Abstract

This biography of the Hungarian/Romanian/Israeli hymenopterist Qabir Argaman (= Carol Nagy) provides a list of his publications (except for newspaper articles) and the new taxa and new replacement names he proposed. Dr. Argaman began his career in Hungary, publishing under the name Carol Nagy. He later moved to Romania and finally moved to Israel, where he assumed the name Qabir Argaman. In total, he published 84 articles on the order Hymenoptera and described 348 new taxa (2 families, 11 subfamilies, 58 tribes, 153 genera or subgenera, and 125 species or subspecies) in 15 families, as well as 1 new species of Scarabaeidae (Coleoptera).

Introduction

The majority of insect taxonomists tend to focus on a single family group for the majority of their careers. However, others have more diverse interests. The taxonomist Qabir Argaman (Fig. 1) worked on a wide diversity of Hymenoptera families during his career between 1965 and 2003, and he did so under different names. Early on he published under the names Carol Nagy or Károly Nagy and later under the name Qabir Argaman. In total he published new taxa in 15 hymenopteran families, Ampulicidae, Bethylidae, Braconidae, Bradynobaenidae (as Apterogynidae), Dryinidae, Heterogynaidae, Kislevidae, Mutillidae, Perilampidae, Plumariidae, Sclerogibbidae, Scolebythidae, Scoliidae, Sierolomorphidae and Tiphiidae (mostly as Myzinidae), as well as one new species of Scarabaeidae (Coleoptera). Because of his changes of surname, the obscure nature of some of the journals he published in and the diversity of families involved, it is difficult to find many of his publications. We have attempted to do so here, and also give a brief account of his life based on many (sometimes conflicting) sources.

Károly (Karol/Carol) György (George) Nagy was born on January 15, 1940 in Oradea, Romania (the region was transferred to Hungary later that year, but restored to Romania after the war). In the early 1960’s he attended university in Romania where he developed an interest in wasp taxonomy. In 1965 he began publishing on the Mutillidae, Bethylidae and “heterogyne Hymenoptera” of Romania. He graduated in 1967 from Babeş-Bolyai University, in Cluj-Napoca, Romania with an MSc degree in biology. He then studied under László Móczár at the University of Szeged in Hungary, where he received his PhD in 1968. Thereafter he held a position at the Marine Research Institute, in Agigea-Constantza, Romania, where he studied the taxonomy, biology and zoogeography of the Romanian wasp fauna. He obtained his DSc in 1974 from the University “Al. I. Cuza” in Iaşi, his thesis on the scolioids of Romania being supervised by Mihai Constantineanu.

In 1980 Carol Nagy moved from Agigea, Romania to Israel (Menke 1980). According to a note in Sphecos (Menke 1981) he and his family left Romania with only 40 kg of baggage, which consisted mostly of clothes for their baby. He had to leave behind his entomological library and collections in Romania, lived for a time in a camp for immigrants, and started a new life in a new country with all the attendant challenges - learning a new language, trying to find employment (difficult for a wasp taxonomist in such a small country and without his literature resources), and trying to find a permanent home. During this period he briefly changed his surname from Nagy to Grosman, but was required by Israeli immigration regulations to adopt a Hebrew name (Menke 1982). He then became Qabir Argaman (ארגמן כביר), and from the mid 1980’s his papers were all published under this name. In 1981 he began working as an insect taxonomist for the Israeli Ministry of Agriculture, Plant Protection Department, in Bet Dagan, working on insects of agricultural importance. However, he also continued his work on a diversity of wasp families, but suffered from shortages of basic supplies such as pins and boxes, an initial lack of a collection and constraints on field work (the threat of terrorism being a concern) (Menke 1987). He worked for the Ministry of Agriculture until his death in October 2003 at the age of 63.

