Chalcid - Haltichella onatas Chalcid - Haltichella onatas

Moved tentatively
Moved from Haltichella. Matches well except for antennal color.

Moved from Haltichellinae.

Moved from Chalcidid Wasps.

In this diverse subfamily. Resembles Psilochalcis, but I do not have the genus description to confirm.

See reference here.

Dennis commented on this image, saying it's recognizable by the lack of sculpture on the dorsal surface of the abdomen.

Haltichella female
The shape of the abdomen is wrong for Psilochalcis. This does indeed appear to be something in Haltichella.

Thanks Dennis
I believe I saw a key to the genus somewhere. I'll have to look it up and key it out.
