Flowering Plant Hosts of Adult Hymenopteran Parasitoids of Central Illinois
By Tooker, J.F. and L.M. Hanks
Annals of the Entomological Society of America, 2000
A large comprehensive study involving 151 parasitoid species over several parasitoid families and records covering over 33 years of observation and over 15,000 insect visitors. Provides persuasive data that Apiaceae (the carrot family) is the plant family by far most widely used by parasitoid wasp adults for feeding.

Solitary Wasps: Behavior and Natural History (Cornell Series in Arthropod Biology)
By Kevin M. O'Neill
Comstock Publishing, 2000
Contains information concerning the behavior of a variety of solitary wasps (e.g. sphecid, pompilid, and vespid wasps). This is not, however, an identification guide and this book does not treat what are considered parasitic wasps (e.g. chalcid and ichneumon wasps). Includes a number of summarizing tables as well as case studies of particular species.

Revision of the Nearctic GLYPHICNEMIS Foerster (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae, Gelinae)
By John Luhman
Center for Systematic Entomology, Gainesville, Florida (Insecta Mundi), 1986
The Nearctic genus GLYPHICNEMIS Foerster is revised with a key to the species.

FULL TEXT (11 pages)

GLYPHICNEMIS Foerster is a small Holarctic genus in the subtribe Endaseina of the Gelini. Nearctic species were placed in PHYGADEUON Gravenhorst until Townes (1944) placed them in the subgenus GLYPHICNEMIS within ENDASYS Foerster. However, earlier Cushman (1925) had transferred PHYGADEUON CRASSIPES Provancher, a junior synonym of G. MANDIBULARIS (Cresson), to GLYPHICNEMIS, and the Palearctic species, at first placed in PHYGADEUON, were included by Habermehl (1916) in GLYPHICNEMIS, reduced to a subgenus within STYLOCRYPTUS Thomson (1873).