Nagy’s research interests changed over the years. Between 1965 and 1968 his studies focused primarily on the Romanian fauna. In 1968 he described a new species of Mutillidae from Sudan (Nagy 1968b) and this began the expansion of his research interests into other parts of the world. In the 1970’s he began working on the European bethylid and mutillid faunas and small collections of ampulicids from Africa, tiphiids, scolebythids, South American Plumariiidae and Mongolian scoliids. There is a gap in his publications between 1980 and 1986, which is the period when he moved his family to Israel. In the remainder of the 1990’s he began new studies of Perilampidae, Sierolomorphidae and Scoliidae and continued his work on the Bethylidae, Sclerogibbidae and Tiphiidae. He produced several papers dealing with the higher-level classification of various groups, describing many new genera and other higher taxa supposedly based on phylogenetic principles requiring naming of monophyletic groups, but never provided any cladistic or other analyses justifying his decisions. His publications were primarily limited to descriptions of new taxa and faunal lists. He never produced any taxonomic revisions. Subsequent workers have generally rejected his excessively split approach and synonymized most of his names, or else deliberately ignored them (e.g. Osten 2005). His idiosyncratic approach and involvement with such a diversity of groups means that any workers having to deal with his taxa and names should be aware of these complexities to be able to evaluate them properly.

According to an unpublished obituary provided by the Israeli Ministry of Agriculture, Argaman’s personal collection, primarily accumulated once he arrived in Israel, also included some materials dating from his early work in Hungary and Romania. According to Laibale Friedman (in Romano 2012), after Argaman’s death the collection was broken up, part being sold privately, and the remainder being donated by his family to the Israeli Ministry of Agriculture and transferred to the Tel Aviv University Collection. For unknown reasons, Argaman apparently removed labels from some specimens, including types, leaving them without any labels at all, and making the identification of such type specimens essentially impossible. (When DJB briefly visited him in Tel Aviv in 1985, he gained the impression that Argaman was suspicious of the motives of others and jealously guarded his specimens, not being willing to let them out of his sight; this attitude probably resulted from the personal difficulties he had endured, and may explain the removal of labels.) Repositories of his types, according to his publications and information provided by collection managers, include the following:

Argaman Coll. – much of his personal collection now resides in Tel Aviv (see below), the location(s) and extent of the remainder are unknown.

Lists of his theses and publications are given below (compiled from various sources, importantly using information provided by Laibale Friedman which unfortunately had all titles translated into English). A complete tabulation of new taxa described by him is given in Table 1, followed by an Appendix comprising a detailed list of his new taxa and new names, including type locality and repository for each species. If the repository has been confirmed by the date of this publication it is indicated as such. Others are yet to be confirmed. This is another problem to be resolved; it has not been possible to determine the location of most of the aculeate wasp types described by him. Some, particularly the aculeates, may still be in Romania.

The more cultural publications included below were generally authored by “Nagy G Károly”, reflected here as “Nagy KG”. Where easily available, actual dates of publication are provided, and the sequence attempts to reflect the temporal sequence of publication (primarily based on the sequence in the list mentioned above). Unfortunately, we have been unable to obtain copies of all of the entries and have therefore not been able to provide the original titles for those non-English papers we have not seen, but indicate the original language. His papers were in Romanian, German, Hungarian, French, English and Hebrew; English translations of Hungarian and Romanian titles are given in addition to the originals since these are less familiar languages to most, but only English translations of the Hebrew titles are given.

Appendix 1

New taxa described and new names proposed by Argaman/Nagy. It has not been possible to check the accuracy of all of Argaman/Nagy’s type designations, so the information on these is derived directly from his publications. Synonymies have been indicated where known to us; some may, however, have been missed, so this listing should not be considered authoritative.

Family Scoliidae (Argaman (1996) was deliberately not taken into account by Osten (2005) in compiling his checklist of Scoliidae of the world. Elliott (2011) recognized that Osten (2005) implicitly synonymized some Argaman genera by placing their type species in other genera or subgenera, and we have followed this approach, although some of Argaman’s type species may have been misidentified since he did not examine their type material. Argaman’s (1996) numerous new names and other nomenclatural acts thus still need more critical evaluation beyond that possible here.)

Subfamily: Colpinae Argaman, 1996: 180. Type genus: Colpa Dufour, 1841. =Campsomerini Betrem in Betrem & Bradley, 1972. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 3).

Tribe: Dasyscoliini Argaman, 1996: 181. Type genus: Dasyscolia Bradley, 1951. =Campsomerini Betrem in Betrem & Bradley, 1972. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 3).

Tribe: Dielidini Argaman, 1996: 212. Type genus: Dielis Saussure & Sichel, 1864. =Campsomerini Betrem in Betrem & Bradley, 1972. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 3).

Tribe: Discoliini Argaman, 1996: 197. Type genus: Discolia Saussure, 1863. =Scoliini Latreille, 1802. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 26).

