Euodynerus Dalla Torre


Genus Euodynerus Dalla Torre  

This is a moderately large genus, with more than 100 described species. It is cosmopolitan, with the greatest number of species found in the Palearctic. The American species have not been revised. Most of the American species are Nearctic, with three hitherto known from the Caribbean. The new species is most similar to E. haitiensis (Bequaert and Salt)   , described from Haiti, but that species is ferruginous and yellow, not black and yellow with limited reddish markings. Genaro (2004) described a new species from Cuba.
