Holotype ♀.

Alajuela, Sector Rincon Rain Forest, Selva, 10.92291, -85.31877, 410 meters, caterpillar collection date: 05/viii/2017, wasp eclosion date: 21/viii/2017; nine wasps eclosed from 11 cocoons. Depository: CNC.

Host data. Gregarious parasitoid of Drephalys   Burns01 ( Hesperiidae   ) feeding on mature leaves of Vochysia guatemalensis   ( Vochysiaceae  ).

Caterpillar and holotype voucher codes. 17-SRNP-80872, DHJPAR0061668.

Paratypes.

Eight specimens, same data as holotype. Depository: CNC.

Other specimens.

There are three specimens from French Guiana (e.g., ASNUR330-11) and one from Argentina (BIOUG13458-C11) in the same BIN, none of which we consider to be conspecific with the Costa Rican specimens. Images on BOLD show that the French Guiana specimens have the terminal flagellomeres yellow. There are no images for the Argentinian specimen, but its locality makes it unlikely to be conspecific.

Etymology.

Bracon mariamartachavarriae   is named in honor of Maria Marta Chavarria in recognition of her persistent efforts as co-coordinator of ACG research; intense education efforts to adults, teenagers, and schoolchildren about ACG biology both terrestrial and marine; maintenance and data management of ACG weather data; ACG biopolitics; and rescue of key ACG animals.