Tribe: Dobrobetini Argaman, 1996: 205. Type genus: Dobrobeta Argaman, 1996. =Campsomerini Betrem in Betrem & Bradley, 1972. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 22).

Tribe: Hangasornini Argaman, 1996: 197. Type genus: Hangasorna Argaman, 1996. =Scoliini Latreille, 1802. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 41).

Tribe: Heterelini Argaman, 1996: 183. Type genus: Heterelis Costa, 1887. =Campsomerini Betrem in Betrem & Bradley, 1972. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 3).

Tribe: Lisocini Argaman, 1996: 199. Type genus: Lisoca Costa, 1858. =Scoliini Latreille, 1802. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 26).

Tribe: Megacampsomerini Argaman, 1996: 211. Type genus: Megacampsomeris Betrem, 1928. =Campsomerini Betrem in Betrem & Bradley, 1972. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 3).

Tribe: Megascoliini Argaman, 1996: 199. Type genus: Megascolia Betrem, 1928. =Scoliini Latreille, 1802. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 26).

Tribe: Pseudotrielidini Argaman, 1996: 205. Type genus: Pseudotrielis Betrem, 1928. =Campsomerini Betrem in Betrem & Bradley, 1972. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 3).

Tribe: Tetrascitonini Argaman, 1996: 201. Type genus: Tetrasciton Betrem, 1927. =Campsomerini Betrem in Betrem & Bradley, 1972. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 8).

Tribe: Trisciloini Argaman, 1996: 201. Type genus: Trisciloa Gribodo, 1893. =Campsomerini Betrem in Betrem & Bradley, 1972. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 3).

Tribe: Triscoliini Argaman, 1996: 193. Type genus: Triscolia Saussure, 1863. =Scoliini Latreille, 1802. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 26).

Tribe: Ycasbraini Argaman, 1996: 191. Type genus: Ycasbraia Argaman, 1996. =Scoliini Latreille, 1802. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 42).

Genus: Agombarda Argaman, 1996: 194. Type species: Scolia atra Illiger, 1802. =Discolia Saussure, 1863. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 27).

Genus: Ascolia Argaman, 1996: 188. Type species: Scolia flavifrons Fabricius, 1775. Intended as an emendation of Ascoli Guérin-Méneville, 1838 but that name is not available since it was proposed for a hypothetical taxon (Guérin-Méneville 1838) and Ascolia must thus be regarded as a new genus. =Regiscolia Betrem & Bradley, 1964. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 37). (The name Ascoli has had a checkered history, being cited in synonymy of Triscolia Saussure, 1863 by Saussure & Sichel (1864) but being used as valid by Betrem (1926) and thereby technically being made available (ICZN 1999, Article 11.6.1). It has not been used as valid since, and a type species has never been designated. Jacot-Guillarmod et al. (1963) requested the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature to suppress Ascoli as used by Guérin-Ménéville (1838) and Betrem (1926), but an Opinion on this has never been issued, which means that prevailing usage (which regards it as unavailable) should be maintained (ICZN 1999, Article 82.1).)

Genus: Bagonasuna Argaman, 1996: 186. Type species: Trielis tartara Morawitz, 1897. =Crioscolia Bradley, 1951. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 23); Morawitz (“1897”) dealt with Trielis tartara (Saussure, 1880) var. mongolica Morawitz, 1889, however (Morawitz’s paper was actually published in 1896, see Oshanin (1910)).

Genus: Batalanga Argaman, 1996: 205. Type species: Elis phalerata Saussure, 1858. Proposed as a new replacement name for Phalerimeris Betrem, 1967 not Betrem, 1966. =Phalerimeris Betrem, 1967. Batalanga is an objective synonym of Phalerimeris Betrem, 1967 because “Phalerimeris Betrem, 1966” is not an available name, merely appearing without any description and stated to be a nomen nudum (Bradley & Betrem 1966: 74), and therefore cannot be a senior homonym of Phalerimeris Betrem, 1967. (For “Phalerimeris Betrem, 1966” Argaman (1996: 205) used “Phaleromeris Bradley, 1964” but that too is not an available name, having no description (Bradley 1964: 193); Annulimeris Betrem, 1967 should be used for that taxon.)

Genus: Borongorba Argaman, 1996: 213. Type species: Scolia habrocoma Smith, 1855. =Megacampsomeris Betrem, 1928. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 12).

