About this book

Language: English

ZooKeys 493: Afrotropical Cynipoidea (Hymenoptera) constitutes the first part of the initiative to document Afrotropical hymenopteran diversity and provides a current synthesis of Afrotropical cynipoid systematics, including an overview of biological associations, and the first key to all cynipoid genera of the Afrotropical region. The Afrotropical Cynipoidea are represented by 306 described species and 54 genera in four families: Cynipidae, Figitidae, Liopteridae and Ibaliidae, the latter represented by a single introduced species. As part of this overview assessment seven new genus-level synonymies, one genus resurrected from synonymy, 54 new combinations, one combination reinstated, and one new replacement name are presented. Interactive Lucid Phoenix and Lucid matrix identification keys are available online on WaspWeb. The development of this resource is aimed to facilitate future research on this ecologically and agriculturally important superfamily of wasps.
