Early widening towards posterior margin. Mediotergite 1 sculpture: mostly sculptured, excavated area

Early widening towards posterior margin. Mediotergite 1 sculpture: mostly sculptured, excavated area centrally with transverse striation inside and/or a polished knob centrally on posterior margin of mediotergite. Mediotergite 2 width at posterior margin/length: 3.2?.5. Mediotergite 2 sculpture: more or less fully sculptured, with longitudinal striation. Outer margin of hypopygium: with a wide, medially folded, transparent, semi esclerotized area; usually with 4 or more pleats. Ovipositor thickness: about same width throughout its length. Ovipositor sheaths length/metatibial length: 1.0?.1. Length of fore wing veins r/2RS: 1.7?.9. Length of fore wing veins 2RS/2M: 0.9?.0. Length of fore wing veins 2M/(RS+M)b: 0.9?.0. Pterostigma length/width: 2.1?.5. Point of insertion of vein r in pterostigma: about 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: distinctly but not strongly angled. Male. Similar to female, except for shape of mediotergite 1 which is more rectangular, and coloration of meso and metafemur which tends to be darker in some specimens. Molecular data. Sequences in BOLD: 16, barcode compliant sequences: 15, haplotypes: 2. Biology/ecology. Gregarious. Mostly Biotin-VAD-FMK site recorded from Lepidoptera species on stored products ts cosmopolitan distribution is likely due to human transfer from an unknown source. Hosts: Gelechiidae, Lasiocampidae, Lecithoceridae, Lymantriidae, Pyralidae, Thaumetopoeidae, Tineidae, Tortricidae, Zygaenidae. The correctness of some of these host records is questionable because it is unlikely that a single species has such a wide host range. Distribution. Cosmopolitan, this species has been recorded from 50 countries in all continents but there is no suggestion that it occurs in ACG.Review of Apanteles sensu stricto (Hymenoptera, Braconidae, Microgastrinae)…Comments. The geographical coverage of the barcoded Pristinamycin IA structure specimens includes Canada and New Zealand, but all sequences are almost identical. The only exceptions are some extralimital specimens (British Columbia, Canada) which seem to represent a different species based on body color and the barcode of one specimen. Because those specimens are not from Mesoamerica, they will be dealt with elsewhere.
