Extralimital material examined. Trinidad, W. I., Curepe Sta. Margararita, Circ. Rd, 29.iv − 5.v. 1974, F.D. Bennett (det. JS Noyes, 1978) (1 Ψ).

Comments. Adelencyrtus quadridentatus ( Girault, 1915)   is very close to Adelencyrtus odonaspidis Fullaway   , originally described from Hawaii, if not synonymous (also see Compere & Annecke 1961; Hayat et al. 1975).
