Eupelminus tarsatus Waterston, 1916a: 389   –392. Holotype ♀ (BMNH; type no. 5.968). Eupelminus tarsatus   ; Waterston, 1916b: 123 –126. Subsequent description. Eupelmella tarsata   ; Hedqvist, 1970: 435.

Type material. This species was based on a single female. The holotype is labelled “ Type [circular, red-bordered label] / NYASALAND | LAKE NYASA, | MONKEY BAY, | Pupa taken | 21:V:1915 | Emerged 30:V:15 | DR. W.A. LAMBORN [“112” written along one end of label] / Parasitic on | Glossina   | morsitans   | Westw. / J. WATERSTON DET. | Eupelminus   | tarsatus, Wtst.   | ♀ / B. M. TYPE | HYM. | 5.968 / NHMUK 010353718”. It is card-mounted and partly covered by a thin film of glue ( Figs 138, 139 View FIGURES 138, 139 ), is contorted, and is entire except the right antenna beyond fl5, left set of wings, apical three tarsomeres of the left front leg, left middle leg, right hind leg tarsus, and Gt2 and Gt3 are missing; the pronotum is also displaced from the propleura ( Fig. 138 View FIGURES 138, 139 ).

Remarks. Waterston (1961a, fig. 8) provided a dorsal habitus line illustration of the holotype and Waterston (1961b) additional figures of the wings (fig. 1) and dorsal mesosoma of the female (fig. 2, left) as well as the dorsal mesosoma (fig. 2, right) and fore wing (fig. 3) of the male when he newly described the male and provided additional notes on the female. Although the species of A. ( Parasolindenia   ) are unrevised, one differential feature of females appears to be gastral setal pattern. Unfortunately, Gt2 and Gt3 are now missing from the holotype ( Fig. 138 View FIGURES 138, 139 ). The original description states that “anteriorly the pubescence is sparser, but dense posteriorly (from the fourth segment)” (Waterston 1961a: 392).
