      Our results showed maternal body color was not heritable, whereas paternal body color was correlated with the body color of the progeny. Body size and sex ratio were not correlated with body color of parents.

      We report the interactions among one of the most common glucosinolate (sinigrin), prey type and elevated atmospheric CO2 on the performance of third trophic organism (aphidophagous hoverfly).

      We found significant interaction between future atmospheric CO2 levels and prey type where the oligophagous aphid (Brevicoryne brassicae) could be the most serious pest in the future CO2 levels.

      Hodotermopsiphila gen. nov. is described to include four new termitophilous species: H. maruyamai sp. nov. (Yaku-shima, Japan), H. nitens sp. nov. (Yaku-shima, Japan), H. longisetosa sp. nov. (Taiwan), and H. sugayai sp. nov. (Taiwan and northern Laos). These species are associated with the damp-wood termite, Hodotermopsis sjostedti Holmgren, 1911.
