Genus Microterys Thomson 

Sceptrophorus  Fӧrster, 1856: 34. Type species: Encyrtus sceptriger  Fӧrster, by subsequent designation by Asheamd 1900: 381. Name rejected in favour of Microterys Thomson  by International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, 1978: 99–100.

Microterys Thomson, 1876: 155  . Type species: Encyrtus sylvius Dalman  , by subsequent designation by Asheamd 1900: 390. Synonymy with Sceptrophorus  implied by Ferrière 1955: 361.

Apentelicus Fullaway, 1913: 26  . Type species: Apentelicus kotinskyi Fullaway  , by original designation and monotypy. Synonymy with Microterys  by Peck 1963: 386.

Paraphaenodiscoides Mercet, 1921: 378  . Type species: Paraphaenodiscoides dimorphus Mercet  , by original designation and monotypy. Synonymy with Microterys  by Noyes 1981: 180.

Birous Erd  ӧs and Novicky, 1955: 196. Type species: Birous anomalus Erdӧs and Novicky  , by original designation and monotypy. Synonymy with Microterys  by Trjapitzin 1989: 162.

Diagnoses of Microterys  have been given by Xu (2002), Zhang & Huang (2004) and Noyes (2010), and are not repeated here. Systematically, Microterys  is placed in the tribe Discodini  (=Microteryini Hoffer and Microteryni Erdӧs & Novicky), which was defined by Noyes (2010). Within Discodini  , Microterys  is very close to Aschitus Mercet  and Trichomasthus Thomson  ( Jensen 1989; Noyes 2010). In addition, Submicroterys Xu  ( Xu & Huang 2004) and Clivia Zhang & Huang (2005)  is also close to Microterys  . Presently we treat Microterys  and Submicroterys  as distinct genera pending further systematic study, possibly with help of molecular data.
