Description. FEMALE (habitus: Figs 89View FIGURES 85 – 90, 91View FIGURES 91 – 96). Length = 1.9–4.6 mm. Head. Face ( Fig. 85View FIGURES 85 – 90) with clypeus more or less uniformly, longitudinally, finely striate to strigose, and finely, obliquely, coriaceous-alutaceous for at least half distance to eye and then meshlike coriaceous or only very shallowly coriaceous-reticulate adjacent to eye, but with parascrobal region vertically striate-alutaceous, scrobal depression meshlike reticulate, and supraclypeal region meshlike reticulate to partly coriaceous ( Fig. 88View FIGURES 85 – 90); malar space without malar sulcus ( Fig. 88View FIGURES 85 – 90), though sometimes with line of finer sculpture extending between lower orbit and oral margin at posterior limit of malar depression, and 0.37–0.57× eye height ( Fig. 85View FIGURES 85 – 90) and 0.61–0.97× eye width. Antenna ( Fig. 85View FIGURES 85 – 90) with scape yellowish or with up to about apical two-thirds brown, and pedicel and flagellum variably yellowish-brown to dark brown.

Mesosoma. Tegula yellow to brown. Pronotum with collar abruptly angled relative to collum ( Fig. 91View FIGURES 91 – 96), but not raised or carinate anteriorly, and laterally shallowly sinuate ( Fig. 90View FIGURES 85 – 90). Mesopectus ( Fig. 92View FIGURES 91 – 96) with short, horizontal ridge or at least abrupt angulation at level of base of mesocoxa, but carinate anterior margin of femoral depression not continuous ventrally anterior to mesocoxa and setal line extending close to anterior angle of mesocoxa. Fore wing with 1–6 setae within costal cell ventroapically; disc varying from uniformly setose beyond broad, oblique speculum extending to about middle of marginal vein or middle of stigmal vein ( Fig. 93View FIGURES 91 – 96), to essentially glabrous to or beyond level of stigmal vein ( Fig. 94View FIGURES 91 – 96), though sometimes with variably large setal region that does not extend posteriorly to medial fold proximal to stigma or stigmal vein; admarginal area with 7–19 setae usually arranged in 1 or 2 irregular rows; marginal fringe usually complete though sometimes absent; smv: mv: pmv: stv about: 3.3–4.3: 2.1–3.1: 1.3–2.0: 1.0. Legs ( Fig. 91View FIGURES 91 – 96) with femora brown and more northern specimens usually with noticeably darker, variably broad orange to dark brown band on at least meso- and/or metatibiae, though southern specimens usually with tibiae more uniformly yellowish-white to white. Propodeum ( Figs 95, 96View FIGURES 91 – 96) with callus uniformly convex, without oblique carina lateral of spiracle; plical carina variable, sometimes with a complete, sinuate carina between basal plical depression and nucha ( Fig. 96View FIGURES 91 – 96), but usually less evident as a fine, raised line partly between plical depression and nucha and/or only a short carina within nuchal furrow, and sometimes completely absent; plical region with median carina extending to nucha, but more or less uniformly convex or with variably developed transverse angulation or ridge recurved anteromesally from plical depression so as to delineate transverse, depressed anterior panel at most as long as posterior panel and at least slightly shorter than nucha.

Metasoma. Gaster ( Figs 89View FIGURES 85 – 90, 91View FIGURES 91 – 96) usually not contrasting conspicuously in color with mesosoma, variably dark brown to almost black with metallic lustres dorsobasally on Gt 1 and basolaterally on other terga, though sometimes more reddish- or orangey-brown with limited metallic lustres; lanceolate, length about 2.2–2.9× as long as wide (typically more elongate-slender in air-dried specimens with collapsed gaster); Gt 2 and Gt 3 with posterior margins variably distinctly emarginate, but at most with very short, white, mediolongitudinal line posteriorly (though critical-point dried specimen with inflated gaster usually with one or more of Gt 2 –Gt 4 impressed mediolongitudinally); syntergum at least about as long as wide and with about apical half setose; cercus conical but short, not distinctly digitiform.

