Gnathochorisis laticincta ( Cresson, 1868)  comb. nov.

Tryphon laticinctus Cresson, 1868: 36  –37

Blapticus laticinctus ( Cresson, 1868) Townes & Townes 1966 

The species was originally described as Tryphon laticinctus ( Cresson 1868)  from the surroundings of Cordova (Córdoba), state Veracruz, Mexico, from a single female specimen stored in the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia (USA), and the male of this species is still unknown. Townes & Townes (1966) considered this species within the genus Blapticus Förster. As was mentioned above, the genus Blapticus was synonymized under Symplecis Förster ( Rossem 1981)  , but although some Palaearctic Blapticus species were transferred to Gnathochorisis  , B. laticinctus  was retained as a Symplecis  species ( Yu et al. 2012). According to the species description, it does not belong to the genus Symplecis  . Such combination of characters as a long ovipositor equal to the length of the first metasomal segment, well developed propodeal carination forming distinct dorsolateral apophyses, and robust legs with swollen hind femora ( Cresson 1868), are evidence that it is a representative of Gnathochorisis  , and this species should obviously be considered there.
