New Chrysididae described in 2013

Postby Euchroeus » 25 Dec 2013 13:08

Hallo everyone,

fifteen species of Chrysididae were described in 2013, of which only one from Europe.

A special mention for the new genus Oligogaster Solimam & Kimsey characterized by the only two visible metasomal terga, four visible sterna and edentate tarsal claws. The discovery of a new chrysidid wasp with two visible metasomal terga in the Palaearctic region, where all previously known chrysidids are distinguished by 3–5 visible terga, is extraordinary. Only Allocoeliini, a monogeneric tribe occuring in southern Africa, are known to have this reduced tergal morphology.

New taxa:
