T y p e d e s i g n a t i o n: Designation of the female holotype of B. cingulator   : (first label, printed) "Rossia / Kasan" (above the label) [18]"96 6/16" (reverse on label, handscript); (second label, printed) "Exp.

Pterostigma ( Fig. 52 View Figs 46-59 ) 2.8 times as long as wide and issuing r from its middle; r as long as width of pterostigma; 3-SR 1.36 times length of 2- SR, SR1 straight, 1.6 times as long as 3-SR and reaching tip of wing; 1-R1 1.7 times length of pterostigma ( Fig. 52 View Figs 46-59 ). First discal cell less high, 1-M 1.6 times as long as m-cu, 1-SR-M 1.45 times as long as 1-M ( Fig. 53 View Figs 46-59 ).

First tergite ( Fig. 54 View Figs 46-59 ) chracteristic in form: broadest anteriorly between pair of spiracles, beyond spiracles narrowing, tergite 1.4 times as long as broad between spiracles and 1.9 times as long as broad behind, polished. Second tergite antero-laterally, further tergites nearly entirely desclerotized; third tergite almost twice as long as second tergite, suture

between tergites 2-3 indistinct ( Fig. 54 View Figs 46-59 ). Hypopygium pointed, ovipositor sheath as long as hind tarsomeres 1-3 combined, end of ovipositor pointed ( Fig. 55 View Figs 46-59 ).

Body black, desclerotized part of tergites straw yellow. Antenna blackish. Oral organs yellow, inner margin of eye rusty. Tegula blackish. Legs yellow, hind coxa basally brownish. Wings faintly fumous, pterostigma brown, veins yellowish to light brown.

Variable features of the females (41). Similar to the female holotype. Body (2-) 2.4-3 mm long. Antenna with (22-)24-34 antennomeres. Head in dorsal view 1.8-1.9(-2) times as broad as long, temple rarely less receded ( Fig. 60 View Figs 60-70 ). Mesosoma in lateral view 1.5-1.8 times as long as high. Hind femur 3.4-3.5 times as long as broad, frequently broadest medially ( Fig. 56 View Figs 46-59 ). Second submarginal cell of fore wing short, 3-SR somewhat longer than 2-SR (3, Fig. 57 View Figs 46-59 ). First tergite frequently less narrowing ( Fig. 58 View Figs 46-59 ). Legs more or less darkening to black(ish) (melanic form).

D e s c r i p t i o n of the male (34): Similar to the female. Body 1.8-3 mm long. Antenna more or less longer than body and with 22-29(-36) antennomeres. Flagellomeres more than twice (2.1-2.4 times) as long as broad. Head in dorsal view (1.7-)1.8-2 times as broad as long, temple less receded ( Fig. 61 View Figs 60-70 ) to receded ( Fig. 47 View Figs 46-59 ). Hind femur usually broadest medially ( Fig. 56 View Figs 46-59 ). Second submarginal cell as in female ( Fig. 52 View Figs 46-59 ) or rarely long: 3-SR 1.5 times as long as 2-SR, SR1 1.5 times length of 3-SR and r sometimes issuing proximally from middle of pterostigma ( Fig. 62 View Figs 60-70 ). First tergite beyond spiracles either narrowing ( Figs 54, 58 View Figs 46-59 ) or with parallel sides, breadth of tergite variable ( Figs 63, 64 View Figs 60-70 ). Legs variably yellow to darkening brownish to blackish. Wings subfumous to fumous.

R e m a r k s: Within the subgenus Osculobracon   the species B. cingulator   is closely related to B. osculator NEES   (this two species form a species-group together with further two species, B. pelliger TOBIAS   and B. repetekiensis TOBIAS   , under the name osculator species-group); the two species are distinguished by the features keyed: 1 (2) First tergite usually 1.8-1.9(-2) times, rarely 1.7 times, as long as broad behind,

beyond spiracles more or less narrowing ( Figs 54, 58 View Figs 46-59 ) or (nearly) parallel-sided

( Fig. 63, 64 View Figs 60-70 ). Temple in dorsal view receded variably ( Figs 47 View Figs 46-59 , 60, 61 View Figs 60-70 ). Mesosoma

in lateral view 1.5-1.8 times as long as high. Hind femur 3.4-3.5 times as long as

broad either distally or medially and not parallel-sided ( Figs 50, 56 View Figs 46-59 ). Claw less

downcurved, its basal lobe less distinct ( Fig. 51 View Figs 46-59 ). Legs usually yellow.: (1.8-2-

) 2.4-3 mm ..............................................................B. (Osc.) cingulator SZÉPLIGETI 1901   2 (1) First tergite (1.2-)1.3-1.6(-1.7) times as long as broad behind, beyond spiracles

parallel-sided ( Figs 65, 66 View Figs 60-70 ). Temple in dorsal view less receded to rounded ( Figs 59 View Figs 46-59 ,

67 View Figs 60-70 ). Mesosoma in lateral view 1.2-1.4 times as long as high. Hind femur 3.7-3.8

times as long as broad medially and nearly parallel-sided ( Fig. 68, 69 View Figs 60-70 ). Claw more

downcurved, its basal lobe distinct ( Fig. 70 View Figs 60-70 ). Hind two pairs of legs more or less

blackish.: (1.5-)2-3(-3.5) mm .................................. B. (Osc.) osculator NEES 1811
