Genus Psyllaephagus Ashmead, 1900  

Comments. On a global scale, this genus comprises more than 230 species and is morphologically very diverse. It is likely that a comprehensive study on a worldwide basis will show that the genus should be divided. For instance the synonymy of Psyllencyrtus Tachikawa, 1955   , with Psyllaephagus   by TRJAPITZIN (1971) was not accepted by either TACHIKAWA (1981) or YAMAGISHI (1989). For this reason, we plan to use a more integrated approach (combined biological, molecular and morphological data) to investigate further the generic limits in this group.
