oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Two African species of Eretmocerus Haldeman (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae)

Volume 33, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



In this paper the specific characters of Eretmocerus diversiciliatus Silvestri are clarified and E. nairobii spec. nov. from Kenya is descriptionbed. Eretmocerus diversiciliatus Silv. was descriptionbed from Lagos, Nigeria, in 1914. Since then numerous Mediterranean and African specimens of Eretmocerus have been erroneously determined as diversiciliatus. The following descriptionption of this species will, it is hoped, prevent further misidentifications.
