Microplitis Foerster, 1863 

DAPSILOTOMA  Cameron, 1906


Unless noted otherwise, distribution data taken from Nixon (1970). Papp (1984) extensively revised the synonymy (as Microgaster  species: unfortunately at that time Microplitis  was briefly being regarded as a synonym of Microgaster  , but this was subsequently rescinded by Opinion 1510 ( ICZN 1988), whose conclusions are largely followed here.

species of Microplitis  excluded from the British and Irish list:

[eremitus Reinhard, 1880] No evidence that this species has occurred in Britain or Ireland; probably listed in Shenefelt (1973) and Huddleston (1978) because Nixon (1970) reported its distribution as north-west European.
