( Fig. 10 View FIGURE 10 )

Phaenoglyphis villosa   is an adventive species which is cosmopolitan around the world ( Ferrer-Suay et al. 2012). Phaenoglyphis   can be easily separated from Alloxysta   by the presence of a horizontal sulcus (furrow) on the mesopleuron. It is very polyphagous, and has been reared from several aphidiines ( Braconidae   : Aphidiinae   ), including species of Diaeretiella   , Aphidius   , Ephedrus   and Trioxys   ( Valentine 1975; Carver 1992). It is widespread in New Zealand. North Island: AK, BP, ND, WI, WO. South Island: BR, MC, NN. Offshore Islands: CH.
