Microplitis sp. near lugubris  Fig. 29


NEA. High Arctic and some additional, unpublished records in BOLD from northern Canada (mainland).


Five males from Bylot Island; we have also seen numerous specimens from Churchill, Manitoba, Canada (which have in BOLD the interim name " Microplitis  jft04"). This species is morphologically similar to M. lugubris  , but we consider it a different species based on the significant difference in the DNA barcodes (59 base pairs, representing 8.9% of differences in the DNA barcoding region). The available DNA sequences for this species correspond in BOLD to BIN BOLD:AAB1314.
