Ordo: Hymenoptera
Familia: Braconidae

Name

Psyttoma van Achterberg & Li gen. n.Wikispecies linkZooBank linkPensoft Profile

Etymology

The name is a combination of the generic names Psyttalia Walker and Phaedrotoma Foerster, 1862, because it combines features of both genera. Gender: feminine.

Type species

Opius latilabris Chen & Weng, 2005.

Diagnosis

Hypopygium of female distinctly acute apically and about 0.3 times as long as metasoma; labrum slanted backwards, leaving a large space below clypeus (Fig. 9); veins 2-SR+R and SC+R1 of hind wing of male strongly widened (Fig. 13); precoxal sulcus smooth; hind femur 2–3 times as long as wide (Fig. 11); hind tibia without carinula basally; scutellum convex medially and depressed medio-posteriorly, distinctly protruding above level of mesoscutum (Fig. 5); propodeum without median carina or areola; second metasomal segment 1.2 times longer than third tergite (Fig. 4); spiracle of second tergite distinctly removed from apex of first tergite (Fig. 4).

Notes

The genus will run in the key to world genera of Opiinae by Wharton (1997)[1] to the genera Psyttalia Walker and Opius Wesmael (part with normal mandible; = Phaedrotoma). Because of the sharp pointed hypopygium it seems closer to Psyttalia, but it does not fit in any one of the genera and differs in having a medio-posterior depression of the mesoscutum, the second metasomal tergite longer than the third tergite, the precoxal sulcus smooth, the scutellum protruding dorsally, the hind wing narrowed and vein m-cu of the hind wing present as a faintly pigmented trace. The new genus can be separated from both genera as follows:
