Labels: 1. San Gerardo, Sitio Argentina, 28 Jul-3 Aug/2007. 2. DHJPAR0027484.Review of Apanteles sensu stricto (Hymenoptera, Braconidae, Microgastrinae)…Description. Female. Body color: body mostly dark except for some sternites which may be pale. Antenna color: scape and/or pedicel pale, flagellum dark. Coxae color (pro-, meso-, metacoxa): pale, pale, pale. Femora color (pro-, meso-, metafemur): pale, pale, mostly pale but posterior 0.2 or less dark. Tibiae color (pro-, meso-, metatibia): pale, pale, mostly pale but with posterior 0.2 or less dark. Tegula and humeral complex color: both dark. Pterostigma color: dark. Fore wing veins color: mostly dark (a few veins may be unpigmented). Antenna length/body length: antenna about as long as body (head to apex of metasoma); if slightly shorter, at least extending beyond anterior 0.7 metasoma length. Body in lateral view: not distinctly flattened dorso entrally. Body Linaprazan web Length (head to apex of metasoma): 2.3?.4 mm. Fore wing length: 2.7?.8 mm. Ocular cellar line/posterior ocellus diameter: 2.0?.2. Interocellar distance/posterior ocellus diameter: 1.7?.9. Antennal flagellomerus 2 length/width: 2.9?.1. Antennal flagellomerus 14 length/ width: 1.7?.9. Length of flagellomerus 2/length of flagellomerus 14: 2.0?.2. Tarsal claws: simple. Metafemur length/width: 3.0?.1. Metatibia inner spur length/ metabasitarsus length: 0.4?.5. Anteromesoscutum: mostly with deep, dense punctures (separated by less than 2.0 ?its maximum diameter). Mesoscutellar disc: mostly punctured. Number of pits in scutoscutellar sulcus: 5 or 6. Maximum height of mesoscutellum lunules/maximum height of lateral face of mesoscutellum: 0.4?.5. Propodeum areola: completely defined by carinae, including transverse carina extending to spiracle. Propodeum background sculpture: mostly sculptured. Mediotergite 1 length/width at posterior margin: 3.2?.4. Mediotergite 1 shape: mostly parallel ided for 0.5?.7 of its length, then narrowing posteriorly so mediotergite anterior width >1.1 ?posterior width. Mediotergite 1 sculpture: with some Biotin-VAD-FMK site sculpture near lateral margins and/or posterior 0.2?.4 of mediotergite. Mediotergite 2 width at posterior margin/length: 4.0?.3. Mediotergite 2 sculpture: mostly smooth. Outer margin of hypopygium: with a medially folded, transparent, semi esclerotized area; with 0? pleats visible. Ovipositor thickness: anterior width at most 2.0 ?posterior width (beyond ovipositor constriction). Ovipositor sheaths length/metatibial length: 0.4?.5. Length of fore wing veins r/2RS: 1.4?1.6. Length of fore wing veins 2RS/2M: 1.1?.3. Length of fore wing veins 2M/ (RS+M)b: 0.9?.0. Pterostigma length/width: 3.1?.5. Point of insertion of vein r in pterostigma: clearly beyond half way point length of pterostigma. Angle of vein r with fore wing anterior margin: more or less perpendicular to fore wing margin. Shape of junction of veins r and 2RS in fore wing: strongly angulated, sometimes with a knob. Male. Unknown. Molecular data. Sequences in BOLD: 3, barcode compliant sequences: 3. Biology/ecology. Malaise-trapped. Distribution. Costa Rica, ACG. Etymology. We dedicate this species to Carlos Z��iga in recognition of his diligent efforts for the ACG Programa de Sectores.Jose L.
