French Guianan evanioids

December 4th, 2010 3 comments

Today I had a request for some specimens of Evaniidae from Ricardo Kawada, a PhD student and researcher in Sao Paulo. This forced me to go over my French Guianan evanoids and I thought that I would take some photos while I was at it:

* many thanks to Ricardo Kawada & David Smith for help with the identifications.

Foenomorpha senlura (Cenocoeliinae, Braconidae)

I have extracted a few evanoid-like braconids from the recent French Guianan batch and amongst the Cenocoeliinae I found a few of these, which I didn’t think was related but Yves Braet (an expert on French Guianan braconids) suggested Foenomorpha and after a bit of Googling I found a key (by Yves) that suggests that this is Foenomorpha senlura – it feels amazing to get a species-level identification for a neotropical wasp :D
