Taxonomy

Spongiphoridae  , Nesogastrinae  , Nesogaster cristatus Brindle, 1976  .

Remarks

1. Both Steinmann (1989c: 404) and Hopkins et al. (2014) refer to this species as cristatus  . Brindle gives cristata  in the original description and on the 1973 determination labels.

2. In the original description, the data for F3233.524 only matches that for one of the specimens described under ‘Other material examined’ as being at MMUE, a larva.
