A little while ago Jorge sent me some specimens that he had collected in Portugal last year. Most were tachinids but I’d also requested any evanioids that he might find and he obliged with a lot of very small evaniids.
I have just had a chance to work on them and they break down into 2 species, both of which seem to be new to Portugal: Zeuxevania splendidula and Brachygaster minuta. Both species seem to be found across southern Europe so their discovery in Portugal isn’t surprising – they have probably been under recorded and overlooked until now.
Many thanks again for Jorge for his generous gift
