About this book

Language: Chinese with English summary and scientific nomenclature

This volume deals with the proctotrupid fauna of China, a Hymenopteran superfamily. It consists of two parts, a general part and a taxonomic part. The general part divided into five chapters, while the taxonomic part contains five parts that correspond to the five families of the superfamily proctotrupoidea from China.

In the first chapter of the general part the nomenclatural change between the name Proctotrupoidea and Serphoidea is discussed. In the second chapter the phylogeny position and the members of the superfamily are summarized. In the third chapter, the morphology, biology and biogeography of the superfamily is reviewed. In the fourth chapter, keys to families and introductions of each family are listed. In the fifth chapter, The geochronology of the superfamily is discussed. Proctotrupoidea, which currently includes eleven families, is the oldest superfamily in Hymenoptera. All the ten families have fossils. Seven families of them contain extinct and extant species, another four families are completely extinct. A catalogue of world fossil species is listed in this book, and where fossils originate from China, information on locality is provided.
In the taxonomic part, the family Proctotrupidae is grouped into 19 genera and 365 species, of which one is a new genus, one is a new species group, 268 are new species, and 2 species group and 4 species are new to China.
