However, no effort was made to study specimens representing undescribed species from areas outside ACG, areas that will certainly contain hundreds of other species of Apanteles as well as many of those in ACG.

There is no suggestion that this species occurs in ACG.

Interestingly, none of these four species seem to be closely related. Outside ACG, there is not enough data to assess if narrow host ranges per microgastrine wasp species is a widespread phenomenon although unpublished evidence suggest that this might be the case and there is no reason to think that ACG Apanteles are abnormal.

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.

It is worth mentioning that Ashmead All described species are from ACG, although we have seen undescribed species from other Neotropical areas. To further complicate things, many species have never been assigned to a particular species-group e.

We hope that this study will apantelew a foundation upon which future studies of tropical Apanteles and other microgastrine genera can be based. We also calculated and compared many ratios between linear dimensions of structures morphometric taxonomya common practice in the taxonomy of many groups of parasitoid wasps Baur and Leuenbergerand references cited there.

Even if the parasitoid has already emerged from the cocoon, its remnants provide evidence of a successful attack.

Because that is beyond the scope of this paper, we describe the species under Apanteles — the best arrangement at the moment. We dedicate this species to Alvaro Ugalde in recogniton of his diligent efforts in founding and guiding the National Park System s Costa Rica. The species are solitary parasitoids.

Most hosts species belong to just three families: Papp transferred the species from Apanteles to Illidops in his treatment of the European fauna, when he adopted the then recent reclassification of Microgastrinae by Mason Interspecific barcode variation can be used as part of a suite of characters for the discovery and description of new species e.