MALE ( Fig. 86View FIGURES 85 – 90). Similar to female except as follows: gaster with large, subbasal, yellowish region; fore wing with up to 9 setae ventroapically in costal cell, disc always extensively setose except for oblique speculum extending to base of stigmal vein, and marginal vein sometimes only about 2 x as long as stigmal vein.

Type information. Crawford (1908) listed only Mineola (Ƥ) and Waco (3), Texas, as localities when he described C. hunteri  , but specimens in the USNM from Palestine, Terrell and Waco, Texas, as well as Alexandria, Forbing and Marksville, Louisiana, are labelled as paratypes. Burks (1975) stated that the two female paralectotypes of Eurydinoteloides orontas (Walker 1847)  were not conspecific with the lectotype. I examined all three type specimens and one that bears a Burks identification label with “ Catolaccus  ” is a small J. hunteri  female, which I labelled as such.

Distribution. Map 4. Specimens examined from Hawaii result from the intentional introduction of J. hunteri  from Guatemala in 1934 and 1937 for biocontrol of the pepper weevil, Anthonomus eugenii Cano (Clausen 1978)  . Cross and Mitchell (1969) previously compared the then known distributions of J. hunteri  and J. grandis  .

MAP 4. Distribution of Jaliscoa hunteri (Crawford)  and Jaliscoa vulgaris (Ashmead)  .

Biology. Noyes (2012) listed three species of Bruchidae  , 20 species of Curculionidae  ( Coleoptera  ) and one species of Gelechiidae  ( Lepidoptera  ), Pectinophora  (= Platyedra  ) gossypiella (Saunders)  , as hosts. The latter record is based on Rude (1937), who reared J. hunteri  from cotton blooms and squares along with the boll weevil, A. grandis  , and the pink bollworm, P. gossypiella  . Based on numbers of each species reared he suggested that J. hunteri  was probably a parasitoid of both cotton pests; however, there has never been a documented rearing of J. hunteri  from P. gossypiella  . There is an extensive literature of J. hunteri  as a primary ectoparasitoid of the larvae of boll weevil and the pepper weevil, A. eugenii Cano  , among other listed hosts (see references in Noyes (2012), including Rodríguez-Leyva et al. (2000 )).

Based on material examined, anomalous rearing records include a Cecidomyiidae  ( Diptera  ) gall on Eugenia buxifolia  , Liriomyza  sp. ( Diptera  : Agromyzidae  ) on cotton, and a leafminer on Magnolia  . New host records include— Curculionidae  : Anthonomus convictus Gates, A. hunteri Burke & Cate, A.  mexicanus Boheman; Brachycerus ornatus Westwood  ; Epimechus canoides Fall  (?); Miarus hispidus Bovie  (?).

New plant associates include— Asteraceae  : Baccharis  sp. Cactaceae  : Opuntia engelmannii Salm-Dyck.  Campanulaceae  : Labelia sp. Euphorbiaceae  : Croton lindeimeri (Engelman & Gray)  . Fabaceae  : Mimosa albida Humbolt & Bonpland ex Wildenow.  Magnoliaceae  : Magnolia  sp. Malvaceae  : Cienfuegosia rosei Fryxell  ; Hampea longipes  Miranda, H. rovirosae Standley, H.  trilobata Standley; Heliocarpus palmeri S. Watson  ; Sida aggregata C. Presl  ; Sphaeralcea angustifolia (Cavanilles)  , S. laxa Wooton & Standley, S.  orcuttii Rose. Myrtaceae  : Eugenia foetida Persoon  (= E. buxifolia  ). Rosaceae  : Fragaria  × ananassa Duchesne; Prunus serotina Ehrhart.  Solanaceae  : Solanum elaeagnifolium Cavanilles, S.  elegans Dunal, S. torreyi A. Gray. 

