from five old-growth forests (more than 120 years), four second-growth forests (30-70 years) and three conifer plantations (30-40 years) were compared in the Shimanto River Basin, Shikoku, southwest Japan. The number of ant species collected totaled 39. The number of ant species from the old-growth native forests, second-growth native forests and conifer plantations was 10-20, 15-20 and 11-15, respectively. The overall ant species richness had not been affected by forest conversion. However, correspondence analysis (CA) showed that the ant species composition was markedly different between old-growth forests and converted forests (second-growth forests and conifer plantations). The species richness of woodland specialists was greater in the old-growth forests, and open-habitat specialists and habitat generalists dominated the converted forests. The impacts of forestry on ant assemblages were of a long duration. Ant assemblages of the second-growth forests under regeneration for 40-70 years after logging were still distinct from those of old-growth forests. Careful management of second-growth forests bordering old-growth remnants would be essential to prevent the invasion of open-habitat species of ants into the interior of old-growth forests.

    Quercus crispula (=Q. mongolica var. grosseserrata) is the predominant tree species in cool temperate, mixed broadleaf/conifer forests in northern Japan. We compared 11 years of data on acorn production in a population of Q. crispula, with data on seed-insect populations, to try to answer the following questions: (1) Does Q. crispula show a regular pattern of masting? (2) How long do principal seed predators remain in diapause? (3) How do the seed predators affect the pattern of predator satiation? Q. crispula showed a tendency to alternate bearing, with significant synchrony between individual trees. The principal acorn-feeding insects (Curculio spp. weevils), which infested 25%-70% of matured acorns, generally exhibited a prolonged diapause of 2 years. No significant negative relationship was found between the rate of injury by the weevils and the density of mature acorns, indicating that simple predator satiation fails due to the synchrony of the life-cycle of acorn-feeding insects and the periodical production of acorns. However, the rate of injury by the weevils was negatively correlated with the relative abundance of mature acorns to the number of weevil larvae that had matured 2 years previously. Thus, the proportion of sound acorns notably increased in a rich crop after a disturbance in alternate bearing. Prolonged diapause of specific seed predators is critical in determining the peak year of sound-seed production.

  • Species diversity of longicorn beetles in humid warm-temperate forests: the impact of forest management practices on old-growth forest species in southwestern Japan

    K Maeto, S Sato, H Miyata

    In the humid warm-temperate zone of southwestern Japan, old-growth forests have been seriously fragmented to small remnants due to traditional agriculture and coppicing as well as recent rapid plantation with conifers. Assemblages of longicorn beetles (Coleoptera: Disteniidae and Cerambycidae) were compared among old-growth forests, second-growth forests and conifer plantations using collision traps baited with chemical attractants. Species richness of longicorn beetles was poorer in second-growth forests and conifer plantations than in old-growth forests. It was proved by multidimensional scaling (MDS) that the beetle assemblages of old-growth forests were distinct from those of conifer plantations, while those of second-growth forests were intermediate between them. Further analysis showed that a number of species, including many Pidonia spp., were specific to or closely associated with old-growth forests, and the results were largely supported by the indicator value (IndVal) approach. It is likely that many of such old-growth forest species in the larval and pupal stages require large broad-leaved trees standing or fallen with thick bark. At the same time, the flower-visiting adults would play an important role in pollinating various herbaceous and woody plants. Regional forest management for the conservation of insect biodiversity is also discussed.

  • Dispersal distance of adult Japanese horntail Urocerus japonicus (Hymenoptera : Siricidae) which causes wood discoloration damage

    S Sato, K Maeto, H Miyata

    The dispersal distance of adults of the Japanese horntail, Urocerus japonicus, was studied in the field by the mark-recapture method. Twenty-two attractant-traps were set up on 3 transect belts which were set spokewise from a fixed release point in a Chamaecyparis obutusa stand. Traps were 10-150 m apart from the release point. Adults emerging in cages were released at the release point after being marked on the thoraces with paint. Traps were examined weekly. Two hundred and eighty males and 56 females were released, and a total of 22 males and 16 females were recaptured. The recapture ratio was significantly higher for females than for males. All males were recaptured in the traps at 10 m from the release point, although some females were captured over 30 m from the release point. One female was captured in a trap 90 m from the release point and the longest dispersal distance of females was estimated to be 105 m. Thus, the dispersal distance of females is concluded to be farther than that of males.

