Key to species of Gauldiana 

1. Clypeus subtriangular, with lower lateral margin conspicuously concave ( Fig. 105 View Figure ). Mandible distinctly twisted. Female with first tergite rather strongly depressed, transversely oval in cross-section. Antenna entirely orange; flagellum weakly clavate, with about 19–21 flagellomeres, and the subapical flagellomere transverse ( Fig. 104 View Figure ). Head black with yellowish clypeus and orange marks near base of mandible ( Figs 105, 106 View Figure ); mesosoma orange with three black marks on mesoscutum ( Figs 37 View Figure , 106 View Figure ); metasoma behind first tergite brownish yellow ( Figs 37 View Figure , 109 View Figure ). Relatively large with body length about 5.0 mm and fore wing length 3.8–4.1 mm .................................................................... G. triangulata  sp. nov.

- Clypeus lenticular ( Figs 89 View Figure , 94 View Figure ). Mandible not twisted. First tergite more or less round in cross-section. Antenna entirely black, or pale basally and gradually darkening towards apex; flagellum filiform or clavate, usually with lesser number of flagellomeres ( Figs 88 View Figure , 95 View Figure , 99–101 View Figure ). Mesoscutum either orange or black, without clearly defined black anteromedian and lateral marks. Head orange to black. Small to medium-sized with body length 2.3–3.5 mm and fore wing length 2.1–3.0 mm............ 2

2. Mesosoma more or less entirely orange, sometimes with a weak reddish brown marking ( Figs 29 View Figure , 34 View Figure ). Fore wing with vein 2mcu interstitial or slightly postfurcal ( Fig. 19 View Figure ). Ovipositor weakly upcurved in basal 0.8 and strongly upcurved apically ( Figs 29 View Figure , 34 View Figure )................................................................................................. 3

- Mesosoma dark reddish brown to black, sometimes with reddish orange markings on pronotum, mesoscutum and mesopleuron ( Figs 30–33, 35, 36View FIGURES 27–31View FIGURES 32–37). Fore wing with vein 2m-cu interstitial to distinctly postfurcal. Ovipositor evenly upcurved over its entire length or strongly upcurved apically....................................................................... 4

- Head with at least lower face and genae orange or orange-brown, usually entire eye orbits orange ( Fig. 29 View Figure ). Mesosoma orange with reddish brown markings ( Fig. 29 View Figure ). Legs yellow but hind coxa usually darkened. Flagellum slightly clavate apically, with 16–17 flagellomeres ( Fig. 88 View Figure ). Ovipositor sheath about twice as long as hind tibia.................... G. arantia  sp. nov.

4. Antenna dark brown or black, flagellum short, distinctly clavate, with 13–14 flagellomeres ( Fig. 101 View Figure ). Ovipositor strongly and evenly upcurved in apical half, its sheath about as long as hind tibia ( Fig. 103 View Figure ). Malar space short, 0.4–0.5× basal mandibular width ( Fig. 101 View Figure )......................................................................... G. minuta  sp. nov.

- Antenna sometimes pale basally, flagellum longer, filiform or clavate, with 15–19 flagellomeres ( Figs 95 View Figure , 99, 100 View Figure ). Ovipositor weakly upcurved, sometimes with apex strongly upcurved, its sheath usually much longer than hind tibia. Malar space usually>0.5× basal mandibular width............................................................................ 5

5. Metasoma behind first tergite brown ( Fig. 32 View Figure ). Fore wing with pterostigma pale brown ( Fig. 32 View Figure ). Antenna uniformly brown or black ( Fig. 100 View Figure ). Ovipositor sheath 1.7–1.85× as long as hind tibia................................ G. kaweka  sp. nov.

- Metasoma dark brown to black. Fore wing with pterostigma brown to dark brown ( Figs 30, 31 View Figure , 35 View Figure ). Antenna black, or pale basally and darkening towards apex. Ovipositor length varied.................................................. 6

6. Basal part of propodeum longer than the apical area. Flagellum with 19 flagellomeres ( Fig. 36 View Figure ). Ovipositor short, its sheath 0.7–0.85× as long as hind tibia ( Fig. 36 View Figure ). Malar space half as long as basal mandibular width............ G. rotoitia  sp. nov.

- Basal part of propodeum equal to or shorter than the apical area. Flagellum with 16–18 flagellomeres. Ovipositor 1.0–2.0× as long as hind tibia. Malar space sometimes longer than basal mandibular width..................................... 7

7. Ovipositor sheath 1.7–2.0× as long as hind tibia ( Fig. 97 View Figure )...................................... G. aspiringa  sp. nov.

- Ovipositor sheath 1.0–1.4× as long as hind tibia ( Figs 31 View Figure , 35 View Figure )................................................... 8

8. Fore wing with vein R1 ending far short of apex. Mesosoma uniformly dark brown or black ( Fig. 31 View Figure ). Ovipositor sheath 1.0– 1.3× as long as hind tibia................................................................... G. dubia  sp. nov.

- Fore wing with vein R1 almost reaching apex ( Fig. 35 View Figure ). Mesosoma with profusion of orange markings on pronotum, mesoscutum and mesopleuron ( Fig. 35 View Figure ). Ovipositor sheath 1.4× as long as hind tibia......... G. postfurcalis (Khalaim)  , comb. nov.