Discussion. Gahan (1951) originally synonymized J. townsendi  under J. hunteri  . Burks (1954: 11) resurrected the name because he considered that there “are small but consistent differences” between the two, although he also stated that it “may eventually be shown that the two are geographical subspecies, rather than species”. Burks (1954: 12) also recognized J. vulgaris  , although stating “longer series of specimens might show that this is a subspecies of the hunteri  complex”. He differentiated females of both J. townsendi  and J. vulgaris  from J. hunteri  by the upper surface of the fore wing being setose around the apex of the stigmal vein compared to asetose, and the “lateral folds of the propodeum” (= plicae) being interrupted in the middle compared to complete in J. hunteri  . For the sake of discussion, I designate specimens identified as J. hunteri  , J. townsendi  and J. vulgaris  as the hunteri  -complex. Most females of the hunteri  -complex from the Neotropical region, or at least south of Mexico, have the fore wings comparatively extensively setose, including the type series of J. townsendi  and J. vulgaris  ( Fig. 110View FIGURES 105 – 110). The fore wings have a marginal fringe and typically are setose beyond an oblique speculum that extends to about the middle of the marginal vein or even beyond to about the middle of the stigmal vein. Most females from north of Mexico have the fore wings essentially glabrous to or beyond the apex of the stigmal vein, including sometimes entirely lacking a marginal fringe ( Fig. 94View FIGURES 91 – 96). However, there appears to be all intermediates between the two extremes and some females from north of Mexico have as extensively setose fore wings ( Fig. 93View FIGURES 91 – 96) as typical southern females ( Fig. 110View FIGURES 105 – 110). There is considerable variation as to the presence, extent, and colour of the setae basal to the stigmal vein and how far the setae extend posteriorly to the medial fold. Even the type series of J. hunteri  has a few inconspicuous whitish setae extending in a band behind and basal to the stigma. A longitudinal geographical gradient is also apparent for leg color. Females of the hunteri  -complex from more southern localities typically have all the tibiae yellowish-white to white, whereas females from more northern localities, including those with extensively setose wings, typically have at least the meso- and/or metatibiae banded by an obviously darker orange to brown region subbasally to mesally ( Fig. 91View FIGURES 91 – 96). There is also considerable variation in development of plical carinae, though this does not appear to be along a geographical gradient. Most individuals of the hunteri  -complex, including the type series of J. hunteri  , J. townsendi  and J. vulgaris  , have plical carinae developed at least as short carinae within the nuchal furrow ( Fig. 109View FIGURES 105 – 110: arrow) and sometimes as variably distinctly differentiated lines extending between the nucha and anterolateral plical depressions ( Figs 95, 96View FIGURES 91 – 96). However, the different states of all three characters—fore wing setal pattern, tibial colour, and propodeal plical carinae are present in all combinations in females and thus do not appear to support presence of separate species. I presently interpret observed variation to reflect a single highly variable species that extends from the United States through Central and South America and the Caribbean. Molecular analyses could provide additional evidence, though genetic variation should also be expected over such a large geographical range. The very few individuals of J. vulgaris  known from St. Vincent share an unusually short malar space ( Figs 105–107View FIGURES 105 – 110) relative to most other hunteri  -group individuals from continental America ( Fig. 88View FIGURES 85 – 90). The malar space of females of the type series of J. vulgaris  is 0.58–0.61× the width of an eye. The malar space is usually obviously greater than 0.6× the width of an eye for continental specimens of J. hunteri  , though a female from Tobago (Map 4) I assign to J. hunteri  has the malar space only about 0.66× the width of the eye. Relative length of the malar space may well represent yet another variable, but continuous feature that is partly correlated with small body size or populational differences across its range. However, length of the malar space of the type series of J. vulgaris  is somewhat anomalous relative to most continental specimens. Because of the implications synonymy of J. hunteri  under J. vulgaris  would have for the extensive biological literature of this economically important weevil parasitoid, I prefer to retain both names as valid until species status of the hunteri  -complex can be examined further through molecular analyses.

Antenna ( Figs 97, 99View FIGURES 97 – 104) with at least scape, pedicel and anelli yellow to yellowish-orange, the flagellum often somewhat darker, at least distally, but at most brownish-yellow.

