Synonyms and other taxonomic changes
Zelomorpha Ashmead 1900
Based on morphological evidence, Chou & Sharkey (1989) synonymized Zelomorpha with Coccygidium de Saussure 1892, considering Zelomorpha to be a junior synonym.
Based on a detailed combined morphological and molecular analysis, Sharkey et al. (2006) recognized that Zelomorpha and Coccygidium are each monophyletic and should be considered separate genera.(1)
Identification
Similar to Coccygidium. See Coccygidium ID.