Genus: Burgamurga Argaman, 1996: 194. Type species: Scolia cyanipennis Fabricius, 1804. =Discolia Saussure, 1863. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 30).

Genus: Buzatlana Argaman, 1996: 200. Type species: Scolia fuciformis Scopoli, 1786. =Scolia Fabricius, 1775. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 33).

Genus: Citberaysa Argaman, 1996: 192. Type species: Scolia ebenina Saussure, 1858. =Austroscolia Betrem, 1928. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 31).

Genus: Curtaurga Argaman, 1996: 183. Type species: Scolia aliena Klug, 1832. Proposed as a new replacement name for Guigliana Betrem, 1967 not Bradley, 1964. =Guigliana Betrem, 1967. Curtaurga is an objective synonym of Guigliana Betrem because “Guigliana Bradley, 1964” is not an available name, merely appearing as “Scolia (Guigliana) azurea azurea Christ” without any description (Bradley 1964: 192), and therefore cannot be a senior homonym of Guigliana Betrem. (Osten (2005: 27) placed S. azurea Christ in Megascolia (Regiscolia); there is thus no need for another name for Argaman’s concept of “Guigliana Bradley, 1964”.)

Genus: Dobrobeta Argaman, 1996: 206. Type species: Campsomeris socotrana Kirby, 1900. =Cathimeris Betrem, 1972. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 22).

Genus: Elpaholta Argaman, 1996: 194. Type species: Scolia fulvifrons Saussure, 1854. =Regiscolia Betrem & Bradley, 1964. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 33).

Genus: Fiharbuxa Argaman, 1996: 212. Type species: Scolia prismatica Smith, 1855. =Megacampsomeris Betrem, 1928. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 19).

Genus: Gondiconda Argaman, 1996: 210. Type species: Elis vittata Sichel, 1864. =Pygodasis Bradley, 1957. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 25).

Genus: Hangasorna Argaman, 1996: 197. Type species: Scolia quadripustulata Fabricius, 1782. =Discolia Saussure, 1863. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 41).

Genus: Haralambia Argaman, 1996: 215. Type species: Tiphia dorsata Fabricius, 1787. =Dielis Saussure & Sichel, 1864. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 10).

Genus: Hayderiba Argaman, 1996: 209. Type species: Colpa peregrina Lepeletier, 1845. New replacement name for Colpa Lepeletier, 1845 not Dufour, 1841. =Campsomeris Guérin-Ménéville, 1838. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 19).

Genus: Hitfoidra Argaman, 1996: 192. Type species: Scolia carnifex Coquerel, 1855. =Austroscolia Betrem, 1928. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 29).

Genus: Ilkamilka Argaman, 1996: 212. Type species: Campsomeris luzonensis Rohwer, 1921. =Megacampsomeris Betrem, 1928. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 16).

Genus: Jupadora Argaman, 1996: 193. Type species: Scolia cerberia Bradley, 1959. =Microscolia Betrem, 1927. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 29); the specific name is also spelled “cereberia” in Bradley (1959), the spelling used by Osten.

Genus: Katapolda Argaman, 1996: 198. Type species: Scolia desidiosa Bingham, 1896. =Discolia Saussure, 1863. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 30).

Genus: Kokarevta Argaman, 1996: 200. Type species: Scolia histrionica Fabricius, 1787. =Discolia Saussure, 1863. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 35).

Genus: Kukkiya Argaman, 1996: 187. Type species: Scolia moricei Saunders, 1901. =Crioscolia Bradley, 1951. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 17).

Genus: Lacosia Argaman, 1996: 199. Type species: Scolia pygmaea Saussure, 1858. Proposed as an emendation of Lacosi Guérin-Méneville, 1838, but must be considered as a new genus different in concept, since Bequaert (1926) had correctly designated the type species of Lacosi as Scolia quadripunctata Fabricius, 1775, and S. pygmaea was not an originally included species of Lacosi Guérin-Méneville. =Discolia Saussure, 1863. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 35).

Genus: Laskariska Argaman, 1996: 188. Type species: Scolia haemorrhoidalis Fabricius, 1787. =Regiscolia Betrem & Bradley, 1964. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 37).

Genus: Lobhargita Argaman, 1996: 208. Type species: Scolia aureola Klug, 1832. =Micromeriella Betrem, 1972. Synonymy implied by Osten (2005: 5).
