Anastatus (Anastatus)   ; Gibson 1995: 105, 111.


For a complete listing of the extensive generic synonymy of Anastatus   see Gibson (1995) and Noyes (2019). Bouček (1977) recognized two subgenera in Anastatus   , the nominate subgenus and A. (Cladanastatus)   Bouček, 1979). Currently, the nominate subgenus comprises all presently described species except for the type species of A. (Cladanastatus)   . Females and males of Anastatus   and A. (Anastatus)   can be distinguished from those of other genera of Eupelminae  using the key by Gibson (1995).
