Abstract

A new fossil of the colletid bee subfamily Xeromelissinae is described and figured from Miocene amber of the Dominican Republic. The species is represented by a single female and is proposed as Chilicola electrodominica sp. n. The fossil is distinguished from living Chilicola as well as the only other fossil xeromelissine, C. gracilis. The relative ages of the genus Chilicola, the subfamily, and the Colletidae as a whole are briefly discussed.

Sambia succinica gen. et sp.n. from Eocene Baltic amber is described and illustrated. It is apparently the first amber fossil that can be definitively assigned to Tenthredininae. It displays two diagnostic forewing characters for this subfamily: having a bend distally in vein R and the junctions of veins M and Rs + M with vein R being some distance from each other. The variance and possible transitions between the anal vein configurations among the genera in Tenthredininae is briefly discussed.

A Guidebook for Candidates and Supervisors
" Of Other Thoughts offers a path-breaking critique of the traditions underpinning doctoral research. Working against the grain of traditional research orthodoxies, graduate researchers (almost all from Indigenous, transnational, diasporic, coloured, queer and ethnic minorities) AND their supervisors offer insights into non-traditional and emergent modes of research—transcultural, post-colonial, transdisciplinary and creative practice-led. Through case studies and contextualizing essays, Of Other Thoughts provides a unique guide to doctoral candidates and supervisors working with different modes of research. More radically, its questioning of traditional assumptions about the nature of the literature review, the genealogy of research practices, and the status and structuring of the thesis creates openings for alternative modes of researching. It gives our emerging researchers the courage to differ and challenges the University to take up its public role as critic and conscience of society." - Barbara Bolt, Associate Professor and Associate Director of Research and Research Training, Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne, Australia
