Name

Oberthuerella SaussureWikispecies linkPensoft Profile

Diagnosis

Oberthuerella can be readily distinguished from Xenocynips by having distinct metasomal terga (tergites 3–5) with the inter-tergal sutures not fused. Mesopleuron is also distinctly concave, the concavity forming an oblique, shallow femoral groove; the mesopleural impression is absent and the ventral part of the mesopleuron is without horizontal, linear sculpture; the metatibial spurs are subequal in length, elongate. The lack of a pronotal crest produced into a conspicuous tooth-like process easily distinguishes Oberthuerella from Tessmannella.

Distribution

Cameroon, Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe.

Biology

Unknown.
