( Fig. 11 View FIGURE 11 f)

Tarytia flavo-orbitalis Cameron 1907: 589; Cremastus hymeniae Viereck 1911: 189   ; Cremastus (Tarytia) coreanus kigaonis Ushida 1932: 196   ; Diaparsis coreanus Uchida 1928: 285   ; Diaparsis coreanus kondonis Uchida 1928: 286  

Diagnosis. Trathala flavoorbitalis   has few obvious specific characters. Its coloration is somewhat variable but it may be separated from most Trathala   species in the Indian Ocean subregion by metasomal tergites I-II which are invariably black-brown while the remainder of the metasoma is orange.
