Notes

The current usage of the name Microgaster  was restored by Opinion 1510 ( ICZN 1988), after temporarily being applied to the genus here called Microplitis  (with Microgaster  as currently understood being referred to Lissogaster  ). This was an unfortunate name change as it coincided with Papp’s ( Papp 1976, Papp 1984) revisions of the genera, as well as several other important papers. Unless noted otherwise, distribution data taken from NMS, Nixon (1968) and Shaw (2012). Papp’s ( Papp 1976) subsequent revision of the genus added many species to Nixon’s ( Nixon 1968) revision, and Achterberg (1997) established the precedence of several Haliday names.

species of Microgaster  excluded from the British and Irish list:

[auriculata (Fabricius, 1804, Ichneumon  )] Listed as doubtfully British by Huddleston (1978) on the basis of Papp’s ( Papp 1976) listing of ‘?England’. No evidence that this is really a British or Irish species.

[deceptor Nixon, 1968] Listed as a British species by Huddleston (1978) in error; no evidence that this is a British or Irish species.

[fischeri Papp, 1960] British specimens, misidentified as fischeri by Nixon (1968), represented an undescribed species which was described by Shaw (2012) as raschkiellae.

[nobilis Reinhard, 1880; syn. compressifemur Fahringer, 1937] Listed as doubtfully British by Huddleston (1978) on the basis of Papp’s ( Papp 1976) listing of ‘?England’. No evidence that this is really a British or Irish species.

[postica Nees, 1834; syn. marginella Wesmael, 1837; ?ruficoxis Ruthe, 1858] Recorded as British by Marshall (1885), but probably in error as his diagnosis appears not to have been a Microgaster  species in the modern sense. Papp’s ( Papp 1976) listing of England probably simply reflects Marshall’s record, as does the listing in Huddleston (1978), and there is no evidence that this is a British or Irish species.
