status

 

Subfamily Leptogastrinae  

The Leptogastrinae   comprise 18 valid genera, 6 of which occur in the Nearctic Region ( Geller­Grimm 2003). For the Nearctic Region, pupal cases of only 2 species in 2 genera have been described. The pupal case of Apachekolos tenuipes (Loew)   is described herein for the first time. Leptogaster flavipes Loew   was described briefly in Malloch (1917) and Bromley (1946). The following tentative key is based on information presented in the aforementioned publications, as well as Melin (1923), Séguy (1927), and Zinov'eva (1959) concerning Leptogaster species   not found in the Nearctic Region.
