It is followed by keys to species within every species-group the groups arranged in alphabetical order. There was only one described species recorded from Costa Rica, 19 from Mesoamerica, 86 from the Neotropical region, and worldwide Yu et al.
Braconid Wasp, Apanteles sp.
Apanteles balthazari Ashmead, Cephise aelius or Phocides spp. Metatibia with inner spur 1. John Horstman,based on this photo].
Apanteles Rodriguez27 Smith et al. A total of 22 diagnostic characters in the barcoding region: Larger species, body length usually 2. Maximum width of T1 at about 0.
Maximum height of mesoscutellum lunules 0. Another Mesoamerican species, Apanteles aidalopezae shares that combination of characters, but can be separate from the carlosrodriguezi species-group because of its white pterostigma, transparent or white fore wing veins, and rather elongate glossa. Mason described Iconella as a new genus based on the sinuous vein cu-a in the hind wing as a plesiomorphic character that suggests its unique status among similar genera.
However, morphology, host data and DNA barcoding Fig. Apanteles Rodriguez18 Smith et al. Scape almost completely dark brown Fig.
Widely distributed in the Neotropics; we have seen many appanteles undescribed species in collections. ElachistidaeChoreutidaeCrambidae. T2 width at posterior margin 3.
Because that is beyond the scope of this paper, we describe the species under Apanteles — the best arrangement at the moment. HesperiidaePyrrhopyge s. Key to species of the carpatus group 1 T2 length at least 2.
Parasitoid of cutworm Apanteles sp. 
Cosmopolitan, this species has been recorded from 50 countries in all continents but there is no suggestion that it occurs in ACG. Urbanus albimargoand rarely from Achalarus toxeusCogia calchas and Thessia jalapus. Apanteles deplanatus Muesebeck, CrambidaeDiacme sp. The senior author dedicates this species to Dicky Yu CNC, Ottawa, Canada in appreciation of his support, and for creating the extremely valuable tool that is Taxapad.
Profemur partially, and meso- and metafemora completely, dark brown to black; ovipositor relatively thick anterior width 2. But for the vast majority of species especially all of the ones reared in ACG the records are accurate, — and comprehensive enough to draw conclusions on host relationships at a higher taxon level.
This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. As in female, except for darker metasomal terga. T1 length at most 1. Barcoding region with different nucleotides at positions mentioned in first half of couplet].
This variation is closely related to the host species upon which the wasp deposits its egg. Ovipositor sheaths at most 1. A total of five diagnostic characters in the barcoding region: Meso- and metatrochantellus dark brown to black Fig.
Most species kill their hosts, though some cause the hosts to become sterile and less active. If this pattern proves to be commonplace worldwide, it will have a strong influence on biological control and on biodiversity studies e. Apanteles Rodriguez84 Smith et al. When those species are revised and published in their respective generic revisions, they will receive an appropriate formal scientific name.
Apanteles – Wikipedia
We have no reason to suspect that this species occurs in ACG. Iconella albinervis Tobias, stat rev.
Head with gena partially white Figs a, d. The presence and abundance of Apanteles can be determined by examining leaf shelters of leafroller larvae in late May and again in late July. T3 completely, and most of laterotergites 1—3, sternites, and hypopygium dark brown to black Figs a, c, f ; fore and middle legs yellow-white, metacoxa yellow-white except for anterior 0.
Molecular analysis has revealed a large number of morphologically cryptic apannteles, often possessing very subtle morphological differences that we found to correlate with ecological and host data.
It is worth mentioning that Ashmead Antenna shorter, its length at most 0. Some species are gregarious and some are solitary parasitoids.
