Diagnosis

Cotesia glomerata  can be separated from all other species of Cotesia  currently described from Australia and Papua New Guinea by the following combination of characters: ventral hypopygium deeply emarginate; T1 parallel sided; fore wing 2RS not creating a ‘stub’ at junction with r; T3 only sparsely setose, mostly in posterior third; anteromescutum punctate but smoother than most other species.
