Figs 90 This species is characterized by a very distinctive hypopygium with a relatively wide fold where no pleats are visibleovipositor sheaths very short and shaped as a broad spatula and ovipositor short and strongly curved downwards ; it is further distinguished by antenna much shorter than body, white pterostigma, white or transparent fore wing veins, and elongate glossa.

No molecular data available for this species. Cephoidea Cephidae stem sawflies. Face reddish-brown, clearly different aapnteles color from rest of head, which is dark brown to apatneles Fig.

All morphological traits mentioned above are similar to the leucostigmus species-group, and it might be that in the future this group is sunk within the much larger and widespread leucostigmus.

Tegula, humeral complex, meso- and metafemora dark, metatibia partiallyand usually mesotibia partially dark brown to black Figs a, c, fa, c, g ; T2 fully sculptured with longitudinal striation Figs fg ; ovipositor sheaths at most 1.

Fore wing length at most 2. Larger species, body length usually 2. This species was reared from Palpita venatalis inside of fallen Stemmadenia obovata Apocynaceae flowers, and from Cromarcha stroudagnesia mining in Tabebuia ochracea Bignoniaceae stems.

Mesoscutellum with non-polished area of lateral face with striae interrupted dorsally by a smooth area marking a clear separation from axilla axilla also with striated sculpture Fig.

Figs 56 Elachistidaespecimen with ACG database code: We will describe these species in subsequent papers on the ACG Microgastrinae. In Mesoamerica three species are included: Braconidae LatreilleSubfamilies 47, see text Synonyms Stenophasmidae Benoit, The Braconidae are a family of parasitoid wasps.


apnateles All the species in ACG are essentially fully sympatric to parapatric the case when two ecosystems intergrade. However, those characters are not universal within the genus, being absent in several species. Coloration especially legs tends to be darker than females, and mediotergite 2 is less transverse, i. For details on the exact color patterns on the body, we provide extensive illustrations for every species.

A total of 23 diagnostic characters in the barcoding region: During the last years more than two dozen new genera have been created as a result of those splitting efforts, but still more than one thousand described species belong to Apanteles Yu et al. Proportion of Lepidoptera families ap by species of Apanteles with known host records in Mesoamerica wpanteles source mainly from the ACG inventory.

MicroplitisProtapantelesProtomicroplitisUrogaster and Pseudapanteles. Scutoscutellar sulcus with 8 pits; fore wing with vein r 2. All coxae except for posterior 0.

Mediotergite 2 tends to be less transverse, and mediotergite 1 is rather parallel-sided. When those species are revised and published in their respective generic revisions, they will receive an appropriate formal scientific name. Milanion marciana and Quadrus cerialis ].

Apatneles attacks the four leafroller species known as pests of fruit crops in the Northwest. This group comprises two species, characterized by pterostigma mostly transparent with only thin brown borders, tegula and humeral complex yellow, all coxae dark brown to black, mediotergite 1 at least 2.

All coxae, profemur partially, and meso- and metafemora completely, dark brown to black Fig.

The key to species groups separate those species in the first four couplets. Metatibia almost entirely dark brown to black, with yellow to white coloration restricted to anterior 0. appanteles

apahteles Almost one quarter of the Apanteles species in Mesoamerica have a somewhat elongate glossa, although it is never as large and bilobate as in some other characteristic genera of Microgastrinae such as PseudapantelesPromicrogasteretc. Methods In this study, Mesoamerica is defined as the region from and including Mexico through Panama, and all the Caribbean islands, following Gauld ElachistidaeStenoma Janzen08 feeding on Clusia spp.

Nearly all of the ACG lowlands have been subjected to four centuries of light to intense cultivation, logging, burning, hunting, ranching, and other forms of habitat destruction, followed by explicit protection and restoration beginning in and intensifying after Janzenapannteles, This group comprises four species, characterized by extensive yellow coloration and usually orange marks on posterior 0.

All described species are from ACG, although we have seen other Neotropical species with similarly strong sculpture on mediotergites 1 and 2. However, in such a large assemblage of species there is likely to be considerable homoplasy and thus in some couplets we had to use logical characters e.

Another 37 new species found to belong to this group are only described using a simplified set of 10 characters and 46 characters-states, and are most definitively defined by the combination of their barcodes and their hosts.
