Apanteles ronaldnavarroi Fern dez-Triana, sp. n. (N=1)?Jose L. Fernandez-Triana et al. / ZooKeys 383: 1?65 (2014)leucostigmus species-group This group, by far the biggest in Mesoamerica, comprises 39 species purchase TN1 within this paper. It really is defined by a thick ovipositor (as thick or thicker than the width with the median flagellomeres, and with anterior width three.0?.0 ?its posterior width beyond the constriction), ovipositor sheaths 0.five?.1 ?as long as metatibia, propodeum with sturdy sculpture restricted to anterior half, the posterior half largely smooth; mesoscutellum with lateral face bearing a polished area 0.7 ?or more the height in the face, pterostigma and the majority of fore wing white or transparent, and mediotergite 1 widening towards posterior 0.7, then narrowing toward posterior margin. The group is supported by the Bayesian molecular analysis (PP: 0.74, Fig. 1). Hosts: Hesperiidae. Extensively distributed within the Neotropics; we’ve noticed lots of a lot more undescribed species in collections. This really is the only group exactly where we extensively applied molecular (i.e., barcoding) and biological (i.e., host records) characters within the key. Likewise, the species descriptions had been also simplified and only involve some morphological traits (plus full information on barcoding and host information). This was mostly as a consequence of the paucity of morphological characters that serve to distinguish different species. Relying solely on DNA barcoding and/or host data to describe and key species has been done ahead of in Braconidae (e.g., Butcher et al. 2012). On the other hand, we did some preliminary study of applying morphometrics to separate species, as well as the final results (unpublished) recommend that morphometrics may work for many, while not all, in the species within this group. We describe right here the species that have been located in ACG for the sake of completing its inventory of Apanteles. Important to species of your leucostigmus group The species Apanteles albinervis, included in this group due to its morphology, is only identified from the male holotype, and our essential is only to females. You can find no hosts or molecular data offered for the holotype, collected in “Mexico” in 1904. It truly is therefore not possible to key this species by any of your character systems made use of here. 1 ?two(1) ?3(2) Metatibia completely or mostly (>0.7) dark brown to black, with yellow to white commonly restricted to anterior 0.2 at most (seldom with pale region extending up to 0971-4065.82637 anterior 0.three of metatibia) (as in Figs 166 a, d) ………………………………….two Metatibia light yellow to orange-yellow from 0.4 to just about whole metatibia (as in Figs 197 c, 200c) …………………………………………………………………..26 Ovipositor sheaths at the least 1.0 ?as long as metatibia and 1.three ?so long as metafemur ……………………………………………………………………………………..three Ov.
