Name

Lytopylus flavicalcar (Enderlein) comb. n.Wikispecies linkPensoft Profile

Description

Body length 8.2 – 9.5 mm. Ovipositor length 9.0 – 10.5 mm. Gena rounded or with an obtuse angle posterolaterally. Longitudinal groove on interantennal prominence absent. Protuberances on occiput absent. Propodeum mostly smooth, lacking areolae. Notauli absent, or indicated by a weak smooth medio-posterior depression. Posterior margin of syntergum 2+3 straight. Median syntergite 2 + 3 smooth, lacking microsculpture. Forewing mostly or entirely infuscate. Color as in Figs 8, 9. Color variation: I have only included specimens here that are colored almost exactly as is the holotype. There are many other specimens from Costa Rica (INBio) that seem structurally to be very similar but differ primarily in that the hind femur is completely melanic. These may or may not be conspecific.
