Biology.

Parasitoid of aquatic leaf-mining flies ( Ephydridae   ): Hydrellia lagarosiphon   on Lagarosiphon major   ( Hydrocharitaceae  ) and Hydrellia egeriae   on Egeria densa   ( Hydrocharitaceae  ).

Distribution.

South Africa.

Comments.

This species exhibits a disparate range of colour forms, from being completely black (Figs 14 A-F View Figure 14 ; 15 A-F View Figure 15 ; 16A, B View Figure 16 ) through to being completely yellowish-orange, as in the holotype (Figs 10 A-F View Figure 10 ; 11 A-D View Figure 11 ; 12 A, B View Figure 12 ) with intermediate grades present (Figs 13A, B View Figure 13 ; 16E, F View Figure 16 ). This extent of intra-specific colour difference is also present in the Palaearctic type species of the genus, A. descrescens   (Nees, 1812 [1811]) (van Achterberg and Prinsloo 2012).
