Diagnosis. Species distinguishable in Reunion by the shape of petiole (generic characteristic): smooth, without glymma and with the sterno-tergal suture on the lateral side.

Description. Wahl (1987).

Biological notes. Twenty-three host records on Pyralidae , Noctuidae , Tortricidae , Gelechiidae , Tineidae and Yponomeutidae .

Comments. Venturia canescens is a well-known model for many parasitoid workers. It is often associated with pests of stored products and widely distributed throughout the world. Its presence in Reunion is therefore not surprising, but the precise origin of the specimens housed at MNHN is unclear.

Distribution records. Reunion (new record). Nearly cosmopolitan, reported in Africa from Maghreb to South Africa.

Material examined. 10 Ƥ Reunion, leg. Institut Scientifique de Madagascar, locality and date of collection unknown.