  • Mature tree effect of Acer mono on seedling mortality due to insect herbivory

    K Maeto, K Fukuyama

    Mature tree effects on the mortality and herbivory of current-year seedlings were investigated in a common subcanopy species, Acer mono Maxim., in a cool temperate mixed forest. The mortality of natural seedlings under the canopy with A. mono layers was greater than that under the canopy without them. Also, the mortality of seedlings in planters located under the crown of an A. mono tree was at least 1.8 rimes greater than that of those in planters about 5 m away from the crown edge. Pyrrhalta fuscipennis (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) and other specialist insects, having probably dropped from A. mono crowns, were more frequently observed in planters under A. mono crowns than in those far from the crowns. Leaf area loss due to specialist herbivores was probably the main cause of increase in the mortality of A. mono seedlings close to conspecific adults. It is implied that seedling predation by specialist herbivores coming from parent trees is a substantial factor promoting local seed dispersal of A. mono.

  • Field tests of a balloon-suspended trap system for studying insects in the canopy of tropical rainforests

    K Fukuyama, K Maeto, LG Kirton

    A system of suspending traps from a movable balloon was developed and tested on pollinating and wood boring Coleoptera in a tropical rainforest canopy in Pasoh Forest Reserve, Peninsular Malaysia. The balloons, 2.5 m in diameter, were filled with helium gas for levitation and moored in different directions by three pieces of thin rope. Traps in which benzyl acetate and ethanol were used as attractants for the pollinators and wood borers, respectively, were suspended from the balloon at different heights. The trapping results show that the balloon system can be used for studying canopy insects and their vertical distribution on a spatial and temporal scale.

  • 2-YEAR LIFE-CYCLE OF THE RED-HEADED SPRUCE WEB-SPINNING SAWFLY, CEPHALCIA-ISSHIKII (HYMENOPTERA, PAMPHILIIDAE)

    K MAETO, K OZAKI

    Prepupal development of the red-headed spruce web-spinning sawfly, Cephalcia isshikii, was studied in an outbreak population at Naganuma, central Hokkaido. A 2-year life cycle was predominant in the population. Prepupae spent the first winter as eonymphs in the soil. Most became pronymphs by the second winter and developed into pupae the next summer. However, a small proportion of prepupae entered prolonged diapause as eonymphs. The developmental rates of overwintered pronymphs and pupae were faster at higher temperatures. The Q10 values for the development of overwintered pronymphs were low (1.3-1.6), so no available developmental zero was indicated for the post-diapause development of pronymphs.

    SI KUDO, K MAETO, K OZAKI

    We describe oviposition and maternal behavior in the sawfly Cephalcia isshikii and examine the adaptive significance of this behavior. Females deposited eggs in a single but loose cluster on needles of terminal twigs of spruces, Picea spp., and remained with the eggs usually on the underside of the twig facing toward the tip. The female attended her eggs until death without taking food but did not follow the first-instar larvae that moved from natal needles even if she survived until then. When the female was disturbed, she usually moved toward the source and attempted to bite it. Though at much lower frequencies, this aggressive behavior was also observed in gravid females and even in males. Field observations and female-removal experiments indicated that the female enhanced the survival of the eggs through the reduction of arthropod predation.

    To elucidate the effects of understory vegetation on arthropod diversity after line thinning, we investigated changes in ant community structure after experimental removal of understory vegetation in a line-thinned stand and an adjacent control stand. There was no difference in the number of ant species found in the two stands. The ant community structure of the line-thinned stand was characterized by habitat generalists, whereas that of the control stand was characterized by woodland specialists. Understory removal affected differently the community structure of the two stands. In the line-thinned stand, the effect may be small because the community was characterized by species with high environmental adaptability, whereas in the control stand, the community, which is characterized by species adapted to closed canopy environments, may be more sensitive to disturbances. Although the effect of understory removal on ant community structure was small compared to that of stand thinning, maintaining a diverse understory following canopy closure after intense thinning may increase ant species diversity by allowing habitat generalists and woodland specialists to coexist.
