Figs. 214 –216

Species of Paraulacini   have been reared from galls on Nothofagus spp.   in southern Chile and Argentina. However, it is unclear whether these wasps are gall inducers, inquilines of chalcidoid gall inducers, or parasitoids of chalcidoid gall inducers ( Ronquist et al. 2015). Paraulax   was described by Kieffer (1904) and was tentatively placed in Aylacini   ( Dalla Torre and Kieffer 1910; Weld 1952), later in Cynipini ( Ronquist 1999)   , then in Pediaspidini ( Liljeblad et al. 2008)   . Nieves-Aldrey et al. (2009), based on biology and phylogeny, circumscribed Paraulacini   to accommodate species in Paraulax   as well as the new genus Cecinothofagus   .

Biology. Unknown. Reared from galls on Nothofagus   trees ( Nothofagaceae   ).

Distribution. Southern South America. Relevant literature. Nieves-Aldrey et al. (2009) summarizes the group completely.