Mesosoma. Tegula yellow. Pronotum sometimes more or less distinctly carinate, but at least with abruptly angulate or raised ridge differentiating collar from collum, and margin incised laterally so as to be variably distinctly emarginate ( Fig. 100View FIGURES 97 – 104). Mesopectus with at most slight, horizontal undulation across femoral depression at level of mesocoxa, but with carinate anterior margin of femoral depression ( Figs 101, 102View FIGURES 97 – 104: arrows) continuous ventrally anterior to mesocoxa so as to differentiate variably conspicuous mesosternal shelf, and with setal line obviously separated from anterior angle of mesocoxa ( Fig. 102View FIGURES 97 – 104). Fore wing ( Fig. 104View FIGURES 97 – 104) with costal cell completely bare; disc (excluding admarginal setae) completely bare to level of base of marginal vein and glabrous to at least level of apex of stigmal vein anterior to medial fold (membrane usually with variably distinct spots representing remains of setal pores), and medial fold often with row of setae on ventral surface; dorsal surface sometimes with row of very short setae on cubital fold and sometimes with very short setae posterior to cubital fold; surface distal to stigmal vein variably distinctly setose, at least on ventral surface; admarginal area with 6–17 setae arranged in 1, 2 or distally 3 irregular rows; marginal fringe absent from postmarginal vein to about middle of apical margin of wing, but present along posteroapical margin; smv: mv: pmv: stv about 3.0–3.6: 2.0–2.5: 1.0–1.3 (base of marginal vein measured from abrupt angle between marginal vein and parastigma because often with slender band of membrane continuous from costal cell anterior to marginal vein along part or entire length). Legs ( Fig. 97View FIGURES 97 – 104) beyond coxae, and sometimes coxae partly, yellow to yellowish-orange. Propodeum with oblique carina on callus ( Fig. 103View FIGURES 97 – 104: arrow 2) extending posterolaterally from spiracle toward and sometimes continuous with vertical, posterolateral carina ( Fig. 103View FIGURES 97 – 104: arrow 1) on callus above mesocoxa; with complete plical carina extending posteriorly to within nuchal furrow; plical region of at least larger individuals with distinct, carinate costula evenly recurved anteromesally from about midlength of plical carina, hence with quite large, obviously meshlikereticulate, depressed anterior panel that is distinctly longer laterally than medially, and with median carina anterior to and posterior of costula, though smaller individuals sometimes lacking or with only partial, indistinct costula, and with weak median carina sometimes developed only anteriorly, but then median length of plical region at least about 1.75× length of nucha.

Metasoma. Gaster ( Figs 97, 99View FIGURES 97 – 104) usually with at least venter contrasting conspicuously in colour from mesosoma, sometimes more or less uniformly dark brown with metallic blue to purple lustre laterally, but usually yellowish-orange at least ventrally and sometimes extensively yellowish-orange (usually dark brown dorsally over at least about apical half and with at least slight metallic lustre laterally when brown); ovate-lanceolate, length only about 1.8–2.0× as long as wide (excluding specimens with a strongly collapsed and compressed gaster) and with Gt 2 –Gt 4 having mediolongitudinal furrow or line of weakness ( Fig. 99View FIGURES 97 – 104) and medially emarginate posterior margins; syntergum short, transverse-triangular or at most as long as wide and setose only along extreme posterior margin (often not visible because largely overlain by penultimate tergum); cercus distinctly peglike (digitiform).

Distribution. Map 5.

MAP 5. Distribution of Jaliscoa nudipennis Bouček. 

Biology. Hosts and biology unknown, but undoubtedly a parasitoid of Curculionidae  ( Coleoptera  ) based on known host associations for other Jaliscoa  species.

Discussion. Several features more readily differentiate females of J. nudipennis  from the other recognized species of Jaliscoa  than these are from each other. However, some of the colour features are unreliable for some specimens and not all of the differential features may be visible or obvious because of the condition of air-dried specimens and/or the method of mounting. Perhaps the most easily observed and stable feature is the unique, oblique carina that extends posterolaterally from the propodeal spiracle ( Fig. 103View FIGURES 97 – 104: arrow 2). Also unique is the presence of a carinately margined mesosternal shelf ( Figs 101, 102View FIGURES 97 – 104), though this sometimes is not obvious depending on how the specimen is mounted, and a mediolongitudinally furrowed Gt 2 –Gt 4 ( Fig. 99View FIGURES 97 – 104), though this is not always apparent if the specimen is air-dried and the gaster is completely collapsed. Other differential features such as clypeal sculpture ( Fig. 98View FIGURES 97 – 104) and most gastral features represent more subtle differences.
