We have examined thousands of specimens from the world fauna of Microgastrinaeand have found that the only reliable character is the number and density of setae fringing on the median portion of the vannal lobe.

Megalodontesidae Pamphiliidae web-spinning sawflies. Through the evolutionary history of being used by the wasps, these viruses apparently have become so modified, they appear unlike any other known viruses today. 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 aapnteles strongly curved downwards apantelex it is further distinguished by antenna much shorter than body, white pterostigma, white or transparent fore wing veins, and elongate glossa.

The species Apanteles sanctivincenti Appanteles, was described from a single male, but the type has never been found in the BMNH and is probably lost Gavin Broad, personal communication. Some differences in host ranges and geographical distribution have also been observed, but no comprehensive revision of the data is available yet.
The host larva’s remains are usually visible as a black, shriveled mass near the parasitoid cocoons. Replacement name for Urogaster solitarius Ashmead, Fore wing with length of vein r 2.

Metasoma entirely black Fig. ElachistidaeAntaeotricha similisStenoma sp.
Body length at most 3. 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. Summarizing, our definition of Apanteles sensu strictoas used in this study is based on the following characters: CrambidaeDiacme sp.
It is likely to represent a derived species-group within Apantelesor it might be placed in another genus. Thus we consider here Apanteles albinervican Shenefelt, an invalid replacement name for Apanteles albinervis Cameron, and reinstate the latter name. As cocoon aanteles often appears a species-level characteristic, it is shown for each species when possible Figs — Synonymized by Muesebeck A few notable examples are detailed here.
CrambidaeOmiodes cuniculalisPrenesta Janzen We think that the best approach at present is to consider Iconella as a valid genus — not a junior synonym of Apanteles.
Metatibia color outer face: Endoparasitoid species often display elaborate physiological adaptations to enhance larval survival within the host, such as the co-option of apaneles viruses for compromising host immune defenses.
Apanteles – Wikipedia
Based on morphology alone, Apanteles esthercentenoae is very similar to Apanteles thurberiae see comments under that species.
Pterostigma mostly transparent or white, with thin brown borders; and all coxae dark brown to black. Figs 32 Only for one species there are barcodes available, therefore more data will be needed for molecular analysis of this group, which is considered here as just a interim arrangement of species. T1 mostly sculptured, at least on posterior half Figs 68gf ; T1 more or less parallel-sided for its entire length, or parallel-sided for 0.
All the species in ACG apantlees essentially fully sympatric to parapatric the case when two ecosystems intergrade.
Most of the available host records are from miners. Apanteles anapiedrae does not resemble typical species of Apanteles because of its propodeal areola and unpleated hypopygium.
Because of that, the description is incomplete, and it is impossible to key it out based on morphological characters only. This is a somewhat artificial group, not supported by molecular data, although the two component species aanteles some morphological resemblance as well as similar hosts.
All coxae entirely white, yellow or bright orange, at most with small brown spot on anterior 0. Cephise aelius or Phocides spp.
