( Figs. 1–8 View FIGURES 1 – 8 )

Diglyphosema anastrephae Rhower, 1919: 156 Lopheucoila anastrephae ; Weld 1951: 224 Diagnosis. Body stout. Head ( Fig. 1 View FIGURES 1 – 8 ) with lateral margin of occiput well defined. Eyes without pubescence. Antennae of female ( Fig. 2 View FIGURES 1 – 8 ) glabrous, widened towards apex and laterally compressed, club 9 ­segmented, inconspicuous. Antennae of male ( Fig. 3 View FIGURES 1 – 8 ) with the first flagellomere slightly curved, distally swollen, slightly longer than second. Dorsal margin of pronotal plate ( Fig. 4 View FIGURES 1 – 8 ) with three emarginations; sides of pronotum with longitudinal carinae. Mesoscutum ( Figs. 5 and 6 View FIGURES 1 – 8 ) strongly convex in profile, median mesoscutal carina present. Dorsal part of scutellum ( Fig. 6 View FIGURES 1 – 8 ) striate radialy; dorsoposterior part in dorsal view emarginate, four­angled posterolaterally. Scutellar plate ( Figs. 5 and 6 View FIGURES 1 – 8 ) small, quite elevated, with a tooth overhanging the circular pit, which is distinctly removed from the posterior margin of the plate. Mesopleuron ( Fig. 5 View FIGURES 1 – 8 ) with subalar pit. Metapleuron ( Fig. 5 View FIGURES 1 – 8 ) sculptured. Forewings ( Fig. 7 View FIGURES 1 – 8 ) completely hyaline, punctate, apical margin with hair fringe; marginal cell open anteriorly and partly at base; veins colourless. Metacoxa ( Fig. 8 View FIGURES 1 – 8 ) with a band of hairs along the posterior margin. Third abdominal tergum of metasoma ( Fig. 5 View FIGURES 1 – 8 ) with a thin hairy ring and two sulci striate at base; metasoma distally punctate.

Geographical distribution. Neotropical Region: Mexico, Costa Rica, Trinidad & Tobago, Panama, Venezuela, Brazil, Peru and Argentina ( Gallardo & Diaz 1999). In Brazil it is distributed throughout the States of Mato Grosso do Sul, São Paulo, Santa Catarina (Guimarães et al. 2000) and Minas Gerais (new record).

Hosts. Tephritidae : Anastrepha sp. (in Rhower 1919); A. fraterculus (in Weld 1951); A. pseudoparallela and A. amita (in Guimarães et al. 2000 a). Lonchaeidae : Neosilba batesi (in Wharton et al. 1998) and Neosilba spp. (in Guimarães et al. 1999; 2000 a).

The material studied was obtained mainly from puparia of lonchaeids on Passifloraceae and Rutaceae .

Remarks. Lopheucoila Weld, 1951 is represented by three neotropical species: L. mexicana Weld 1951 , L. anastrephae and L. truncicola . However, Gallardo and Diaz (1999) suggested that L. truncicola could be a synonymous of L. anastrephae .

Type material. Lopheucoila anastrephae : TRINIDAD & TOBAGO. Holotype, VII. 1917, (1 female), coll. Urich. ( USNM).
