About this book

Language: English

The Chrysididae, commonly known as cuckoo wasps or goldwasps, are a cosmo­politan family and have the greatest diversity in the Palaearctic Region. The present paper presents an annotated checklist of the Chinese Chrysididae. The list includes 188 species and subspe­cies in twenty-three genera of five subfamilies. Four species are proposed as new combinations: Hedychridium cupreum asianum (Linsenmaier, 1997), Philoctetes deauratus (Mocsáry, 1914), Ph. mordvilkoi (Semenov-Tian-Shanskij, 1932), and Pseudomalus hypocritus (du Buysson, 1893). Two species are revali­dated: Chrysis consobrina Mocsáry, 1889, and Philoctetes mongolicus (du Buysson, 1901). Historical data with comments on the current taxonomic position, and the pictures of sixty-five types are also given. This checklist is a part of a series studying the chrysidid fauna of the Palaearctic Regions in the World.
