Eulophinusia Girault

Eulophinusia Girault, 1913a: 457 . Type species: Eulophinusia cydippe Girault , by original designation and monotypy.

Alophomopsis Girault, 1913b: 281-282 . Type species: Alophomopsis spenceri Girault , by original designation and monotypy. Synonymized by Bouček (1988: 624).

Grotiusella Girault, 1913b: 283 . Type species: Grotiusella fasciatifrons Girault , by original designation and monotypy. Synonymized by Bouček (1988: 624). Eulophinusia was synonymised under Grotiusella by Girault (1915: 288), but Eulophinusia has priority over Grotiusella ( Bouček 1988: 624) .

Elachertonecremnus Girault, 1913b: 293 . Type species: Elachertonecremnus circumjectus Girault , by monotypy. Synonymized by Bouček (1988: 624).

Babinda Girault, 1922: 100 . Type species: Babinda murarriensis Girault , by monotypy. Synonymized by Bouček (1988: 624).

Arunus Jaikishan Singh and Khan, 1997: 9 . Type species: Arunus indicus Jaikishan Singh & Khan , by original designation and monotypy. Synonymized by Narendran (2011:182-183).

Pradeshia Koçak and Kemal, 2008: 7 . Replacement name for Arunus Jaikishan Singh & Khan, 1997 . Synonymized by Narendran (2011:182-183).

Diagnosis. Sculpture on mesoscutellum intricate and even jigsaw-like ( Figs 7, 9 View FIGURES 6–9 ) - not as reticulation, which is the usual mesoscutellar sculpture in the Eulophidae ; axillae strongly advanced forwards so that at least ⅔ are in front of anterior margin of mesoscutellum ( Figs 6, 8 View FIGURES 6–9 ); flagellum in both sexes short and stout with transverse flagellomeres ( Figs 3, 4 View FIGURES 1–5 ); head with transverse yellow markings on frons ( Fig. 5 View FIGURES 1–5 ); postmarginal vein short, about as long as stigmal vein ( Fig. 1 View FIGURES 1–5 ); males with unbranched antennae ( Fig. 4 View FIGURES 1–5 ); small size (1.1–1.4 mm).

Distribution. Australia ( Bouček 1988), India ( Narendran 2011), and newly recorded here: Canada, Costa Rica, and the Dominican Republic.

Biology. Bouček (1988) mentions Australian species reared as parasitoids of small moths: unidentified spe- cies of Tortricidae , “cotton webworm”, and gregarious parasitoids on the soybean moth ( Aproaerema simplexella ) ( Gelechiidae ); specimens of the Indian species Eulophinusia indica were reared from leaf galls of Trioza fletcheri Crawford ( Hemiptera : Triozidae ) (Jaikishan Singh & Khan 1997). While there is just one rearing of the species described here, it is clearly a hyperparasitoid of a gregarious microgastrine small braconid wasp, Hypomicrogaster largus Valerio , that had parasitized a small leaf-rolling depressariid moth ( Anadasmus Janzen 11).
