Pangolin Order of mammals

Pangolins or scaly anteaters are mammals of the order Pholidota. The one extant family, Manidae, has three genera: Manis, which comprises four species living in Asia; Phataginus, which comprises two species living in Africa; and Smutsia, which comprises two species also living in Africa. These species range in size from 30 to 100 cm. A number of extinct pangolin species are also known.

Chevrotain A family of mammals belonging to even-toed ungulates

Chevrotains, also known as mouse-deer, are small ungulates that make up the family Tragulidae, the only extant members of the infraorder Tragulina. The 10 extant species are placed in three genera, but several species also are known only from fossils. The extant species are found in forests in South and Southeast Asia, with a single species in the rainforests of Central and West Africa. They are solitary or live in pairs, and feed almost exclusively on plant material. Chevrotains are the smallest hoofed mammals in the world. The Asian species weigh between 0.7 and 8.0 kg, while the African chevrotain is considerably larger at 7–16 kg (15–35 lb).

<i>Bassariscus</i> genus of mammals

Bassariscus is a genus in the family Procyonidae. There are two species in the genus: the ring-tailed cat or ringtail and the cacomistle. Genetic studies have indicated that the closest relatives of Bassariscus are raccoons, from which they diverged about 10 million years ago. The two lineages of Bassariscus are thought to have separated after only another two million years, making it the extant procyonid genus with the earliest diversification.

<i>Casuarina</i> genus of plants

Casuarina is a genus of 17 tree species in the family Casuarinaceae, native to Australia, the Indian subcontinent, southeast Asia, and islands of the western Pacific Ocean. It was once treated as the sole genus in the family, but has been split into three Australian genera and a fourth.

<i>Scelio</i> genus of insects

Scelio is a large genus, the largest within the family Scelionidae, of parasitic wasp whose known target host include the eggs of grasshoppers. They are found worldwide and some species have been implemented as biological control agents.

Prionoglarididae is a family of Psocoptera that are barklice characterized by the reduction or simplification of the lacinia in adults and the specialised form of the male genitalia. It contains the only known genus of animals, Neotrogla, where females possess a penis-like organ and take on typical male sex roles.

Calliscelio is a parasitoid wasp monotypic genus which contains one species, C. elegans. It was first described as Caloteleia elegans on Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands in 1910 by British entomologist Robert Cyril Layton Perkins, who believed it not to be an indigenous species of Hawaii. Its pantropical species distribution is now well-established and it is still considered to be an adventive species in Hawaii. C. elegans was reassigned from its original genus to Caenoteleia in 1926 by French entomologist Jean-Jacques Kieffer and then to Calliscelio in 2009.

<i>Maaminga</i> genus of insects

Maaminga is a genus of parasitic wasps containing two species and constituting the family Maamingidae. Discovered, and so far only known from New Zealand, the first two named species are Maaminga marrisi and M. rangi. The genus name derives from the Māori word "māminga", simply translated as "trickster" as the species evaded discovery for so long.

Proctotrupidae family of Hymenoptera described by Pierre André Latreille in 1802

It is a very large cosmopolitan group of exclusively parasitoid wasps, mostly small (0.5–10 mm), often black, often highly sculptured, with (typically) elbowed antennae that have a 9- or 10-segmented flagellum. It was formerly considered to be a family Scelionidae but has been reclassified as a subfamily of the Platygastridae.
