Iranian Chrysidids

Postby Euchroeus » 13 Dec 2013 20:40


it was recently published the article:

Rosa P., Lotfalizadeh H. & Pourrafei L. (2013) First checklist of the chrysidid wasps (Hymenoptera: Chrysididae) of Iran. Zootaxa, 3700 (1): 001–047.

It's a first starting point for the study of the Chrysidid Fauna of this country. In the article we list the historical known data and some new records collected by the authors or found in the European museums. The aim of this paper is to stimulate further researches in this field. The Chrysidid fauna of Iran is still poorly known and at least 400 species are expected to be distributed in the Country.

A first checklist of the Iranian Chrysididae is proposed. The list includes 184 species in 20 genera. Seventy species and genera Spinolia Dahlbom, 1854, Spintharina Semenov, 1892, Trichrysis Lichtenstein, 1876 are newly recorded from Iran. New combination is proposed for Chrysura laconiae (Arens, 2001), comb. nov. (from Chrysis) and Chrysura pyrogaster turca (Linsenmaier, 1997), comb. nov. (from Chrysis). New synonymy is proposed for Chrysura barbatula (Linsenmaier, 1968) = Chrysura barbatica Bohart, 1991, syn. nov. The status of Chrysis transcaspica Mocsáry, 1889 is resurrected. Historical data with the comments of current taxonomic position and the specific validity of some species are given.
