Notauli well-impressed, smooth without crenulae, or with one or two crenulae restricted to extreme anterior apex along border of mesoscutum. Posterior margin of syntergum 2+3 straight. Median syntergite 2 + 3 mostly smooth except for weak striae anteromedially. Forewing clear except base slightly infuscate. Color as in Figs 23, 24.

Biology

All five rearings are from Episimus Brown002 (Tortricidae, Olethreutinae), a relatively common solitary leaf webber feeding on the shrubs Vismia baccifera and Vismia billbergiana (Clusiaceae) that occur throughout disturbed ACG rain forest sites (150+ caterpillar rearings). However, all five wasp rearings are from a batch of Episimus Brown002 larvae collected in late April and early May in just one intermediate elevation site on the very wet Caribbean slopes of Volcan Rincon de la Vieja in Sector Rincon Rain Forest.

Etymology

Lytopylus rebeccashapleyae is named in honor of Rebecca Shapley of Mountain View, California, who has enthusiastically supported the conservation of the ACG forest occupied by this parasitoid wasp.
