dc.description.abstract "The subfamily Diapriinae (Diapriidae: Proctotrupoidea) in the New World is reviewed at the supra specific level. Three tribes and 52 genera are recognized. Sixteen new genera are proposed: Apopria (Diapriini), Avoca (Diapriini), Chilomicrus (Spilomicrini), Cruzium (Diapriini), Doddius (Spilomicrini), Eladio (Diapriini), Epomium (Spilomicrini), Ferrugenus (Spilomicrini), Hansona (Diapriini), Leucopria (Diapriini), Mimopriella (Diapriini), Omopria (Diapriini), Ortona (Psilini), Peckidium (incertae sedis) Psychopria (Diapriini), and Turripria (Diapriini). The following new species are described: Apopria coveri [female] (USA), Asolenopsia gibba [female] (Costa Rica), Avoca collaris [female] (USA), Chilomicrus pecki [male] (Chile), Cruzium amphorale [female] (Costa Rica), Eladio cruzi [female] (Costa Rica), Epomium cicatrix [female] (Chile), Ferrugenus chilensis [female] (Chile), Hansona pauli [female] (Costa Rica), Leucopria cylindricornis [female] (Ecuador, Costa Rica), Omopria brevipalpis [female] (Brazil), Ortona hansoni [female] (Costa Rica), Peckidium enigmaticum [female] (Antilles, Central and South America, West Africa, Philippines), Psychopria hoguei [male] (Costa Rica), Turripria woldai [female] (Panama). New generic synonymies are proposed: Acanthopria Ashmead (= Adelioneiva Fischer), Asolenopria Kieffer (= Euplacopria Ferrière), Bruchopria Kieffer (= Aulatopria Brèthes), Doliopria Kieffer (= Martinica Risbec), Megaplastopria Ashmead (= Xyalopria Kieffer), Notoxoides Ashmead (= Psilogasteroides Brèthes), Pentapria Kieffer (= Antipapria Fabritius, Bakeria Kieffer, Plutopria Kieffer, Spilomicrinus Ogloblin), Spilomicrus Westwood (= Hoplopria Ashmead, Linkiola Kieffer), Szelenyiopria Fabritius (= Gymnopria Loiácono). New combinations are proposed: Aulatopria tucumana Brèthes to Bruchopria, Bakeria rugosa Dodd to Doddius, Gymnopria lucens Loiácono to Szelenyiopria, Mimopria pentatoma Borgmeier and Mimopria splendens Borgmeier to Mimopriella, and Xanthopria nitida Brues to Acanthopria. The 52 genera are keyed (keys in both English and Spanish); for each genus the synonymies, diagnoses, descriptions, recognition and relationships, distribution, and biology are given. Twelve plates with 107 figures are included"--P. 3. en_US

  • Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History
    The Bulletin, published continuously since 1881, consists of longer monographic volumes in the field of natural sciences relating to zoology, paleontology, and geology. Current numbers are published at irregular intervals. The Bulletin was originally a place to publish short papers, while longer works appeared in the Memoirs. However, in the 1920s, the Memoirs ceased and the Bulletin series began publishing longer papers. A new series, the Novitates , published short papers describing new forms.
