status

 

Sinophorus crassifemur (Thomson, 1887) 

Eulimneria crassifemur  : Schwangart 1918: 547, Stellwaag 1928: 663.

Eulimneria ramifemur  : Schwangart 1913: 6.

Italian distribution of reared parasitoids.

Trentino-South Tyrol: Schwangart 1913, 1918; Stellwaag 1928.

Distribution.

Transpalaeartic species widespread in Europe, present in Caucasus and Central and Far Eastern Russia as well ( Yu et al. 2012; Zwakhals and van Achterberg 2017). The report for India by Morley (1913) needs to be confirmed.

Host range.

Yu et al. (2012) list 14 host species for S. crassifemur  , including 2 Geometridae  , 2 Pieridae  , 3 Pyralidae  , 3 Tortricidae  ( Lepidoptera  ) and 4 species of Pamphiliidae  ( Hymenoptera  ).

Ecological role.

The very little information available on this species derives from Stellwaag (1928), who reports that it has been obtained by Schwangart and Catoni in April. Nevertheless, Catoni (1910, 1914, 1915), Leonardi (1925) and Boselli (1928) do not mention this species in their lists. Thompson (1946) quotes it in Austria based on an article of Schwangart (1918) who obtained it from EGVM and E. ambiguella  in Trentino. Hoffmann and Michl (2003) do not cite it. The species was also obtained from EGVM in Bulgaria ( Athanassov 1981, Zapryanov 1985).

Taxonomic notes.

Very likely the species referred as Eulimneria crassifemur  Thomson by Schwangart (1918) and Stellwaag (1928) is Sinophorus turionum  (Ratzeburg, 1844). Carlson (1979) writes: “… in literature published before the description of alkae in 1928 [ Sinophorus alkae  (Ellinger and Sachtleben, 1928) is a junior synonym of S. turionum  ] and in some literature for more than ten years thereafter, the species was misidentified as crassifemur (Thomson)". Sanborne (1984), in his review of the world species of the genus Sinophorus  Förster, 1869, indicates among the hosts of S. crassifemur  , only the web-spinning larvae of Cephalcia  sp. and Acantholyda  sp. ( Hymenoptera  Pamphiliidae  ) on Pinus  spp.
