Sawflies were collected in Ethiopia during 2010-2013. Three species represent new records for the country: Arge deckerti Koch, 2005, Athalia excisa Koch, 2006 and Xenapates nigrifrons Koch, 2012. Arge flavifrons Mocsáry, 1909, syn. n. and A. transvaalensis Cameron, 1911, syn. n. are subjective synonyms of A. micheli (Buysson, 1900) that is re-described here. Athalia fumosa Gribodo, 1879 sp. rev. is recognized as a valid species and is removed from synonymy with A. scioensis Gribodo, 1879. Distega braunsi Enslin, 1911 syn...

The mitochondrial genome sequence of Tenthredo tienmushana (Takeuchi, 1940) (Hymenoptera: Tenthredinidae) (GenBank accession KR703581) was reported. The length of the sequenced region of this mitochondrial genome is 14,943 bp, with 13 protein-coding, two rRNA, 19 tRNA (the trnI, trnQ, and trnM were failed to sequence) genes and a partial A + T-rich region. As in most other sequenced mitochondrial genomes of the suborder "Symphyta", there is no gene rearrangement in the sequenced region compared with the pupative ancestral gene arrangement of insects...

The complete mitochondrial genome of the Allantus luctifer (Smith) (Hymenoptera: Tenthredinidae: Allantinae) is reported in this study (GenBank accession No. KJ713152). This is the first mitochondrial genome from the subfamily Allantinae and the first completely sequenced mitochondrial genome from the Tenthredinoidea. The length of this mitochondrial genome is 15,418 bp with an A+T content of 81.13%, including 13 protein-coding, 2 rRNA and 22 tRNA gene, and an A+T-rich region (Table 1). Gene arrangement is identical to the other two mitochondrial genomes of tenthredinoid species in nearly all region as in the pupative ancestral arrangement of insects...

The cuticle of Tenthredinidae (Hymenoptera) larvae is ruptured after a very mild mechanical stress and hemolymph is released. This phenomenon, called "easy bleeding" is considered as a defence strategy against predators. We investigated the cuticle structure of some selected species capable of "easy bleeding" by light-, transmission- and scanning microscopy and compared it with phylogenetically-related sawfly species without this defense strategy (control). Cuticle thickness has no major influence on mechanical stability, but pronounced local differences in thickness seem to be inversely correlated with mechanical strength...

Larvae of several tenthredinid sawfly species readily release droplets of haemolymph through their integument when attacked by predators. This defence mechanism via 'bleeding' is characterised by a low integument resistance and a high haemolymph deterrence. Both traits are variable, and negatively correlated among species. We sought to determine if such differences in the propensity to bleed also occur intraspecifically by studying the heritability of traits potentially associated with the bleeding phenomenon in the turnip sawfly Athalia rosae ruficornis Jakovlev (Hymenoptera: Tenthredinidae, Allantinae)...
