Diagnosis. Body stout. Head ( Fig. 32 View FIGURES 32 ­ 39. A g ) with lateral margin of occiput not well defined. Eyes without pubescence. Antennae of female ( Fig. 33 View FIGURES 32 ­ 39. A g ) pilose, cilindrical, widened towards apex, club 7 ­segmented, conspicuous. Antennae of male ( Fig. 34 View FIGURES 32 ­ 39. A g ) with the first flagellomere slightly curved, distally swollen, longer than second. Dorsal margin of pronotal plate ( Fig. 35 View FIGURES 32 ­ 39. A g ) concave; sides of pronotum smooth. Mesoscutum ( Figs. 36 and 37 View FIGURES 32 ­ 39. A g ) slightly convex in profile, smooth. Dorsal part of scutellum ( Fig. 37 View FIGURES 32 ­ 39. A g ) areolate­rugose, dorsoposterior part in dorsal view rounded. Scutellar plate ( Figs. 36 and 37 View FIGURES 32 ­ 39. A g ) very large, flat, with an elliptical pit close to the posterior margin of the plate. Mesopleuron ( Fig. 36 View FIGURES 32 ­ 39. A g ) without subalar pit. Metapleuron ( Fig. 36 View FIGURES 32 ­ 39. A g ) almost smooth. Forewings ( Fig. 38 View FIGURES 32 ­ 39. A g ) completely hyaline, pubescent, apical margin with hair fringe; marginal cell anteriorly closed; veins darkened. Metacoxa ( Fig. 39 View FIGURES 32 ­ 39. A g ) with a small tuft of hairs posterodorsally. Third abdominal tergum of metasoma ( Fig. 36 View FIGURES 32 ­ 39. A g ) with a dense hairy ring at base; metasoma distally smooth.

Note. The coloration and size of the specimens of A. pelleranoi collected in Brazil varie without correlation with biogeographic factors.

Geographical distribution. Neotropical Region: Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, Peru, Bolivia and Argentina ( Diaz & Gallardo 2001). In Brazil it is distributed throughout the States of Amazonas, Pará, Amapá, Bahia, Goiás, Mato Grosso do Sul, Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul ( Guimarães et al. 2000 a).

Hosts. Tephritidae : Ceratitis capitata , Rhagolethis turpiniae , Anastrepha ludens , A. obliqua , A. serpentina , A. striata , A. distincta , A. fraterculus , A. amita , A. bahiensis . Lonchaeidae : Neosilba spp (in Diaz & Gallardo 2001).

Remarks. Ganaspis Förster 1869 is a cosmopolitan genus, which includes several species. Nordlander (in Ovruski 1994) suggested that the neotropical species Ganaspis pelleranoi ( Brèthes 1924) should also be placed in Aganaspis Lin, 1987 and Ovruski (1994) established this combination.
